I mentioned earlier that I was looking for a replacement for my Dresses That Will Never Die and I think (hope!) I found it. I returned a few unfortunate purchases at Old Navy and picked up this dress instead:
Here it is on me last weekend:
As long as it doesn't shrink drastically (fingers crossed), I'll probably pick up another one in this color:
It's short, but the empire waist fit is forgiving. It's comfortable and washable and best of all, I can still wear a real bra under it. Also, it's all of $20. (And will probably be cheaper if you wait five minutes.)
This tends to be my summer uniform when I'm not at work - simple cotton jersey dress and flat sandals with a light cardigan in my bag in case of air conditioning overload.
