The Sack Dress, Cuter Than A Bathrobe

This is the type of outfit I wouldn’t normally blog about.  It’s essentially a t-shirt, only long enough that I don’t have to wear pants with it.  It’s essentially a sack, a few steps up from a garbage bag (see the saggy diaper butt after a day of wearing it??)  But it’s a cute garbage bag.  It’s cool and easy – perfect for a poolside cover-up, quick enough for oversleeping or last minute errands first thing in the morning, and cuter than your bathrobe.

Dress: Banana Republic Factory (got it on sale for $21, although it retails for $49.99) (similar here)

Scarf: Forever21 (similar here)
Bracelets: Banana Republic Factory and JCrew (similar here and here)
Sandals: Candies (similar here)
Clutch: Coach (similar here)
Sunglasses: Nordstrom

So why am I letting you see this dress?  Believe it or not, I have received more compliments on this dress than anything else in my closet this summer.  One evening, the Mr and I were lounging on the couch watching   the television (somewhat aimlessly) when he turned to me and said, “Hey, I wanted to tell you something.”  Like a bunny, my ears perked up, alert to the sound of an impending, ominous conversation.

“I really like you in that dress.”


“I don’t know, maybe it’s the way I can grab your butt……”

My head still hurts from what may very well be the world’s most exaggerated eye roll.

And I thought, “Out of all the things I wear, this is what you like??”

p.s. I’m linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Transatlantic Blonde for WIWW.

    I love the look! Comfy yet cute! My hubs would probably say the same thing, men are so confusing sometimes 😉

  11. Carolyn says:

    Men. Well you have to wear it again for sure. It looks great on you for sure. Don't you love when you get something cute on sale?

    What a great dress! Something about stripes and a comfy silhouette – so perfect for summer. 😉

  13. haha! I like easy dresses like that too. They're the best when you just need something quick and easy to thrown on. Apparently, they have other advantages, as well. :)

    Cute and simple. My latest blog post is about an outfit that I wouldn't normally blog about either and it has the same type of vibe as this one :)

  15. Andrea M says:

    Too funny! Isn't it crazy what the husbands like & how simple it usually is compared to all the effort we put in for other outfits that they don't even notice. New follower of your blog from WIWW!
