I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a fan of bargain shopping. I don’t discriminate against a good sale (heavens no!) but I have a hard time perusing through multiple racks of clothes that have been grouped together in markdown fashion. Again, Anthropologie’s sale room is manageable – Forever 21 tends to send me over the edge. That’s why when I recently stopped in to Marshalls for some home goods, I surprised myself by exploring their clothing section. Another hesitation with these kinds of stores is that I don’t know which section I should be shopping in: Women’s feels too matronly and old, and Junior’s feels scandalous, so no real winners there! With a side of caution I ventured into the Junior’s section but only to peruse through items that weren’t sheer, torn, holed up, blasted in awkward pattern mixing, or pleather. And that is how I came upon this simple, no-fuss, black maxi dress.
Its jersey-cotton material is a dream for a Friday such as this one where I just want to transition into the weekend as seamlessly possible. 🙂 Happy weekend everyone!
** Also, can we discuss those comfy mint sandals above? I bought them a month ago and couldn’t wait for the warmer days to bust open the shoebox and bring them out to play. They’re such a comfortable, cheerful pair of wedges that have me excited about pairing them with all sorts of summer frocks.
