This one time, I matched my couch


I didn't realize my dress matched the color of my couch exactly until I looked at these pictures. Now, I'm going to pretend this was on purpose. I am super in control of my life. I think of these things. Obviously, a couch should match your lazy-day maxi-dress. Clearly. And so mine does.


You might have noticed, you've already seen this dress. See, the thing is, I wear my clothes more than once. You probably do too. I'm pretty sure I might wear this dress every Saturday and/or Sunday for the rest of my life. So if you're following this blog, perhaps you should make friends with this dress. Why wouldn't you? It's a very nice dress. It totally wants to be friends with you. Seriously. It's always talking about you and saying that you're just really very lovely. 


The reason I decided to take pictures of my look was actually my crazy hair. I have been obsessing over buns for months now, but I haven't actually been putting my hair into a bun. And then, one lazy day (today), I fell in love with my accidental messy bun. I think it looks great! It's definitely worth growing out my hair. Sunshine Dog agrees. She expresses this by climbing up on the arm of the couch and giving me a look that says "PET ME. Seriously. Pet Me."

I like the couch/dress matching business. I know a man who matches his pocket square to his coffee mug. Your bun has the perfect mix of mess and control to look fabulous!

Hear, hear! We re-wearers need a champion, and I think you're it. From this day forward, I will no longer apologize to my readers for wearing the same two skirts, over and over. I love the dress and encourage you to wear it as much as you want (or at least until you need a new sofa).

Ohh, what a comfy looking dress! I am a firm believer in re-wearing a garment of clothing until it's just no longer re-wearable. Your dog is a cutie pie!

Hello dress. Nice to meet you. Come here often?

Oh, and is that your sister over there? *pointing to couch*

It is so nice to have an at-home dress. An old friend that you can count on to make you feel comfortable and beautiful. And you look very comfortable and beautiful. <3

Your dress seems to have a lovely personality. Can't wait to see her more!

I seriously re-wear things - some things I literally re-wear for like YEARS... :D

It is rather fancy that you've matched your furniture to your frock - not all girls can do that.

Also - I am glad I'm not the only girl whose lazy day clothes are frocks. So many people don't understand that I feel more comfortable in a frock or skirt than trousers/jeans (ew!!).

I love this dress and your hair does look wonderful! If you've never heard of it, you should google "the sock bun". It basically revolutionized the way I do my hair.

Hahaha! That's hilarious your dress and couch match. They're such a lovely shade of blue! Comfy weekend outfits are pretty great.

I adore the colour of your dress and couch! :) love your messy bun too! I'm a little obsessed with buns at the moment :)

Love, Rachel

Oh, don't worry, me and your dress go way back, we're old pals!

I think I might wear my dark green maxi skirt and my Star Wars t-shirt every weekend for the rest of my life. My Star Wars t-shirt should probably meet your dress; they could compare notes on how it feels to be adored, and how they cope with the fame.
