Ladylike Spade


The previous weekend’s hot weather dress challenges made think a little about my dress up wardrobe. About which pieces I have that work the best and which ones need to hit the Good Will pile. I have a couple goodies that I will take meticulous care of because I worry I’ll never find anything again that fits so well. For me the constant challenge is finding dresses that make my ladies look nice (not huge) and doesn’t accentuate my abdominal issues.

It also makes me so happy when a single piece can create an entire look. It just makes life that much easier. My version of accessorizing is actually brushing my hair so when I dress up the pieces I wear need to do the heavy lifting for me. Ideally I should be able to put shoes on and head out the door. For this nothing works better than a super simple ladylike dress.


For guaranteed ladylike results there is the go-to Kate Spade. She covers off on some essentials: empire waists, stripes, sheath cuts, classic flares, polka dots and gingham.  Not sure I can actually drop significant bucks on a dress that I wear only a handful of times but these make for excellent inspiration. They also make me contemplate the idea that sometimes you get what you pay for.
