This summer style inspiration is brought to you by Ross Dress For Less
I don’t know a lot about “fashion”, or “dressing in a way that doesn’t look like I’m on my way to a costume party”, which is why I post so many changing room pics on my Facebook page. Most of my stay-at-home mom days call for a simple t-shirt and shorts, but some days I need to get fancy so I’ll wear my ponytail holder with the sparkly flecks.
I’ve purchased about 15 maxi dresses, all without trying them on. I see women wearing them all the time and think, “Wow – I need to buy a maxi dress so I can be 5’9 and 120 pounds and 19 too.” Then I will get home and put it on. In my mind I look just like those girls who have never had a baby or eaten a meal so large they thought their stomach might tear. But as I reveal myself to myself in the mirror my meat apron is always there to greet me, loud and proud. It’s like wearing a gigantic tent that still manages to emphasize the aftermath of each pregnancy.
Anyhoo, enter the maxi skirt, my new boyfriend (sorry Jon Hamm). Casual and fun like the maxi dress, comfy like my pjs. And all without the accompanying, “is she pregnant or not” sideways glances as you do tequila shooters. Throw it on to go to the grocery store or to a concert and no one will have any idea that you normally wear clothes that smell like feet.
The one above is $12.99 (I know) at Ross Dress For Less.
AND… right now they are running a promotion on their Facebook page. From now until June 27 you can take the “What’s Your Summer Style?” quiz, share it on your Facebook page, and they will randomly draw two, $150 shopping card winners.
You could use it to buy 11.5473441 maxi skirts. They also have maxi dresses, if you’re one of those “hey look at my perfect body” types.
