Casual Clothes Mini Challenge: Pants with a Tunic/Short Dress

I love a dress over jeans. Like seriously love love love a dress over jeans, which makes this portion of Sylvia’s Casual Clothes Mini Challenge so much fun for me. I think one of the reasons I enjoy this look so much is that it’s easy. I don’t have to worry about the dress being too short or the jeans being too tight – together, they’re just right.

This is one of my favorite dress over jeans looks. I picked up the dress from Old Navy (on sale for $3!!!!) but it’s a tad too short and thin for me for every day wear, so I pulled on a pair of flare leg jeans and wedges – perfect. I like the border print around the bottom, gives it just a little bit of bohemian flare and the cut out shoulders are just sexy.

I may have mentioned before that I’m just a tad bit obsessed with Nicole Richie. There is nothing about her style that I don’t like… Well, I didn’t like that heroine chic look or that grungy haven’t bathed in about 6 weeks look, but since becoming a momma? I’m all over her wardrobe. I even like the purple hair. Of course, there’s pretty good age gap between us {and about a hundred pounds}, so I can’t wear everything that she does but I can wear clothes that she designs. In fact, Nicole says that she wears the tunic above as a dress. I can’t. Ever. The tunic is from her line on QVC. Cute, right? I love it. Really, all I need is a big floppy hat and I’m set.

    • Hi Stacey! Isn’t the dress over jeans a fabulous way of extending your wardrobe as well? And I know it’s on trend because it’s mentioned in Glamour this month. 🙂
