I wore this to a BBQ yesterday at my boyfriend's sister's house in the suburbs.
The dress is from H&M. Back in May, I stopped in H&M one afternoon and saw this dress. I liked it right away, but since I wasn't really looking to buy anything that day, I didn't get it.
The following Thursday, about a week after not buying the dress, I went to yoga in the morning before work. I wore my yoga clothes to the studio and carried my work clothes (a blue dress, black tights and black long-sleeved tee) in a bag. After class, I got dressed and realized there was a huge spot in the center of my dress. Not wanting to go to work with a stain on my dress, I made a quick stop into H&M (which conveniently opens at 9:00 a.m.) to pick up this dress. I already had the black tights and long-sleeved tee on, so I just slipped this right over it. What a great excuse to buy a new dress!
Yesterday morning, I was looking at The Clothes Horse and saw her wearing same red H&M dress. She has worn the dress many times this summer and I love her different looks with it. I realized I hadn't worn my red dress in a while, so I was inspired to pull it out and wear it to the Saturday night barbeque.
