Comfort first

As I get older, I choose comfort first. Okay, let’s not bring my age into this, I’ve pretty much always chosen comfort (which is why I don’t own a blazer, I find them really constricting and uncomfortable). But I try not to sacrifice style for the sake of comfort. Except on weekends when it’s nothing but leggings or yoga pants and giant shapeless T-shirts.

So that’s why I love knit dresses; in my closet you’ll pretty much find nothing but knit dresses in various colours and prints.

Anthropologie Daily Gathering Dress (Bailey 44) // J.Crew Factory Clare cardigan // Club Monaco mint statement necklace // Wolford tights // Tory Burch Reva flats

(I played with the lighting using iPhoto so the detail on the dress actually shows up, but it got a little weird and grainy combined with Google’s enhancement.)

Unfortunately knits start to lose their shape over the years. I’m debating whether this dress is past its expiry date (I bought it in 2010 – I hold onto clothes I love a long time). It may still be ok, but the V-neck keeps getting lower and lower. Bandeau required, or completely inappropriate at work.


I’m still trying to figure out the best place to take photos in my condo, with the camera equipment I have at my disposal and the light I have at available. Getting closer, I’ll just remember to set the camera a bit higher next time so it’s at a more flattering angle, and push the ottoman/storage bench out of the way.


  1. First, your hair looks fabulous!

    I love that dress. I do not think it is time to get rid of it. It looks good. I like the color. It is probably a great one to accessorize. I like your flats and your necklace, too! I did not even notice the neckline until you mentioned it. But you solved the problem brilliantly!


    1. Aw, thanks Jenni about the hair! I actually think it's a disaster, I haven't had a haircut since last July and the ends are a mess. I need to book a haircut soon!

  2. Pretty dress! Also like your necklace.

    I agree...comfort is my top priority.

  3. I dress for comfort too, which is why I also adore knit dresses ... but strange that I also love blazers and button-downs?
