Nothing beats jersey. 

Love lounging around in this dress…but if I’m going to wear it out, this thing clearly needs a little cinching. Threw on my Coach-purse-turned-fanny-pack as a finishing touch…my new favorite “belt” for sure.

Call me lazy, but let’s get real…it’s a million times more practical than a handbag.

    LOVE your camel dress, it’s so effortlessly practical.
    Can wear it with anything!
    What a smart idea to wear your sling purse as a waist pouch, so so much better than any other bumbags!

    Love the purse fanny pack look! What a clever way to dress up the outfit. Nice shoes too!!!

    The light in this post is absolutely amazing. I love how it turns this already awesome (and yet deceptively simple) outfit into a dream look.

  17. Victoria 30. Sep, 2011 at 10:02 am #

    What a great outfit post! The dress and shorts are not only fashionably effortless, but you look so comfortable in it as well! I loev how you styled the coach purse into a “fanny pack-esque” belt. I have a coin purse that has a loop to attach to your belt, and it reminds me of that. So cute, so functional–why not? Have a good weekend!

    Thanks!! That coin purse sounds very cute. Love the idea. :)

    Hope you have a great weekend as well! x

    loving that waist bag, the whole idea of having something like that around your waist is really appealing, can see countless styling options with this already

    This is seriously brilliant! The most fabulous of fanny packs I’ve spied to date! Definitely gotta dig out the old coaches and give this baby a try! Genius! Love it!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

    I love the shadows in these pictures. That dress looks super comfortable, but doesn’t look too casual or anything. In fact, it’s a really chic look! I especially love those shoes.
