I've been having a bit of a forbidden romance with this dress here. I almost never ever buy anything full price when roaming through the mall, but when I saw this hanging all nonchalant-like in Gap I nearly did a stutter step. I know, I know, it's just a chambray smock dress. It's nothing special. But something about it just got me, you know? It was almost like that feeling you get when you pass a cute guy on the sidewalk, and he gives you this half smile and your heart sort of melts the way warm butter does on a bagel. Sighs escape and cheeks prickle pink. That's exactly what this dress did to me. But it was around $60 and there was no way I was going to let myself splurge. Especially since- I lectured myself as I forced my legs to walk out of the store- I was planning on taking two huge trips starting this winter (more on that later!) What was more important, I asked myself. A denim smock dress that would look amazing with a baseball hat, or hostel money for when I'm tired and satisfyingly dusty from playing in a new country all day?
Welp, seeing how it's now on my body, I guess the answer was a smock dress.
