Dress Over Jeans: Homeless or Hip?

My neighbor recently visited Seattle and we were chatting at the pool yesterday about how much we love the city (I'm headed there the end of this month in fact - can't wait!). She said she saw a lot of little girls with dresses and jeans and that it seemed to be a trend there and that women were doing it too.

I think this is something I would like - a little funky, a little hippie - and could wear to work on Fridays, but not sure this part of the South is ready for it. And if you didn't do it right, you could certainly be confused for a homeless person.

For sure if I had a little girl I would totally dress her in this trend. What do you think? Confusing or cute? Homeless or hip? Childish or cool?

  5. Guess I am a little out of style.... I find the whole look a little weird. Think I will stick with jeans and tops.

  6. I think as long as it's a more fitted look it can be totally cute!

  7. Personally, it's a no for me. I just don't care for that look. The girl in the two photos who's a non-celebrity (is she the one who has that clothing blog?) looks pretty cute but then it looks more like a long shirt and not a dress.

    I think JLH looks like an idiot with that outfit on. The jeans look cute, the dress loos cute but together, not cute. JMO of course.

  8. Just found your blog and speaking as a "Bama girl",I agree everyone should have a southern accent:)

    I dress my twins in jeans and dresses sometimes and think it's adorable but I don't see myself in them anytime soon.

  9. I did it in college quite often - usually with a cute, sleeveless LBD that had gotten too short with jeans... it was perfect for tailgating as the weather cooled off!

  12. Completely agree that it has to be the right dress. Otherwise it's a bust. But with the right dress...I think it's fun!

  13. I bought a dress to wear over black pants, but DH says it needs to be hemmed because it's too long to wear as is. Now if I ever get to hemming it, I'm gonna try it!

  14. I think Jennifer Love Hewitt's outfit is adorable! I say try it!!

  15. I think it is cute if done with the right dress and right shoes....I agree that Gwen's dress choice is less than chic and the shoes are not a great look for the completion of the ensemble!
    A little girl in this outfit would be darling!

  16. I definitely am digging the dress over the jeans. I've only pulled it off once *and got looked at funny* but I personally think it's super adorable!

  17. I think the look is so cute, but I don't think I could pull this off!

  18. It has to be done right. A cute shirt dress and dark bootcut slimming jeans. I like this look. But, it is FAR to hot to do this until fall.

  19. This was popular 10 years ago in San Fran. Since I did it then, I think I will skip it this time around.

  20. I am absolutely enamored and obsessed with this look (which is how I stumbled upon this blog.)

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
