Friday Frocks: Sweater Weather

fall sweater dressBeing someone who typically favors skin grazing frocks and tops only slightly larger than sportsbras, it may come as quite a surprise that one of my favorite parts of cooler weather has absolutely nothing to do with pumpkin spice anything and a whole lot to do with slipping into a cozy, cuddly, oftentimes oversized sweater dress.

This is not the first time I’ve dedicated a Friday Frocks to sweater dressing and I can promise you, as it’s only mid-September, it won’t be the last.  Knit dresses are the perfect way to transition from chilly fall days to frosty winter evenings.  When the thermostat starts to head below 60, wear your knitwear with over the knee boots and toss on a leather jacket.  As the biting temperatures of winter arrive, layer your frock over patterned tights or a pair of complementary knit leggings (another really big trend for fall).  I may be the only one, but all I want to do is hug myself when wearing a soft cashmere sweater and fortunately, I’m quite flexible, so it’s entirely doable.  But seriously, if you see me in the street wearing a sweater dress, hugs are welcome.

Friday Frocks: Chemise-try 101

lingerie clothesline bridal showerI remember slumber parties.  I don’t remember pillow fights in my panties though.  I think that cliché is some sort of sleazy scenario concocted by pervy males, when in reality, most slumber parties I attended involved Cosmo quizzes, Dr. Pepper, and pizza.  I guess nearly nude party games do sound a bit saucier.  At our age, most of the sleepovers we now attend are a bit more exclusive- like party of two and maybe a lucky dog at the foot of the bed.  While we probably should keep playing games of truth or dare until we die, we don’t necessarily need to continue donning oversized t-shirts and Soffe shorts of platonic slumber parties of years past.  One way to ensure the fire doesn’t dwindle after hours is to dress for bed like you’re dressing for your first date.  Not literally, of course, because you wouldn’t necessarily wear something see through to dinner at Le Cirque and a bodycon dress for bed might be too binding- but maybe you’re into that.  Swap your boxers for something silky, skip the pillow fights, and get right to the pillow talk.

Friday Frocks: Don’t Play No Games
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

workout fashionYou know what can ruin a perfectly good Eggs Benedict?  Watching a girl wearing sweaty yoga pants join the table next to you post [insert latest/trendiest workout] class for mimosas and toast, gluten free, of course.  I understand the stress of squeezing in a workout pre-weekend gluttony.  Getting from point A to point B without upsetting all parties and attempting to look like you didn’t just emerge from Tulum’s sweat lodge.  The struggle is real.  Whether you’re looking to find love on the tennis court or love in the club, these sporty little dresses are perfect for slipping on post calorie torching.

Friday Frocks: Jump At the Chance

jumping jumpsuit whydidTechnically not a frocks… because, well, they’re not dresses, jumpsuits are panted versions of the maxi dress.  A jumpsuit can be both casual and comfortable as well as silky and sleek.  Whether you opt for uptown or down, just fair warning: it’s going to be a struggle in the bathroom.  Allow for extra time and be prepared for angry, full bladdered women to anxiously sigh while repeatedly interrupting your bathroom break with angry knocks as you try to free yourself from straps, belts, and other accoutrements.  That aside, jumpsuits are kind of like wearing very stylish onesie pajamas out in public without attracting public scrutiny, plus you don’t need to bother shaving.  Jump at the chance to wear one this weekend.
