Happy Thursday! Zig Zag: definition- A line or course that proceeds by sharp turns in alternating directions. Zig zag is both the pattern I am wearing, and the course of weather that has been careening violently towards the smoother path of warm spring days. Will they ever arrive? These were taken last week when we had a snippet of mild weather; it was windy but warmish. I could really feel a new season on the horizon..
I bought this dress on one of these warm days at Nordstrom. Fortunately for me, I had my photo taken the next day while we still enjoyed the mild days. I loved the pattern, the zig zag dress is timeless and the simple knit column is easy to wear. The colors are bright and season spanning. All I had to add was a black jacket and my "Rockstud" (like) pumps from last year. A simple diamond wedding band and amulet pendant was all I needed for accessories, with this colorful zig zag pattern.
I can wear this sleeveless zig zag dress for summer with any simple sandal. I can dress it up with an edgier sandal too. Valentino has a single wrap "rockstud" sandal that looks comfortable, and is far less expensive than the pump, though still pricey at $745.00. I can wear this into fall with a cardi and boots, so I am pleased with this little zig zag dress, it is so versatile and would be perfect for travel. Would I ever like to get on a plane to the tropics! It was so windy and cold today.
While this may not be my favorite of all dresses, ( Okay, it is not) it is one I will wear often, because it is so comfortable . It would look well at a beach, at a more formal dinner, or in an office, so I consider that a good buy. This zig zag print is not uber trendy, and not time stamped for this season , or year even, so I can wear it for years. Do you have a favorite "wear anywhere" dress?
