    I think you and I are on the same dress wave length ;) I bought and blogged about that dress from the Gap. I LOVE it and have gotten so many compliments on it. It’s also super comfy.

      I just posted a bunch of options today! I’m wearing a sheer white top (on the casual side), a white pencil skirt I’ve had for nearly a decade, and a white statement necklace.
