Recently, I can’t live without dresses with pockets. I notice a HUGE advantage of having pockets over no pockets – can we agree on that?! They’re more efficient than the pockets of skinny jeans and I love putting my phone + lip balm + employee card + credit card in my pocket and going out for lunch. (Denim jackets with inner and exterior pockets are good too. Wearing that with a dress WITH pockets = best.)
(Btw this post will be short and sweet. These days I’ve been pretty mentally tired, hence the longer breaks between posts. I don’t want to write a boring post for the sake of writing a post!)
Recently, my go to outfit has been a dress with some kind of sneakers. I am currently wearing the Tobi At Ease Sweatshirt Shift Dress* which is not only comfy AND it has pockets. This dress I’d wear to work or do my day to day activities in. It has ample room to put all my essentials into the pockets! Sometimes I want to do my makeup in the washroom at work, but I don’t want to carry a makeup bag. On the days where I’m blessed with bountiful of pockets; I stick my eyeliner/compact/concealer/lipstick/lip scrub in my pockets and discreetly walk to the washroom. The inner pocket of my denim jacket (and the pockets of this sweatshirt dress) can also fit a Schick Intuition razor if you need to do some last minute shaving #beentheredonethat.
I was with my friend shopping for dresses to wear to a wedding; and I was heavily pushing for a dress with pockets. (Ok fine- a bit controversial – the dress I ended up purchasing for a wedding did NOT have pockets; but I wanted a specific colour and fit.) Another style of dresses I really like are shirt dresses; since I don’t wear dress shirts to work this is the more fun option. AND most shirt dresses have pocket;s such as Grey Jason Wu Short Sleeve Shirtdress or the Rag & Bone Mason Shirtdress.
Not only do dresses with pockets has my heart; but so do lifestyle type of Nike shoes. I bought a pair of Nike Huarache sneakers and they’re one of my no brainer shoes. I barely wore flats all summer and I may be purging them soon to clean up a bit! My favourite part about the Huarache’s are the elastic type of hold around my ankle so I can put on my shoes without actually tying my laces! Paying for laziness is something I do way too much. 🙁
