This is a very active variation on this dress; it’s pretty short, even for me, so it can be a bit restrictive in terms of movement when worn alone. However, leggings make it so much more versatile, and both items are very comfy, stretchy, and easy to move in – leggings are also great for preventing summer chafing without getting too hot in them! Although a dress feels a little smarter than a top with leggings, this is so simple that it’s definitely casual wear, and I’ll even wear it for more energetic activities, like walking or hiking; it’s a favourite of mine when travelling, as it’s easy to throw on for long days of sightseeing, or comfortable for long travel days. My Converse have taken a beating already; normally I get a new pair every 12-18 months, depending but these ones have a pretty sizeable rip after just 7, most likely because I wear them to work a lot. I’m hoping to hold them together with some rough needlework for the summer, and then perhaps replace them after my long, upcoming trip. I threw on some jewellery too, just for fun really, since I never wear any through the week at work, but the outfit is still simple and versatile.
