Finally, Geometry Makes Sense (Fashion Sense)

Before I even get into the wonderfulness of this dress, let me first address the nonsense of this day, Monday. In typical Lee fashion, I woke up 5 seconds before I was supposed to be out the door and on my way to work (I gotta do better... at this rate, I will be late to my funeral for sure).  Considering the limited time I had and the cooperating weather (clearly mother nature is off her period this week), this dress was an easy pick.  I hadn't wore it since last summer and it requires no effort to wear b/c the print works the whole thing by itself. DONE. Anyways, I almost always commute to work via the Metro (DCs subway/rail line) which is about a 10 minute walk from my apartment so I often wear flats or a pair of Converse Chuck Taylors and I carry my work shoes (heels, but of course) in my work bag.  So far everything is making sense and falling into place, right? Right, until I get to work and find that I packed two mismatched shoes.  Sweet baby Jesus. How that happen is still a mystery to me b/c the picking of the shoes happened in clear daylight and these two shoes were not even slightly similar.  They were different colors, shapes and styles (I swear I gotta do better...SMH).  With that, I was stuck in a dress, with my Chuck Taylors at the work.  Ironically (or not), it turned out to be the cutest little fun little unexpected outfit (nevermind the fact that it's so ridiculous to walk around the office in Chucks all day but whatever, sh#t happens...I got my work done regardless)! It even put me in the most carefree relaxed mood and I survived Monday!! Yaayyy! :-) 

The Milk and Honeeyz of it: 'When life gives you lemons, make the bestest strongest strawberry lemonade margarita you can find and have yourself a good ole' time!!!
I not only love the geometric print (which is trending big time in the fashion world) and colors, but I also love the shape of the dress, the tie neck, the 3/4 bishop sleeves and the flirty length (it's a little on the shorter side but it's not tight or clingy so it works).  More importantly, this was another fabulous find from Forever 21 that I happened upon for $30 tops! :-)  I swear things are just looking up!! LOL. 

Oh the fun that comes with a pair of Chucks!!! ;-) 
"Don't be looking at me crazy! Yea I got on sneaks and what?"
Ok, let me take my crazy  butt back in and do some work, with Converse in tow. That was fun!
