Do you have a “365-day dress” in your closet? By that, I mean a dress so versatile that you can literally wear it 365 days a year. It’s so rare to find one, but when you do – it’s life changing! Just think – you’ll never need to pack it away or store it!

I love styles that are season-less (the “workhorse” pieces in my closet). Today’s charade is all about my recent 365-day dress find. First, I am in love with the emerald green color (feels so regal and elegant with the lace)! I also love that I can wear it with bare legs and heels during warmer months, and, when the weather gets cooler, I’ll simply pair it with black opaque tights, a cropped blazer and black pumps.

The dress is work appropriate and also sophisticated enough to wear to an event. It’s truly a 9 AM – 9 PM outfit, and I LOVE when I come across finds like these. Best of all, the price is reasonable (especially since I’ll be wearing it a lot). I found the fit of the dress to be true to size, but if you have any issues with your order – Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns.

What are your 365-day dresses? What criteria do you look for when shopping for one?

    I never need an excuse to wear lace, but this dress makes it perfect for fall/winter! So, so cute.
