When It Rains, It Pours: Part II

And here is the other denim dress (if you’re new here, see yesterday’s post). They’re actually both Tencel chambray, which is a lovely light super soft “denim” fabric.

Interestingly, after *wearing* them both for the photo shoot, I thought this dress was the clear winner. It has a little more modest neckline, flows away from my body a little more, just seems more like a “Bettye dress.” However, when I got home and looked through the pictures, I think the other one LOOKS better…and this one actually reads as a little “nightgownish.” Which is not *necessarily* a bad thing – who doesn’t want to feel like they’ve got their jammies on all day!?

I could keep both dresses, I think they’re different enough. Yesterday’s dress skews a little more modern, and would be accessorized accordingly. And this one is a little more “pretty/sweet,” and would accessorized very differently than the other one.

So what do you all think? Keep one? Keep both? Keep neither? Does the lighter one look like a nightgown to you guys, too?

I did finally get to wear my colorful earrings with the light dress.

Old Navy Dress:


  • SO comfortable
  • loose easy fit
  • better neckline
  • more lightweight, appropriate for summer


  • Looks like a nightgown!

  1. I understand you were not thrilled with yesterday’s dress having the lower neck line and space under your arms. Would a light cami work under yesterday’s dress to make it more comfortable for you?


    1. This morning I was fully prepared to send back the lighter one, the nightgown one. I really wouldn’t feel comfortable at work in it, I don’t think. But now I’m thinking maybe it’s a good summer alternative to leggings and tee, just to throw on when running errands on the weekend. If strangers at the market think I’m shopping in my nightgown, what do I care??


  2. I’m behind on reading so just read both posts back to back. KEEP THEM BOTH! They’re different enough and I love both on you. As has already been said, they’re both nice for different reasons.

    1. I’m still on the fence, ha. Which means I’m keeping it. I KNOW it looks like a nightgown, I KNOW I will probably not be able to wear it to work, but I still love it and it feels good. so there 🙂
