I found this Ulla Johnson dress in Santa Barbara, on sale and then marked down again. She is one of my favorite designers but her stuff is crazy expensive. It feels so Little House on the Prairie to me–and reminds me of dresses I used to wear as a little girl. My mom used to shop the Gunny Sax outlet to find us awesome dresses. The sleeves on this dress are actually puffy–but I rolled them up to tone down the ‘prairie’ look just a little.

It’s so comfortable and easy to wear. I love a good dress–even if it’s just an ordinary day.

This is my fave wallet from the new collection. It doubles as a clutch too.

And the North Star necklace is a favorite too! The 24″ chain length was perfect with this neckline.

On one side each charm is an initial, the opposite side is the braille initial–set with a stone to represent your ‘North Star’.

Do you ever wear dresses on an average day? Or do you save them for special occasions?
