There is nothing better than a dress with pockets – nothing! Obviously, it’s a great place to stick your phone, tissues, lip gloss, etc. But it also gives me something to do with my hands…so I’m not just standing around awkwardly, haha. (Especially if it’s a slightly more fitted dress than I’m used to.)

I will purchase a dress (or skirt) for the sole purpose of its pockets sometimes. That was one of the main driving factors behind the purchase of this dress. This dress is actually strapless, and I avoid strapless dresses at all costs (strapless bras – no thank you!). However, I liked the fabric, and most importantly, it has pockets! This dress was another one I bought eons ago and thought I had donated, only to find it safely hanging in a closet at my mom’s house last weekend. I have one more dress to show off from that discovery – stay tuned!

These pumps have been around for a long time, as well! You just can’t go wrong with a simple pair of black pumps. They are super comfy and go with a ton of outfits. And they survived being a chew toy for Bosco when he was a baby. These shoes are the only thing Bosco’s little teeth had gotten a hold of when he was a puppy. Fortunately, you can’t really see the little bite marks on them (unless you look really closely). So, I still wear them!

The picture below is of the little culprit from yesterday, he had his little hoodie on to help me shovel snow. Haha. And yes, we are still shoveling snow here in Wisconsin. Will it ever end?!?

    Of course I love pockets..who doesn’t?!?

    I’m working on sewing a new dress, and it has pockets. It was actually my first time ever sewing pockets, and it was so easy! Now I will add them to every dress and skirt I sew, lol.

    I love how elegant your dress looks, yet you look so at ease because of the pockets. Win-win!

    Pockets are the best!! I couldn’t agree more!! I love a dress with pockets even if they are rare, and somehow also end up being disappointed whenever a dress does not have pockets.
    This outfit is great, it looks very festive and elegant.
    Much love,

    POCKETS!!!! You don’t know how much you miss them until you don’t have them! And you don’t know how much you miss large, man-sized pockets until you have a pocket that can barely fit a tube of chap-stick! I guess I understand the aesthetic need for tiny (or no) pockets in women’s clothes when they’re more form-fitting. And I do now have a purse to carry things in. But I really miss the utility of man pockets…lol…

      Haha! Exactly! Purses are the replacement for man pockets I suppose…but it is nice to be able to have a place for your phone and wallet without having to carry a purse. I can see how you miss larger pockets, for sure! Haha.
