Baseballneck & Chain

Wednesday, July 30

I'll get this out of the way right off the bat (and keep these baseball puns hitting): the title is a play on Turtleneck & Chain, "the second studio album of the American comedy troupe The Lonely Island."

Anyway.

| necklace: H&M | dress: ASOS | flats: Old Navy |

Here's my third and final dress from my ASOS giveaway win (here's the first and second), and I think it's also my favorite! Ultimately, I chose simple knit dresses across the board. This one has a bit of flair to it, with the baseball tee look on top. I just can't wait to wear it again! It's comfy, simple, and didn't require much of anything to be a cute outfit.

Also, to answer any questions about ASOS sizing: it is a bit tricky (that's why I had to exchange and went through the hassle in the first place.) I am wearing a 4 Petite in all my dresses, and I would definitely recommend shopping their tall/petite collections if you are able to. 4 Petite seems to be my magic fit, but I found a normal 4 to be waaayyy too big. Generally, I do wear smaller than a 4 in dresses, so I would say the sizes run small. But I don't think the sizing is uniform. Which makes it an especially tricky online order.

I would say it was worth the hassle though, because I do adore each of the dresses I ended up with. Plus, they were free, so how can I complain at all right?

Like I said, all I needed was a simple necklace and flats to pull this look together! Next time I'm envisioning some tennis shoes and maybe a bigger statement necklace, but really, I think there are a lot of options! How would you style this dress?

This week I've been: 
- frantically making plans for family arriving in town in a week (yeee! also yikes I have stuff to do!)
- planning a ping-pong doubles tournament at work on Friday
- spending the evenings with different (and some, neglected) friends
- as of this afternoon, house-sitting til Saturday!
- finishing The Bachelorette (don't get me started, but if you want to talk, we can!) (oh, and if these pictures look a bit rushed, dark, and haphazard to you, it's because Hunter took them on a commercial break leaving two new couple-ish friends sitting inside. The things I do. For this blog.) 

Anything interesting happening in your week? Anything frantic? Send 'em both my way, I think I can relate <3

I love simple knit dresses in the summer--so much better looking than Nike shorts and a t-shirt but just as comfy (although to be honest, the Nike shorts win just as often...)

I have a friend who was at the Bachelorette finale and Instagrammed a picture last night with Chris Harrison. Wanted to strangle her a little bit. Just a little.

Love, Gigi

I love this look. It is simple and understated and yet very pulled together. Fabulous.

I read your post title and immediately thought of that song by Lonely Island! "...sippin on a light beer." lol! Baseball tees are awesome, but I don't think I've seen one in dress form! I love the girly edge to it :)

That dress looks insanely comfy! I like the baseball tee feel to it. I think you should pair it with tennies and a fun scarf for your next outfit :)

I lost interest in the Bachelorette a few years ago but my mom got me back into Big Brother this summer. Oh dear... hehe

Jacqueline Stewart said...

ohh, this is a kinda cool dress! I'm considering designing a baseball tee for my Vietnamese New Year collection but I never thought about making it a dress! Hmmm...ideas are brewing! And ping pong!? That's awesome! :D

Your third free dress looks adoooooorable on you Priya! I totally agree that it is one of those pieces that doesn't really need much to make a cute outfit. I think like you said I would go with some cute sneakers or tennis shoes next time ;)

Priya said...

I want to see me wear it for Summer too, haha. It might be too hot, also I'm pretty sure I packed it up for Winter so that would be an investment just to find it.

Good ideas- I have white Jack Purcells // wedges I could wear it with. Thanks Nicole!

Priya said...

I find myself in running clothes all. the. time! But to be fair, it's mostly from before/after I workout.

You're joking!!!!!! You need to share that on your blog!

Priya said...

Oh thank GOODNESS somebody got it :D

thanks so much Rachel!

Priya said...

Well Tennies it is! I totally contemplated that on my first go as well. I have friends at work that watch Big Brother and I've seen it a few times, that is wild.

Priya said...

Baseball everything is so. IN. Do it!!

Priya said...

Thank you Gigi! You're the sweetest.

Love me a baseball tee & a dress is even better! I would totally style it with some cute tennies and a shirt tied around the waist!
