I've been wearing cotton/linen midi dresses all summer (well no long-sleeves or belts) as it's easy to throw on and run after kids. But i still feel like theyre my house clothes for lack of better term, like the house-coats my grandma's wore, I usually don't go anywhere in them - not that anyone goes anywhere anymore. Granted mine are all fast fashion versions and not thousands of pounds.
Either way, the midi dress which I hated when it came back into fashion, is now my staple. I get it now. Even ugly patterns I'm like, "hmm that looks so comfy"
