My New Go-To Dress

Kayce Hughes, the super-talented designer of Pears + Bears, became a Pure Style Home sponsor a couple of months ago.  I was immediately smitten with her company and her iconic designs, and fell head over heels for her denim tunic dress.  I love Kayce's style and I'm crazy about her chidlren's lines too.  {Oh my goodness so adorable!! Best gifts ever!!}


I'm always on the look-out for "Go-To" clothes:  The pieces in our wardrobes that always work, that we're just guaranteed to feel good in.   Kayce's dress looked like one of those magic pieces to me and now that I have one, I can honestly tell you that it is!! 


Kayce & I swapped clothes for ads and I would so not do this if I weren't in love with her stuff.    ("Modeling" is not easy as I learned when taking these pics with a dying camera battery but VERY worth my new beautiful go-to dress!!  Thank you Kayce!!  I love it!!!) 

So, what are your favorite go-to pieces?  I always think how I would love to have a fairly modestly-stuffed closet full of only go-to pieces... 


xoxo, Lauren

ps-  Stacy just asked a good question in the comments:  It looks longer on me than it is on Kayce in her photo on the website.  I'm 5'8 and it hits me just above the knee.  I love it at both lengths and I am guessing the one Kayce is wearing is hemmed shorter, but as soon as I hear back from her, I'll let you know.   (ok eeek-  now I need 2!!  one long and one short!! hahah)

Wow, I remember seeing her in a magazine and loving everything about her - her house, her kids, her clothes. How exciting to read about her here and even more excited to see you modeling :0) You look terrific, your dress is much longer than the one in her photo. Are you short or is she tall or does it come in different lengths?

BTW, clothes for ad space sounds like a sweet deal to me - smart thinking

Funny....after I read your comments I went right to her site and she does indeed have lovely stuff. Love the length of your dress. I wish she did maternity at the moment!

Lauren, isn't that the dress you were wearing in the photo you posted of Justin's baptism? I remember seeing it then and thinking, 'goodness, I love that dress.'

Great dress! I find that I have more go-to dresses and clothes in the summer, just relaxed and fun.

You look stunning in that dress!! I would love to have more go-to clothes but I think dresses are the easiest to wear, I just need more as well!

Gorgeous dress, of course you're beyond beautiful and really should model.

Love Kayce and her whole clothing line! So chic!!!

Are you sure you don't want to move to Nashville and become a model? We have orange doors..well we might not but we could.

I loved this dress the minute I saw it (on your FB?) and keep meaning to email you to ask where you got it.

Great dress! Isn't it wonderful when you find a piece that is simple to wear and makes you feel good?

I love the dress! Very pretty...a bit shorter sleeves and it would work in this hot Texas summer!!!

I think you need to take a weekly photo for a weekly "go-to" post in front of your lovely orange door!
You look "pure style" - at home and at ease....

For summer I love shifts, skirts and bare legs!

right now I am favoring a fitted skirt with one of this season's Ann Taylor loft embellished tees. I love the romantic flower look. Or I will wear a swingy longer full skirt with a deep v necked plain black shell with ballet flats.
