It started as a simple idea on a Facebook status in April 2011.  From there it became a challenge and many ladies answered the call.

The goal is simple: wear a dress or skirt every day in May. In pursing this goal we also get the added bonuses of expanding the way we look at our wardrobe as we have to re-wear, re-accessorize, and re-work some of the same pieces to get through the entire month. We also get to have fun joining in with women all over the nation in celebrating spring in style.

1. Wear a dress for the majority of every day in May.  (It’s ok to skip weekends)
This doesn’t mean you can’t wear shorts to work out or pjs to bed. If you run out of dresses or they all need to be washed, borrow one from a friend (yay dress sharing!) or wear a skirt.

2. Mix it up!
This challenge will help you look at your wardrobe in a new light! You can wear your same old dresses in unexpected ways by mixing in scarves, jackets, sweaters, tanks, stockings, belts, jewelry and other accessories.

3. Share your looks!
Have a friend take a photo of you in your dress every day (or as many days as you can) and post it to our Facebook page or group:  Use the tag #DressaDayinMay to share about it.

4. Get others involved and spread the news.
Invite other friends who are up to the challenge to join the group and start dressing up. It doesn’t matter if the start mid-month or from day one. It’s just a fun experiment! Use the tag #DressaDayinMay to share about it.

  1. Check it out, great social work minds think alike! I didn’t think I was the only one but I am happy to find 9 sisters – I can join or add me somehow.
    I am a blog rookie. Let me know how to get us share??

    • Awesome Missy! I knew I couldn’t be the only one to have this idea. We’d love to have you post to our blog too! We’re handling all the internal communication as well as blog log in, etc. via Facebook. But, if you don’t feel comfortable adding me as a FB friend I can email you details. Just let me know. I’m on FB at

  2. I am sorry I am not skilled enough to add you over – or share blogs or follow etc. It is beyond my skill set – can you add me over to you?
    We have two weeks left and I am having a ton of fun, a gal at work joined me. Congrats on the news coverage – that is the bomb! Try to post the coverage and I will share to my friends here.

  3. Love it! I started doing this last year and am repeating it again this year. It’s gotten to the point that everyone in my office has to stop by to see what dress I’m wearing each day. So fun!
