The other day, I walked into my boyfriend’s house in my I-need-to-do-laundry work outfit. He looked at me and said, “you look like someone in the future who is trying to dress really cool but missing the mark.”
Wow. Okay. I guess I’m never wearing my (workout) leggings to work again. But maybe that’s a good thing.
I then started asking him things he likes and doesn’t like that I, and other women, wear.
Here’s what he said…
“I don’t get it, just wear jeans!”
5. Big Belts
I don’t agree with him on wedges, I’ve seen some BEAUTIFUL wedges and I’ve seen some cute rompers. But, basically the rest of this list I agree with.
I have been invited to my first wedding! I’ve been to weddings in the past, but those were all family or family friend’s weddings. For the first time, I will be attending my friend’s wedding. I’m so excited!
The wedding isn’t until June, which means it will be an early summer wedding (perfect dress weather). I probably won’t actually get a dress for the wedding until May, but I’m excited to think about the possibilities. I don’t really know guest-of-wedding-dress-etiquette, but I figure as long as I stay away from anything white or too short, I should be good.
Any excuse to buy a new dress is good for me, and I don’t get to go to events that require new dresses too often, so this will be a nice change.
A little wintry, but I still like it…
Perfect with a pair of gold peep-toe heels and a pair of statement earrings…
Guests should never wear white, I know. But this dress isn’t quite white….
Sweater weather means the beginning of one of my favorite trends; shorts, tights and boots. For the longest time, I was afraid to try to this trend, but as I liked it more and more, I figured it was time to give it a try.
My go to combination is a pair of denim shorts, black textured tights and black riding boots. I then throw on one of my casual sweaters or long sleeve shirts.
One of the best things about this trend is that you can wear a pair of denim shorts for a more casual look or a pair of tweed shorts for a dressier look. Depending on what you pair your shorts with, your outfit can be appropriate for anything from brunch to a night out to a day at the office (well, if you work in a casual environment).
The shorts and tights look doesn’t end at boots either, try it with a pair of leather oxfords or a pair of plain flats.
Pants are still worn in the summer, so why can’t shorts still be worn in the winter?
