It’s always funny to me how long clothes with their tags still on sit in my closet before I even get around to wearing them. Here’s a dress I bought back in January and am just now getting around to wearing! Keep reading to check out more photos of this outfit and some shopping ideas inspired by this look!
Before I start, here’s what I’m wearing:
- White Button-up Shirt (H&M)
- Layered Blue and White Striped Dress (ASOS)
- Woven Wedge Sandals (Mossimo)
- Oversized Dual Tone Watch (Michael Kors)
When I saw this dress online during one of my late night ‘browsing’, I showed it to Brendan and when he said ‘that looks cute’, I immediately grabbed my wallet, and clicked ‘order’!
Thankfully UK sizes fit me better than US sizes! When my dress arrived it was PERFECT! Perfect fit, length and I couldn’t be more excited about the fullness of the layering. Its heavy enough for cooler spring and fall weather but floaty enough for warmer days.
Originally I wanted to pair this outfit with my fringe ankle boots or even my brown cowboy boots but when I stepped outside, I immediately changed into something a little more appropriate for the weather. These woven wedged sandals don’t get enough love from me, not because they’re not comfortable (they’re surprisingly comfortable for the height) or because they’re difficult to walk in (wedges are a breeze to parade around town in) but for the sad reason that they have been hiding in the back section of my shoe shelf. I bought them last year for my trip to the Cayman Islands and after unpacking I never wore them after. No worries though, this summer they’ll definitely be seeing more sun!
To complete this look, I threw on a white button up, cuffed and tied in the center since layering a jacket in this weather would be silly. Its light enough that I can wear it during the warmer days but keeps me covered up well enough to wear anywhere. Plus I think it pulls the look together just right.
