Allow myself to get into my part time role as a blogger and showcase a quick outfit post for you.
I actually wear this outfit out (sometimes with different tops or a black sleeveless trench) extremely often to the office. The white vest is a great addition to make your outfit appropriate and feel ~high fashion~ for any occasion— it’s also an awesome replacement for the work blazer. To be quite frank with you.. I get showered with compliments all around for doing this maxi and long vest combo from coworkers, friends, and even strangers. Not so much from the family since they believe I should be wearing short and fitted items to show my “feminine” petite body. But surprise surprise, if you know my wardrobe, you’ll know my closet contains a lot of oversize and pieces that drape on my body instead. (There’s a huge playing factor as to why I dislike fitted articles of clothing because when it’s worn, it rubs against my body and makes me irritated..and sort of.. itchy? Probably because of the irritation) Comfort has to be one of the most important things to consider when owning a piece of clothing. As for being petite… Don’t be afraid to do a maxi and a long vest when you’re under 5’4. Because it’s all about understanding and rockin’ those proportions, as well as pairing the look with a pair of nude ankle straps for the illusion of extra height. 😏
With the nightie slip gown trend going strong— it’s hard to avoid falling in love with the flowy, satin fabrics that drape on your body and making it office-appropriate and fashionably polished. That’s why a satin maxi works out so well as opposed to a fitted, satin skirt (starting to sound like I’m ready to run into a club with a matching black choker.) Let’s just say that maxi skirt and long vests go together real well.
Well, well, well, look what we have here. Little o’ me actually making it out in public in blue jeans. How casual. What’s the twist? I also made it out alive without any penalties from HR wearing this crop top to work with the jeans as well.
Because honestly… I wore a white blazer. A nice touch of ‘I’m actually super professional’ to my look. Agree? It’s not an accident I wore more white to make the look more elevated and suitable for the day time. I swear, I don’t normally or genuinely enjoy wearing jeans because I find them too casual for me. So… I’m finding more way to put my blue jeans to use. Especially these mom jeans and wide leg jeans I just recently purchased.
What do you like to wear with your blue jeans, m’dear?
When the season gives you hot days…what do you do? Well, I like to slip into something easy, chic and visibly adorable. Or what I like to call a little white dress. I can’t even count how many little white dresses I own up to date..at least 7 of them. For those who have opened up the right half of my closet and are blinded by the number of white pieces I own– at least half are dresses and a quarter are dress shirts and tops.
Not that I have a problem against wearing shorts and tanks, but I feel that I personally can only run out in the pair if I’m actually going for a run. That being said, it takes longer for me to find two pieces that go together as oppose to slipping into one piece. Which is why owning a few white dresses for me works for me. Perfect for those work days at the office, summer date or brunch with your ladies and gents.
I’ve compiled a list below to my little white dress picks! The majority are also on sale.
What’s your go-to piece for the summer? Let me know!
I have finally made time to post an article celebrating my big 2-4.
Because why wouldn’t I want to take this moment to dress up and be captured parading around my neighbourhood looking awesome? PS. Thanks Therese!
God, does it feel like scary that I’m that much closer to hitting a quarter century. But all in all– I’m blessed to be where I am, to be surrounded with the people I’m with and with the point where I am in life. I think it’s a great time to say…hello to another good year! There’s not a split second of a minute where I don’t think about another good thing to do. I’m going to enjoy being 24 while I’m at it. Say hello to more years of hard work and good memories to be made! x
