that stripe dress

Another T-shirt dress + leather jacket combo. It's one of my favorite combos for a lazy day. My favorite thing about it and the reason why I tend to go back to it time and time again is that it's flattering on all body types and is one of those outfits that work for winter or summer. I cut the hem off this basic stripe t-shirt dress to shorten it. But I'm also hoping after a few wears and washes that the hem will fray. I think it'll give it a much cooler worn in look.

Whoa it's been a hot minute since I last wore a maxi dress. The truth is, being vertically challenged makes it hard to find maxis that don't drag a mile long. Although I can take it to the tailor to hem it, it's quite a hassle so I just avoid maxis all together. But this one was so pretty I couldn't resist. I think this could be the start of a beautiful love affair with maxis! Don't get me wrong, I still think it is a hassle tailoring it, but it's a hassle that I will endure. Because the fun of twirling around all day while getting weird stares makes it all worth it.

Giving off military vibes in this vest today. Even added the dog tag necklace for extra effect. I've always loved the sleekness of an all black ensemble. It is a blank canvas to throw on a special piece for a pop of color. In this case the olive vest is the main attraction. I love the fit of it. Over-sized, yet tailored, the perfect layering piece if you ask me.
