I'm finding it harder and harder to say goodbye to my dresses and skirts these days. They're what I feel most comfortable in (yes, I'd choose wearing a skirt over wearing jeans any day...don't judge me). It's not like I have the nicest of legs to show off, either. I have the knobbiest of knees, bruise way too easily for my own good, and clearly don't mind about my pricklies as much as I should (TMI?). But have me easily slip a dress on, throw a pair of spanx underneath, add a cardigan or outerwear, and I'll be one relaxed girl. So yes, expect me to be making the most of my skirts and dresses before the weather prohibits from doing so and get used to seeing those knobby knees of mine in the next few weeks.
I got this classy dress a while ago on one of my casual visits to Marshalls. That store has a way of reeling you in and making you buy more than you came for. But of course, I'm not complaining because anything I get from there is totally a bargain and worth it. The dress is a bodycon fit but not overly tight and I love the subtle texture and leg slits at the bottom. I kept it simple with a favorite slouchy cardigan of mine since it had multi-tones of gray. The rest of the look was minimal with layered necklaces from Aldo and my black bowler hat. A very casual and comfy look with a boho edge.
Stay warm and dry New York!
Style tip: With such a simple dress, you don't want to take away from its classy details so pair with a simple neutral-toned outerwear and subtle accessories
