There’s something about very feminine dressing that makes me feel really confident. I’m so much more comfortable in dresses than in pants; in bright, pastel colors than in blacks and greys; and in floral prints than in stripes. This outfit combines a little of all of that, and then some.
I wore this outfit to work and walking around New York, and felt simply amazing. I love how personal style can make you feel invincible sometimes. One of the small, girly details I love about this outfit are the lace-rimmed socks. They remind me of the socks I used to wear when I was a little kid, but updated for a modern wardrobe. I have them in five colors, and they’ll definitely pop up in my outfits again and again! I’m really into the trendy-socks trend, but prefer they be paired with boots than with heels. Just my personal preference.
And just in case the outfit needed a little more girliness, this dress features the cutest little bow ties at the sleeves. Hope you like this look!
Last week was my 26th birthday. Right now, with the changing of seasons, I’m getting a little wistful about the past year, and I’m evaluating my life and my goals, and looking forward to everything that a new year will bring for me. 25 was awesome, and I’m hoping 26 is too!
