Kinda Like a Dress

January 7, 2013


Ahh, date night! We headed to Hard Rock in Ft. Lauderdale on Saturday night to see Jerry Seinfeld and I had about two seconds to throw something together. I’ve seen seeing bloggers put an oversize blouse with a skirt and the ‘drop waist’ style is in now, so I thought, hey, let’s try this while I’ll be in another city. Ha! So much to get dressed up when it’s doubtful you’ll run into other people you know, right? I know it brings out the adventurer in me. While this isn’t crazy or anything, it was a new style for me and I’m loving the result. Since the skirt has an elastic waist the blouse didn’t work partially tucked in so instead I hiked up the skirt a bit, and let the shirt hang (with the skirt at the original length, it looked blah, the dimensions were off). I adore how the ankle straps give it a sexy vibe, even though my top half is totally covered.

More of the look…


blouse: forever 21 (last seen here; similar shape, with great detailing) || lace skirt: target (2011; similar) || earrings: c/o ann taylor (similar)|| watch: c/o skagen  | bracelet: baublebar (I think, similar)  | heels: zara (love these)

    So cute - and perfect for a date night. I agree with you - love that you are mostly covered up, but there is a sexy vibe here that isn’t too “in-your-face”. Hope you guys had a fun time! :)
