every once in a while it’s fun to exchange my blue jeans for a dress especially if lunch is involved. there’s something feminine and flirty about wearing a dress. whenever i have one on, i can’t help but think ‘i enjoy being a girl!’ although, like most items in my closet, i keep the overall look streamlined.
today’s ootd features subtle details like a fringed hemline and windowpane print. bouclé (the fabric found in my dress and blazer) was popularized years ago by the infamous coco chanel. this is a fabric that lends itself to being dressed up or down or anything in between. its soft texture is what adds a feminine touch to my outfit without the need for a ruffle or bow. i’ve added a structured bouclé jacket to bring some spit and polish to the look. accessories are kept to a minimum today as the dress is the main attraction. but i couldn’t resist wearing a pair of red pumps for a little extra pizazz.
there you have it ladies, a perfect outfit for ladies who lunch. happy hump day!
