I wore this outfit this past Friday. I wanted something casual that could work for day or night.
About This Outfit:
[The Outfit]: I am wearing a cropped denim top from Armani Exchange. This is actually a bathing suit top, but I have always worn it as a regular top. I have had this for a couple years now and thought about bringing this to Beacon’s Closet but very thankful I have held onto this piece as I have found new ways to incorporate it into my wardrobe.
The taupe dress is from Guess. I love the fit of their clothing and know that I can always rely on Guess clothing to fit my body like a glove.
The shoes are Charles David. They are gold with bow styling detail at front and a cork heel. Yes, I wear these all the time, especially in the summer!
I’m wearing my gold “Meli” nameplate necklace along with stacked bracelets and a gold studded ring.
[Where to wear this outfit]: As I mentioned, I’d wear this day or night. Obviously, not something I’d wear during the day making a trip to the supermarket, but for work, absolutely (cause I can)!
- I always say, “if it’s nice, buy it twice.” I love this taupe dress so much that I also own it in black! I can’t even remember which one I bought first, but I definitely made another trip to buy it in another color. I have had these dresses for at least two years now and still rock them like I bought them yesterday. They are so simple in style that they never go out of style. Another good reason why it was a good investment to buy the same dress in various colors.
- The denim vest is also nothing new but is so versatile that it can be styled very easily. I was getting tired of wearing the vest with a top that I decided, why not layer this over a dress?
- When wearing solid, neutral colors or anything lacking brightness, I will try to find other ways to add brightness to the final look. In this styling scenario, I chose to do this by wearing bright, red lips. Other options could have been wearing bright shoes, accessories, or rocking a bright handbag.
I don’t wear red lipstick as much as a I should but this is not to say I’m opposed to it. I just like to save it for rare occasions or for times I use it to accessorize a look.
[Thanks for viewing! Thoughts?]
