I have a hard time pulling off the very classy ladylike look… at least I think I do. I love getting dressed up, like, so much… but I feel like if there isn’t some element of ‘edge’ to my outfit I just look off. When I received this full floral midi skirt from Lulu’s I fell in love, but struggled with how to style it because I think I was trying a little too hard to be too ladylike. Once I loosened up and picked things out of my closet that were way more me I felt much better!
SOUTH MOON UNDER CROP TOP || VICTORIA’S SECRET BRALETTE || LULU’S FLORAL MIDI SKIRT C/O (there’s only ONE left in stock guys!!) || CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN SHOES || DANIRISI BAG C/O || FOREVER21 EARRINGS || MICHELLE WATCH || DAVID YURMAN BRACELET || ROMAN BRIDE BRACELET C/O
So, let’s talk about wearing trendy pieces but keeping your own sense of style while doing so. With a full skirt like this I would normally think it has to be paired with something super elegant, like a lacy long sleeve, but it all felt weird to me. I decided to dress more how I normally would; threw on a strappy bralette and opted for a bold skull bag instead of a dainty clutch. Even just these small personal touches helped me feel way more comfortable in my own skin.
Can you tell we were goofing off much? haha! This is me trying to act all ladylike and fabulous! Zero idea what I’m doing. I’m taking a poll on this post: There is a new wedding guest trend and I’m not entirely decided how I feel about it. A more casual style like crop tops and jumpsuits are being worn to more and more weddings lately. This, for instance, is an outfit that could be worn to a wedding this summer.. but would you? Part of me is all old school and totally against it, but another part of me is like.. get with the times Rachel! It’s totally acceptable. But I mean, what’s next? Wearing white to a wedding? GASP! I think I’m on board with it, but it has to be the right setting and the right outfit. I wouldn’t necessarily wear this crop top to a wedding because it’s a little too casual, even though the skirt is fancy, but I might wear a more structured or lace little number. A jumpsuit as well, a more casual wedding setting could definitely call for one of those too, or a sleek tuxedo style for a more fancy event. So what are your thoughts?
