I got this Free People dress as a Christmas gift and it instantly became one of my favorites. To start with it is a gorgeous shade of plum which remains versatile for most seasons. I also love the lace pattern, it makes the dress feel very feminine. The dress has an uneven hem line which invokes a more bohemian feel. My style tends to lean more to the preppy side of things, but I like dipping my toes into boho styles. This dress offers an easy way to do this, because it still remains very girlie and polished, yet it has very slight hints at hipster styles. One thing for certain is that I adore this dress and will continue to wear it until we reach summer.
Oxblood was one of my favorite trends this winter. I loved this skirt and have featured it in past blog posts. For a day out in Chicago, I bundled up in layers and wore this skirt with a chambray shirt. I love combining chambray with skirts and more feminine pieces. For me it keeps the menswear trend more girlie and polished. What were some of your favorite winter trends?
With the end of winter approaching, I have been trying to wear my favorite pieces from the season as often as possible. I loved this skirt’s plaid pattern. I also love the pleating it has and the flared bottom. It is definitely a piece that I will miss once spring comes, until then I’ll be wearing it as often as possible!
Like any holiday, I love St. Pat’s. I know it is not a major event, but I can’t keep myself from decorating my apartment and getting excited to wear green. Even though it has been super commercialized in America, it makes me feel more connected with my Irish heritage. I think this green skirt is the perfect way to wear the color this Sunday. Green is not used super often in wardrobes, and using it in a skirt is even more unexpected. Also, what better way to celebrate the holiday than by wearing Pantone’s color of the year, emerald!
