Dress | Potter’s Pot
Jacket | Zara
Boots | Jeffrey Campbell
You’re probably wondering how I can stand to wear outfits like this in the scorching summer sun, and why I am not posting outfits consisting of shorts and sundresses. Personally, I find shorts extremely uncomfortable. I also love edgy clothes, so that pretty much eliminates sundresses as an option too (with the exception to some that I have blogged previously.) Since most of outings are to work, where there is AC, and during the night, I can get away with wearing all my favorite warmer pieces.
The dress mimics the trendy corset belt style that has been all over instagram. While I don’t prefer the belt trend, I love that this dress incorporates the same idea with the subtle lace-up detail to add shape to a casual T-shirt dress. I threw on one of my current obsessions: this jacket from Zara. It is pure perfection from the studs to the graffiti to the fit. These boots also seem way too warm for the current LA summer, but for a night out with a dress, they add a perfect amount of warmth. The small heel creates height and sound to add confidence while remaining comfortable. They are such a great transitional piece, as they are amazing over skinny jeans as well. To finish off the look, I left my hair in its post-braids shambles and kept my makeup very light, emphasis on the brows. I love this look and I hope you did too!
