It’s funny because I didn’t use to be the kind of gal that valued versatility with items in my wardrobe. In fact, I was a more is more kind of person, but I constantly found frustration in my wardrobe because I would buy things just because they were cute with no plan on how to wear them.
Do you relate to this?
I went from that extreme to another with a capsule wardrobe were I clung tightly to versatile “wear with everything pieces” but nothing statement or what I would call exciting, and now I can honestly say I’ve made a home right in the middle of the two.
Now I have many items that are versatile like this blazer, but also allow the fun and experimental things into my life just with better direction than before.
It’s an amazing place to be in and I’m so excited to explore it more, but for now, lets getting back to this dress shall we?
For this specific look, I went for more of a boss babe type of feel and enjoyed experimenting with it but if I’m being completely honest with myself, it doesn’t really feel like me.
I feel so refreshed saying that because all of us, even the ones that “have it all together” sometimes put outfits together that end up not being what they were going for, or loving. Especially when your style is changing (and it’s ever-evolving), can I get an amen?
But it is a process both in successful outfits and not so successful outfits that we continue to grow in learning what we love, and I want to include you all in my behind the scenes as well.
So for this look, I’m taking a moment to think about how I could style this differently to make it feel more like me. Maybe with a belt and hat, and some shoes that are a little less serious. Stay tuned on a retake of this outfit, but for now, if boss babe is you’re thing, here is the outfit formula.
Oversized hoop + Blazer Dress + Boots + Crossbody

I’m going to be talking a lot more about the second question coming up in the future, but for now, I hope you stay tuned for the vest look dropping your way next week, and that you share all your thoughts with me!
so much love,
