Ole Reliable

5.16.2012


{ F21 skirt, dress (worn underneath) & black ring | UO shoes | vintage belt & gold ring | gifted bracelets }

I wore this outfit this past weekend to a local Mexican restaurant in order to celebrate my aunt's birthday! My hometown serves the best Mexican food ever (I've never been to Mexico, so I can't compare), so when I'm home from college I make sure to get my fill which usually involves putting myself into multiple food comas. Hey, no regrets!

I'm workin' the "wear a dress underneath" effect with this outfit. These days, I use dresses way more as tops and skirts rather than show the entire thing. Weird, right? That's why they are probably the most reliable pieces in my closet, because they increase the number of my potential looks tenfold!

I was recently featured on Smashion.com discussing shopping tips & my current favorite trends!

  6. I have a similar skirt but I'm afraid to wear it cause of the length. Your wear it so well though and I got some idea...like a belt and pretty shoes.

  11. And this would be why I love dresses. Because they work three ways, as a dress, skirt, or top! Haha, love how you used it as a top, the floral lacy material is just gorgeous <3

  13. I'm always thrilled when you do this. I don' have many dresses that can be layered like that, but it's one of my favorite tricks. (: Do you still confuse people when they ask about your "nice blouse" or "cute skirt" and you tell them it's a dress?
