Ivory tailored vest H&M (similar here & here) // black camisole top Topshop (similar here & here) // black jersey asymmetrical wrap skirt Zara (similar here & here) // black sandals Zara (similar here & here) BTW forget about the vest; I’ve found a magical recipé to (looking like you have) long, lean legs. You take one ounce of an asymmetrical wrap skirt that covers one of your legs all the while baring the other one all, add a drop of drape detail to prevent the stretchy jersey fabric from looking tacky, season with a summer vest if you have wide thighs like mine and serve with an elongating pair of pumps or sandals. Fair warning: it’s gonna be hard to go back to flats after this. .
White frill hem dress Need Supply (similar here & here) // kimono used as a wrap H&M (similar here) // black lace up flat sandals Kurt Geiger (similar here & here) Dresses, along with bags, are the least favorite items in my wardrobe. I don’t like the idea of wearing something someone else has already decided exactly how I should wear, so years ago I got into the habit of wrapping kimonos, cardigans or what have you around my too girly or too bland dresses to make them more personal. It’s better to be a burrito than a plate of rice. .
Off the shoulder blouse Zara (similar here & here) // white pleated maxi skirt Vintage Ralph Lauren (similar here & here) // brown sandals Zara (similar here & here) Why the hell have we waited SO long to bring back off the shoulder tops?! It’s the perfect mélange of fancy t-shirt and comfy tank top – better than both actually. Not only they level up your quotidien looks, they also perfectly and elegantly widen your shoulders to make your thighs look smaller. I like small butts and I can not lie. .
Crop top with asymmetric front Front Row Shop (similar here) // cropped wide leg trousers Front Row Shop (similar here & here) // brown wooden wedge sandals Zara (similar here & here) Those heels are my most impulse buy of all time and it wasn’t even an online sale – I saw them, loved them, bought them without even thinking if I can pair them with something (have a general problem with brown) or if they are comfortable enough. Two years later they are still one of my favorites, going well with everything and actually more comfortable than most heels. I say, always invest in chunks of wood. .
Wool poncho ASOS (similar here & here) // black camisole Topshop (similar here) // denim shorts vintage (similar here & here) // white crossover sandals Stylenanda (similar here & here) The fact that I bought something for fall (which I do actually, a lot, buy stuff according to fashion calendar not the real time calendar) doesn’t mean that I have to wait until it’s time to wear it. And Montreal is supporting my shopaholic tendencies with its breeze that comes out of nowhere every now and then, validating the poncho use in summer. .
