Do you find yourself recycling old shooting locations? I surely do, and I never regret it. It would be such a pity to find a cool spot and use it only for once. Whenever I find a new location I get extremely excited and would love to get all my outfits shot in the same spot, but that would be kinda boring. Although it doesn’t hurt to reuse some of those old cool places every now and then. That’s what happened today. Remember the cute little red old car I’ve found in April? Where else could I have shot this striped dress if not near the red beast? They go together like bacon and eggs, and gosh I shouldn’t mention food when I’m starving.
Now back to the serious stuff, today I have decided to try one of the trends I’ve been staying away from: dress over pants. Why didn’t I try it yet? No idea, probably because I only own about ten dresses which I have bought over the years. Got some of them while I was in high school, so yeah, I got an excuse for being so late on this bandwagon. But to my defense, I’m taking baby steps into fixing the “problem” and started by getting some new dresses. This is one of those I mentioned in the previous post and I pretty much love it. That’s not only because it’s red, striped and midi, but also because it has fun shoulders. Besides the above mentioned, it’s also extremely flowy and easy to style. It worked like a charm with these white suit pants and I’d also love wearing it with mom jeans.
So if you’re planning on trying the trend anytime soon and would like to start with a similar dress, then I’d suggest pairing it with some skinny jeans or sleek trousers. Although, it can also be mixed with wide leg pants as long as the waist is accentuated. That can be done with a belt or corset. However, layering a loose dress over a pair of trousers would be the stress free effective option which would take you from day to night. Did you try the trend yet? xx
