Love reusing old pieces and re-imagining them into fresh outfits. After the dress over pants trend and skirt over trousers, I thought I should try something new and layer a dress over a skirt. Got that skirt for over a year and used it in so many casual easy-peasy outfits, but yesterday I wanted to go for something fun, unexpected and chic. My first choice was layering the striped dress over a pair of culottes, but already styled a similar outfit with some suit trousers. Then I thought, why shouldn’t I just pull it over the matching striped midi skirt? So, I did and loved the outcome.
The outfit was a total eye catcher and I’m definitely planning on dressing this way again. Love reusing outfits every now and then because it feels comforting. So, besides layering the two pieces, I matched everything with the new sandals. Posted them on stories as soon as I got the package and I was so so happy about their quality and the color is simply gorgeous. The pearl embellishments definitely gave a modern update to the classic block heel strappy sandals. In line with this, my red craziness wouldn’t have been complete without the oval sunnies. Accessorized a little more with the emerald bag I kept wearing, statement earrings and the never missing boater hat. How do you feel about this unexpected look? Would you try it?
