Those of you that follow my blog, you know my affinity for dresses and skirts. I love them. There is simply something so feminine about that look that outside of winter you will rarrrrrrrely see me in pants.
For this post, I tried to mix it up a little. I styled this Elvi top with culottes from @asoscurve. I finished the look with light gray, suede sneakers from @kennethcole-blog to give it a more athleisure look.
I should’ve been 22 in ‘78 🤷🏾♀️
born in the wrong era, but, I’m still groovy.

I can dig it 😏
I basically have had “ants in my pants” with how eager I have been to post this look. My friend Peter shot this set Thursday and I’ve looked at it every day since then. It has been a long time since I felt this beautiful.
Initially, I was afraid of this dress. I don’t really like to show off my stomach and it has a prominent cut out. I tried to shop around it and ignore it, but I couldn’t get the style out of my mind. So I caved. I could picture how I wanted this blog shoot to look from the location (Mount Holly Historic Cemetery) to the props I wanted to use to set the tone (vintage Nancy Drew novel). I was not going to let my fear of 5 inches of skin stand in the way of what I knew could be an awesome set. I am so glad that I ignored that voice inside my head.
