A love the way a dress makes me feel. When wearing a pretty dress I feel both young and womanly. There’s something romantic and obviously feminine about a dress. Its classic and I adore it. I love wearing pants as well, I’m not all dresses and skirts, but I feel right at home in a delicate frock with a little flounce and movement to it. When selecting looks for our trip to New York, I knew this dress would be accompanying me. It was wonderful for a day of strolling through Central Park with Sam and popping in and out of some of my favorite shops.
The earth-tones of my look reminded me of fall and I chose the brown suede boots to keep that feel throughout the outfit.
The dress has a decent amount of drape to it so I belted it to help define my waist a bit. I chose a very slim, matte gold belt as I wanted it to blend into the look and not steal the show. Belts are great but they can be a little challenging to incorporate into a look.
I went with my favorite shrunken bag so I didn’t have to worry about carrying a large bag around all of New York City. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve carried a giant bag around the city and I will probably do it again but I do try to give my back a break from time to time, especially if I know I might be accumulating shopping bags.
I purchased this dress from a fabulous online boutique. The owner is completely precious and is expanding the boutique to a physical location in addition to her fashion truck and online boutiques. I am thrilled about having an actual store to stop into. She always has perfect and unique pieces curated in her shop. You can find her online shop here: Meraki Moon
Since the dress hit just above the knee, I wanted my over the knee boots to elongate the legs. I also love the way a longer length coat looks over high boots. Since I’m on the petite (short) side I do appreciate a good leg-lengthening trick here and there. I love my size and height but it certain clothes can make me look disproportionate if i’m not careful and that’s where a great over the knee boot comes in (short girls take note!)
I love pieces that feel a little ethereal and wearing this dress has absolutely inspired me to add more romantic pieces into my wardrobe. Hopefully you all appreciate feminine style because you will definitely be seeing more of it here!
