Come Sail Away

I've had this little Romwe sailor dress for a while, and have always struggled with ways to make it look cute, and not costume-y. I'd try it on every once in a while, only to take it off and put something else on. But lately I've been embracing my own style inclinations. I love sailor things, I love cat dresses, and I love cutesy shoes. So why not wear these things that I love so much?

So often in Winter it is easier for me to throw on a giant sweater, jeans, and a pair of boots. It's comfortable, classic, and warm. Dresses can be tricky and not always work right. But I own a lot of dresses. Like a lot. Like I just reorganized my closet and was stunned that dresses make up half my wardrobe. But I don't always wear them. I'm trying to make myself wear all the things in my closet that I love dearly that I often shy away from. It's time to be bold. 

What things do you always want to wear, but avoid out of fear or complication?

  2. Gorgeous!!! You have beautiful coloring! And the dress is dang cute. I don't know if I could pull it off, but I love it!

  10. I used to mix-and-match my wardrobe all the time. I was actually just telling my mom this right before I stumbled across your blog. I miss how my innovative outlook made my wardrobe totally new every time I dressed. Lately I've been wearing technically stylish things, but I feel so boring. Thanks for the extra little push I needed! I'm going to start being creative again!

    I'm so glad I came across your blog on Bloglovin. I'm following you now. I'm looking forward to seeing more sailor things, cat dresses, and cutesy shoes!
