Hello lovelies! I’m back with another OOTD, yay! I’m sure you read the title and asked yourself, “Glam and bohemian are two completely opposite things! She’s losing it.” Well for this look, I did the impossible and combined some glam shoes with a totally bohemian dress! This fashion season is very unique, for example lots of modern western wear will be released. It’s not a particular look I’m into, but I thought I’d take a stab at mixing styles and doing something different! Here are some photos of the look, again I went with a more editorial style when it came to poses and the shoot altogether.
When I initially saw this dress in the shop, I wasn’t sure it was exactly my style. To be honest it kind of looked like a giant striped bag on the hanger, LOL. When I’m shopping, I try to keep an open mind though. An item on the hanger can look completely different on an actual person. I went shopping for this on my lunch break, so after my shift I was so excited to go try it on, and I’m so glad I did! When it comes to my body type, I really love when my waist is cinched and sleeves are long. This dress hit both those marks! I bought this piece at a store called Irene’s Story.
I’ve been buying lots of stripes lately, for no particular reason. The print is so easy to work with (if the stripes are vertical) and fun to style! I’m also completely obsessed with the giant pockets on the front! Nothing is better than finding pockets on the perfect summer dress. They’re easily overlooked but so incredibly useful! Changing up the direction of the stripes was a great detail to place on the pockets as well. This dress has a very deep V when it comes to the neckline. I wore this to work with a small white tank top underneath and it worked perfectly. If you need to cover up a bit for work, a simple white tank top is the easiest way to do that and still look bomb!
Now onto the shoes! I recently bought these Steve Maddens for work. They have two thick straps on the top and one around the ankle, secured with velcro. Since I’m on my feet all day, I need shoes that don’t have much of a heel but are still fashionable. The platform on these shoes are completely flat, so I don’t get that sharp pain in my heels. I’m actually shocked by how easy they are to walk in for over 8 hours! The thick platform is completely white, which is one reason I paired them with this dress. They compliment the white stripes so nicely in my opinion! I’ve also never had a pair of shoes that are so metallic and a rose gold color. Rose gold has been such a popular color lately, and for some reason I love how they contrast with my bohemian dress.
As for accessories, I wore my gray bralette underneath and a new necklace I bought recently. It’s very minimalistic and works with so many outfits for the summer. As for my watch, I have a post coming very soon so hang in there! 😉 There’s something very special waiting for you guys!
I hope you enjoyed today’s OOTD! I really love this dress and how adjustable it is with the drawstring waistline. I genuinely think this kind of dress would work well for any body type! Just like a wrap dress, it is very customizable to your own body. Let me know what you think of mixing glam and bohemian down in the comments below! Hope you all are having an amazing summer so far and I’ll talk to you in the next post! Love you lots! xx
