Chambray Shirt – Madewell / Tulle Dress – H&M / Booties – Munro @Nordstrom
The next few outfits after this one are what I call my experimental period. You’ll start to notice soon that I was really testing the waters and pushing the boundaries on some of the outfit combinations I was putting together. Not all of them always worked, but at least we now have the photographic evidence on why they didn’t and we won’t try them again :)
On this particular day, I just really wanted to incorporate this tulle into my outfit. Every day, I saw it hung up on my closet and thought well, if I’m not going to wear it, I should get rid of it. I was determined to find a place for it though so I put on the dress (which I only wore once for Halloween for a princess costume) and put my chambray shirt over it tying it in the front. This was my most girliest outfit yet. It’s not that it was a terrible ensemble – it wasn’t – but it also didn’t feel like me. Because the top half of the dress is done up with sequins, I was itchy and uncomfortable all day. The tulle is also VERY sheer, but luckily for us – we avoided what could have been a massive wardrobe malfunction. All in all… lesson learned and now that we’ve made an outfit work with the dress, I think we can safely say that it is time to retire it.
