Last Friday, a good friend and fellow librarian and I were talking about our individual styles and what kind of “look” makes us feel at our best. For my friend, who has a classically feminine shape, she feels and looks best in ’50s-style dresses, with nipped-in waists and full skirts. I often feel at my best when I go for a “long and lean” ’70s-style look.
Hence, today’s outfit that features a ’70s-style wrap dress. It’s amazing how well these dresses flatter a woman’s shape — and yet completely cover the body. I mean, I am in long sleeves, y’all, and covered from neck to knees, and yet I felt so feminine and (dare I say it?) sexy. There, I said it!
The big pearl statement necklace was a last-minute decision, but I’m so glad I did! The colors go really well, plus it means I can participate in this month’s Style Trend Link Up Challenge with t+j Designs!
