I’m a little shy when it comes to form fitting dresses — I feel uneasy just thinking of the phrase “skin tight” and all the images that conjures up. But then came along this dress from Langford Market. Long sleeves and a conservative hem make me feel more chic than clubby. And the fit? Sleek and slimming, rather than another “sl-” adjective that I’d rather not say. I won’t be ditching my beloved a-line shapes anytime soon, but I can say that I’m getting over my form fitting fears one outfit at a time.
This past Saturday, the BF and I went spent the afternoon in Brooklyn where we grabbed brunch, relaxed at a coffee shop and then indulged in a few sweet treats at a local bakery. It feels like a world away, but Brooklyn is one of my favorite places to explore.
Of course, whenever we pay a visit, I feel the need to mix up the wardrobe from the usual girly glam. I reached for my felt hat, plaid scarf and an oversized sweater for an effortless look. Thick rimmed sunglasses and skinny jeans might not be my thing, but I can still rock an outfit worthy of Williamsburg.
