New Silhouettes

shirt - maxi dress - shoes (old navy) - bag
I'm continuing to experiment with new silhouettes that are different from my skinny jean + drapey t-shirt combo that I love so much. I'm not sure this one worked out as well as I had envisioned? Let me know. I was going for an all drape look and I think I like it. But I think it would have been a little better if the shirt were a little more cropped. I'm trying to figure out some new ways to wear this maxi dress. It's actually grown on me quite a bit since it's so comfortable. I was really contemplating buying another one in a color... but we'll see.

Anyways, I wore this to work yesterday and it was super comfortable. My entire outfit was made of knit viscose from head to toe, so you know how that goes. I was definitely thinking, "maybe I shouldn't have chosen this outfit to wear to work" on my way to the train. I felt a little ridiculous, but I'm lucky I work in such a casual place still. I was thinking about this the other day as I reflected on the time I was looking for a job, and realized that if I had to take a job where the dress code was business professional/casual, I would have nothing to wear.

On a side note - I'm starting to stress out about my move on June 1! I haven't even started to pack yet and am only now realizing how much stuff I have. At least this will give me a chance to edit a little. I need to get my plastic moving boxes from my parents house this weekend. Three day weekend for Memorial Day though!


  1. It looks good! I've been liking the high-waist + cropped top combination lately too, but I don't own many cropped things.

    Good luck with the packing!

    1. Thanks! I don't own very many cropped things either, mainly since I can't really wear it to work :\
