Do you have personal rules for dressing that you don't even think about breaking?
I thought it might be a fun exercise to break all my own styling rules in the blog posts this week.
I rarely wear a shirt that buttons down the front. Being busty means gaps and buttons that fail. One way I overcome that problem is to buy a size larger, but that always results in sleeves that are way too long. Short of tailoring, three-quarter length sleeves are the perfect solution to this problem.
The bracelet I am wearing was sent to me by French Kande. The quilted chain bag is old from Express.
I haven't worn shorts in about twenty years. They don't fit into my lifestyle, and I feel very self-conscious about my left leg's technicolor veins. For the same reason, I rarely wear dresses.
These Bermuda length polka dot pull-on shorts by Tribal Sportswear are so cute; I decided to give them a try. These items were sent to me by a site that has since closed down.
The shorts are nicely tailored with comfortable slits at the sides, and they end at my best skirt length, which all works well for me. When the occasion calls for something more sporty or casual, this look will serve me well while maintaining my personal style.
Above, I paired the look with a black vest sent to me by Fabrizio Gianni but the more casual look, without the vest, is another option.
Flats are another wardrobe item I rarely wear. I do not find flats comfortable most of the time. When I purchase them when they would be more appropriate for the look or the event, I search for a foot flattering slim style that shows the top of the foot and pointed toes.
