Vintage is definitely here to stay. We oftentimes think that a long sleeved dress would be too conservative for a bride. That it hides her confidence and doesn’t make her stand out as much as if she were to bare her shoulders. But the trend has caught on and the lacy long sleeves are in! You can definitely make a statement with a long sleeved dress. I feel that the long sleeve lace would bring more of a romantic look to the bride. My mother wore a lace sleeve dress and she looked stunning and elegant in it. Of course, that was 20 some odd years ago and now this dress style is definitely coming back to stay. A bride does not need to bare all to stand out. The confidence she exudes in whatever she wears will shine through. So don’t be afraid to wear that long sleeve lacy dress you’ve been eyeing at the boutique. If that gown is what you want to wear, wear it with pride and strike a pose!
Today I thought I’d share with you guys a bit of what I would typically wear to work. My kind of fashion is pretty girly and I always have to have some sort of pop of color incorporated into my outfit or makeup look. And today I have incorporated turquoise both into my makeup and my outfit.
I love the fact that I can wear pretty much anything I want to work. I can dress in my own style and still keep it pretty presentable. Here I am wearing this stripped top that I found at Ross. (I absolutely love discount/thrift stores) I paired it with a body-con skirt I purchased at Forever 21. I love wearing these skirts and wearing stockings underneath. I don’t always like to show a lot of skin, especially at work. So I love wearing stocking underneath my skirts. The leather boots that I am wearing are so comfy. I’ve had them for quite some time already and they’re still standing strong. I think its been with me for about two years. And for about $45 bucks a pair, you can’t say that they weren’t a steal. To finish off my outfit, I put on this denim jacket that I found at a boutique store. It so lightweight and I just love the floral cuffs. It definitely gives it a more feminine look.
For my makeup, I like to add that pop of color but not too intense. Especially when I’m going to work, I like to keep it more subtle. I think this outfit is definitely Spring appropriate. Now I can’t wait for the weekend to come already so I can be in more comfortable clothes!!
