Last Friday, I posted a photo during a day out with friends and I received lots of Instagram DM’s about my outfit. My go-to uniform without a doubt is a good t-shirt and jeans. With such a basic look, you have more flexibility when it comes to accessories and shoes because you can really go all out to tie up the look. As always, I go to Pinterest for outfit ideas and I purchased a new slip dress recently from the sale rack in Forever 21 (similar here & here) and it’s a few sizes too big. I have been trying to figure out what can I do with this dress since it is a little big on me so I decided to look for inspiration from Pinterest. 

I searched for dress over denim and I seen a lot of cute looks with slip dresses over denim. I personally thought I couldn’t pull it off, but I decided to rock it anyway. 

Dress: No longer available but similar here & here

Bag: Forever 21

Denim: Re/Done (I added the distressing)

Tee: Nordstrom

Shoes: Not pictured but they’re from Target!

With Spring in full effect, sometimes the weather can be up and down. I again decided to lightly layer and create this look once again. Do not limit yourself to just slip dresses, looking on Pinterest I have seen looks with different types of dresses. 

I decided to show this look with two different shoe styles. You guys know I have been loving my kitten heels lately and I try to pair them with every outfit possible. I decided to add my favorite pair of black raw denim skinny jeans and a black tiered maxi dress (similar here & here). I chose to go for the tiered maxi because it makes the look less boxy and frumpy. 

To switch it up, I decided to add a pair of stiletto heels just for another shoe option. Adding the stiletto heel made a difference because of the added height and it made everything fall in the right places. Again I pair this look with my current favorite black bag at the moment.

    What a bold styling choice! I loved this trend back in the 00’s but as I’m so petite, it makes me look shorter and my legs look stubbier so I’m not sure it’s for me. I do think it makes you look super chic!
