my style

Checkmate.

checkmate7

Been a little too into the whole ‘wrap around jacket around your waist’ look lately… I’ve always been a fan, but seems like these last few months I’ve been drawn to reach out for my plaid shirt, denim or leather jacket to wrap around even more! Something about it adds a cool detail. It has such a ‘I don’t care’ kinda vibe which I appreciate.

Anyway, this knitted dress was the perfect bold piece to make a statement- it help me stay warm while it was easy to transition from day to night with just a pair of strappy heels! I was having a bad hair day where I didn’t feel like wearing it down, so I thought wearing it in a cool rope-like pony tail would be the perfect touch! It completed the 90’s look!

    Love how you turned a bad hair day into an awesome messy ponytail,. I remember when I was in school, I use to tie the sweaters around my waist during winters. It was cool.

    Your checked dress is beautiful, especially the buckle detail
