I remember when I was a teenager, I'd spent so many hours deciding on what to wear and on getting ready. All the clothes in the world weren't enough. Even though I still spent time on styling and putting a nice outfit together, I also didn't want it to take over. I mean, it's not the most important thing in life right?!
So nowadays with clothes, I like good quality, minimalistic and timeless pieces. I think about in how many different ways I can style the piece, so I can wear it often in different ways. That's why I decided to take one of my favorite go-to dresses for summer, and just style it in two different ways. A more casual look for during the day and a more dressed up evening look. This dress is just perfect, it's pretty loose, it has the perfect length and (obviously) you can wear it in a lot of different ways.
I decided to wear the black long dress with a simple white tee and for the day look I paired it with my black converse (I just can't get enough of these old school sneakers), my denim jacket and my waist-bag (sooo convenient). It's just a casual look that you can wear to a lot of things. I wore this while exploring Venice - LA.
For the evening look, I just switched the shoes and the jacket and wore the bag differently. I styled it with my blue embroidered ankle boots and my leather jacket. I find a leather jacket gives the outfit a bit of a cool vibe, but because of the fit it also gives it a more dressed up feeling. This was the perfect evening look to have a quick stroll at Santa Monica Boulevard and then go for dinner. It was a great day (besides alle the traffic jams)!
Which look do you like the best?
