It occured to me the other day that you haven’t seen me in blue jeans yet on this site, whereas I actually really like the look of a well fitted pair of jeans with a nice top. Jeans are a great casual staple that you can make instantly chicer with the right jacket or top. It’s just that I don’t wear my jeans that often in Singapore as it’s basically too hot. When I want to go casual, the most comfortable casual looks here are actually slouchy dresses.
This particular one is very comfortable which has a jeans kind of feel. It’s no coincidence that it was bought at Guess. Although it is slouchy it still has a shape to it as well, due to some well placed pleats in the front and back. It’s even very trendy now as the back is longer than the front. I was ahead of the trend! (as this is an old dress that was bought 4 years ago).
The fabric has also faded a little bit which is why this is purely a casual dress for me. However, if you combine it with my very versatile necklace again, the dress become instanly chicer and a nicer outfit. It’s actually amazing how much difference a simple (cheap) necklace like that can make. The dress looks very blah without it and interesting with it.
I’m sure you must be getting bored with this necklace by now as I’ve worn it with the last 3 outfits shown on the site here, but just consider it as a great example of remixing for the necklace!
The other thing you will notice today is that my hair is shorter again. Every time I go to the hairdresser it gets a little shorter. I’m still quite bored with my haircut, but know that I will miss the convenience of a pony tail, especially just before the holidays. So now its just short enough for a nice shoulder length, but long enough to put my hair in a pony tail. I have also gone back to a short fringe. Much more comfortable for me and I actually quite like the look.
