Getting Dressed

Getting Dressed
Kimono Dress-H&M (seen here) (similar style), Sweater-J. Crew, Top-Gap, Pants-Vintage (seen here), Shoes-Dolce Vita, Watch-Michael Kors 

The process of choosing an outfit is half the fun of going out. I enjoy the daily ritual of opening my closet and seeing what speaks the loudest. I have staples like stripes, sequins, and flirty dresses that get worn often. But I prefer to go by what suits my mood. One day I may feel like being bohemian or girlie and other days I may go totally preppy. That's what's fun about personal style--it's all about you. And if you feel good in what you're wearing that's what really matters.

I'm totally mesmerized by that H&M kimono top, it's so beautiful! And it is true, what really matters is if you feel good in what you're wearing. That is the personal style girls should keep.

Thanks ladies! I adore that H&M Kimono dress. I wear it as a robe a lot b/c it is so big on me. I put a slip on under and it looks so bright and fun!

Amber said...

I agree Taylor! I love switching up my style because I love getting dressed and I love that what I put on is a reflection of how I feel!

I just tried on that sweater from JCrew. I was in love, but they didn't have my size at the store. Now seeing it on you again, I might have to just buy it online. It really is beautiful. Love your style :)

Marissa said...

The colors in that kimono dress are beautiful!
I've seen this Jcrew top on a few bloggers now and am obsessing over it! I'll have to see if they still have it.

XXXO

Lainey said...

Seeing you wearing the kimono dress really made me miss wearing mine. It's completely buried in my closet. I've only worn it once, and I really should wear it again. I love this post. ;)
