This weekend, I attended the Blogger Lounge presented by Well Dressed Midwest. Several weeks before the event, I had a great sleeveless dress picked out for the event that I kept obsessing over. Every time I caught a glimpse of it, I got another wave of excitement! But Friday morning came and I woke up to weather that was freezing cold! It was time for a change of plans…
So, I put together an outfit that I ended up loving even more than my original plan! My top is a simple black & white striped top from Forever xxi that is such a staple for my wardrobe!
Then, I accented the top with a new faux fur vest from the Buckle and one of my favorite necklaces ever, a hot pink knot necklace from Accessory Concierge. Finally, I tucked the top into a thrifted black skater skirt, threw on my new heels from Target and headed to the event.
Something I have been working on this year when it comes developing my style is to take risks that think outside the box but all the while making sure I still feel comfortable in what I’m wearing. Since I’m almost six feet tall, a lot of times I don’t wear heels. But, with a killer new pair of shoes on and a fun outfit, I felt so confident and myself.
The event was one of the first things to kick off Saint Louis Fashion Week, and let me tell you, if Friday night’s event was anything like the rest of Fashion Week is going to be, it will easily be one of the best weeks of my life. If you’re in the St. Louis area and haven’t grabbed up some tickets, head over HERE and get some before they sell out! You definitely won’t regret it!
Have a great week & I will see you at Fashion Week!
