SLIDER

december day

dress: soft joie, jacket: zara, shoes: converse

Even amongst my impending doom, I can appreciate the weather in LA. I love that I can wear an outfit like this in December. Personally, comfort >>> style. A cotton maxi dress is a pretty good compromise to both, in my opinion. This particular maxi, has a split. I know I'm not the only one who gets annoyed finds it amusing when celebs (ahem Angelina Jolie, Lea Michelle) walk the red carpet jutting their leg out as if it's dislocated, thinking they're hot shit. Alas, I still do think the slit can look nice, and have been seeing it more recently on more casual styles. What I don't really like though, is when there are slits on both sides. I'm all for symmetry, but I feel like then the middle of the skirt looks like... a super elongated loin cloth or something #awkward. But with some side slit swag, I think it adds some PIZZAZ! And what kind of people don't want some of that in their lives?

Didn't get a proper nail shot this week :( But they're deborah lippmann don't tell mama



 yes, my converse are on the brink of death

I'm a little bit of an instagram addict. I go on it on the way to class, while bored in class, in my bed, during meals, basically anytime to waste 5 minutes.

  3. I wish I could pull off a maxi dress like you do! And also, very jealous of your pleasant weather over in LA...we're freezing our bums off here. But yes, splits on both sides do make the rest of the garment look like a weird loin cloth thing! Side slits are pretty awesome though...but only when there is one :)

  13. Oh yea, that dislocated celebrity leg laways finds its way to the red carpet! Awful, what can I say.
    I actually really love the slit on your dress, meaning how you wear it. Chucks give it a sporty turn, perfect in my eyes.

  24. I know what you mean, the thigh split can be a bit comedic when done a la Jolie, but yours looks gorgeous! It is so subtle and it really works with the pared down outfit xx
