Isn’t it funny how something as simple as switching out a pair of shoes can change an outfit so dramatically? I first had this outfit paired with my high heeled EF sandals. I felt (and looked) a bit more formal than I wanted to. So I decided to look in my closet again and came up with these Clark’s leather flats that I’ve had for awhile but are oh-so-comfy! I ended up liking how they looked with the dress and blazer so that’s what I decided on footwear-wise.
The casualness of the outfit was interrupted just slightly by the Isabel Marant blazer which can make any outfit a little more chic, don’t you think?
I’m also getting a lot of wear out of this dress . By James Perse, it’s quite form hugging but at the same time super comfortable. The fabric is very stretchy and soft and I’m so glad I went down a size from 2 to 1 because the fit is so much better. The size 2 just had too many loose “sections”, shall we say. As you can see, the dress is what’s known as “midi” length, where it hits just at mid-calf. This can make walking a little tricky if you’re someone who likes taking big steps in your stride, so keep that in mind if you decide to order this dress. I love the dress so much that I just take smaller steps, problem solved.
