slip dressing

Sometimes it really is just that easy. A simple black slip dress and summer sandals and I was out the door. I even had an extra 5 minutes to do a loose fishtail braid. This is exactly why a black slip dress is an essential in every girl's wardrobe. I slipped on a pair of simple black pumps, shook out the braids and I was ready to go for a nice dinner that night.

I am beyond stoked at the fact that I have held on to these boots for so long. I had them since the beginning of this blog and used to wear them constantly. I eventually moved on, but fast forward several years later I noticed them in the corner collecting dust and I knew right away that they needed to come out to play again. This multicolored stripe dress was the perfect compliment to the shoes, fun and playful! Perhaps I can even outfit repeat and wear this on 4th of July as well!

The wide leg pant is seen everywhere lately and it is definitely a trend I can get behind. I always welcome anything that requires very little effort and still looks chic with open arms. Since I am a bit on the short side, the best way for me to style the wide leg pant is with a crop top. It lengthens my legs so they don't get swallowed up in all that fabric. As you know, I'm always wearing some type of high waisted bottom with a crop top. When you find that magic formula, you stick with it! What are some of your favorite current trends? Are you guys into the wide leg? Let me know!
