The Jeans Girl That Fell In Love With Dresses
Dress H&M / Shoes Steve Madden / Sunglasses Céline / Bag Zara
As we speak, I’m on my way downtown to attend an event with Parlor at the James Hotel. I’m 50% excited and 50% scared AF, because I’m going by myself, and I probably don’t know anyone there. But that’s the whole purpose of it, I’m telling myself. Putting myself out there. Getting to know more people in my industry here in New York. It’s strange having worked jobs for almost three years, I got so used to having colleagues to talk to every day and to catch up with. But know, working from home, and trying out this whole new career thing, I don’t have any colleagues, and I don’t necessarily see people every day unless I go out specifically for that. I mean, I do see Edward, but he doesn’t count.
So tonight I’m throwing myself into a terrifying situation having to introduce myself to loads of new people. But let’s just hope they are all open to talk and have a good time. It’s only 1,5h anyway, so if it’s bad, it’s over pretty fast. Can you tell I’m nervous?!
But instead of all this anxiety talk, let’s move on to the outfit. I’m in a dress! That really doesn’t happen that often, yet it’s happened more the past month last the past year. I always felt kind of off wearing dresses, and I’m definitely more of a jeans-girl, but I think I finally found my style in dresses. Feminine, but simple, and with a silhouette that flatters my body.
This one didn’t even break the bank. It’s from H&M, and I actually bought it last summer. I only wore it once though, typical me. But as I spoke about; since my shopping stop, I’ve rediscovered so much of my clothes and I simply love this dress now. It’s dark, which not a lot of my clothes are, it’s feminine with peplum sleeves, and it’s flattering with the little tie-in belt in the waist. Loving it!
So this is what I’m wearing for my event tonight. An outfit you feel good in will take you a long way to put yourself out there. I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday evening, and I’ll see you tomorrow for a brand new vlog!
