I was kind of going for a twist on a retro, Carribean school uniform look, only less colorful.
My friends and I are pretty good for wearing dresses as shirts, and shirts as tanks, and tanks as skirts, and so on....Here, I wore this dress as a top.
In only my blouse and dress I was well on my way to having one of those change 6 times and dash mornings when I decided to "work through it"-- aka figure out exactly what was bugging me about what I already had on. I turned my dress into a top. Then, I added jeans and the booties to balance out my hair. (Your hair has a color like an accessory so you can use it as such.) Without the pants there isn't much balance in the look. Meaning, the dress is brown and so is my skin...It just blends ...which is why I don't wear much brown in that tone (accentuate the skin don't hide in it).
Eh...that was a brief trip on my train of thought. It was early guys, don't judge.
I will provide a more in-depth account of my "style techniques" and tips later.
