As I’m nestled in front of my computer, high on fresh berries of all varieties and colours from my garden, I’m hoping to persuade you to try the following… Nearly everyone has a long forgotten dress gathering dust because it’s too short or too much see-through at the bottom. That at least is what your adult taste tells you in complete disregard of your revolutionary high school standards in that respect. Well, why wouldn’t you for once go back to your sweet or rough high school days when all these flaws were an amenity instead of a drawback. Dig up this disfavoured dress, restore its dignity by bringing it back to the realm of daylight, revamp it into a tunic and pair it with a skinny jeans. Dress it up with a saddle bag or tote, ankle boots or wedges, and some sprightly bangles.
I’m quite a proponent of the white on white (or ivory) look, which in my view works lovely with tan coloured accessories. However, other colour combinations are possible as well! I don’t wear distressed jeans that often but in the case of white jeans, I prefer them over regular ones. I suspect regular white jeans remind me too much of the clean white leggings I and all my peers wore with our dresses on the occasion of our Holy Confirmation at age 12.
