I’ve heard the “fashion advice” that “if you wore it the first time it was IN, you should not be wearing it when it comes ‘back'”. Well. I say, some rules, especially when it comes to fashion and personal style, are made to be broken.
One of my favorite “styling tricks” from oh, say, 4th -7th grade, was to layer a skinny, spaghetti strap dress or tank over a “baby tee”– my mom was also fully supportive of this trend, because in her words, “spaghetti straps look trashy on their own” (thanks mom!). So imagine my delight when I came across this (again, non-maternity, but is stretchy enough to make it over my 8 month bump) awesome 90s inspired dress by Topshop at Nordstrom! It’s my current fave length– midi– and is plain and simple on its own, but begs to be dressed up with a denim jacket like I did here, or a moto or a fur or a silk bomber (all future topper options!) and is totally perfect with these Adidas shelltops, another 90s throwback. I added two chokers– a black cord one and a gold clasp one– and mirrored sunnies to keep things current. It turned out to be one of my favorite looks to date!
