I like to follow the trends. I don't always jump on all the band wagons, but every now and again I find myself joining in on the fun. When the high-low dress trend sparked up this past spring I was intrigued. I looked for quite a while to find the perfect high-low dress and after a bit of trial and error, I found what was to be my token high-low piece in my closet:
What I Wore
Jackie Cardigan-J Crew Factory
Shimmer Dust Belt-Anthropologie (now on sale for $29.95 in gold online)
Shimmered Seagrove T-Strap Sandals-Anthropologie (now on sale for $19.95!)
Color Goes On Necklace-Anthropologie
Skinny Resin Bangle-Banana Republic
Repercussive Light Earrings-Anthropologie
Fireworks Ring-Banana Republic
I took this cute dress in an XS and the winning moment for me was the fact that the high section in the front actually covered my knobby knees somewhat...score! I tried the cute Striped Terry Midi Dress that went on sale this week at Anthro and loved the cute color and striping, but it just didn't hang on me the way I wanted it to. The fabric is heavier so it just sorta flared out at the bottom instead of hanging straight down and the "high" section was about an inch above my knees, which did NOT cover up my knobby knees. Sadly I passed on that one. I just really liked the way this Nordstrom dress fell and the fun Kelly green color. It's a color I don't have a lot of so it fit great into my closet. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone in the market!
I ended up wearing this dress last week while we were staying in Scottsdale. I felt like relaxing a little so I went with flat sandals, which I rarely do with a dress. It made walking around the mall pretty darn easy though, I must admit. I think I'll go for wedges next time though...change is good. =)
Hope you're having a great week!
