Too Dressed to be Stressed

IMG_9107.JPG

Sometimes life gets messy and you have to put on your big girl denim distressed pants, heels and strut through it with style and grace. I know fashion sometimes gets a bad rep for being superficial but being able to blog and style is my outlet when life gets crazy. This look was a risk for me. I have never styled a dress with denim and when I put this together I was a little hesitant but I just went for it. I hope you guys like it!

After recently watching Jennifer Lopez in Monster- in -Law and seeing her styled with a dress over jeans, I decided to pull my wrap dress out and give a try and to my surprise I actually liked it. This look always intrigued me because it’s not something you see every day and I always wanted to recreate it.

I styled my Forever21 wrap dress over my American apparel bodysuit paired with my favorite H&M denim jeans. I just love bodysuits especially this one with long sleeves and a deep V neckline. They are an essential to my wardrobe, because they can be styled in numerous ways whether it’s a pair of jeans, wide leg pants or skirt. Do yourself a favor and get a few,  American apparel has great options and quality.

I cannot get enough of these H&M distressed denim jeans and I am so upset with myself for not getting another pair. Denim and I have a love hate relationship. I love everything denim from jeans, jackets or button downs but when it comes to jeans I can never find a pair that fit me like these. If you have any recommendations for high rise denim with stretch please drop a comment below. P.S. No fashion nova, although I love them the quality is not there.

                                                                               This look is the epitome of doing too much and even though I deny it doing too much is my thing. ;)

I have a major obsession with jackets (I always get cold) so I used my plaid blazer I snagged from Forever21 for $9 on sale as an added accessory! This look was completed with my lace up booties from DSW, oversized round frame sunglasses from Forever21 and layering necklaces. One of them says Nobody's Perfect ( I love J. Cole) just a gentle reminder that no one has it all figured out. Like this outfit and style in general not all your looks will be perfect and sometimes you will look back and think why did I wear that! It's fashion have fun with it and go for it.
