two posts in one week! i’m moving on up, eh? this post was actually delayed due to some technical difficulties, but i finally got it up. this is a follow-up to the first slip dressing post from a couple of weeks ago. i wanted to show you another way to style slips, this time in a decidedly more flirty, girly way than was featured in the first installment. i also think it is a perfect valentine’s day outfit inspiration (although, maybe choose a less snarky sweater). this is another look shot by will vastine, and i think the tones of these pictures are some of the prettiest i’ve ever featured on the blog.
the slip in these photos should be familiar — you’ve seen it once before here and you’ll see it again! it’s one of free people’s most popular items and for good reason; it’s easy to wear, versatile, and lends itself to different styles easily. it’s also a great price point (for free people, anyway) and you get a really good return on your investment when you look at cost-per-wear. it’s a great piece to throw on and go. try pairing it with flares for a really fun play on proportion, or with your favorite denim cutoffs on the first warm day of the year. for a more sweet and girly look, wear it with tights, a pretty cardigan, and pointed-toe flats.
to me this is a fun valentine’s day outfit because it isn’t too obvious (i mean, you could definitely sub in a red sweater if you’re feeling more festive!) and is laid-back but still flirty and a little sexy. i always think thigh-high socks have a little sex appeal, and so do the sheer black hose. one thing i hate is feeling like i’m dressing in a “costume” or “theme,” or something too predictable for whatever i’m doing (i.e.: wearing a cowboy hat to go out in downtown nashville *side-eye emoji*).
i’m totally in love with these shoes. i can’t wait to live in them when it warms up with jeans, cutoffs and dresses – the color is very versatile for me, and i love the chunky heel because they will also be comfortable!
thanks, will, for such a great shot!
that’s a wrap, folks! ➸
many thanks for reading!
