It feels like I barely ever wear dresses these days, looking back at the last few weeks I have had only pants or matching suits on rotation. Now I’m over indulging in the femininity of this dress with halter neck, backless top and layered textured skirt. Wearing pants to feel underdressed and boyish is a camouflage mechanism of mine, which is why the rare occasion of such a structured yet flattering cocktail dress (that isn’t just a revealing bodycon number) that I am comfortable in doesn’t go unnoticed.
By the end of Fashion Week I was feeling exhausted and dull. I’m sure a lot girls can relate- when you just need to change a little something to spark some confidence back in yourself. Without over thinking I took it out on my hair by going blonder and bluntly chopped nearly 3 inches off, which felt like I left the worries and woes of the last few months on the hairdressers floor. This is the shortest it has ever been as my hair is usually my security blanket to hide behind, but with it gone and forcing me out of my comfort zone I know I’m not going to let it grow again anytime soon.
