Slip Dress

 Sweater: Target (recent sale), Slip dress: H&M, Plaid shirt: Forever 21, Oxfords: DV x Dolce Vita, Accessories: Aldo's mirrored sunglasses, Gap stripe beanie, Lionette and Baublebar necklaces, La Mer x Target leopard wrap watch, Nike FuelBand, Prada saffiano tote

I tried the slip dress / lingerie as outerwear  trend during college and never felt like it looked as awesome on me as it did on others. Perhaps it was the way the outfits were styled and my body type. Perhaps it was me feeling awkward and me still trying to find my own look. Whatever the reason, here I am, attempting the trend again. This time around, I'm feeling more confident in my own skin and trying to find different ways to incorporate trends without feeling trendy and off the rack. Whether or not the outfit works (on me or anyone else for that matter) is debatable but, I'm loving my second chance at trends and other things in life.

  3. I like this! The slip dress and flannel are so 90s but the colors and accessories keep it modern.

  7. Nancy, you did an awesome job. The key is not wearing it as a slip dress. HaHaHa Love the sweater and button down with it. It looks great together.

  10. I have never tried the lingerie trend - I think it was just to exposed for me. I like how you wore the sweatshirt over the slip dress but the pretty lace hems shows so you know it's a lingerie dress.

  16. I love it!! Looks awesome on you-- and classy enough that you wouldn't be able to immediately tell it was a slip. Adore the layering too!
