Tulip hem

 Tulip dress: Zara, Stripe shirt: H&M, Jacket: H&M, Boots: Old Navy, Accessories: H&M panama hat, Karen Walker sunglasses, Calvin Klein watch

The idea of an asymmetrical hem doesn't bother me but, it feels somewhat...played out. An asymmetrical hem that's subtle like this or this appears more modern and edgy to me but, I don't necessarily want or need to have it in my rotation. Nevertheless, I own such a dress. In fact, I've owned this tulip hem dress for several seasons and I totally forgot I had it until I wore the other day. I have to share a secret though. It was also laundry day.

  7. Omg what a cute skirt - I love the tulip hem! This outfit for some reason, looks like the ideal San Francisco outfit. It's chic but causal and the shoes make it all a bit "outdoorsy". Haha i'm not sure if i'm making any sense but you look great Nancy! xx Kat

  8. I love the hem of this dress! I remember when high-low hems were everywhere and I got tired of them pretty quickly, but this feels very fresh and summer appropriate.

  13. haha yaaaay for laundry day forcing the old treasures from the back of the closet! I LOVE the way you styled this, it's so pretty. Especially with the subtle stripes. Also, is that hat an old purchase from H&M? i love it and want it!!

  14. Yes laundry days do help me discover things that I have not worn in awhile. I am not a big fan of the high low hem since seems to trendy for my office and too dressy for my weekends. Like how you wore this dress layered with the stripe top and jacket.

  20. I totally understand your sentiments. I love seeing tulip skirts on other people, but rarely wear them myself. I love how you styled it though! Quirky and fun!

  26. I know how you feel! I loved that shape when it first came out, but now I sometimes roll my eyes when I see it. I do like this edgier version though. It has a slimmer silhouette which is really cool! <3

  28. have I already told you how much i LOVE your blog design??

    this outfit is such a fun mix of pieces. I have exactly ONE hi-low hem dress, I think they make me look shorter than I already am! I'm amazed at how well the utility-ish jacket goes with the skirt + boots! nice work!!

    ♥ perfectly Priya
