I don’t know if this happens to you, but it happens to me a lot: I buy something and then I just let it sit in my closet, waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it. It’s like that quote that’s so popular on Instagram: “The fear of waisting an outfit on an ordinary day”. Well, you know what? What if a dress can make an ordinary day extraordinary? I believe that to be true. I love fashion, as you know, and if you’re reading this, chances are you love fashion too. So let’s make a deal; instead of trying to avoid waisting an outfit, let’s avoid waisting precious time and just live in the moment! You want to wear those beautiful shoes you saved up so hard for? Do it! You want to try out a new trend like culottes but not sure it’s the right time? If not now, when? You found the perfect maxi dress for a beach getaway but find yourself swamped at work? Bring the beach to you and plan a tropical Sunday picnic! The point is… Life’s about seizing the day and living in the present, and clothes are meant to be worn, not stared at! That’s why I stopped waiting for the perfect occasion to wear this delicate, feminine chiffon dress from & Other Stories. I bought it back when I was in London, only to hang it up in my closet for the next few months… Just gathering dust and mold –because Panama. No, señor! Not anymore. I decided to throw it on, on a random weekday, and styled it with a structured bag from Saint Laurent to balance it off. I’m not to big on ruffles and girly, flowy things so the Sac De Jour was a perfect accessory to ground this outfit. For the rest of the details, read below! And remember, seize your closets people. Today is the day!
