OUTFIT. This is the one and only outfit post that was shot during the traditional family weekend at the lake. And I must say, I couldn’t imagine a better scenery for that slightly maritime outfit I found on ABOUT YOU, a quite new online shop. I’ve had a soft spot for long dresses for some time now but I’ve never really managed to find one that suits my figure well. After all, it shouldn’t be too tight, nor too loose to look good 😉 I was lucky enough to discover this striped number by Vila that fits exactly how I want it to (extra points because it also suits the lake ;)).
During the cold season, I sometimes find myself in trouble with my outfit choices because I don’t always seem to have the right jacket or coat to go along. My secret weapon is a parka which I think goes with pretty much everything from a casual dress like this one to something more elegant (see below for a proof!). I think it will become my best friend during the colder days ahead and I don’t mind because it’s perfect to snuggle up…
How to combine a parka (the classy way):
That’s my way to style a parka and a dress a bit more classy – works really well, I think. That pretty embroidered dress caught my eye instantly and I wouldn’t mind a similar piece in my closet! It’s a really sweet match with nude ankle boots, a statement necklace and a clutch. Of course I couldn’t resist to add some socks to that collage 😉
