I have always had two very important personal style guiding principles that I live by :

1-Break all the rules and wear what you want!

2- Style is all about how you wear your items and not necessarily about what you have in your wardrobe!

With these two principles in mind, I decided to create a very bright and bold look  (… in the dead of winter) using a dress and a skirt! – Yes! my ‘Top’ is a dress!

It’s amazing what you can do with various items when you let your creativity take over. I’ve worn dresses as skirts, dresses as tops and even contemplated wearing a skirt as a dress! ^_^

All I did to achieve this look was to wear my yellow bardot dress first and then wear my full circle skirt over it! This trick is very quick and simple to do and what’s even more amazing about it is no one will know you are wearing a dress and a skirt unless you tell them!

So my lovelies, style is all about creativity – Do not be confined! Explore with the items you have in your wardrobe and you just might find that you have more outfits than you actually think!

PS : Did I forget to mention that I took these pictures myself? I’m learning to use my tripod more and more each day and I’m absolutely loving it!
