Fall starts next month and I’m ready for summer to be gone. The humidity AND the insects have been entirely too disrespectful this year. Be as it may, I still managed to go through the majority of the summer wearing pants. Yes, you read that correctly. The self prescribed ultra feminine Jasmine has been wearing more pants than dresses. I don’t think I even touched a skirt this year because I got rid of them.
I tried to force myself to find more dresses to wear this summer but every attempt has failed so far. I even enlisted my mom’s help. Okay, it looked more like me complaining to her and her asking me if I just like wearing pants more than anything. Nothing is wrong with the dresses I’ve seen at all. I just prefer pants but that’s not always convenient when you start sweating within 5 seconds of walking outside during the summer.
So I made my own “dress”.
Okay, I can’t sew worth a darn so I didn’t actually make anything. What I did was take this frill sleeve blouse from SheIn and tuck it into my skort from Zara. So maybe it’s not a full skirt to give an actual 360 degrees dress illusion but it’s close enough. Although the shades of white differ a bit, it’s not significant enough for me to think this can’t pass as a dress. Sometimes you can use what you already have in your closet to achieve the look you want.
Summer is over in just a few weeks (*huge grin*) so I figured I needed to squeeze in one more white outfit before I we enter the stage where the weather calls for transitional pieces.
