AHOTC: Denim and Lace


Last week I was searching for the perfect dress for an upcoming wedding. I have a hard time finding a dress because I am so tall. I am 1.83 centimeter or 6 feet tall with a long torso. The problems I run into are  that the dresses often are way too short. And I know myself, I wont wear a dress more than once. Especially if it is a formal dress. I don't go to many occasions so the dress has to be versatile.

When I walked into my Ross (dress for less) I found this cute blue dress, I instantly fell in love, the color is so vibrant and I just looooove the lace sleeves. It covers my arms and yet it shows some skin. But as you can see this dress is way to short to wear with some tights.


I decided to buy it anyway and paired it up with my Torrid skinny jeans. Those jeans are my favorite all time! It gives me a nice booty and the color is beautiful too. The blue of the jean is fading on the knees but I kinda like that! The other thing that i like about it is that the skinny part still is skinny!


This day we went out to a restaurant to eat some lunch and I didn't want to go over the top with hair and make-up. I recently dyed my hair this auburn color and I love it so far. I matches my skin tone better than the brown/blonde did. I kept the make-up simple, just some earth tones with a hit of red on the lips.
