I had been feeling shitty for a few days in a row prior to this photoshoot, so what would have been a better way to break the streak of less fortunate days than to dress in the most doll-like outfit and hit the city with my BFF? I swear, there is none (unless you count dressing up like a pretty boy and doing the same thing. But hey, can a pretty boy look like a doll, too? A male porcelain doll, that is).
Actually, this shirt dress appeared twice on the blog, but somehow it was hidden in both posts. Today, I'm showing you this piece the way I like to wear it the most: with a huge bow under the collar and a cardigan thrown over it. 100% femme me and very classy at the same time.
I'm always jealous of how Klara manages to incorporate oxfords into girly outfits. Here, however, I decided to try the same thing with my own burgundy pair (not for the first time, though).
So, did the whole dressing up thing work? Yes! Just as we were sipping coffee after the photoshoot, I started getting one rad news after another and, to be honest, I'm still getting them! Not everything is going perfectly smooth in my life, but I can always expect at least one thing to brighten up my day. And that's good, I think. I hope all those not-so-perfect matters will get better as well, given time.
