I’ve recently started to focus on the little black dress section of my wardrobe (read as ‘current obsession’). Every magazine and blog has told me over and over again how important the little black dress is to your wardrobe. I’ve had many but as my style has evolved I’ve let them go and only just now started to think about what an essential it is. I have a couple of new ones, this one by Hush and another by Second Female which I’ll feature soon.
My style is always about balance, I don’t like to look girly as it doesn’t feel comfortable to me but that doesn’t mean I want to dress like a boy either. I look for ways to create a neutral look that balances feminine and masculine details. Wearing trainers with a dress is something I do quite often. I live in trainers as I’m always running across town for various events and meetings, and heels just aren’t practical. I also try to only carry a small shoulder bag most of the time so carrying a pair of heels around is an extra effort I try to avoid.
