I am a klutz. I freely admit this - I'm constantly bumping into things, falling down, tripping over nothing, and gaining mysterious bruises from mishaps I don't even remember (probably because it occurs so frequently that I tune it out of my memories). I hesitated a bit before wearing this outfit because of the bruises on my leg. Literally, as I was leaving my apartment to take these pictures, I bumped my knee on the edge of my bed frame and it started to swell - the kind of swelling that I know will bruise the next day! My top is actually a dress but the bottom portion of it was so short and tight, not to mention a tad bit see-through. I wore a midi skirt over it and voila, two problems solved in one. Hidden bruises, and covered up bottoms!
I actually want to talk about this dress for a minute. I am 5'3 so I like to shop the petite section of most stores because lengthwise, it fits better. I would recommend shopping the regular section at Boohoo. This dress happens to be petite-sized and it could not be shorter! I got another dress from their regular-sized section and I found that to work much better for me. I am keeping the dress because I really like the top section and I like wearing it with a skirt over it (it's like wearing a slip). Just a little shopping note.
Thanks for reading!
