Borrowing from the Boys

Denim Jacket Slip Dress.jpg

December dressing means time to mix festive elements with cozy pieces. You can start to layer creatively and mix and match for the most stylish results. You guys know my style ranges from girly glam to slightly edgy, so I love playing with combining unexpected elements when getting dressed.

When I saw this stunning slip dress I had to immediately add to cart! I nabbed it in Anthropologie's big sale, and of course it sold out! The fabric is so chic, and it's a nice heavy weight, not too delicate or flimsy. It def looks more like a dress than lingerie which is exactly what you want in a slip dress. It does run a little big, but I kind of like the loose fit. Since it's such a slinky, sexy fabric, I like the effect of the extra fabric so it's not too tight. 

But of course I had to give it a little edge, so I stole my boyfriend's classic Levi's trucker coat! It's the perfect, oversized fit and the medium wash denim instantly ups the cool factor.

I've worn the coat a few times and am starting to get obsessed. I don't think it's heavy enough for the dead of winter, but for chilly (not freezing) days it's pretty perfect. I love how I styled it with a cocktail dress, but have also worn it with jeans and a sweater. He kinda wants the jacket back, but um, idk yet!

And let me know what you think of these pics since I shot them all myself! I've been playing with self-portraits and I think these turned out pretty good.
