Those Capris Again

Asian-inspired satin dress, Forever 21 (via swap). Capris, Steve & Barry’s. Slingbacks, Delicious. Beaded necklace, Xhilaration.

Stand by to see me pair these capris with every short dress in my closet before the summer ends. I freaking LOVE them.


Speaking of short dresses, I’ve found this frock a little challenging for work wear because of the short hemline. I’ve felt most comfortable wearing it over pants or leggings. Tights still left me feeling a little exposed. Actually, the girl who swapped it to me referred to the garment as a shirt! She must be much taller than I.

It's definitely cutest with the white capris, which I love so much more than cropped leggings. I'm totally going to steal this idea from you!

So cute with the white capris - I also like the slim jeans with turtleneck look (one I've done myself).

I see a kitty in the picture!

Funny, I prefer it with the tights or footless leggings and kickin' shoes. I really like the green shoes with it. I also prefer when you wear the camisole with this rather than the turtleneck, it's too covered up...

Personally, I"m not feeling it with the white capris, maybe if it had a white camisole...but I'm totally digging the shoes.

I actually really like it with the jeans, but different shoes. Green is just a little too bright, maybe something blue. It also looks super cute with the tights. Also, maybe with a pair of black boots.
