On dressing up – the constant dilemma

going out dresses lover the label lace

I feel like I’m having one of those I have nothing to wear moments. Standing in front of my closet shifting the hangers back and forth, yet failing to come up with anything even remotely appropriate. The occasion? A friend’s birthday – although what does one wear to birthday drinks these days? It’s been so long that I’ve almost forgotten, and given the cold weather, I’m almost inclined to continue spending my evening snuggled up in bed with a large cosy sweater.

But, I’m not one to throw in the towel so easily. My experience of Sydney would tell me that one of Lover’s lace dresses would be the most obvious choice; well that or a crop top and midi skirt combo, which if we’re being honest, is far too cold to even consider. So here’s hoping some (not so) dressed up denim with heels will suffice. It is winter after all.

    Haha, vacation got me into a bit of an outfit rut and now I don’t really have much going on so I don’t know what to wear! Although I do have a couple new pieces and more coming (some for a collaboration and one is a new Carven skirt!)

    I remember you once paired a Lover dress (maybe dating back to page sixxx days) with knitwear. Enlighten me? I remember it being beautiful like all the other ways you style your Lover pieces! x

    Just go through all your blog outfits – you look awesome all of the time. I can’t believe that you would really ever have ‘nothing to wear’, maybe just moments (as in seconds) of lacking outfit creativity x

      God you have no idea! I’ve gotten rid of a lot and am shopping less so what I do have is more a wardrobe full of basics. Not a bad thing though!
