The beginning. The end.
Think for a second about how you used to dress when you first started school or work. Way better than how you are dressing currently, right? We all go through that bleh period between the beginning and the end when we get used to the normalcy of our occupation and begin to fade into the background. I for one go through this with anything and everything from school to work. Not that I give up on styling myself every morning, I simply get lazy and start *gasp* re-wearing outfits. But at the other end of the spectrum, I get back to my full-effort dressing towards the end of any experience. I usually have millions of outfits filed away in my mind, but only want to bring them out for the perfect experience. Of course this experience never rolls around, so the outfits just stay locked up in my mind. But towards the end of school I find myself with too many stunning outfit options, trying to fit every outfit from that filing cabinet into my last week of school. Here is an example of one of those outfits.
I have had this particular outfit under lock and key for a couple of months, waiting for the perfect weather and peers to share it with. I finally decided to bring it out for the last day of my internship. (I was lucky enough to have an internship where I could be incredibly creative with my outfits and practically wear anything). I love how there isn’t much skin showing, but the outfit still manages to be incredibly alluring. First of, I haven’t worn this top since my 18th birthday. If I wear a garment for something like a birthday, there is usually some kind of strong memory attached to it, so I take a pretty big gap between uses. But I just love the idea of a long sleeve top with a midi skirt, there is something incredibly sexy about it. The facet that makes this outfit Angelina worthy is the cropped top and the cut out, not to mention the body-con fit. I stuck to a simple color palette and one piece of jewelry to keep things minimalistic and true to my new clean style.
