dress: stylestalker | heels: saint laurent

I typically shy away from the skater skirt silhouette because I find it to be cute and sweet, which are very wonderful traits when not pertaining to my wardrobe. That being said, you would think that a dress with a skater skirt and flowers on it would not be included amongst all my pencils skirts, slits, and minis. But there's black. And mesh. And strapless. And off-the-shoulder.  Then topped off with a pair of exaggerated mary janes and a vampy lip...more than enough dark and twisty details to temper the sweetness.

Maxi Dress: Forever 21 

 Maxi dresses are easy dressing in the summer, which means i like to slowly amass a comfy collection.  this dress was another score from my guilty pleasure - forever21.  main tip when shopping forever21?  checking the material. as long as it's not polyester you're good to go.  this dress is 100% rayon making it more breathable, a must in a Houston summer.
