Simply Stylist | Do What You Love, Part 2

Simply Stylist

“She knows who she is.”

Part two of Simply Stylist! Read Part 1 here.

The above quote is the best description of someone’s Instagram account I have ever heard. Joey Maalouf’s description of Jacey Duprie, to be specific. And they make my favorite takeaway from the entire conference: just be you! I like to think I do that anyway but it was nice to have that reminder.

As promised, outfit details from the day below. I went with this stripe pleated midi skirt from t+j designs paired with, get this, a dress. Yep, that top is a dress! I couldn’t figure out the right top to wear with the skirt- I wanted to do a graphic T but that felt too casual. I waffled for a good ling while before finally arriving at using the top from the dress and just tucking the rest into the skirt. The result? One of my favorite looks in my closet right now!

    What is it about Topshop flats that makes them so perfect for dressy occasions but SO much more comfortable than heels? These were perfect for the marathon-length conference! And nothing beats that skirt!

      I’ve no idea but I absolutely love it. They’re my first pair of Topshop shoes and I’m DEFINITELY going back. I so loved not having super sore feet by the end of the day.

    […] shoes are the ones I wore to Simply Stylist, as featured in this post but I didn’t really elaborate on them. These are from Topshop and were not the shoes I went out […]
