I love the look of long, flowing dresses, but at 5-foot-1, I never could quite pull off a maxi. So when I found this amazing asymmetrical midi dress from Lord & Taylor, I had to pounce on it. (You may remember a veryyyy similar dress from an epic Instagram campaign in 2015). But outside of vacations and summertime beach trips, I was never quite sure of how to style it until recently.
I snagged some booties from Just Fab (I'm constantly walking through casual shoes because I (shocker) walk so much in NYC), and thought because of the dip on each side, I might be able to pull them off with the midi dress without looking too "cut-off" at the ankle. I ~think~ my theory was correct.
Since I work in a fairly casual environment, I tossed on a tan belt, denim jacket from Gap, patterned mini backpack and a coffee and transformed it into an ideal easy Monday morning outfit. Shop the look below:
