The school semester is ending and I decided to treat myself to some retail therapy. I’ve been wanting to get on the slip dress trend but I could never find one that fit me properly. Most of the slip dresses fit me fine at the top but it’s too straight and hugs my hips weirdly.
Aerie is my go-to bra store and I decided to pop in and see what new products they had. Little did I know that I would find the perfect slip dress (but really, it’s a nightgown and it’s 40% off…). What I love about this satin slip nightie is that it’s a-line, which means that it’s flowy and won’t hug my hips awkwardly. The lace detailing at the neckline is also super beautiful and the neutral grey goes with any colour undershirt.
Since it’s chilly out, I decided to pair it with the super comfy Deimos Turtleneck from Titika. A side note about this turtleneck is that it has cute slits on the side, so it looks great with high waisted pants! I finally got to wear these knee-high boots that I got last year at a Nordstrom warehouse sale (similar – 55% off). I find that it made the look so much more put together and less I’m wearing a nightgown in public.
I’m obsessed with this look and all of the pictures that Emily took of me. We went to Baddies for coffee before shooting and I had one of the best avocado toasts that I’ve ever tasted. Would recommend 100% even though it’s a little out West; you’ll get some good Insta shots!
I decided to name this post ‘You Beauty’ for two reasons. First, it’s written on the wall in Baddies. Second, I found it fitting for a post mentioning Aerie since their brand focuses on making girls love their own bodies. Self-love is so important and everyone struggles with it. I get so many people telling me that I have the perfect body and that I’m beautiful, but I also struggle with loving my body every single day. So the title is a little reminder that YOU are a beauty.
