Tried going braless in public for the first time. It seems like everyone is doing it, and I always thought that I couldn’t because my chest is on the bigger side for my frame. But I think it ended up looking okay, and it was kind of freeing.

For this post I focused on how to wear a sundress both during the day, and then out at night. Dresses are by far the easiest item of clothing for transitional wear. Especially one like this that’s quite simple. For the daytime look I wore a khaki jacket and metallic oxfords, with a cross-body bag. I have found that for me and many others, teal is an extremely flattering color. It brings out the tanner tones in your skin, and the lightness in people’s eyes.
If you’re like me, when you wear a bun you’re probably going to have to leave it in all day unless your hair is that nice straight kind that doesn’t get messed up by elastics. So I kept my hair the same in this bun for both looks. I also wore almost no makeup except for some BB Cream, powder, and mascara.

For the night look I added a pair of heels and a blazer, but I stuck to nudes so they wouldn’t add a lot of busyness to the look. Then I added a red clutch as an accent to brighten it up. I added a little bit of red gloss (which you can’t really see because it was so sunny) just to add some more color to my face.
I like to play around with little patterns and such so I cuffed my jacket sleeves so a pinstripe showed, and brought out the light colors in the snakeskin pattern on the shoes. Minimal jewelry kept the outfit from looking too busy, my sole noticeable accessory was my staple Anne Klein watch.
Went to PPG and Station Square today, and all I have to say about it is that THERE ARE SO MANY RESTAURANTS I WANT TO TRY. Accepting recommendations.
