There’s something so amusing and liberating about wearing a maxi dress. It’s more conservative than a simple short dress, hardly showing any legs yet elongating the overall figure, making it look refined. They can be worn on any occasion, notably when formalized during a fancy event, but the most enjoyable moment to wear them would have to be during the day, completely dressed down. It adds vivacity and variation to everyday looks, especially those in which one thinks they have ‘nothing to wear’ – let’s face it, we’ve all been through that. So, why not wear a maxi dress?
Everyone has that one go to outfit that’s simple and easy-going; something to slip on when you’re running late in the morning or have that syndrome of ‘I have nothing to wear so I’ll just wear the standard’. These kind of outfits sometimes tend to be the best and most classic as they define your look and style. It doesn’t have to be much – a simple white t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers could do it. Personally, I like to switch it up when it comes to these relaxed ensembles just for a bit of versatility.
Personally, walking aimlessly (wherever that may be) is the best way to get your inspiration flowing and finding a certain kind of freedom that you don’t get when you have a set destination. It’s a liberating thing that you should take advantage of. It’s all about not carrying a map and not worrying where you might end up, it’s going down streets that you’ve never noticed before, it’s about enjoying every detail that you don’t usually perceive.
There’s nothing more charming than eating a wonderful meal with people you love and taking a stroll after – especially when you’re in Paris and you have the Seine right at your feet. In any case, this is how I felt on a cold January afternoon when I was back home for winter break. The polluted Parisian sky gave off a particular light that makes one feel lighthearted, blissful, and simply in good spirits. Even better, there were hardly any people around, which made the experience a lot more delightful.
Truthfully, I don’t like winter. It’s not that I don’t like it, but I don’t enjoy it. There are thing that I do like about it – like wearing big comfortable cashmere sweaters and drinking cocoa – but that’s mainly it. Occasionally, the feel of the bitter cold wind against my skin feels nice and refreshing, but I definitely prefer the feel of warm wind. The main issue for me is trying to dress appropriately for winter; I’m not a big fan of layering so it makes dressing stylishly slightly difficult.
