WHAT I WORE – LBD x CHECK SHIRT

I hope that someday you find someone that gives you butterflies the moment you meet them. And that the first time you touch, it feels like electricity is running through your body.

I hope that when you’re with them, you never want to leave.

I hope you are the first and last thing they think about every day.

I hope you play it cool in front of people, but can’t keep your hands off each other in private.

I hope that when you give them your heart, they don’t break it.

I hope that the things they tell you aren’t just things you want to hear, but things they want to say.

I hope that you fit in their arms better than the last piece of a puzzle, and that you always feel safe when they hold you.

I hope that when you fight, you fight hard, but that when you love, you love harder.

I hope that once you find them, you can’t picture your life without them.

I hope that they take your breath away.

I hope that, together, you create happiness. I hope that with them, you’re not afraid of the future, but excited for it.

I hope that, every day, they tell you how much they love you.

I hope that when you find them, you realize it before it’s too late.

I hope that you take them and love them and never let them go.

I hope you find it.

This has to be the easiest outfit to pull off. Think of those days when you do not have time or energy to actually plan an outfit. Grab your most comfortable little black tank dress, check shirt & lace up heels and you’re ready to hit the road! I added my hoop earrings to give it a little more edge and of cause my check bracelet and gold wristwatch to complete the look.

Obviously i was lacking poses and the sun was not helping matters so i was just walking around lol <–Photo tip. Thanks to my forehead for shinning bright like a diamond all through. My photographer said i have different faces oo & others have said so too, what do you think?

Other ways to style your Check Shirt

  • Buttons opened, neatly rolled up sleeves and sneakers.
  • Buttons opened, rolled down sleeves and add a tiny belt at the waist.
  • Wrap & tuck the shirt on top your dress.

    I think I found that someone. We’ve been together for over two years now, with turmoil and tumble and hurt. But we get through, loving each other more and holding tighter. It’s wonderful feeling to love and be loved back.

    You look absolutely beautiful, the check shirt is perfect paired with the LBD. Though, I think your hoops steal the show! Woah!

    Lol. You may not get butterflies the very first time though! Sometimes, Love grows and then the butterflies come with it. But every other thing. Yep!
    I actually want to get this particular kind of check shirt…. It’s such a wardrobe basic, and of course you pulled it off.
