Last Wednesday I had a crafting night with a good friend of mine from my Colorado childhood. Kristen and I go way back. She's been in Utah since we graduated CHS in 01. Kristen comes from a large LDS family with a really awesome Mormon heritage, actually (which she has never said, only I have seen pictures of her ancestors as a founding family in our town hall - her family have been faithful Mormons for a long time. Pretty neat heritage).
Kristen is also a fashionista. Her style is very classic and cute with a strong edge of creativity! I'm not sure I've ever seen her sporting this fashion, but ever since the temps got above freezing, i have found myself exploring this world of modesty and comfort. And I feel okay sharing this because when I mentioned it to her on Wednesday she cracked up and verified my observation.
I'm not sure what the fashion world would say about this, but out here in Utah, this trend is very cute and acceptable and catching on to non-Mormons like me!
Wearing a shirt under or over the strapless and spaghetti-strap tops
I even wore a spaghetti strap shirt over a long sleeve t-shirt during the winter and it made me feel like my wardrobe was doubled - summer shirts are no longer only for the summer!
(not me and no photo credits on this post - sorry)
Don't die, but I have definitely worn a white t-shirt under a strapless dress. I have two dresses that are a bit too big for me and they are so cute and I don't wear them because they're a little too immodest since they don't hug me quite close enough. I love wearing a t-shirt under these strapless dresses. It's great not to be tugging on them all the time, and worrying that they're not where they should be.
Kristen made sure to let me know that these items can still be worn very classy with cardigans over them (Janelle, aren't you glad I included this - I'm sure it's what you have been thinking this whole time!). Ha! That does sound much more classy, but I do really like the t-shirt idea. It's casual and comfy!
What do you think?
