Vintage Midi & Mint Bandeau

Friday, July 6, 2012

Today I decided to mix two really popular trends: Bandeau Bras and Mid-length skirts, aka  "midis" I didn't make up that dumb name so don't blame me :D First off let me tell you how incredibly uncomfortable I was wearing just my bra top outside. It felt like one of those crazy dreams where you show up to work naked. I have seen so many girls pull off this trend so I was determined to face my fears and wear it with confidence.  Turns out, no one even noticed my insecurities and I even got complimented on my ensemble... mission accomplished ;)

Good for you for wearing the bandeau with the skirt! I don't think I could do it, but it looks so cute!

Yay for confidence!! You look amazing girl. And I am slightly jealous that you can wear bandeaus. My boobs are too big now post-baby to wear just a bandeau. :( Ahh...the good old days of being just a B cup. Love that skirt too!! "Midis" are my fave! <3

You look absolutly lovely, but I can totally understand how you felt about wearing this outfit at first. I am glad you made it out of your comfort zone though, because this is a great outfit for summer and totally appropriate! :)

I think it works because you aren't showing off too much skin because of the midi (sounds better than maxi, right?). I love the green in the skirt being pulled out in the top!

Very comfortable. I love mine! I would definitely recommend it to friends. The removable cups make cleaning it a breeze. It's breathable and soft. All around a good quality bra. I would recommended to purchase bra at
