With the exception of a brief period in 2004 when I was obsessed with dressing like Lauren Conrad, Lacoste is not really in my wheelhouse.
A Brief Interlude: My boyfriend once convinced me it would be super fun to play tennis together, despite my adamant protests. You see, I am very, very bad at sports that involve hand-eye coordination. Still, off we went to buy rackets and fuzzy green balls.
We played one “game”–if you can even call it that–and my boyfriend just said, “Oh. You weren’t kidding about being really bad at this.”
No, I wasn’t.
What I am good at is liking things that I can’t afford–like Valentino dresses. Which is precisely what the lace collar on this polo dress reminds me of. So while I won’t be hitting any balls in this one (those rackets ended up at Goodwill) I will be wearing it just about everywhere else–dressing it down with sneaks or dressing it up with heels.
Plus, I don’t really care if she’s bored of it all–I really, really love Alexa Chung’s style, and this seems like something she might wear.
