I bought the maroon version of this dress while on my honeymoon in London this summer at Selfridge’s. I was so obsessed with the cut of it that I bought it in black immediately once we got home. It is no secret that I am a sucker for anything black and minimal and this dress speaks fluently in both. I was able to bust it out this season for a wedding this past weekend. I received numerous compliments on it, which solidified my love for it. Since it is such a neutral piece, I wanted to bring in some color to it through my shoes and earrings. These earrings are my absolute favorite accessory right now and it’s pretty obvious why. They are stunning and super fun to wear.
P.S. is it bad that I am contemplating buying this dress in blush?
During the summer, a good t-shirt dress is my trusty side kick. I have this exact dress in three colors, ridiculous, I know. However, in my defense, ASOS makes one hell of a tee dress. Once I bought one, I had to go back for more. They are just so easy to throw on and be on your way, which I live for. When it comes to dressing in the summer heat, I love pieces that are loose, light, and easy to transfer from day to night. Throwing a denim jacket and converse on with it just add that little bit of edge to a pretty feminine item. I love mixing masculine and delicate together, which you could probably tell by now.
I am also addicted to Ray-Ban Aviators. I plead guilty to owning more than just a few a pairs. This pair is by far my favorite for the summer time. In every picture it looks like I am looking out to a beach, which sadly I am not. They are great for every face shape and come in countless colors!
I am such a sucker for anything flowy and from ASOS. I have always been drawn to pieces that are easy to just throw on and go. When I came across this cardigan, I knew that I had to have it. The stripes also add a fun touch to a pretty basic item. I decided to pair it with my absolute favorite pair of flared jeans and platform sandals. I loved how it had a very 70s feel to it. Since I am the product of hippie parents, it’s in my blood 🙂 . Plus, literally no one looks bad in flared jeans. They do so much for short, thicker legs and that’s why I love them!
Black & white are a tried and true team that I just can’t seem to quite. I love wearing it different ways to different occasions. For me, it allows me to be comfortable and confident in what I have on. I love bright colors, yet I just do not wear them, like ever. Nothing makes me feel better or more myself than a black pair of distressed denim, white tee, and leather jacket. It gives me that Sandra Dee feel like at the end of Grease wear she is completely transformed just by throwing on an all black outfit. It’s just that little boost that we all need time to time. What do y’all wear that makes you feel super confident!?
T-shirt dresses are a staple in my closet and this season I have been wearing them all the time. It is so easy to transition them to the cold weather with boots and chic coats. I am a huge fan of making my pieces work for many seasons and this dress is one of them. I ordered it from Nordstrom a couple weeks ago and have been chomping at the bit to wear it. This dress is made from sweat shirt material, which made my heart so happy. So not only is it comfy, but it works for fall, winter, and spring. Also, it is easy to transition it from day to night with just a quick change of a few accessories. I can already tell that this dress is going to be on major repeat this season and next!
So, my husband, Dan, has been taking all of my photos for me and it is not without comments and jokes the whole time. For this session, he continued to reference a Seinfeld episode where Kramer purchased a fur coat, apparently it was hilarious.
All jokes aside, this coat makes me so happy. Yes, it may be a tad over the top but who doesn’t need something fun in their closet? Just walking through the park in it made me feel fabulous and fancy free. When paired with black clothing and accessories, it gives the coat a moment to have its day in the sun. Of course, it is completely faux fur, I could never purchase real. This coat is going to be so fun to wear to holiday parties and nights out with the ladies.
