I hope everyone is having a great week! I want to share some additional pics from SWFW (Fashion Week) in Rosemary last week. These are actually separates that I wore together – red pants and a draped red top with a fun shiny belt to pull it all together. Everyone who approached me all night assumed that it was a dress! When using monochromatic color it is always fun to use some fun textures – fringe, pleats, draped style, etc. to make the outfit visually more interesting. I also added the fun card clutch for a touch of whimsy!

Hope everyone is having a great week! This will be the last of my Dubai and Oman pics – I did a lot of R&R on the trip and took time off from work. It also helped that my phone stopped working overseas. Has anyone had that happen? My iPhone kept saying it needed to be activated – but as soon as I got back to the states it started working. I was beyond frustrated but on a positive note as the days went by I became more in tune with the relaxation element of the trip (Oman helped immensely in that aspect).
Polka dots have such a whimsy to them and the black background with the metallic shimmer made it perfect for a night out on the town. The full skirt added to the flirty feminine feel of the outfit. I played on the polka dot color and added gold accents and a neutral top in the same color family. This cool jacket was a Dubai find from an Italian brand – Pinko. The fit was spot on perfect!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I made it to Dubai and am now in Oman – has there ever been a country as beautiful as this? After the hustle and bustle of Dubai (will share posts soon), the calm serenity of Oman is absolutely intoxicating. Almost every building in downtown Muscat is white, providing a stark and beautiful contrast against the bare, rocky mountains. Then you see the coastline, the sand, and the calm and intensely blue water, all of which have a wonderful calming effect. I will be honest – I definitely could have stayed for much longer and can’t imagine ever growing tired of the natural beauty.
Here is an outfit I wore to dinner. This skirt is perfect for a fun night out – the high low skirt is festive and extremely fun to wear. I love pairing black and blue – with the touches of mixed metals, I felt the outfit was spot-on perfect for the locale and our wonderful traditional Omani dinner.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I am fully relaxed from my quick getaway to Rosemary Beach. I will share a post from Rosemary on Wednesday but I wanted to share this adorable dress that would be universally flattering on any body time. This 60s-mod dress becomes updated with modern details like the leather pockets. It makes me want to put leather pockets on all my dresses!
I hope everyone had a great week! I know I have been raving about the new Banana Republic since Marissa Webb took over design. But every time I go in there I find something that I absolutely love. Case in point – this dress! I love the blush pink color and with the high low ruffles resistance was futile. The feminine and fun shape was loved by all. Who doesn’t want to feel girly? If you want the dress to be a bit longer I would size up in the dress.
I am off to NYC right now – back to my home town! Looking forward to sharing posts from there but you can follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see what I am up to in the Big Apple.

I hope everyone has been having a great week! I have been a bit busy unpacking and repacking for my trip on Saturday. I look forward to sharing beach outfits with you guys over the next few weeks because I am off to Rosemary Beach! Yes, back to my happy place (or aka heaven on earth….)
