I hope everyone has been having a great week! The rain has been falling steadily here, but today started with a glimmer of sunshine through my window and it is amazing how much my mood has improved. As I recall sunnier days, I am taken back to this photo shoot from Rosemary Beach…..I am always looking for a fun flirty dress, and when I came across this one it was instant love! The black background with the cream embroidery is the perfect balance of delicate and flirty, and the ruffles across the bodice complement the fun, flirty feel. The dress also comes in a mint green which is gorgeous!
Given all of the embroidery and ruffles on this dress (which deserve to be the center of attention), I added no accessories other than my usual daily jewelry, black block heels (totally on trend) and a black-detailed straw bag. As you know, I love an item of clothing that can do double duty – I have also styled this dress as a fun top, adding a long black skirt and a wide black belt on bottom – no one was the wiser! The dress became two separate pieces of clothing, which makes it a great option for vacation packing….
I have also styled with dress with black ballet flats and a chic black cross-body bag for easy day-to-day errands after school drop-off.
I hope that gives you some good ideas for multiple stylings for the dress!
It has been a long week – a case of strep is in the house! It has moved from my little one and is now centered on my daughter and Mr. Wonderful. It is only a matter of time before my oldest and I succumb. So I have to keep my post short and sweet today due to sleep deprivation. I wore this out last night for a quick date night dinner to Uchi (I am still silly in love with that place). I came across this T-shirt at Target and love the cheeky frog on it. The vibrant colors on the gray background make it the perfect mix of sober yet fun. I added my flares (also styled here in NYC) and I was ready to roll (long live the flares).
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! I am currently writing from a hotel room because I lost power early Sunday morning, and with current temperatures in the mid-90’s in Houston, my house is oppressively humid and sleep would have been decidedly unpleasant. So, a quick getaway to a local hotel was just what I needed to get a good night’s sleep!
I want to share some pictures from Aspen from a few weeks ago – I am definitely missing that cool lack of humidity tonight! This is an outfit that I wore when we went to see BB King live in a small local venue – it was such a treat and he was amazing!
