Feeling Anything but Blue

This really is the perfect dress for me. I love clothing that is feminine and what is more girly than ruffles and a bow! Another bonus is the elastic bottom, it majorly helps to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions! The gold zipper and buttons down the front add just the right amount of detailing to the dress. Because the dress has so many elements to it, it really needs little accessorizing. What I chose to do was to slip on a gold bracelet and ring because I wanted to dress it up a little for dinner. I also wore pearl and gold earings that matched the dress perfectly! The thing that I love the most about this dress is how transitional it can be. With fall right around the corner I have been trying to find pieces that can go from summer right into fall, without looking out-of-place. Both the color and style of the dress make it perfect for both seasons! For footwear I just slipped on a pair of simple gold sandals. I can’t wait to bring this dress to school with me!DSC_0970DSC_0991DSC_0997DSC_0992DSC_0995DSC_0986Dress: Solaris | Shoes: Sam Edelman

 

Under the Boardwalk, Down by the Sea…….

The post for today needs as little explanation as it does preparation when getting ready! This is really just the perfect summer dress.  The black and white stripes and the easy strapless maxi dress are details that are the epitome of summer style.

 

I added some simple jewelry and was set for anything the day called for from day to night.  This look belongs in The Dummies Guide to Style, you can’t go wrong.

The Motion of the Ocean

The subject of today’s post is an outfit that just screams summer day with these blue and white shorts that remind me of the deep blue sea. I chose them for, yes, the color and I especially like the side zipper detail for a flat front look and I adore the scalloped hem on these shorts. These details dress up the shorts a bit. I paired them with a sleeveless cotton blouse and finished off the look with this fantastic fringed scarf. Scarves can be awesome in the summer too!! This one is such lightweight cotton. The white color is so crisp and the contrasting navy fringe makes this piece iconic summer in navy and white. I feel dressed up yet relaxed in this outfit that I pulled together from a combination of pieces that I purchased individually because I liked something about each one. They did not become an OOTD until they met in my closet :).

Watering Not Necessary

 

I just love to find a perfect outfit! One that needs little accessorizing, is comfortable, looks great (stating the obvious) and can take you to a variety of places.  A surprise or unique detail in that outfit is a terrific bonus.  This romper by Ark and Co. has all that.  It is so easy to wear, the sleeves make it perfect to wear day in to a cooler evening and it is a flattering cut.  The bonus detail to this outfit is the heavily embroidered bouquet of flowers that cascades from each shoulder. This is such a great thought that makes this so different from a simple solid black romper. The embroidery itself is enough accessorizing if you just need to pull it on and go.  It is not so over powering though, so if you are feeling like throwing on a long necklace or a few bracelets, you will still look great and it will not be too much. I added Again with this piece, I had my choice of shoe style depending on where I was going. I wore a simple pair of Ferragamo sandals. I also carried a House of Harlow bag. It is big enough to fit a phone and lip gloss and a few other necessities. It isis the perfect size! What girl wouldn’t love an outfit that comes with not one, but two bouquets of flowers!!!!

Fun with Fashion

Something you might have learned about me is that I like to have fun. A sense of humor is so important in all aspects of life. Hence, my attraction to the Designers parody of pop culture and sports wear. My first was a grey Homies sweatshirt with gold foil given to me by my mom. I have an almost unhealthy adoration for Hermes, and it could not have been  more perfect. The sweatshirt is designed by  Brian Litchtenberg an LA based designer who gets creative with the logos of many iconic fashion labels. His designs are very popular and worn by the likes of Rhianna and Cara Delevigne. Other brand’s have followed “Brianel’s” (his own personal spoof mocking Chanel) lead in playing the Name Game. This parody apparel can be found in a variety of styles and prices with Lichtenberg’s design at the top. The tops can be paired with almost any bottom. Pants, skirts, shorts, you name it. You will look great and most certainly garner a smile or two from passers-by! In life, we should NEVER take ourselves too seriously and always have fun!
