Day to Night Dress Series: Fun and Flirty Edition


Last week was absolutely crazy for me, but I’m happy to be back at it this Monday morning with a new Day to Night Dress episode.  This fun fit & flare is from GAP, and just one of their many dresses that I absolutely adore.  Every year when spring rolls around I always check out the selection of dresses at GAP.  With their fun colors and flattering silhouettes; they make up some of my favorite wardrobe staples.

Since I don’t have to follow a strict dress code during the day, I love adding bright and bold turquoise accessories to contrast with the fiery red dress.  For those of you that may need a bit more professional look, a blazer and some closed toe heels would be a great conservative touch.

This dress also makes for a really fun going out outfit.  I added my new Bauble Bar bib and the necessary crossbody bag for a fun night out at Lolita Cocina– a must visit for anyone planning on visiting Boston this summer!
