Fall Florals

IMG_3714 IMG_3723

Everyone loves a good fashion twist, even if it’s something as easy as taking a floral dress and finding a way to add an edge to it.  By the time September rolls around, most people are tired of the light and bright colors of summer and are ready to add some darker hues to their palette.  But with Indian Summers, it’s not quite time to start breaking out jeans and a sweater.  The perfect solution to this predicament is pick out dresses in darker colors, and/or add in some more fall appropriate accessories, like these black leather peep toe booties or this perfect leather tote.  This beautiful Maggy London dress would be perfect for anything from a casual business environment to a fall wedding with a swap of accessories!

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.
