The Dress

Chicwish kindly gifted me this gorgeous cream embroidered dress with tie sleeves that I was so excited to style this summer. As I began playing around with it in my wardrobe, I realized that this dress can actually be worn in EVERY season! One dress to wear in all four seasons. Talk about versatility & definitely getting your money’s worth. See how I’ve styled this classic dress uniquely for each season of the the year.


Spring

One Dress, Four Seasons

My classic trench coat is my go-to jacket to wear especially in the spring. It’s a great length, light-weight, & keeps me warm in the crisp spring air. For shoes, I went with a patent ballet flat. This pair is under $15 & is great to wear even on rainy days. What is spring without a few floral accessories? A pair of floral earrings & a floral print bag really brighten up this look. Lastly, a colorful pastel yellow pair of sunnies to welcome some warmer weather.

Summer

One Dress, Four Seasons

My designer dupe espadrilles are my favorite summer shoe, so of course I had to pair them with this dress. Warm tones have been my favorite to wear this summer like these orange cat eye sunglasses, this brown woven belt, & the floral scarf tied in a bow on my bag. To tie in with the bow on my bag & the tie sleeves, & paired this look with a simple pair of gold bow studs for an effortless look. What is summer without a great basket bag, am I right? It’s been a favorite of mine & you would not believe how affordable it is!

Fall

One Dress, Four Seasons

I wanted to play with a bit of layering for this fall look & decided to choose one of my favorite colors for fall to do so: camel. This camel turtleneck is so soft & is a great layering piece to add warmth to your look. Not to mention it matches my camel beret perfectly. I love the way this blush cardigan looks with the cream dress & the camel accents. It gives the whole look that cozy vibe. For earrings I went with these pearl earrings to tie in with the cream dress. Lastly, I paired these nude suede ballet flats & a dark toned bag for some contrast.

One Dress, Four Seasons

Winter

One Dress, Four Seasons

Yep, this dress even works in winter! I threw this oversized burgundy roll neck sweater over my lovely cream dress & paired it with a few other burgundy accessories. Berets really do add so much warmth in the fall & winter months which is why I have so many colors to wear almost everyday! I wanted to add my check coat to add a bit of structure to the look & tie in with my black box bag that’s one of my winter staples. If you’re worried about being cold in the winter in just a dress, remember you can always add boots, tights, or even fleece leggings underneath!

How I Curate My Everyday Looks

How I Curate My Everyday Looks

Everyday Ritual

Everyday, each & every one of us performs the ritual of choosing & putting on clothes for the day. How refreshing it is to start each new day with clean clothes that speak for us & provide the first impression of our persona to the world. I’m in introvert by nature, so I love creating outfits that start conversations for me. Each day I curate outfits that tell the world around me a little bit about me before a word leaves my mouth. I want my outfits to show that I’m kind, approachable, feminine, classy, put together, a little bit playful, & always garden party ready. Knowing what I want my clothes to say about me, means I’m ready to curate my look for the day.

How I Curate My Everyday Looks

Let’s Start At The Very Beginning…

…a very good place to start!:) Since I know what I want my clothes to say for me, now I choose my color palette. Like I mentioned in my 6 Steps To Spring Style post, I love choosing my daily color palette by what I’m most inspired by in nature at the moment. Right now I’m loving the grass turning green again, the bright blue sky, & fresh white blooms.

Now it’s time to piece together the puzzle. I love the feminine hourglass shape look, so wearing things that aren’t too fitted around my shoulders & full skirts on my legs combined with a fitted, high-waisted waistline creates that timeless silhouette. My blue floral earrings go with the florals on my top & the navy color of my skirt bringing the whole look together.

Making It My Own

It’s important to me that I add my own personal flair to my everyday looks. For instance, I wrapped a silk scarf around the handle of my basket bag. These little details show the thought & care put into each outfit. I also love throwing in a pop of either print or color that may seem unexpected. My colorful floral embroidered mules do just that, without straying too far from the theme & vibe of the look.

Words cannot even express how utterly obsessed with this dress I am. I swear Julia created the Jennifer dress just for me! This dreamy wrap dress totally makes me feel like a princess, which is exactly why I chose to wear it to my rehearsal dinner.

The wrap style of the Jennifer dress gives the most flattering silhouette. Balloon sleeves are also my absolute favorite thing to wear at the moment. They make a look so billowy & whimsical & I just love it. 

The real reason this dress is so special though is because of the material it’s made of. It consists of the most dreamy, buttery silk I’ve ever felt. This makes it amazing to touch & even more amazing to wear! 

One last reason why I’m obsessed with this dress is how it moves. It’s like a literal piece of art the way it flutters in the wind. This dress gets a gold star for twirl factor, that’s for sure.

I paired this dream of a dress with one of my favorite pairs of statement earrings. If you don’t already know by now, I have a thing for statement earrings & particularly floral ones. These tiered floral earrings are some of my favorites at the moment & are actually on sale for under $10!

As far as shoes, so many different kinds would look lovely with this dress. I chose to let the dress shine & paired it with my go-to nude heels. I love a good block heel because they are so easy to walk in. Sadly, the exact ones I am wearing are sold out but this pair looks almost identical & is only $40.

On our first full day in Italy, we decided to venture over to Capri. We woke up early to catch a ferry over from Napoli (see about our stay in Naples here), which was filled with a few hundred people. The ferry ride was just under an hour, & our view out the window was incredible. This was my first time out in the Mediterranean Sea, & boy was it just breath-taking!

Once we made it to the lovely island of Capri, we started exploring. Of course, knowing us, we decided to walk up a small but stunning alleyway that led up the mountain instead of following the crowds of people. Let me tell you, there were a LOT of stairs, but seeing all of the cute homes & overgrown trees & bushes was so worth it. 

One tip I will give to anyone wanting to visit Capri: go early! There were barely any people when we got there compared to the middle of the day. See the best sights before the crowds come!

After climbing up the stairs for about 45 minutes, we found the most idyllic spot for lunch called Al Caprí. The view from our climb was incredible & the food was some of the best we had on our trip. I ordered the gnocchi, & Ben had a pizza. We also had our first taste of the iconic limoncello, which I will say is quite strong, but great for sipping slowly.

After our delicious meal, we decided to take the funiculare down the mountain. (You can take it up as well, but if you can, the walk is totally worth it!) Then it was time for our boat tour. Neither Ben nor I particularly care for tours, we like to venture on our own, but I will say that this tour (Laser Capri) was really wonderful. It was cool to ride a boat all the way around this amazing island. The rocks & caves & cliffs were literally jaw-dropping. I had never seen anything like this in real life before.

A fun fact about Italian culture: The reason why I don’t have more photos of our boat tour is because I was kind of in a bad mood due to getting my feelings hurt by the others on our tour. Part of being an Italian (or so we found) was pushing your way through to get yours regardless of lines or others around you. They weren’t angry, or being rude, at least in their minds, but it just did not sit well with me. But don’t worry, we quickly learned from them & started following their lead towards the end of our trip.

Yep, you heard that right! Ben & I rented our own boat to ride around the island just the two of us. He drove while I sat in the sun & enjoyed the ride.

Well kind of…

The waters happened to be quite choppy that day, which made me feel not so well. We decided to find a spot to anchor, because I thought just getting off the boat & swimming a bit would make it go away. So we did, & we swam for a bit & took turns jumping off the boat which was so much fun. Also a bit challenging with the waves, though. 

We finished our two hours on the water & headed back to shore.

Once back on land, I found a shady spot to sit down for a bit. After my brain wrapped around the fact that I wasn’t on the water anymore, we walked right next door to a little bar right on the water. This spot was a prime people watching spot. We sat here for the next hour or two just watching the locals vs. the tourists. The real cure for my seasickness, I’m sure, was the French fries & gelato with plenty of water followed by a limoncello. 🙂

Sometimes, the best moments shared with someone are not the big exciting spectacle of moments, but those small moments sitting by the water just talking & soaking in a day of incredible experiences together. We had a magical time together in the beautiful Capri, but the best part was that we were together. Through it all. Together. Hey, in (sea)sickness & in health, right?!

We took the ferry back to Napoli & Ben fell asleep while I edited photos. It was a very long day full of so many firsts & new experiences. I honestly feel like I grew a lot that day & Ben & I grew as it was our first day on vacation just the two of us. We work so well together & he is so good for me. Clearing any bits of anxiety in me with just a glance. Feeling very thankful I get to keep him as my husband forever.

After Capri, we spent a day & a half in Napoli before heading to Positano! Post on that coming soon!
