A great way to wear your spring & summer dresses while it’s still a bit chilly out is by layering fun, feminine blouses underneath. This maxi dress features the purple color I can’t get enough of this season. It’s everywhere & honestly all I want to wear ATM. I has so much fun putting this look together with the mixing prints, textures, & bright colors. Little details I love include the watercolor blush (inspired by this video), & my gold hoops.

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!

One Dress, Four Seasons

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!

Layering is no stranger to fall fashion, but seeing as though I’m currently paying off a wedding, I’m trying to be more creative with items I already have in my wardrobe instead of buying new things. One day recently, my creativity was instantly sparked with this idea of layering dresses. I immediately rummaged through my closets & started layering literally all of my dresses together in different combinations until I found at least 6 completely new outfits all centered around layering my dresses. It’s my new obsession.

The outfit featured in this post consists of a pink satin H&M midi dress with a floral midi Zara wrap dress over top. The way that this wrap dress was designed works so well for this look because the front of the wrap dress comes together with small buttons on each side. Once unbuttoned, it basically acts as a gorgeous kimono that adds some major pizzazz to this look.

Other looks I’ve found in my wardrobe include:

An embroidered balloon sleeved dress under a sleeveless turtleneck midi dress. (seen here)

&

A long sleeved floral dress with tie sleeves & a high neck, underneath my classic navy sleeveless velvet dress. (wardrobe staple! seen here)

&

A fall toned (emerald in my case) long sleeved, high neck mini dress under a neutral toned button front, sleeveless dress. (seen here)

The Spring Trench Coat

Best Posts 2017

Hello Everyone!

I’ve been looking through my pictures from New York, & found one common thread throughout…my trench coat. It has been unusually chilly in the City this month, and I definitely underestimated the chill factor while packing & planning my outfits. Luckily, I packed this gem! My trench coat literally saved me on my trip. I figured it deserved an appreciation post.

The beauty of a trench coat is that not only does it provide warmth, but it’s quite lightweight making it easy to just throw on. It’s the perfect coat to travel with because once the sun does finally decide to show up, it’s not a hassle to carry around. I also love the statement it makes. It completes any outfit, while giving the effect of confidence & being quite put together. Major quintessential New York woman vibes.

While I was in the City, I wore it unbuttoned most of the time (as you can see in the photos). It wore beautifully as a layering piece & looks amazing when caught in the wind.
