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!

Seeing Stars

Richmond is finally starting to bloom! Yay! You all know that I love to wear florals year-round, but over the past few months I’ve been super into stars & moons. Feeling those celestial vibes. When I found this tulle star number (which is actually a dress!) for $30, I just couldn’t wait to wear it. Originally this dress was floor length, but the amazing thing about tulle is that it’s so easy to cut & customize it just for you & your body. I decided I wanted more of a tea length style so I could get the maximum wear out of it. Obsessed with how it turned out.

Another way I’m wearing these celestial stars & moons is in earring form. The pair I’m wearing here are asymmetrical with one moon & one star. You might remember me mentioning them in my touch of sparkle post. They are just stunning & a great deal at under $15.

This Fun Look

When planning this post, I originally thought I wanted to do more of a fancy, glam look, but decided to go a different route. I find this look quite casual, care-free, & really fun to wear. My wrap top (similar here) was past down by a friend & is in a totally unexpected color for me, paired with a fun pale blue heel, blue shades, a patterned headband, & a bold lip. Of course, my favorite light wash denim jacket makes the whole look a bit more spring-y. I couldn’t help but smile in this fun outfit under this lovely blooming tree with the sun shining on my face.

End Of Winter Boost

I wanted to take a minute to share a bit of encouragement with you. Each & every one of us are experiencing different seasons of life. Just like the winter we are in is coming to a close, so will each season of life we face. If you are in a trying season right now, be encouraged & know that this “winter” won’t last forever. A new season is right around the corner, so don’t lose hope. Keep your head up, wear something fun to lift your spirits, & keep on keeping on.

If you are in a joyful season, soak it up! Take a second to capture that moment in time & be grateful for the season you’re in. Whatever season of life you’re facing right now, be bold & courageous. Don’t let what’s happening around you crush your confidence or squash your dreams. You are fierce, beautiful, & your future is limitless. So live that way & why not dress that way too, & encourage those around you to do the same!

Cheers to the end of winter!

Post-Christmas Winter Styling

Hello lovelies, & welcome to 2019! Up until now, my winter wardrobe has been centered around the holidays & being very festive. Now, it’s still so cold outside, but I’m ready to move on from my holiday looks to a more feminine winter wardrobe for everyday wear. Even though it’s cold, I still prefer to wear dresses on most days, so my knee high boots are getting quite a lot of wear for the extra warmth. Faux fur is also a must for my stylish winter wardrobe. It’s the perfect way to be cozy & chic at the same time. While I do love these styling elements, my favorite rule for layering & choosing my ensemble this winter is to stick to 2 colors only.

The 2 Color Rule

This outfit features shades of pink & brown. Sticking to two colors or shades of those two colors is a classic & easy way to put together a great & stylish winter look. Remember to think about your shoes & accessories when applying this rule. Scarves, hats, sunglasses, earrings, gloves, etc. The possibilities are endless! Get creative with the colors you want to mix. Combos I’m loving include black & navy, pink & purple, blue & white, & mint & blush. This rule is perfect for trying out new color combinations. I have a whole board on my Pinterest to which I pin all of my color mixing inspiration to. Follow me on Pinterest here.

Stepping Out

Typically, the items in my wardrobe tend to have the dreamy warm tones that I love so much, but I saw this dress & instantly felt inspired to create a lovely cool toned look. Maybe it’s the cooler weather, or the jacquard floral print, but either way, I couldn’t resist these cool toned vibes. In the moment when I was creating this outfit, I felt very out of my comfort zone. Looking back now though, I’m not sure why, because seeing these photos makes this look very much like me. This realization was further confirmation of my motto that if you’re questioning it…just wear it. Be fearless with your fashion!

Pop Of Warmth

Even though as we’ve discussed this look is very cool toned, I chose to mix it up & pair it with a very warm toned lip. This bright orange lipstick is one of my very favorites & I love how it looks with this outfit. It’s quite unexpected, but is a great pop of color in contrast with the blues of my look. A shade like this is great to have in your collection. It gives such a different look & feel to a typical red or pink lip.

Unexpected Shoes

So many different pairs of shoes would look just stunning with this look, but I decided to do a little bit of print mixing. Ginghams & florals play so well together, & since they were in the same color family, it was a perfect match. I love what a pop of print on your shoes does to an outfit. It’s that bit of extra detail that totally elevates your look.
