Dressing For The Day

Dresses are definitely what I feel most comfortable in. They give me confidence, make me feel like such a lady, & bring me so much joy to walk, twirl, run, skip, frolic, & jaunt around in. Ok, so maybe I don’t skip on a daily basis, but I could & doing so in a dress is like living out my childhood dreams. If wearing dresses makes me this happy, then doing so should not be reserved for evenings & special occasions. No, dresses should be worn on the daily, exuding all the lady-like confidence & joy.

Let me share with you what I look for when shopping for day dresses, & how I like to style them for an everyday, casual yet sophisticated look.

Choosing Your “No-Fuss” Dress

A good day dress is a “no fuss” dress, in my opinion. One that I won’t have to worry about revealing too much when I lean forward or bend over to pick something up. It’s comfortable, not tight, & makes you smile when wearing it. I love this classic wrap dress from Chicwish for literally all of those reasons. This dress is comfortable to wear. It’s a nice, no-fuss length, & there is even a small button at the top of the wrap to keep from revealing more than you’d like. I love the subtle & sweet blue & yellow floral pattern with the slightly puffy sleeves. Finding a “no-fuss” dress with great design details such as these ensures you’ll wear it with ease over & over again.

Styling Your Day Dress

Styling day dresses looks slightly different depending on the current season, but the same principles apply. For shoes, a classic ballet flat is a great year-round choice. In the fall & winter, you could also pair your day dresses with a pair of knee high boots, loafers, or oxfords. Choose the pair that will be most comfortable for your daily activities while still adding to that feminine, boss babe vibe.

A great bag like this embroidered brown bag I can’t stop wearing, is an ideal bag to have in your collection. It can be worn year-round & has that same “no-fuss” feel as your day dress. There are no zippers that get stuck, contraptions to maneuver, just a simple snap under the buckle for easy opening & closing. It also comes with a gorgeous embroidered crossbody strap for when you need to be hands-free!

Accessorizing your day dress should be minimal & casual, yet strategic & cohesive. Adding one simple hair clip adds a bit of interest to your look while also keeping the hair out of your face. Functional & fashionable! For earrings, I say go as big as you want! I love these pearl drops for a bit of intrigue & design detail while still being very minimal. Pair with your favorite everyday lipstick & a fun pair of sunglasses & your look is complete!

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.

Styling A Cream Sweater

Styling A Cream Sweater

Hello Everyone!

I’ve been taking inventory on my wardrobe recently, & in doing so, I’ve discovered a few things about myself. First off, I love statement pieces. Patterns, details, & varying silhouettes clearly speak to me. Secondly, I’m very proud of the new colors I’ve added to my wardrobe over the past 6 months like green, yellow, & red. Lastly, I own so many cream sweaters. Honestly, I’m not even saying that’s a bad thing. A cream sweater is a great fall/winter staple in my wardrobe.

I want to share with you a few of my favorite cream sweaters in my collection & ways I love to style them.

Styling A Cream Sweater

To go to the pumpkin patch, I chose an old favorite from last season (similar here). I simply combined it with a good old pair of trusty Madewell jeans & a classic fall boot. To spice it up a little bit, I added a simple scarf tied around my neck (one of my favorite things to do these days) & statement crossbody I just got for my birthday.

This simple outfit (the cream sweater & blue jeans) can be easily transformed into a completely new look. Maybe I want to add a vest, or I could switch out the ankle boots for a pair of my favorite over the knee boots. Or I could dress it up a little bit with my blue velvet booties, my new camel coat (last seen here), & a faux fur scarf. The possibilities are endless, even without changing the very core of this outfit.

Another way I love to wear a cream sweater is to pair with LITERALLY any skirt. Honestly, find me a skirt a cream sweater doesn’t go with…there isn’t one. Below are some outfits I adore:

Featured Outfits

A cream sweater with a metallic pleated midi skirt, my leopard heels, & my beloved trench coat.

This cream sweater with a leather mini skirt, a long silk scarf, & my leather loafer mules. (see the look here)

A cream sweater with a patterned, floral mini skirt, my favorite ballerinas (on major sale btw), with a solid colored structured bag.

This cream sweater with a velvet midi skirt, a patterned/check coat, & pair of my favorite heels.

A cream sweater with a tweed mini skirt, a blazer, & a pair of pointed toe flats.

These are just a few ways to pair a cream sweater with a skirt & be ready for any occasion. Needless to say, this staple is crucial to my wardrobe, & yours too! I recommend starting a collection of nice, “statement” cream sweaters to help put together your fall/winter wardrobe. I recently purchased this one, which I can’t wait to wear during the holiday season. The detailed sleeves on this one help dress up an outfit, giving it a little more edge. It’s important to have both a patterned/cable sweater as well as a clean, simplistic option as well. Give yourself options to feel good about when choosing your outfit each day.

Styling A Cream Sweater

I think the thing I love most about cream sweaters is that no matter your “brand” or style or color palette, a cream sweater seamlessly fits into any clothing collection.
