A Flirty Fit & Flare Dress

dsc_0190-1-1-1untitled-copy-1dsc_0219-1-1dsc_0232-1-1dsc_0245-1dsc_0258-copyHey guys! For those of you who actually read my blog, I apologize for slacking on my blog posts. My initial intent was to publish a post every two weeks, but I’ve had a busy past couple of months with engagement parties, birthdays, bridal showers, upcoming weddings and travels which has contributed to my lack of content (as well as not being sure in which direction this blog was going), so thank you for bearing with me!! Also, since I have been uploading my outfits on Instagram more frequently, I’m going to start publishing a roundup of my Instagram outfits on the blog.

Even though we’re a week away from the fall season, today I’m sharing this white sleeveless fit and flare dress that I purchased for an “all-white” themed engagement party back in August. (I guess you can say I’m holding onto those last summer days just a tad bit longer!) On the plus side of me procrastinating, this dress and a similar one are on sale so hopefully you can snag one to add to your spring and summer wardrobe for next year.

This fun and flirty dress has a flattering shape and is super comfortable making it your go-to everywhere dress (I also wore it to my goddaughter’s 3rd birthday party and I plan on bringing it to Mexico with me next month). It has a hidden side zipper, buttons in front, pockets and is made of stretch cotton-blend fabric.  I can definitely say I’ve been able to get wear out of it. Since this dress is on clearance and more than half off, there aren’t many sizes left, but as usual, I’ve linked similar options and a black one that is currently in stock-a great option for a day in the office transitioning into a night out.

A Black & White Color Combination

zoomed icut offbw 9bw 12bw 5bw 7In this outfit post, I’m mixing one of my favorite color combinations along with two of my favorite past-times: off the shoulder tops and chokers.

You can never go wrong with a timeless and classic color combo like black and white, but chokers and off the shoulder tops on the other hand, are fashion trends that have really made a comeback this year. If it were up to me though, off the shoulder tops are one of the few fashion trends I would actually like to see stick around. There’s just something really sexy about bare shoulders and a collar bone; nothing wrong with showing a little skin.

My black distressed skinny jeans by PAIGE were another “treasure find” at TJ Maxx a few months back and they’re definitely a closet staple. The denim fabric is super soft and the ripped knees give this look just the right combination of flirty and edgy when paired with black ankle strap heels. You can tuck the shirt in for a more polished look, go casual with a pair of white or black sneakers or switch it up between black or nude pumps and ankle booties when it gets cooler out.

Jeans and a Cute Top Shop

pink shirt outfit10 editWhile Jenna and I were galavanting through the streets of downtown Wheaton during our little fashion shoot, we stumbled upon a ladies fashion boutique called Jeans and a Cute Top Shop. Ironically, I was dressed in a pair of jeans and cute top so we decided to stop in front of the store for a quick photo op (hence the title of this post).

Now, it isn’t necessarily my intention to put together an outfit that is inspired by the fashion trends from the 70s era, but rather my love for flare jeans, wedges and stacked heels will just never go away. So here I am, looking like I stepped out of the 70s, yet again, in my high-rise flare jeans and lace top.

This J. Crew Raindrop scalloped lace top in blush pink was actually a recent find at Marshalls and it pairs well with almost anything, including light or dark wash denim, white, navy or black pants, skirts or shorts. The soft blush color and detailing make this shirt especially feminine and while it retailed for $110, I snagged it for only $19.99. Who doesn’t love a great deal?! My Levi’s flare jeans were a find at T.J. Maxx earlier this season for only $17.99 and the light wash is perfect for spring and summer. These are my first pair of Levi’s and I absolutely love the silhouette and how my derrière looks in them so I’ll definitely be shopping for another pair of Levi’s soon.

I accessorized with rose gold hoop earrings, platform slingback sandals and my iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 to complete the look.

A Red Lace Number

red dress edit16 edit17 editI came across this Laundry by Shelli Segal sheath cocktail dress at Marshalls a few weeks ago marked down from its original retail price of $148 to $39.99. This red lace number is fully lined, has a lace yolk overlay and frayed scalloped hem, making it just the right combination of classy and sexy.  With the couple of weddings, bridal showers and an engagement party I have coming up within the next few weeks, I knew this dress would be a good purchase so I snagged it right away since there was only one available and it just so happened to be in my size.

A red lace dress is perfect for an evening out, a cocktail party or a special event and can be worn with nude or black pumps or brown, nude or black open toe ankle strap sandals. I accessorized with my Louis Vuitton clutch and my brown Italian Suede Accordion bag with gold chain from Banana Republic to show two different options and I opted for nude pumps for the afternoon.
