COMFY CHIC DAY DRESS – When it’s warm, my favorite thing to wear is a stretchy knit day dress – in stripes of course! I knew I loved this dress as soon as I pulled it out of my Stitch Fix box. I love the ruching on the waist – it hides a little extra dinner and creates such a pretty feminine line. I’m itching for fall fashion, so I added this airy scarf in plaid. The print mix combo is preppy meets classic, which is just my style! As I’ve mentioned before, all you need to look stylish is a good ladylike handbag and a great pair of pumps (and coat) and you’re set.
I practice what I preach … I’ve styled this handbag and shoes quite a bit this summer. For summer, swap out the coat for a breezy scarf. I’ve put together 3 effortless chic day dress looks for you below. Scroll through to see all three complete outfits. [Read more…]
CLASSIC POLKA DOT DRESS – I love classic prints like this polka dot Loveappella “Aberdeen” dress from Stitch Fix. It came with a matching fabric belt, but I like to add my own. The belt is from a Target LBD that was handed down to me from a friend. The dress is long gone, but I kept the versatile belt.
I recently received a Stitch Fix box and the next two posts will feature dresses from that Fix to conclude my summer dress posts. After that, I plan to move into fall inspiration! Finding the perfect fit for a dress can be a challenge, so I’ve jotted down some notes for what to look for according to body shape in my stylist notes below. Please feel free to add your own helpful tips in the comments below. [Read more…]
PARISIAN CHIC DAY DRESS – Two “must have” items for dressing like a Parisian are a black & white striped top (or dress), and a silk scarf. The art of French dressing is finding (or altering your garments) to get that perfect fit and by mixing high & low end items.
In my case, I paired low with low. I styled my H&M striped dress ($17.99, silk scarf from a Thrift Shop ($1), and classic style bag via Ross ($20.00) with a pair of Katie and Kelly shoes ($49.00). It’s style and cut that make you look sophisticated. See my PARISIAN CHIC CHECKLIST below for everything you need to dress like a French Woman.
