Classic Navy Sheath Dress

IMG_1305IMG_1306

Y’all, I am loving this sheath dress that I picked up a few weeks ago on super sale at Stein Mart. Yes, you read that right. I bought this dress at Stein Mart and am super proud of that fact. Honestly, who wouldn’t be after saving close to 100 dollars?!

As far as the dress itself goes, I love the classic navy/white color palette and the style of it. I normally don’t go for a sheath style dress but from the first moment I put this on in the dressing room, I knew it was a perfect fit. It’s hard enough finding a dress at such a great price, but finding one that is fitted for someone with some curves and that hits just above the knee is nothing short of a miracle.

Kudos, Stein Mart. Kudos.

Five Escapada Living Must Haves for Summer

 

Once summer comes around, I’m all about wearing dresses and tops made of lightweight fabrics, which are a definite must when you live in such a hot and humid area like I do. With that being said, since moving back to the Houston area, I have constantly been on the hunt for brands that use lightweight fabrics while also still remaining stylish.

One of those brands that I have found to satisfy my fabric and style needs is Escapda Living. I mean, not only do I love the feel of their pieces, but I also love how the classic cuts of them are styled with either a fun print or some tassels. All of which work perfectly down here in the South!

Dresses That Are Perfect for a Day Wedding This Summer

Wedding Guest Attire 2017--Before 5 pm

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

Weddings that occur during the day are (in my opinion) the trickiest to dress for, as you never want to go too dressy but also don’t want to don just any sundress (it’s still a special occasion). That’s why going with a dress that has a unique feature such as a pop of color, a ruffled one sleeve, or a cold shoulder works. It isn’t too overpowering for a day wedding but still has some added visual interest.

Turquoise + White

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m going to be spending this Friday in a ridiculously stereotypical manner by making tacos and guacamole. Will also more than likely indulge in a Corona or a Pacifico as well because cheers to the weekend, am I right?

Also, I know I’ve posted about Jude Connally before but I am absolutely OBSESSED with the moisture wicking material she uses for her designs. For those who also live in an area where it gets quite warm and humid during the summer months, I highly recommend you check this line out as it is so breathable and easy to wear. This dress in particular is perfect for summer, with it’s turquoise and white (aka one of my favorite color combinations) and it’s halter-like style.

Have a great weekend!

Modern-day LBD | Happy Birthday Audrey Hepburn

Black Joseph Ribkoff dress w Turquoise Clutch_1

 

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” -A.H.

When the majority of the world thinks of Audrey Hepburn they picture LBDs and all the movies that she starred in. I do, too; however, I also picture her in the role she played as a mother, mentor, and humanitarian.

Growing up, I first came to recognize her as a role model not because of the grace she carried herself with or her movies but because of all the work she did outside of the film studio. First and foremost, I learned how Audrey Hepburn was such a caring individual with a really big heart who always felt the need to give to and help others.

So as much as I credit a lot of my style choices due to having her as a role model, I’d also like to think that she taught me lessons on how to be a generous and loving soul.

Wednesday Want: Bookmaking Brunch Dress in Roses

Modcloth Brunch Dress in Roses

 

If there’s one thing I love about warmer weather, it’s the ability to wear a dress without worrying about if my legs, arms, or what have you will get cold. Seeing as how I am a dress person, not having to worry about something like that makes life just a bit easier.

As far as this new Modcloth dress, I am loving SO many things about you. The colors, the lovely print, the fact that it’s above the knee (huge plus for someone who is just barely over five feet tall), and also just the overall classic look of it.

With seeing such a huge quantity of cold shouldered dresses out there (too many in my opinion), it’s really refreshing to see more classically designed dresses still hitting the racks per se.

Happy hump day!

Wednesday Want: Raella Embroidered Tunic Dress

Since having laid eyes on those gorgeous dress while on vacation in Portland, I have been dreaming of it being in my closet close to every night. Okay, not every night, but I have dreamed of it!

I love the mustard color of it, the A-line silhouette, and the vibrant stitching on the sleeves and hem.

Here’s to spring weather, so I can wear my warmer weather dresses again!
