Bid Summer adieu

Summer has officially ended. But, the sun is still shining and the weather is pleasantly warm, so I am keeping my skirts out for a final twirl, up until the real autumn weather arrives.DSC04896Today I paired one of my favorite flippy skirts with this soft lightweight sweatshirt and some black military booties for that September weather look.  I am not ready to dive into wool layers just yet. For me, transition styling is all about staying comfortable with the changing seasons.

Spring Blue from Dress Lily

Blue dressHappy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are staying cozy warm. I am still trying to get over this cold weather in the Chicago area. Just can’t get myself to love it anymore. I have loved the snow days, enjoyed being a snow angel and drooled over some trendy winter style inspirations. Now I am ready for colorful spring dresses kinda weather. I couldn’t stop myself when I saw this beautiful dress in the striking blue shade from Dress Lily. I wore it this past weekend at a friend’s baby shower and felt a little bit of spring in my step. This fit and flare dress makes a fun outfit for any get-together. I am a fan of the flattering color-block in the black & white. The dress fits true to size and is comfortable whether you are dancing or sneaking that extra slice of cake (shh!) :). The fabric and color turned out to be different than the website picture. The color is brighter and the fabric is lighter than expected. But, it is a playful and affordable spring dress. The only drawback was that it took forever for me to receive it (over a month). Their shipping services can surely use a speed boost. Continue reading

Shades of blue

Today is all about fall’s ‘it’ hue, blue. This look is inspired for my blog collaboration with the beautiful Madeline from Veloria in Velvet. Madeline and I have, what one might call an intense blue crush. Big fans! We decided to team our creative minds together and celebrate our love for this stand-out color by putting together two everyday looks that are easy and chic. Both these looks are perfect for fall and transition from work to play very easily. With appearances on the runways and streets, the cool, saturated shade is a bold choice whether it’s rocked head-to-toe or added as a pop of color to an outfit.

Blue - 2 ways

I love the pop of blue in Madeline’s look. Be sure to check out Veloria in Velvet for her outfit details and more style inspirations. I am a big fan of her tricks on styling prints and patterns.
