Lady in Red

Good morning!  Here’s another bold-colored, fall dress I wore over the weekend while on the east coast.  I love the shape of this dress: the boat neck shoulders moving to a sleek pencil skirt at the bottom.  It was perfect for the warm weather we were experiencing in New Jersey.  While I don’t normally wear head-to-toe red, this red was the right shade of bright and warm…and quite eye-catching!

So close to the weekend!

What I’ve been wearing lately — shirt dresses!  The combination of the light green and checkered pattern on this dress makes it the perfect dress for brunch, shopping, date night, pretty much anything you’ve got on your schedule.  The best part is it’s no-fuss.  You put on one item, throw on a pair of pumps and you’re ready to go.  I’ve got a few shirt dresses in my closet, all in different colors, textures and patterns, all ready for my busy schedule.  Above?  I was on my way to a baby shower!

A Flirt

Sometimes, it just takes a strappy sundress and a messy ponytail to get ready for a day out in the sun.  We are still getting plenty of sunshine here in Silicon Valley and I plan to treasure each and every moment!  Hope you had a great weekend and got a chance to recharge for the week.

Stripes Are Always Right

I’m sure you’ve heard the old ‘adage’ that “every girl’s closet needs some stripes” or “you can never go wrong with stripes”.  Well, it’s true.  A striped shirt (especially navy against white) is a versatile wardrobe MVP.  You can dress it with a floral skirt, pair it down with denim, or mix ‘n match with a trench coat or blazer.  As summer slowly winds down, I’ve been wearing my striped shirts as a layering piece.  This outfit would also look great with a long trench vest –> for example, see what I’m currently coveting right now over to the right!
