Lovely layers

I’m going to take a moment and appreciate the 65 degree weather today in Louisiana. It doesn’t happen often.

Light layering is a necessity during this time. I added a sleeveless turtleneck under this moody floral dress from Tobi to add some coverage and give it a cozier feel. I added a light colored bag and boots, to keep the look fresh while it’s still that transitional weather. I also added these statement fringe earrings and oval sunnies to give the floral dress a vintage vibe.

The WHOWHATWEAR collection at Target I could talk about all day. But specifically their dresses. When I buy a dress, it has to meet a criteria:

1. needs to be to my knees 2. have sleeves 3. versatile

I mainly buy dresses for work and church so I need z modest dress, but I love how even though their dresses are modest, they are still modern and chic.

I played this glam leopard dress down with a pair of classic white sneakers, which makes it a little more casual and adds a cool street style vibe to the look.

Either you look at this outfit as a fun, easy, beachy summer look or that I look like a carnival barker (had to look up what they were called). But you know, that guy that wears the red striped blazer and boater hat at carnivals. And trust me, that wasn’t what I was going for. But, I love how fun and whimsical, and also kind of vintage the look is-which is the style I’ve been going for lately.

Another beautiful BCBGeneration dress coming at you, and this one is perfect for spring!! The weather currently can’t make up its mind whether it wants to be winter or spring. I live in these kind of dresses this time of year, because I can layer and I can remove…and I get the best of both worlds!

I love how the dress has a moody vibe to it but playful with the pretty smocking detail on the chest.

We all get into the “what do I wear now” phase of winter. I wanted to get out of the monotonous “I guess I’ll wear my favorite sweater for the third time this week” routine when getting dressed.

I first bought this wool, pleated dress to go with this vintage floral top for a cool vintage look. But once I had the dress, so much inspiration starting flooding, because there’s so many different ways you can go with this dress. Edgy with a moto jacket and cool tee, classic with a white button down, or the vintage school girl route.

The shape of the dress is so delicate, but the thick wool makes it sturdy for the winter.

A good mix up from the everyday jeans and sweater.

For some girls, New Years Eve outfits with all the sequins and jewels comes naturally. Not for me. But I wanted to be somewhat festive. The metallic threading of this dress has a subtle shine, but doesn’t blind you. And the color is totally unique. Once I added the choker to this look, I decided to go more old school glam with the look, by adding this vintage coat I thrifted last winter.

I’m also the person all about comfort, and although this dress looks like you’re wearing chain armor, it’s actually super soft and comfortable like a cotton shift dress. No one wants to be in an uncomfortable dress for hours, let’s be honest.
