Closet Staples: Lace Dresses

thevelvetdress 400 copy zps9ujox5mw Closet Staples: Lace Dresses

A little lace dress is the perfect summer day to night outfit. It’s a very versatile piece that you can throw on quickly for the day and can easily transition into the evening. You can grab pretty much any dress if your in a bit of a rush and still want to look put together. This is why they are the most packed/worn summer travel item as well. The first thing that I loved about this dress is the big cut out detail on the chest. I like that it shows some skin and adds a bit of a feminine touch to an otherwise dark look.…

Styling: Trench Coats

thevelvetdress8411 zpsyvp3va3z Styling: Trench Coats

These outfits were shot in some June gloom weather, which was just perfect to style my new trench coats from Members Only. Usually styled only in winter, I wanted to show how these are a versatile piece that can be worn even in slightly warmer weather if styled appropriately. With both looks I wore a little cotton dress and leather boots, so my outfit underneath was very comfortable and my dress was very breathable. My outfit was very minimal in detail so that I could easily slip on the trench and transition from day to night. Though I should mention that when I shot these looks it was about mid 60s F, which is still quite cool weather to me.…

A few of my casual, and not so casual, daily looks from the past 2 months. I will have two posts going up this week, (not including this one), to make up for no post last week. I apologize as everything got a bit pushed back from moving and tech issues. I also have a very detailed spring closet cleaning/organization post going up in the next couple weeks. I had to organize it into 3 parts as to not be too long, so part 1 will be coming soon. Info on the different daily looks will be listed below, though I will not be listing every item in each look.…

Closet Staples: Timepiece

new zpsh0hfaonl Closet Staples: Timepiece

A classic minimalist timepiece is a must-have accessory in every woman’s wardrobe. Not only is it a functional item because you won’t be distracted by your phone to check the time, but it goes with almost any outfit with minimal styling effort. It’s a staple piece, and one that’s been worn proudly by woman for awhile now. Though not too long ago it was actually taboo for women to wear a pocket watch as it was seen as a man’s accessory only, but then wristwatches came along and changed all that. Now anyone can wear them with confidence.

Daniel Wellington has a variety of watches, though I was most attracted to the classic vintage style and this beautiful Swarovski crystal design.…

Festival Lookbook, Lace Dresses

Goldd 49 zpsxyfspll0 Festival Lookbook, Lace Dresses

Part 1 of my festival inspired lookbook consists of two looks wearing a lace dress. This garment is my personal preference for festival-wear. I know the most common go to look is a festive crop top and shorts, but for me it’s much more convenient to wear one big piece of fabric instead of a few smaller items. I like to leave the details to the jewelry. It’s also more comfortable physically and it’s one less thing to keep track of if your a person who likes to dress in layers. I like to dance when I go to festivals, so I prefer to bring an outfit that I know I can take off the main layer and easily put it back on later.…
