Closet Staples: Wrap Dress

GraceKathryn 20161202 TheVelvetDress 008 Low Res zpsrs61se5d Closet Staples: Wrap Dress

A simple classic wrap dress is a staple in any wardrobe, though typically you see the full longer sleeve and shorter above the knee cut. This is a bit of a different take on the wrap dress; as it is a short sleeve and a long maxi style dress with a slit up the front. One of my favorite ways to wear classic pieces is to find a version of it that has more of a modern design. Though this is definitely more of a fall and spring time item, you just need to layer a coat to make it perfect for winter.…

Styling: Flats

D 01 1 1 Styling: Flats

It’s not too often that you’ll find me in flat shoes, but when I have a busy day and am trying to dress casual they are my best option. Though its often hard to find flat shoes that aren’t sneakers but are just as comfortable and durable, both of these looks feature these little black lace up flats by Restricted Shoes. I love the vintage inspired design and the classy bowtie front on these flats. I wore all black in two looks to show a simple day to night transition. Both looks also feature gold hardware which accentuates my new favorite little gold necklace from Muisse Jewelry.…

Closet Staples: Diamond Necklace

IMG 9048 1 1 zpsim82ejqr Closet Staples: Diamond Necklace

They say diamonds are a girls best friend and I think that saying alone should indicate that diamonds are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. They add a little bling to any outfit without looking too over the top. A delicate little diamond necklace will always look classy and elegant, and more importantly, not come across as too flashy. This is an item you could pair with jeans and a t-shirt on a casual day out running errands, or you could pair it with your nicest evening gown on the way to a big gala event. Either style could work and you would look both put together and not too overly dressed, which can be a fine line to walk with most diamond pieces.…

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.…

Styling: Sunset Moth

MG 0534 zpsrlxy1dzz Styling: Sunset Moth

Jewelry is a very special part of our wardrobes, but too often most of the styles for sale are mass produced and boring. It’s personally rare for me to find jewelry that I’m actually willing to spend money on and that I know I will keep in my collection for many years. Not only does it have to be my style, a special design and well made, but it has to be from a designer I know is putting true quality into their work so the pieces won’t break after multiple wear or travels. This is why I am exited to share with you one of my new favorite jewelers, Hart Variations .…
