What to Wear Wednesday: LBD

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all are having a wonderful week so far. It’s finally warming up in San Francisco which is a nice change. I couldn’t be more ready for wedges and sandals and flirty dresses and skirts. I’ve been trying to “shop my closet” but of course I ultimately am also craving new things. But I’ll have to do a separate post on that! Today let’s talk about the lbd- or little black dress. It’s classic and timeless and something everyone should have at least one of in your closet. As Karl Lagerfeld said “One is never overdressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” It truly is a fashion staple and works for every occasion  I think it’s important to actually have a few little black dresses in your closet- something you can grab and you know it will work.

The dress below is one such dress. I’ve had it for years but despite it’s age, it still works. It’s a great thick material that hangs just right, is fun and flirty while still being understated and demure which is why I knew it would be perfect for my Grandma’s 88th birthday celebration that you saw a sneak peek of earlier. To accent my dress I kept my accessories and shoes simple and went for a dark lip and a bright nail for a little pop.

What to Wear Wednesday: Neon and Neutrals

Hi lovelies! I hope that you are all having a lovely week so far! I woke up this morning and swore it was Thursday so I’m having a bit of a difficult time adjusting. Hopefully as the day goes on I’ll get more acquainted with the right day of the week 😉 Of course I’m already looking forward to the weekend where I plan to do a little shopping! With my brother’s wedding right around the corner, I need to get shoes to go with bridesmaids dress and a dress for the rehearsal dinner! Finding the perfect dress for the rehearsal is proving slightly difficult as it needs to be conservative enough to wear in the church but still fun and cocktail appropriate! If anyone has suggestions, I’m all ears!

In the meantime though, I thought I’d fill you in on the details of the dress I wore to the most recent bridal shower. In addition to celebrating my brother’s beautiful bride-to-be, I have loved finding the perfect feminine dresses for the bridal showers. For this one, I turned to LOFT who never lets me down. I spotted this dress online actually and was immediately lusting after it but when I saw it in person, I knew it had to be mine. To make matters even better, they were having a 40% off sale that day (LOFT always has amazing sales) so the dress was in my hot little hands immediately after entering the store. What I loved so much about the dress is that it combines neutrals with the neon pink for an unexpected pop. In fact, I love this combo so much that I foresee creating it in future outfits as well!

What to Wear Wednesday: Bow Belt

Hi lovelies, happy Wednesday! I hope that you are all having a great week so far and are as happy as I am that we are one step closer to the weekend! I feel like everyone around me is sick lately and I’m doing my best not to get it and loading up on the Airborne these days, though to be honest, I’m not even sure that stuff works. But it can’t hurt, right? That plus plenty of water- the past few weeks I’ve been working on drinking at least 2 liters a day and so far, so good.

I’m so glad that you guys like the new Fashion and Parties pages. While putting my fashion page together, I realized something… I do the same pose in practically every picture. Apparently I have a signature pose that I showcase for you each and every week- but now that I’ve noticed it I’ll try to change it up a bit! My outfit below is a current favorite of mine. I got the dress one evening at a store I rarely shop at– H&M. I know some people have tons of luck there but for me it’s always a hit or miss. Luckily, it was a hit that night. What it’s  hard to see in the picture is that the dress actually has a zipper all the way down the front which spices it up a bit. I decided to add the bow belt in a coordinating slate shade for a little interest and to define my waist a bit. And because it’s definitely a busy dress, kept it simple and classic with jewelry.
