Fiesta

Standard

This dress makes me want to go to Mexico and listen to a mariachi band while sipping margaritas!  I’m pretty sure it was made to wear to a fiesta.  The denim takes on such a fun and festive spin with the bright, multi-colored embroidery and cute cap sleeves.

It is also so comfortable!  Even more so without the belt, which basically turns it into a really full short mumu!  And it has pockets.  I mean, enough said, right?

This dress is definitely going with me on my next beach vacation, but with neon yellow sandals rather than heels.  Said vacation is about 3 1/2 months away, but it never hurts to start thinking ahead;)

Have a great Monday!  If you need me, I’ll be daydreaming about white sand beaches and sombreros.  Ole!

1dress3waysThere’s nothing I love more than coming up with multiple ways to wear my favorite items.  That’s why I thought it would be fun to share a post where I did just that-create a look for three different occasions with one dress.

Church  churchdress4bownecklaceThis first look I put together for church. I love the matchy-matchiness of the sparkly necklace with this dress. They really look like they were made for each other!  I decided to go all in with the blue accessories, from my sunglasses all the way down to my feet.churchdress2bluewedgeheelschurchdress1I’ve had these blue wedge sandals for years and don’t wear them a whole lot anymore, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity.blueshades

Dress: White Plum (sold out) / Necklace-similar colors here and here, Bracelets, & Shades-similar: Rue 21 / Heels & Watch: Target, old / Clutch: Maurices, old

Workworkdress2workheelsFor my work look, I had to add a cardigan to adhere to our “no tanks allowed” dress code.  I chose to play up the blue in the dress again by covering up with this striped cardigan, and I also really like the way the patterns compliment each other. workdressaccessoriesworkdressI thought the blue sweater and blue heels might be a little over the top, so I switched it up with coordinating camel belt and heels instead.

I’ll let you in on a little secret…on a lot of Mondays, you will find me in the same outfit I wore to church the day prior.  It eases a little of the Monday stress if I have something ready that I already know works!

Care to share any of your 3-in-1 tips?  Which version of mine is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

Let’s Take a Tour

Standard

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Mine was great because my Tyson came home. He had been in Guatemala since last Saturday, and I missed him terribly! (Read about the mission we are part of here)

tribaldressandpinkshoesbluewhitetribaldresstribalbuttondownandhatbluetribalbuttondownI didn’t make the trip this year, but hearing him talk about the children, his time in Antigua, and a day trip to the ocean certainly made me regret it. I must have had the streets of Antigua on my mind when I wore this because it’s perfect for a day of touring the cobblestone streets.buttondowndressandhatbuttondowndressPug approved.tribalbuttondown

The light-weight material of this dress and a sun-blocking hat are perfect for a hot day of strolling the streets of some exotic location.  Unfortunately, I was only in my back yard when I took these photos, and the only touring I did was to work and back (sans hat), but this cute little number will definitely be going with me on my next vacation!  White Plum calls this the Belizean Breeze Day Dress.  I think a day in Belize would do just fine;)

LBD

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear LBD (little black dress)?  My first thought is usually special date night or celebration, but I’m putting a more casual spin on my LBD.

For me, one who prefers dresses over anything else, this is the perfect little outfit for a busy day at the office or running weekend errands.  I ordered these espadrille flats a few weeks back from Sole Society when they were having the sale I mentioned here, and they are sooo comfortable.  Maybe I’m getting old because I can’t get enough of flats right now!

Actually, I wore this exact outfit last Friday for a few hours at work and then up to Indianapolis.  Tyson and I had a late lunch, hit up Starbuck’s and then went to the Dave Matthews concert in Noblesville. Before the concert, I switched into my suede booties, and by the end of the night, I was so wishing I had my flats on.  Although my feet could have been so sore because I was a dancing machine!  That sounds way better than blaming it on age, agreed?

Hello lovely readers!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend (they always go way too fast don’t they).  I scored this blazer last weekend yard saling with my mom.  It still had the tags on it!  Of course, I first noticed the color, my favorite, and then it won me over with the colorful, Aztec print of the cuffs.

As soon as I saw this dress hanging in my closet, I knew it would be a perfect match.  They seriously look like they were made for each other!  Since the dress (first seen here) is on the shorter side, I knew I had to wear it with some lower-heeled shoes, and these sandals were the perfect choice.  They are so comfortable, and the nude color goes with everything.  #1 tip for longer, leaner legs: nude shoes.  Works like a charm!

You girls know I love me some dresses, and this one is absolute perfection.  My favorite color blue mixed with orange in a fun, bright print, plus the unexpected long sleeves and cross-straps in the back…what’s not to love!?!

And the best part is how easy this look was to put together:

Step 1: Remove dress from hanger.

Step 2: Put it on.

Step 3: Put shoes on your feet.

In case you’ve ever wondered why my obsession with dresses, there you go.  So easy, and I walk out the door feeling like a million bucks.  I shared my winter uniform with you here, and today’s look definitely qualifies as my summer uniform.  What’s yours?

Monday Remix:Polka Dot Dress

Standard

reddressredblackpolkadotsredpolkadotdressrufflesandpolkadotsfloralheelsandpolkadotsDress: White Plum (no longer available) similar here (splurge) and here, Plus / Blouse: Maurices, old similar, similar / Necklace: Gift / Purse: hand-me-down similar, similar / Heels: Charlotte Russe / Watch: Target, similar / Ring: hand-me-down

This dress is definitely one of my closet favorites.  When I bought it, I really didn’t take the time to think about all the different ways I could wear it; I just knew I love dresses, I probably “needed” one with polka dots, and it was too good of a price to pass up!

Now I know that my favorite thing about this dress is its versatility.  From pairing it with summer sandals to wintery leather boots, it’s a staple for all seasons.

Playing up the deep V-neck with a black ruffly blouse, and adding floral Heels were a new fun idea-tested and approved!  As I’m typing this, I’ve even got a couple more ideas floating around for this dress…stay tuned for details;)
