Long after it’s over, I’m still reeling from finals and moving out (all of which occurred within 48 hours of each other). Now I’m back home, and I’ve got to say, it feels nice. I was sitting downtown, as per usual, when I noticed a duo emerge from the local coffee shop. Both girls looked absolutely fabulous on the particular overcast-and-sever-thunderstorm-warning day. This Fashionista stunned in a salmon, lace dress complete with gold accessories and wooden heels.
Her dress was the first thing to catch my eye. I had been staring down the street when the color swung into my peripheral. When I turned and focused on the dress (and stopped drooling over how gorgeous the color was) I fell even more in love with the lace. I’m a sucker for lace. Simply cut, light, airy and still wonderfully elegant, the dress was perfect for a day out with friends.
This Fashionista sure knew how to amp up a look! She pulled the outfit together with gold statement pieces, namely a long necklace and a chunky watch. The golden tones helped show off her tan, and performed double duty by still giving the look something extra summery. Topping off the outfit were some amazing wooden heels. Strappy and chunky, they perfectly fit the summer mold.
One Simple Change: Pull on some Keds (for extra crazy fun, try a bolder print or solid). They’ll pare down the look, and make the outfit more casual. Then you can easily go from errands to out with friends to dinner with the parents. Or vice versa. Whichever way, you will undoubtedly look marvelous.
