Keeping It Simple w/ My Floral Dress


Hi Darlings! I get a ton of emails asking about styling and advice etc. and I plan to cover a bit more of this in a video  soon but for today one that comes up a lot is how I make my casual clothes look glam? now although I guess I never really thought about it I suppose there are rules that I have for myself.

1. If I am wearing a casual outfit I always add more accessories and am not afraid to add sparkle in my jewelry, no one said you cant wear a blinged out necklace with jeans and a t-shirt.

2. If I want my outfit to be the center of attention (like today) I keep my jewelry really simple because I want my dress to be the focal point.

3. I will put on several pieces of jewelry on and then look at myself while I take it off and switch up until I feel I have a good mix.

Get The Look....

I picked up this Floral Strapless Dress from Liv Boutique  item# DR915341A $56.00 (I think they take phone orders and will ship) during my trip to San Fran last month. My pumps are old, like 4 years old at least and this is the first time I have worn them, LOL and unfortunately I do not remember where I got them, sorry.  My sunnies are from Kate Spade (old) but there are similar ones HERE

  6. this dress looks like a twist on the DIY maxi dress that you have posted. I love your style and I do the same with my shoes. One day you buy an outfit that coordinates with them perfectly. Even if it is months and years down the line! lol

    Your style advice is very practical.
    I really have to remind myself to put on accessories because I know they can add so much to an outfit.
