Summer to Fall in a Little White Dress & Link-up


When my sweet girl, Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood asked me to co-host with her and suggested we style a little white dress my first thought was "oh shoot, I have to go out and buy one." If you've been following me for a little while now, or if you are new, I am the first person to tell you that I am actually very frugal.  I love clothes, accessories, nice things, just like any other girl but I am careful with my budget and how I choose the pieces in my closet. I don't buy clothes just so I can put them up on this blog, but rather want to show that every woman can dress and feel good regardless of age, size and pocketbook.  I do splurge a few times a year and buy something like the dress I am styling today, that makes me feel sexy, feminine, classy and unique.  I remembered this dress in my closet from  a couple of years ago that  doesn't get nearly enough attention from me but I am not ready to part with it. It's so simple yet it has so much going on.  The overlay lace.  The silhouette.  And how abut the fringes that are  made for showing off and twirling around in, don't you think?  You can also see it styled here from a couple of years ago when we were in Paris.

I decided how to style this dress for both a summer and early fall date evening with your special someone, or to go out with some girlfriends.
Summer Look

It's summer so really you just need a cute pair of sandals, I chose my trusted Guess flats, a straw bag and accessories.  I love, love, love statement earrings, especially ones that have contrast and frame the face nicely.  I've been all about the tassels this year.    I only really choose once statement accessory and keep everything simple and neutral.  I recently received this .....bracelet for my birthday and thought I'd give it a try.  



 
 
 
 
 



Fall Look

Easy, peasy with a dress like this.  Throw on some booties, I choose my trusted Expression booties, but peep toe booties would be perfect for early fall, and a jean jacket for a little extra warmth.  A clutch to dress the look up a bit and instead of statement earrings, I went with my favorite H & B long necklace that shimmers in just the right light.

  5. What a beautiful dress on you! Fits you to a tee and I love the design. I have a similar one from Mango without the fringe. Love how you styled it for cooler weather and those booties are fabulous!
