Since I’ve moved back down South, I’ve seen my style move towards brighter colors and away from my black/navy Rag & Bone uniform in Manhattan.  I’m opting for color, print, and breezy silhouettes regardless of the season. And with Summer right on the horizon, my gravitation towards all things bright has gotten even stronger. Enter this Carolina K dress that feels like a drop of sunshine. With a full tiered skirt, I’ve worn it as a sundress (as shown), AND thrown a sweater over it to wear as a skirt to work. I’m all about flexibility in my garments these days. I can’t wait to wear this all Summer as a part II to my Lemonade-inspired look!

 

Dress: Carolina K.  Clutch: Pamela Munson.

New Bag – Dior Clutch

I love sharing my new purchases with you all, and I’m super excited to share the most recent addition to my bag collection – a fold-over Dior clutch. This is my first Christian Dior bag, so I feel like this is extra special!

 

Unlike my usual bag purchases,  I hadn’t been coveting this one. I just saw it one day, and it spoke to me as something different and fashion-forward. I love the oversized nature of the clutch, the iconic Dior oblique print, and the navy color palette.  But what’s amazing about this bag is that it can also be converted into a tote bag – so it’s like two bags in one!

 

And if this bag seems familiar to you, it might be because it’s a re-release of a vintage style. You may have seen Carrie toting this around (in signature brown) on Sex & The City!  Well, while I’m certainly not on Carrie’s level, my bag collection is starting to rival hers. You’ll see my wearing this around all summer, as a tote AND as a clutch!

 

Bag: Available at Dior Boutiques

Eyelet is one of those fabrics that just gets me every time. It has a girly quality to it that I think is so pretty in white or pastel shades for Spring and Summer. This year, I found the cutest eyelet dress from H&M that I thought looked much more expensive than the actual price tag.  I caught it on sale, and thought it was so cute that I actually got it in both black and white! While the dress might be sold out online, it can still be found in stores, so don’t be discouraged if you like this look. As shown, I recently wore it with lace-up Loeffler Randall heels and my Dior clutch. I didn’t photograph it in black, but believe me…it’s just as cute!

 

Dress: H&M.  Shoes: Loeffler Randall.
