Midi Dresses are really my favorite length! They always look ladylike and flattering no matter the occasion. Most recently I wore a more dressed-up white frock for Easter, but I also love a more casual take.
I have a black Reformation midi dress that I wore more often than I’d like to admit. It’s easy and breezy, can be a layering piece in the cooler months, or worn with sandals in Spring/Summer. I often throw it on with my golden goose sneakers, Gucci loafers, or a black pump for work. Because it’s become part of my work style rotation, I’ve really been yearning for a casual midi dress that is more fun for the weekends. Then, I found this flattering number from Free People!
First it’s black, so it’s slimming and chic. Second, the gauzy material makes it breathable and more appropriate for the Georgia heat. I love the details like the sexy plunging neck, button-up front, and ties around the arms. It quite honestly might be the perfect Summer midi! It comes in more than one color, so if black isn’t your style – there are other amazing options. I love the cream, tangerine, and the blue!
I definitely think this is a classic dress that I’ll have in my wardrobe season after season. I wore it this past weekend running errands around Buckhead and threw on some springy accessories to finish the look. Most notable is my Apolis market tote! This bag is one of my favorite items that I’ve gotten as of late. It’s fully customizable (I got “Brown Paper Doll”) ethically made, and incredible high quality – think waterproof and leather handles. I’ll be carrying this tote around while I run errands, pack for weekend trips, and maybe even pack a picnic or two! If you see the Brown Paper Doll bag around town, make sure to say hello!
So warmer weather has my sights set on my upcoming trip to Miami, lazy days by the pool, and sunshine-filled brunches! Sorry to all my friends still in NYC who are experiencing the aftermath of a snow storm!
Regardless, it’s never too early to start thinking of swimsuits and the wonders of Spring/Summer fashion . This year, I noticed a trend amongst all of the items that were catching my eye – ribbon, knots, and ties! So here are some of those pieces that have got me all tied up!
Free People Midi Dress: You all know I love a midi dress and this one has the prettiest lace-up detailing down the back that is truly something special. The black is my favorite, but the mustard also makes a statement!
Chloé: One of my favorite perfumes that I happen to be running low on at the moment, because I wear it all the time! Looks like it’s time for a re-up. Its floral, but not overpowering, and seductively feminine!
Mara Hoffman One-Piece: Something about a white swimsuit is so sexy to me! The white will look bright and stunning poolside, and I love the peek of skin held together by the flirtiest little knot.
Finn Love Knot: Because nothing says tied together like a love knot made of diamonds!
Dolce Vita Amber Mules: These heels are the prettiest shade of caramel leather with a feminine twist. I love the striped ribbon that has a slight nautical feel, but would surely go with jeans and sundresses alike! Wear these with white pants and an off the shoulder top, or a bright dress that screams vacation!
You ever have an outfit that you feel is totally mom-approved! Well not only is this dress totally lady-like, I could see my mom rocking it as well. White is probably the majority of my summer wardrobe. It looks fresh, clean, and always chic! I love the way it looks on bronzed skin, so its definitely one of my favorite colors to wear.
With spring holidays coming up…Mother’s Day, Easter, etc… I was in the market for a new Spring dress that was appropriate for family functions, but that I could throw on for any easy, breezy warm day. Enter this white stunner from Gianni Bini. I’m in love with the ladylike midi length and flattering fit-and-flare shape. However, what I love most is the grommeted details that add some heavy-metal edge. It makes this dress pretty, but not too sweet! For my look, I opted for simple nude strappy sandals (my favorite are the Stuart Weitzman nudist), and my ever-present straw hat!
I’ll be rocking this look for Easter and springtime teas with mom. When it gets cooler in the evening, I can’t wait to throw on a denim jacket to complete the look. Here’s hoping mom doesn’t steal this out of my closet!
