What I Wore: Peplum and Pink

Weekends come and go so quickly. Just another Manic Monday (I’ll have that song stuck in my head the rest of the day.)

I’m starting to get a little depressed with all the “summer is almost over” discussion. The magazines are talking about the fall trends, I’m just not ready for all that yet. Feeling the pressure of having to wear all my summer clothes Right Now, before it’s too late!!

I’m being a bit dramatic this morning, but seriously I don’t want summer to end- (Insert Temper Tantrum)

I love the black and white pattern of the top against the bright pop of pink, and I’m a huge fan of the bow buckle detail on the belt. Obsession of the moment: Bows!

Hope you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

Summer Style Staple: LOFT Sundress

LOFT is currently having a huge sale on their dresses, now is the time to scoop them up! I promise you you’ll wear them for years. The structure and silhouettes are perfect for work and play, well made and come in a variety of colors.

I’m 5’2 so I wear petite in dresses and skirts, they are the perfect length fall right at or right above my knee in most cases unless the cut is designed to be shorter.

This dress is light and breezy in a pretty Coral color. The V in the front and back were a little too low for the office, to remedy that I threw on a floral scarf and white cardi to keep it conservative.

2 Ways to Wear your LBD

My vacation has come to an end back to reality. We were fortunate to have great weather all week and its always a blast to spend time with family. Til next year!

Manic Monday and back to work (Yes I realize today is Wednesday I’m a little behind this week.. Bear with me 😉 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; dresses are my staple come summer.

You can dress them up for work and dress them down for play. The LBD is the perfect example.

For Work: Grab a colorful blazer or cardigan, add some statement jewelry and wedges. Viola! Office Appropriate!

For Play: Colorful scarf, flats and a cute tote (got mine at Target $9.99!) Easy Breezy!

Here is how I styled my LBD for Work:

What I Wore: LBD

I love Loft! I had a few gift cards that I had gotten for my birthday earlier this month. I went on a shopping spree a week before vacation because of course when on vacation you need a new wardrobe… (All of the strangers will know the difference between this year and last years shorts and sundresses).

Ah yes the sick mind of a shopping addict 😉 Loft has great summer dresses, well made with classic silhouettes. I have and still wear dresses that I purchased a few years ago. Timeless pieces that wear well.

I purchased this black cotton dress recently and love it. It’s light weight and very flattering. I also bought the beaded stretch belt to wear with several other dresses I have in my closet. If you haven’t been to Loft lately visit soon! I’m very pleased with their summer selection.

Here is the LBD I wore last week:
