In case you haven’t figured it out, I am a huge fan of dresses. Always have been. I definitely have a feminine sense of style so it makes sense, but I must admit that in more recent years my reason for loving dresses has changed. After having Max, I don’t have as much time to get myself ready in the morning. There’s nothing easier than throwing on a cute dress, running a brush and Moroccan oil through my hair, sunblock on my face and out the door.
Lately I have been investing in treatments that help me wake up looking better since I don’t have a lot of time to spend on makeup etc. I mean I guess I could wake up earlier but who wants to do that? I have been getting lash extensions so I don’t have to deal with mascara (and seriously they are so low maintenance) and IPL treatments on my face so my skin looks better when not wearing makeup. If you are interested in hearing more about that kind of thing, please leave comments below! I could do a post on all my beauty secrets and go-to’s.
I styled this dress two ways. In the first look, I paired with a Gucci burgundy velvet crossbody and silver loafers. I love how the gold on the bag and bright silver of the shoes contrast. Now if you had asked me about that in high school, I would have been horrified. But mixing metals is so current and gives it a fun unexpected twist. In the second look, I added a leather jacket and studded sandals for a great fall transition look. Although we are technically in fall, it has been in the 90’s-100’s here so I am still going strong with my dress game (no jacket needed).
Have a great weekend guys! Thanks for stopping by!!!
