With temperatures going up, the last thing I’ll want to reach for are pants when going to work. Instead, it’s about this time that I’ll start wearing dresses on heavy rotation. But one thing to keep in mind is keep dresses work appropriate. I usually stay away from anything that’s not short sleeve or longer but that’s not always easy. So, I’ll usually opt for a lightweight cardigan or a blazer to keep things more professional. Then, when I step outside I can easily discard the outer layer and still keep cool.

For this stripe dress, I added a cute gold bow belt to highlight the waist, added a navy blazer, and paired it with black bow heels for the perfect work outfit. I can easily turn this day look into a nighttime look by getting rid of the blazer and belt, and add some cute earringss and a clutch.

Style trend: tie front shirt

style trend comment

Tie waist shirt | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

I might have several shirts in the same color or print but each one is different because of the small details. The tie waist shirt is one such example. Yes, you can easily take a button down and tie the front tails together but it’s so much better when the tie is purposefully placed there. I love this option due to the its length and can easy see it paired with jeans or shorts or even a skirt. Check out some of other favorites below:

Yellow tie front shirt

This past weekend flew by and all of sudden, it was Monday! There was lots of eating involved between a birthday party, a craft fair, and just trying out new restaurants. It was a smorgasbord of pizza, dumplings, Indian food, pho rolls, and even a pulled pork donut sandwich for good measure. And for that reason, a good top is needed to hide that food baby. This top was perfect for this past weekend because it did its job well – and for that, it’s a keeper 🙂

Style trend: scallop edges

style trend comment

Scallop edges | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

What is it about the scallop edge that instantly transforms an otherwise basic piece into something more interesting and oh-so-feminine? I am always a sucker for anything black and white so I’ve rounded up some wonderful pieces that incorporate that and the scallop edge detail. It’s the perfect color combination and detail to wear year round!


SHOP THE LOOK:

White scallop fit and flare dress

Black and white scallop overlay dress

Scallop hem skirt

Scallop hem cami tank {comes in 4 colors}

Black jacquard scallop hem shorts
