Outfits recap – July 2014

Goodbye, July! The weather was much nicer around these parts which meant more opportunities to wear dresses! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: dresses are so versatile and perfect for those mornings when you’re running late or seem to not have anything to wear. Which outfit was your favorite?

I always love a good black and white ensemble, and this Kate Spade dress fits the bill! What is it about these two “basic” colors that makes them work so well together? This dress serves as a good canvas for adding color to the outfit; for example, these new shoes. It was my first purchase from Sole Society and I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the heels. Not only are they comfortable but they are definitely a unique color combination. Depending on the light, it may look like a lavender color or a blush color. And, more importantly, what could be more cute than bows on one’s toes? I decided to keep it simple for this ensemble but I’m sure these two items will be on repeat a lot in the coming months!

Save or splurge: bow heels

save or splurge comment

Want to add a feminine accent to an outfit? An instant fix can be the easy addition of a bow. Try adding a bow to your hair or a top with a bow, or even your purse.

When I first saw these cute bow heels, I immediately fell in love. How could you resist the blush color and the gold bow detailing? These heels are definitely something I could see wearing over and over. The bow is a classic piece of the Ferragamo collection and for good reason. A little out of your budget? Consider this very similar heel that is just as cute!

How about pairing it with this cute outfit: a black sweater, a striped midi skirt, a gold necklace and a gold clutch to offset the entire look?

How would you pair these fabulous heels?
