The different ways to style a striped dress are endless. This particular dress won me over during my recent try on session. The stripe combination, thicker fabric, perfect length, and price point made it a no-brainer. Opting for a slightly dressier look, I paired it with this sleeveless vest and contrasting heels. I can easily plan this dress for other occasions – pairing with a chambray top or worn as a tunic with some leggings. How would you style this dress?

Sale season is upon us. With the looming end of summer and start of fall, there’s a lot that’s up for grabs for great prices.

I’m loving the gold accent on this pair and also, the perforation on these booties. Black, grey and brown boots are complete in my closet but I need a nude pair – I’m eyeing this pair.

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th yesterday! I definitely can get used to having a holiday right in the middle of the work week – can we petition for that every week?

I’ve been veering towards the lighter pastels lately. I love how unassuming the front of this blouse looks but love the surprise crossover detail on the back. With the summer weather, it pairs perfectly with these lace shorts. A very feminine look achieved with the pink and lace details. This top can be easily worn for a more dressy look with pencil skirt or white trousers. If you’re looking for a more conservative look, try slipping this blouse over a white blouse for a fun and unique look. The pairing possibilities are endless!

Pink crossover back blouse – Theory (similar here & here)

Lace overlay shorts &nndash; Joie (similar here {70% off} & here)

Pink ankle strap heel – Marc Fisher (similar here & here)

When I am looking to make a look more put together or feel a little it more formal, a blazer is an instant go-to item. It’s easy to throw on as a layering piece and depending on the cut and structure of the blazer, can make an outfit something that’s a little bit dressy for a date night or gives you that professional feel for the workplace. This particular outfit is representative of something I’d wear going out to a night dinner with friends. For a corporate environment, I would swap the pink blazer for a black one (such as this one) and the shoes for a sleek patent pump.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Pink blazer – Merona (similar style here & here)

Stripe dress (similar style here {70% off!} & here)

Pink ankle strap pump (similar style here {run! 70% off} & here)
