Cool Runnings

The weather has finally turned cooler in Atlanta! I don't know how long it will last, but I had a great run outside early this morning. I'm definitely taking advantage of these temperatures while I can. It was amazing to come back from a run feeling good and not completely drenched from head to toe in sweat!

This red dress from Shoshanna is perfect for the weather, featuring scalloped edges, a light crepe material and three-quarter sleeves. It runs a little large - I'm wearing a size two and the sleeves are just huge on me - but I still love it.

I always try to match my lipstick to my dress when I wear red - you can't go wrong with a strong red lip!

Stay Puffed

It was so windy when I was taking my picture that I didn't think any would actually come out! It's going to be a rainy and stormy week here in Atlanta!

Today's dress is one that I just loved from both a color and design perspective. As you probably know by now if you ever read this blog, I love a good puffed sleeve -- and the sleeves on today's dress are extra puffed!


Outfit Details


You can still buy this dress at select retailers like NET-A-PORTER or a longer version in a light blue. Saks is also carrying this dress in white, but I just love the army green color. It was fun getting my eye makeup to match!

The dress is super soft and easy to wear, fitted at the waist and with ruffles at the neckline and hem. It's feminine and chic - perfect for the office!

Pink on Pink

 Every woman needs some pink in her closet. I love how this color accentuates a healthy summer glow, and it can be worn on everyone. Pink is feminine and fun... there's nothing wrong with pink!


This bodycon dress from BCBGMaxAzria is designed to show off your curves, but is still ultra flattering, with a fluttering hemline and sleeves to draw the eye. The vertical ribbed detailing also helps elongate the frame, making you seem slimmer. It's all about the details!

Movement

If there's one thing this dress has, it's a lot of movement! I love the pleated skirt and how it flows down around my hips and legs. Combined with the color, this dress is definitely eye catching! Vogue mentioned the dress in its piece about Alice + Olivia's Pre-Fall 2019 Collection, saying it was the perfect dress for spinning around on a dance floor. I won't be doing too much dancing anytime soon, so I guess wearing it to the office will have to do for now!

Shoes: Sophia Webster Rosalind Jeweled Sandals in Turquoise

These jeweled sandals by Sophia Webster match perfectly. I got a great deal on them, but this exact color is no longer available. You can still find them in silver or black on the Sophia Webster website, though. I love these sandals so much, I also have them in gold!

Dressing With Ease

 One of the most appealing traits of the typical fit and flare dress is the ease with which you can wear it. You don't have to worry about underwear choice, to Spanx or not to Spanx, what bits are bulging, etc. You can just pop it on and head out.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Halston Heritage Black and Cream Organic Notch Fit and Flare Dress

The dress has an eye-catching pattern, little cap sleeves and a flattering v-neck. Anyone, especially women with curves, will feel comfortable and confident in this dress.

Shoes: Sophia Webster Rosalind Crystal 85 Heeled Sandals in Black

These sandals are super cute, with a jeweled crystal heel that helps make them truly unique.

Troian Bellisario from Pretty Little Liars wore these sandals (in a gold hue) when she attended Meghan and Harry's wedding in 2018. Was that really two years ago? Time sure does fly by...

What Zooey Wore

I had so much fun wearing today's dress. It gave me the opportunity to play with my eye makeup -- yes, it's purple -- and wear my new shoes from Sophia Webster. I'm so glad platform pumps are making a comeback. I feel so tall!

This Shoshanna dress is actually one I first saw on actress Zooey Deschanel late last year. I love the cut and color so much, so I patiently waited for it to go on sale... until finally, it did!

Outfit Details:

Dress: Shoshanna Leanna Pleated Ruched Dress 

While I was first drawn to the dress because of the color, I also love how the overall design is so flattering to women with curves. The ruched detailing hides imperfections at the hips and thighs and the cap sleeves slim your arms. You can still buy the dress on RueLaLa.com, but only select sizes are still available.

Shoes: Sophia Webster Juju Glitter Platform Sandals

Yes, I've been obsessed with Sophia Webster lately. I just love her shoe designs! These glitter platform pumps are in a rose gold color, which I think complements the violet color of the dress in the perfect way.

In addition to this color (described as peach sequins with a rose gold finish), you can also find the shoes in black and gold on the Sophia Webster website.

Knock Off

I don't know much about the Kaimilan brand; it may be a RueLaLa or Gilt created brand used to knock off higher priced designer dresses. Whatever the case may be, today's dress looks very similar to the Self Portrait Abstract Floral Guipure Mini Dress, which retails for almost $500. I definitely didn't pay anywhere close to that price!

It's still a cute dress, so regardless of its origins, I'm going to wear it.

Outfit Details

Dress: Kaimilan Black and White Floral Dress

Sandals: Jimmy Choo Lottie Metallic Leopard Print Sandals

I love mixing different patterns, so even though the dress features flowers and the shoes a subtle leopard print, I think the two still work well together.
