Dreaming of Spring

Winter is definitely my least favorite season, and snow days mean a lot less now that I have more flexibility with working from home.

When it's 30 degrees out, I find myself craving things that remind me of warmer days ahead... like this floral Black Halo dress.

Outfit Details

The puffed elbow-length sleeves and peachy pink floral print are so beautiful, but I was disappointed in the choice of material. The cotton has little give, and it will wrinkle immediately after you sit down. 

Shoes: Valentino Rockstud Crisscross d'Orsay Pumps in Gold (no longer available)

I had my hair trimmed over the weekend, and it feels so healthy again! It's amazing what a simple haircut can do for you.

Stay warm, Atlanta!

Searching for Fuchsia

I love how these fuchsia Sophia sandals (technically the color is labeled "pink cherry metallic") bring out the fuchsia undertones in the dress.

The Power of Ruching

A ruched dress will work on any body type. It's perfect for hiding flaws and showcasing an hourglass figure. This Black Halo dress combines ruching with one of my favorite colors - royal blue - and a high neck for an overall very flattering outfit.

Outfit Details

Dress: Black Halo Kobe Ruched Sheath Dress

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Mesh Pumps in Electric Blue (no longer available)

I love monochromatic looks, which is why I chose to pair these neon blue pumps with the dress. But you could go with a variety of other colors as well, including gold, silver and black, or a printed pump or sandal. And yes -- my eye makeup is blue, too!
