Warm Weather Winter

Atlanta has been so warm the last few days. I didn't even bother with a jacket today. I guess we won't be getting any snow this winter!

Most of my dresses don't have sleeves, like today's dress, so I appreciate the warmer temperatures, but I do miss snow sometimes!

Outfit Details

Dress: Black Halo Audrey Mini Dress

The dress has a side zipper so it's really easy to get on, as well as a tie at the neck. I'm wearing a size 2 for reference. This dress must run big, because the top and waist were a little loose on me.

Shoes: Sophia Webster Rita Sandals in Black and Rose Gold

You can't buy these exact sandals, but Sophia Webster has the Rita design in a platform or wedge style on her website.

Bitter Chocolate

The color of this dress from A.L.C. is metallic bitter chocolate, and it's certainly fitting. The silhouette isn't all that unique, but the color makes it stand out -- especially on a dreary, overcast January day in Atlanta! I think the dress works well with my coloring, too.

Dress: A.L.C. Elara Metallic Halter Dress

I actually brought the dress with us to Spain but never got a chance to wear it... so I'm wearing it for the first time to the office. It's a little dressy for work, but that's just me. I'd rather be overdressed than go to work in sweats.

Shoes: Sophia Webster

I tried something different with my makeup today; can you tell? With this technique, you apply concealer to different points of the face, then contour, THEN apply foundation. I recently started following Victoria Lyn on Instagram, and if you like trying new hair and makeup tips and tricks, you should definitely follow her. She has over a million followers already!

Springtime Vibes

I love the bold floral print on this Alice and Olivia long-sleeved dress. It's perfect for a cool and sunny winter day in Atlanta.

You can find it on the Alice and Olivia website as well as Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale's. It's comfortable and chic -- the ideal combination for work!

This exact color combination is no longer available, but Sophia Webster is famous for these gem sandals and you can find them in other colors like black on the Sophia Webster website. It's one of my favorite shoe brands, but remember -- it runs small!

I went with a monochrome look for today's trip to the office.

Dress: Herve Leger Rib Lace-Up Long-Sleeve Mini Dress in Stone

You can still buy the dress in yellow on the Herve Leger website.

Purse: Balenciaga Crocodile Purse

Chapin bought me the purse in Spain a few months ago on our trip; it was an early Christmas present. I haven't seen this ombre gray hue on any purse here, so I am glad I chose it... and it works so well with this dress!

Ramy Brook

Today I'm wearing a Ramy Brook dress, a gift from my sister, Gail, this past Christmas. It's my first dress from the brand. The ruching is amazing for hiding flaws, and combined with the tight fit of the skirt, (think pencil skirt), it is really flattering.

Enter Lilly Pulitzer

I'll admit it - I don't really like most of the designs coming out of Lilly Pulitzer. The prints are so obnoxious, the colors more of a summer style, and the designs... for someone curvy like me, I need more than a shift dress that's just going to hang there.

BUT -- never say never. I just adored this eyelet dress as soon as I saw it. I've been waiting for it to go on sale, but being new to the brand, I didn't realize that there are only "Sunshine Sales" a few times a year. There was one last week, and I was able to score this dress for a great deal. It is super flattering, with a low cut neckline and belted waist, and in a gorgeous emerald green color. How could I NOT buy it?

I'm actually sporting a new footwear brand as well! These Nalebe pumps are delicate and beautiful -- and the heel isn't too high, meaning they are actually comfortable. They are on sale now at stores like Shopbop.
