Summer Red

Top Forever 21, Skirt Nicole Miller, Heels Steve Madden, Necklace Bamboo Sky, Watch Michael Kors, Lipstick Revlon in Siren

Ever since I saw this dress on The Sartorialist, I have been wanting to wear red. I have always thought of it as more of a winter color, but my mind was completely changed when I saw that photo. Not having a dress in that shade of red, I went with an old sheer tank-top that was the perfect color. I got this Nicole Miller skirt at a designer consignment store in SF called Simply Chic. They have tons of beautiful designer things from Chanel bags to Burberry jackets for a fraction of the original price. I am in love with the mocha color of it and of course, it has pleats! 

Because it is so hot, I have found that wearing sheer fabrics is the key to beating the heat. Silky, chiffon tops and skirts are what I have been finding myself wearing a lot.

Fall Heels

Steve Madden Black Booties
Steve Madden Brown Booties
Asos Pumps
Nine West Loafer Pumps

Here are four styles of heels that I am lusting over to buy for Fall. The heels on the left are my dream heels, but luckily I found affordable alternatives for all of them! I am seriously loving the loafer pump right now. I also found a great Pour La Victoire pair here. I have already started my wish list for fall shoes I want and it pretty much consists of all booties. I wish I could buy them all!!!

Simplicity

Dress Aritzia, Belt H&M, Heels Jessica Simpson, Necklace Bamboo Sky, Watch Michael Kors, Bag Chicos

I love this dress for 5 reasons:
1. The adorable capped sleeves
2. It’s pleated
3. The way it flairs out just the right amount
4. The dark grey color
5. It has pockets

I wore this dress for work today. I can picture it transitioning perfectly into fall with some tights, a blazer, and a sparkly necklace. A classic structured dress is always a good purchase because you will be able to wear it for a variety of occasions.
