Lady in Red

Greetings Loves!!

Hoping you all had a blessed and relaxing extended weekend. This Sunday my mother held a "Ladies in Red" function at her church. I waited until the last minute to find a red dress and boy was it a nearly impossible task. Church appropriate red dresses were nowhere in sight. However, I stumbled upon this dress at H&M and although, it is a little figure hugging I went with it, as I didn't find too many other options. I threw a blazer over it to make it church appropriate. However, this dress can easily be utilized for date night, by removing the jacket. Well, hope you all enjoy the look! XOXO
The Occasion: Church, Date Night, Holiday Party, Wedding, Valentine's Day, etc.

Hey Lovelies!!!

So, let's just be honest. Although, I love my heels they are not always practical. I am often asked if I am ever not wearing heels and the answer is YES! Honestly, the only time you really catch me in heels is at work, date night, church, and possibly if I am having a ladies night. Other than that, comfort is a must. I tip my hat off to those women who can put on a pair of heels and trek the city, or run errands, etc. I am just not that girl and I am absolutely ok with it. Some people have the misconception that "flats" equal boring/dull. NOT TRUE! You can be just as fly in a pair of comfy shoes/flats as you can in sky high heels. Now, I will admit I think if you're going for a sexy vibe, heels are an absolute must. Sorry but that's my style perspective and I am sticking to! Anywho, here is a casual but fun look I wore to work this week. Hope you enjoy! XOXO

The Styling: For those who follow my blog then you know transitional pieces are EVERYTHING in my closet. I turned this summer dress into a fall piece by simply adding a blazer. Because I truly have a sore spot for mixing prints, it was predictable for me to pair this dress with a striped blazer to play up the striped pattern in the dress. However, you definitely can be more subtle with this little dress and pair it with a solid white blazer or even put a bit of edge to it and add a black leather jacket with a pair of funky booties. As, the weather was pretty nice on this particular day, so I was able to forego the tights.

The Occasion: The office (depending on the environment), week night church service, a semi-casual meeting, etc.
