1 Dress 3 Looks

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Todays post is all about transitioning from those warmer months to the cooler ones.  I hate buying something to only wear for a season or two.  I really try and buy timeless pieces or pieces that I can wear year long.  So when I looked at this amazing dress in my closet that I had worn once, I knew that this would be the perfect dress for that.

Look 1: Glam and girly

For this HOT Texas summer I opted for some major bling and a sexy pair of heels!  I found these heels on additional 50% clearance at Neiman Marcus Last call and just fell in love, plus Valentino on mega sale it was a NO Brainer that I had to buy them.  I threw in this Jimmy Choo Clutch from T.J. Maxx for a glam girly look, perfect for a wedding or night out with the girls.

Outfit Deets:
Dress: Eliza J (no longer available), similar
Heels: Valentino (last season) similar
Clutch: Jimmy Choo (via T.J. Maxx, old) similar
Necklace: Purple Peridot
Earrings: Purple Peridot

Look 2: Work Appropriate

For the Second look I added a Navy Blazer.  My office is always freezing so I end up wearing an extra layer.  This blazer added a little warmth and some sophistication to my party dress.  I love how it changed the look just enough to give a preppy and sophisticated girly look.

Outfit Deets:
Dress: Eliza J (old) see above for a similar option
Blazer: Target (old), similar
Heels: BCBG (old), similar

Outfit 3: Warm and Cozy

Last I did an outfit for winter.  I love adding some warm tights and booties to any dress, even though it's a whopping 40 degrees outside in the winter, which is cold for me, I still want to feel feminine under all my layers.  So I added a simple white peacoat to fight the cold air but something I can take off once I'm inside since the heat tends to get cranked in the winter.  I absolutely LOVE Old Navy's pea coats, they are trendy yet don't break the bank.  At one point I owned like 5 of them in all different styles and colors.  Since I am posting this in August I couldn't find a link to any of their coats, but once those temps start to drop check their website because they always offer a good sale on them!

Outfit Deets:
Coat: OldNavy (really old), love
Dress: see first outfit post
Shoes: Target (old), similar
tights: Target (old), similar

I hope you enjoy the looks!

Love Always,
