Dress: Guess by Marciano, Shoes: ShoeMint, Clutch: Style&co, Ring: Kate Spade

A couple of weeks ago I had my college version of “prom.” My school planned a dance on a yacht and since it was during prom season I of course treated it like a real senior prom, minus the over the top glitz and glamour dress. Instead I wanted something classy and elegant yet still very modern. I found this dress at the Guess by Marciano store and it was love at first sight. (It was the first dress I tried on when I went shopping, like when does that ever happen?) I fell in love with the material because it was thick and hugged my shape perfectly. Since being on a boat is always really chilly the long sleeves were a major plus because I wouldn’t have to worry about carrying a coat. Wearing a dress with cutouts was kind of a huge step for me. I tend to dress a little more on the conservative side but these cutouts weren’t very revealing. This dress allowed me to show just enough skin while still being pretty covered up. I of course wore my amazing ShoeMint heels. I danced for like two hours straight in these suckers. Seriously, thank you ShoeMint!!!

Here are two pictures from that night. Sorry the photo quality is terrible, iPhone cameras at night just don’t work well together. And yes, this is my boyfriends blog debut! Meet Kevin (:

Transition Your Black Summer Dress Into Fall

Dress: Element, Cardigan: Forever 21, Boots: City Classified, Socks: H&M, Clutch: Kate Spade NY, Sunnies: Chloe

Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to show you how I transitioned my little black summer dress from this post and made it appropriate for fall. By adding a chunky knit cardigan and some booties with socks scrunched at the top you can make any summer dress last into the coming season. I kept the colors neutral in this outfit, but I can’t wait to add colored tights and a textured stripe sweater over this dress for the winter. If you don’t have a black dress that is light weight and preferably spaghetti strap then I highly recommend purchasing one! Trust me, there a tons of ways you can style it and it will be in your closet all year round.  I am all about versatile pieces here people!

The weather has barely started to cool down in southern California and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin and like me on Facebook! —>

LBD: Summer Version

Dress: Element via my best Girlyfriend, Shoes: D via TjMaxx, Jewelry: Gifted via Boyfriend

This summer heat is starting to be unbearable. So when I when out to dinner and a movie with my boyfriend I knew I wanted to wear something very light and comfortable. Well, this is my version of the little back dress for a date night during summer. Paired with neutral wedges and fun bracelets was the way to go. And of course my hair in a high pony. I think it’s time for a haircut. Long hair and summer do not always agree. I also love the pop of color from my nail polish. Great deal at Target!
