Two Ways: Embroidered White Dress
Jun 13, 2013
For Cocktails. Why a trench in June? Because a white dress and the potential for rain do not mix. This Burberry is my dream trench, but I think my first car cost less than that, so how about this less expensive J.Crew Trench (my favorite) or this London Fog, instead?
I absolutely adore this orange clutch, sadly, it’s sold out. However, this Banana Republic tube clutch or this under-$50 faux leather clutch are good options as well. And since we have an orange clutch, we need an orange ring to pull it all together. If this one is out of your price range, this inexpensive faceted stone ring is nice too.
The pierced leather on this sandal is chic and summery. Though the heel might be a bit high for me. I also like these tan shoeboots, but decide they would be better for the fall.
For the hair, I would wear it down, provided the weather cooperates. If not, up in a low twist. For the makeup, I would wear a rose blush and some sable eye shadow and brown liner.
For the Office. A belted cardigan over a sundress is a great choice for recess days when you have meetings or casual Mondays. If you work in a less conservative office, this is a summery outfit that can brighten your mood on a dreary work day.
I like the mix of navy and yellow for this outfit. You can wear the belt over the top if you need structure or underneath for color and definition. If yellow isn’t your thing, and you would rather have a neutral, try this dark tan skinny belt with a bow. If you’d rather wear your color in the cardigan, I like this deep emerald from Gap.
Coach is really hitting the mark with their legacy collection. I love this bag, and the Candace, and the Tanner, and the huge Weekender. Frankly, they’re all great. I vastly prefer them to the fabric totes. And if you sign up for Coach’s website, they send you 20-percent-off coupons every so often.
The earrings for this outfit might be my favorite thing in the whole set. I love the delicate wire work and the scale of them. I selected them over these Bittar hoops, and I think I made the right choice. You could also go with simple pearls.
