How To Rock Strong Statement Colors In Winter

There seems to be an expectation for our wardrobes to go dark during the winter season. Perhaps grey, black, and navy clothing reflects our feelings about the dreary weather conditions. A great alternative, though, is to bring your own sunshine with yellows or to evoke happiness in shades of orange. Bright statement colors make us happy.

By the way, shades of orange have been having a major moment since 2018. I’m excited to see this color trend hold strong in 2019. From living coral to burnt orange, it’s fair to say that shades of orange have reached IT color status.

Today’s featured dress from Soft Surroundings was a must-have for me because of its beautiful orange-red-brown color. Of course, I also love that it has a boatneck, perfect for draping off the shoulder.

This knit is also ideal for winter because it’s long with long sleeves. Also, its silhouette is perfect for layering over or under. This dress can be styled to suit almost any kind of wintry weather conditions.

Prefer to pack away your dresses during the winter? No worries. There are so many other ways to work statement colors into your winter style. A statement coat is always a good option (see more on that here). Bright sweaters are also cool options (shop some of my favorites on sale here).

The Scarf Print Trend Continues To Be Huge This Year

Scarf prints were a huge trend in 2018. If you were a fan, you’ll be excited to know that the trend is holding strong this year. The updates? Silky scarf prints are getting more colorful. As you can imagine, I’m so here for that.

Zara was a go-to source for scarf print styles last fall. If there’s an item you had your eye on, you might get lucky and get it for about 60% off right now. Remember my favorite style? It’s now on major sale with limited sizes left. I will certainly be rocking that dress into spring because of its perfect-for-spring colors.

Today’s dress is another discounted Zara find. When the price dropped below $20, I couldn’t resist ordering one. It comes in a few difference designs. I gravitated toward this one because it looked like a perfect complement to my . I was right. I’ve been so pleased with how versatile this standout belt has been (see it styled here, here, herehere, and here).

Would you believe it’s been warm enough for me to be outside with no tights nor coat in St. Louis? The temperature has been in the 60s for a minute. But, we’re currently preparing for some serious snowfall today. I fully enjoyed the warm weather while I could.

An Easy Guide To Layering With Dresses

I’m back with another dress layering post because I’m that committed to rocking my dresses all cold season long (see more tips here). And, it is totally doable. Using an , I’m sharing just how easy dress layering is when it’s cold outside.

Layering outfits is an easy way to make a look more visually interesting. So, when it’s necessary to layer, outfits are so much cooler. Layering without adding unnecessary bulk though? That is always the tricky part.

1. Tights are a must

Perfect wintry weather looks begin with tights, especially when wearing dresses. On days that are seriously cold, tights under pants might become necessary too. Under dresses, though, tights add an essential and stylish layer of warmth.

2. Boots are your best friend

From ankle boots to knee-high boots, no shoe can hold down your perfectly layered look like a complementary pair of boots. In this look, I went for my new favorite .

3. A coat (or two) always works

Layering on a coat is an obvious way to stay warm, but a coat can also adds texture, dimension, and hence loads of interest to your look. This season, you can go the extra mile by doubling up on your coats (more on that here).

4. Scarves are essential

A chunky scarf is such an essential layer. It protects your neck (and perhaps even your face and head). With the right scarf, you can add color, print, and texture to your outfit. I went for a monochromatic vibe with my scarf.

Cheers to the Weekend: Restyling a Shirt Dress

Happy Friday! I shot a campaign for a local liquor brand that I love (learn more about that ) recently. I knew I would be taking images for the campaign in the most colorful bar in St. Louis–El Burro Loco. So, I wanted a look that was toned down in color but strong in shape and silhouette. I decided, then, to do a little restyling of my (seen before here) because it met both demands.

Of course, I was instantly drawn to this dress because of its dramatic puff sleeves. I fell more in love with it because it’s so versatile. It has buttons up the front and the sides for all kinds of styling possibilities. For this campaign, I wore the dress like a tunic over leggings and played with the buttons, by leaving them undone in the front and the sides.

Have a wonderful weekend!

How To Get Ready For 3 Summer Events For Under $150

This post is sponsored by Specialty Retailers, Inc. All opinions are my own.

Summer style can sometimes require a lot of preparation. Getting ready can even feel overwhelming because there is no shortage of things to do and occasions to celebrate. The good news is getting all the outfits you need doesn’t have to break the bank. Today, I’m bringing the receipts. This post features 3 fabulous summer looks (head to toe) that I found at for under $150 TOTAL.

I love shopping at off-price stores to get great deals on designer and name brand styles. Gordmans is one of my favorite off-price retailers because they always have the lowest prices. Furthermore, if you ever find an item with a lower price on an item somewhere else, Gordmans will not only match the competitor’s price, they will also give you a $5 Gordmans gift card. This shows that Gordmans is seriously committed to having the best prices.

Summer Style For Less (3 Looks Under $150)

Summer Glam

When I visited Gordmans, I was specifically shopping for a special-occasion outfit. I have a wedding to attend, so I wanted a dress for that. I was excited to see what was in-store because Gordmans always has fun finds and exciting deals. I was thrilled when I stumbled upon this Bebe off-the-shoulder, bell-sleeve, sheath dress for only $29.99 (orig. $129).

How beautiful is the fuchsia color though?

To complete my special-occasion outfit, I found a pair of Nine West blue suede, lace-up sandals for only $19.88 (orig. $108). They are the perfect hue to create a beautiful colorblocked ensemble.

Poolside Style

No summer is complete without a few visits to the pool or the beach. There’s no need to splurge on designer swimsuits when you can find them at Gordmans for less. I literally did a happy dance when I found this Sam Edelman raffia print one-piece swimsuit for $27.98 (orig. $110). This suit is currently available at full price in a few major department stores. I’ve seen it there. I don’t know how Gordmans does it, but I’m glad that they are changing the off-price retailer game.

The print. The plunge neckline. This swimsuit is stunning. By the way, my Hawaiian Tropic coverup, which can also be worn as a wrap dress, is only $6.48 (orig. $49.99) at Gordmans. And, the mirrored aviators? Only $7.99, y’all.

Girls Night/Date Night

Finally, every gal needs a versatile one piece as a go-to summer style. Of course, I have a thing for jumpsuits. So, finding this Bebe jumpsuit at only $29.99 (orig. $119) at Gordmans was an extra special treat. It has stripes and an off-the-shoulder silhouette. Doesn’t get better than that!

To finish this look, I reached for my Nine West sandals, of course.

That’s it! 3 looks for a total of $122.31 plus tax. That’s the kind of fashion mathematics I enjoy. You too? It’s a great time to visit your local . Stop by your local store on July 21 for a special anniversary event. Be sure to enter the  (ends on July 16) for the chance to win a gift card to splurge at the anniversary event.
