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.

How to shop summer sales like a pro

1. Shop pieces that work year round

Fall and winter are right around the corner, so keep an eye out for pieces that you can wear now and style for fall later. I love this from Mango because I can rock it right into fall. See the dress featured before here.

2. Stock up on essentials for next year

Getting wardrobe basics and essentials on mega discount is always a win because you know you will use them. So, stock up when it makes sense to do so.

3. Research to maximize your savings

The only thing that beats a good sale is a better sale. Be aware of sale-on-sale discount codes, store reward programs, and price adjustment policies, and use that information to maximize your savings.
