Tropical Print

Dress: Dresslily (c/o)
Crossbody Bag: 88 Handbags (c/o)
Shoes: Sammydress (c/o)
Watch: JORD (c/o)
Doesn't this dress remind you of summer? Sorry not sorry! I actually love to wear floral and summer prints like this all year round. It brings a sense of summer throughout the year. Hence, I was really excited to get this dress from Dresslily. And it's a midi dress too! Double yay for that!

Even though the print is summer-y and most would think of styling it casually, I wanted to dress it up with my favorite pair of heels from Sammydress. Meanwhile, the crossbody bag from 88 Handbags provided the right touch of fun, so the outfit isn't too dressy! The tan accessories definitely made the tropical prints stand out, don't they?

No matter what the fashion rules say, I like breaking my tropical printed pieces any time of the year. How would you transition this print for the colder season?

Loren Hope Fall 2016 Collection

It's no secret that I love accessories and jewelries. These are my go-to when I need to dress up a little and an accessory or two can get the job done on a whim! Personal style bloggers will probably relate to this - there are some days wherein we just want to put on a tee and denim jeans. But adding a statement jewelry or accessory can instantly elevate the look. You can look polished without trying. For this reason, Loren Hope has caught my eye. I first found out about the brand when I saw some of their pieces on Instagram. 

Even though I love a good statement piece, I like elegant pieces that make a statement without being too bold or in-your-face with the designs. For their fall collection, I find myself drooling over every piece. But I've included just some of my top favorites for you to be inspired by!

Earrings: Rosegal (c/o)

In my recent VIPme post, I featured a fun and bright colored dress that would be perfect for day and casual wear. Today, I am showcasing a dressier look with a crochet midi dress. I was drawn to this dress because of the fabric - crochets and laces have always been among my favorite types of fabric to wear. The flowy nature of the bottom of this dress also provides that fun little twist so it is not too formal or dressy! This is also part of their Autumn/Winter collection so if you want to dress up for the season, they have plenty of options to choose from.
