Seeing Stripes {Asos Striped Party Dress}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Asos Striped Party Dress {ASOS Striped Party Dress, PRADA Sunglasses, H&M Earrings, ALDO Glitter Clutch, J. CREW Glitter Heels (similar)}

All dressed up, and no place to go… yet!

But with a dress this fun and colorful, can you really blame me?! One of my fashion rules of thumb is that if I run across a fabulous dress, I get it even if I don’t have a particular event to wear it to right away. Because let’s face it, the worst time to shop is when you’re under a deadline. This school of thought has served me well over the years, and I’m rarely ever pressed for what to wear for special occasions anymore.

About the Fit:
This one runs true to size, and the fit and flare shape makes it flattering on a variety of silhouettes. Tea length dresses can be tricky, but this one works on my 5’7″ frame. If you’re petite, you may have to get it hemmed unless you prefer to wear it as a floor length gown. The bottom is very poufy thanks to a few layers of tulle – perfect for twirling the night away with someone special!

Child’s Play {Anthropologie Jumpsuit}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Colorful Anthropologie Jumpsuit{ANTHROPOLOGIE Jumpsuit, H&M Earrings, NYC Street Vendor Sunglasses, ZARA Slides}

Truth be told, I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. While I absolutely look forward to fall and the idea of breaking out my favorite sweaters and tights, I can help but cling to these last few weeks of summer. I’m definitely dragging my feet in terms of making a full-on wardrobe switch. And can you really blame me for wanting to keep awesome outfits like this crazy colorful Anthropologie jumpsuit in rotation for as long as I can?

About the Fit:
If you’re daring, it’s hard to go wrong with this one in terms of size. The crazy bold print might overwhelm some petite frames, but I’ve never been one to shy away from a crazy print (and neither should you!). I went with a size 10 to allow extra room in the chest area. But if you’re a smaller cup size, you could definitely size down.

J. Crew Postcard Prints

When J. Crew rolled out this postcard print, I just knew I had to have it. I took a gamble and waited a week or two for a sale to crop up (because let’s face it, who really pays full price at J. Crew?), and my patience paid off when I scored this top on the cheap! I didn’t get so lucky with the skirt as it sold out before going on sale, but luckily good old Nordie’s came through in a pinch. The two pieces together make a pretty bold statement, and I got tons of compliments while taking these photos. But you can definitely tone down the look by wearing them separately.

About the Fit:
Both the top and skirt fit true-to-size. The top is made of a substantial stretchy cotton and is a great length for wearing both tucked and untucked. Crew necks can be tricky if you have a larger bust (I usually opt for v-necks and scoop necks), but this tee was just too cute to pass up. The skirt hits right below the knee on my 5’7″ frame, and it also comes in petite (and tall) sizing.
