This Dior-Inspired Print from H&M is Seriously SO GOOD!

As soon as I saw this dress hanging on the rack at H&M I just knew I had to have it. Earlier this spring I had the good fortune of perusing Dior’s pop-up shop in the meatpacking district where a similar toile print was featured heavily in the collection. I’m a gal who loves a good designer look for less, so you can only imagine how I excited I was to get my hands on this pretty little frock. I love how the print is bold, yet subtle. But what I really can’t get over is how light and airy it feels. I can already tell it’ll be my go-to piece for those hot and sticky summer days on the horizon.

I recently wore this outfit to an early dinner with the family and paired it with a simple straw hat and matching bag – both enduring summer staples – and one of my favorite pairs of espadrilles that I scooped up for a song last summer on the clearance rack.

About the Fit:
This dress is true-to-size and has a bit of elastic in the waist to give it a decent amount of stretch. The straps are also adjustable, so I’d say it’s hard to go wrong with this one. The just below-the-knee length might be a little tricky for shorter gals (for reference, I’m 5’7″), but nothing a cute pair of heels (and perhaps even a trip to the tailor) can’t fix. What impressed me most is how the buttons don’t gape at the top even with my massive (to me, at least) nursing boobs. There’s even a hidden snap just above the waist for an extra bit of coverage.

Hey Peeps!

Spring has sprung, and I’ve finally come out of hibernation. Unfortunately, the temps are still in the 40s in my neck of the woods. So I’m staying cozy in one of my favorite sweater dresses, plus a little faux fur on top. I’ve always loved the preppy look of varsity sweaters (also known as tennis or cricket sweaters), and have collected a few different iterations over the years.

CC Loves: Pearls!

Fall 2017 Fashion Trend: Pearl Embellishments{H&M Pearl Earrings, ZARA Pearl Embellished Top & Shoes, C. Wonder Multi-Strand Pearl Necklace (I also own this similar one from J. Crew and LOVE it)}

Earlier this year, I made a video on how to elevate your wardrobe and make any outfit instantly appear more luxurious with a few simple style hacks. One of the tips I shared was to add a strand (or three or four!) of pearls. It’s a styling trick that’s served me well over the years, and I’m so happy that pearls are finally having their moment in the sun on a larger scale this season. It seems that every major retailer has found a way to incorporate pearls, and I’m absolutely loving it. And the best part is that they’re popping up in unexpected ways that feel young, fresh, and dare I say… cool?!

If you haven’t gotten the memo before now, pearls are definitely a huge fall fashion trend. Below are some pretty pearly pieces (try and say that three times fast!) that I’ve got my eye on this season… and so should you!
