With adorable prints, fun or solid colors, halter or one-shoulder designs, this trend is inevitably versatile. Perfect for hot nights or warm days.

Say hello to my Twilight dress!


I received this lovely dress courtesy of Stop Staring, and it has already become one of my favorites. The bengaline stretch material makes it very comfortable, and the sophisticated feminine look make it perfect for pretty much any occasion. I love the dotted sheer fabric which compliments the sweetheart neckline. It includes a black leather belt for your waist, with a fitted pencil skirt design that adds to the classic style of vintage fashion. Looks great paired with open-toe lace heels, or red pumps for a nice punch of color. This dress requires no accessories since the retro-glam feel to it gives it more than enough personality.

What’s your occasion…

Combining two or more bright colors is a fun way to to brighten an outfit especially around summertime. If you’re uneasy wearing too much color, try blending a neutral outfit with colorful  accessories like orange heels or a bright blue purse. Color blocking can de done to a dressy outfit, or kept casual for a fun weekend look.

This outfit features one of my favorite colors,bright and cheery yellow pumps, which can easily be paired with a bright blue top for a fun contrast. The off-the-shoulder top and peep-toe pumps add a fun and feminine flair, while the creased two-toned skinny jeans keep the look casual and relaxed.

Which are your favorite colors to play with when it comes to fashion? Do you color block your looks?!

How to wear lace tights

This weeks outfit revolves around lace tights.

Lace tights are a  pretty stylish accessory and can be paired with different outfits since they range in color and patterns. They’re great for windy weather, and some are thin enough to be worn around summertime. Pair them with a skirt, dress, long tunic, or shorts.

Depending on your work environment, you can wear these tights as long as the colors are muted and the pattern isn’t too crazy.

This outfit is pretty neutral with the exception of a pretty teal blouse. The khaki skirt looks great with the sheer thigh-high mesh tights as well as with the more vintage looking pattern tights on the right. The taupe sling-back heels polish up the look, and pull together a sophisticated and fun outfit.

For a casual look involving a neutral outfit, add a touch of color by pairing it with grey or burgundy lace tights. The green dress is perfect for a warm day and can be paired with either set of tights when there’s a summer breeze. The gold flats add a flirty, feminine look and are perfect when you’re going for comfortable chic.
