When it comes to colors and fashion rules… I have none. White, black, navy… whatever the color, I wear it all year round. An LBD or LWD, if the fabric is seasonal, I’ll wear it in the winter, spring, summer or fall.
This dress is the perfect seasonal and versatile “little navy dress”, the fabric and cut make it perfect whether it’s cold or warm outside. It’s also a great piece to wear for a night out or to a more formal event. I always have great success in the Lord & Taylor dress department, they have so many amazing dresses for all occassions!
The dress can be paired with a fun clutch (see some cute rainbow ones at the end) or a fancier one, like I did. This clutch is stunning! I love how its fancy yet fun and chic at the same time. The Lucite clasp really modernizes this amazing piece and gives it something a little more special. I also love the touch of blue, it’s a great neutral color, it surprisingly matches most colors!
When it comes to shoes, I’m super picky. I love my designer shoes, as you know, but I can’t always splurge. I was on the hunt for a great pair of black suede heels, when I saw these black suede heels I was so curious if they’d meet my expectations. When I opened the box and saw the quality I was so happy and excited to know that I can finally own a nice black heel for under $100 (my husband may have a been a little more excited than I was :-))! Some fashionistas rule is no suede in the summer… I don’t believe in that rule either, especially when dressing for a formal occasion. If you have a black tie summer wedding, these pass in my book.
What I love about my whole ensemble is that, here when paired with this fabulous faux fur coat, I’m ready for a winter outing. Unfortunately, this exact coat is sold out, but take a look below at some similar ones I found.
A cream faux fur coat is a basic, it can be paired with so many outfits such as a t-shirt and jeans or with something more formal. When this look is worn without the coat, I’m ready for a spring formal outing! As I always state, versatile pieces are key to building an amazing and wearable wardrobe. I can’t afford to have pieces hanging in my closet that I don’t get much use out of taking up my precious closet real estate :-).
