3 Looks 1 Mesh Dress

Lately, I've seen this mesh dress everywhere. I first saw it on Kim Kardashian at the MTV VMA's and now in stores. I've seen in red, white and my personal favorite black. I thought it would be a great idea to show you how versatile this piece can be. I put together 3 looks styled completely differently.

Since its still summer, I thought a swimsuit look would be ideal. A mesh dress is one of my favorite layer pieces for a fun poolside outfit. You get the coverage you want but still get a little sneak to what's underneath.

A dress doesn't necessarily need to be worn as a dress. I paired this little number with a pair of distressed shorts. I accessorized this outfit with a double buckle belt, a wide fedora hat, and super tall platform heels. With these accessories and shorts this dress has a fun boho vibe.

Be a little daring and wear just your bra and high waited panties under the mesh dress. Layer a floral print duster to elevate the look. The little black dress never looked so edgy and sexy.

The Corset

Looking to give your closet a little update? You may want to look for a corset. The corset has made a big comeback this season. Its less burlesque dancer and more street wear. You see it worn over almost everything from white tees to over-sized button downs. The corset comes in many styles: denim, lace-up, a thick leather design, and strappy details. It's a sexy staple and it's here to stay.

This has to be one of my favorite trends for spring. I love that it defines my waist and adds a feminine touch to anything I pair it with. I styled this lovely jumpsuit with a corset belt and a mesh bra. I instantly felt sexy in this combination. I opted for a relaxed shoe and wore my double strap sandals. Overall this outfit had a hint of couture fashion (well at least in my head I thought so).

Simplicity is Everything

Simple is not always boring. It can be chic too! These days I've been gravitating tours comfortable clothes. I love sporty outfits that I can dress up and girl up.

I'm keeping things simple today in this lovely cropped jumpsuit and cardigan set from Rebdolls. This set is comfy, versatile, and stretchy- all the things I love in my clothes.  Rebdolls has great collections that consist of effortlessly chic separates. I like that I can wear the cardigan with a tank top and jeans and the jumpsuit with a moto jacket and sneakers. 

​This outfit was simple to put together. I tied a skinny scarf around my neck like a choker and threw on a pair of single strap heels. I pulled my hair back to show off the scarf and put on a little eye liner and lipstick. I love that I combined all these simple pieces to create a chic outfit.

Culottes?

Culottes were a short girl's nightmare once upon a time ago. Now I feel anyone can wear them with just a simple trick. I tend to break fashion rules because I can and you can too! One of those rules are that short women should not wear culottes because they can make you look shorter. The trick is so simple- the best way to add height is with a pair of heels or wedges. The heels elongate your legs and balance out the length of the culottes.

I've always been curious about culottes. I love the wide flowy design and they can be super casual or can also be dressed up. I instantly was drawn to this jumpsuit from ZARA. I scored on a great deal during their semi-annual sale. Only $7.99! It's not available online, so I found two options down below that I know you'll love.

I wore this beauty recently at a spring collection preview for James Jeans. The event was fun and casual. I wore the jumpsuit with a denim jacket and a pair of perspex heels for an edgy touch. I kept the accessories simple with a watch and dainty necklaces.

Lipstick on my Shirt

Welcome 2017! I know I'm a little behind but I'm happy to say this is my 1st blog of the year. I'm soo excited for this New Year. I have many goals I want to accomplish and do so many new things. This year I also want to step up my game with my style. I really want to focus on pieces with character. What does that mean? I want to find great pieces that are edgy and add drama to my look.

This blouse is definitely doing its job, it adds that drama quality I want to my overall outfit. I love the cape design witch sasses up an ordinary button down blouse.

This is not a new top: it was given to me last year from JCPenney. When I wore it, I wore a jacket over it. You couldn't see the cape silhouette. This time I wore black skinny jeans and pointy toe heels to have the focus on the blouse. I completed the look with cat eye sunglasses and a lovely statement necklace. Unfortunately, this top has sold out but I found similar options down below that have that fun cape design.

I'm really excited excited to show you brand new outfits with a little more creativity and fun this year.
