Shift Dress


TGIF Friends! Any big plans for the weekend? Not too much going on here, well for me at least. Brand has a basketball tournament Saturday and then soccer practice on Sunday (not quite sure when he became such an athlete) so he'll be busy, but I'll just be getting stuff done :) 
I've mentioned plenty of times that I'm not really a huge fan of shift dresses, but they are slowly convincing me of there necessity in my wardrobe. I loved the detail of this dress so I thought I would give it a try and I actually loved how it fit. It'll be a great piece to transition into fall as well, so it was worth it.

Neutral Look


My white wide leg pants are one of my absolute favorite items in my closet. I could reach for them for pretty much any occasion and pair them with basically any blouse in my wardrobe, but my favorite way to style them is with an all neutral look. 
The day we took these pictures, it was a bit "cool" (and by cool I mean maybe not 100 degrees), so I jumped at the opportunity to wear my pants as I had been dying to try this outfit out. I love how the bone color of the simple knit tank and long line blazer pairs with the white pants. 
It's a look a will be wearing over and over. Also, I will most definitely be wearing these pants after Labor Day...even though they are white.

I'm fully aware that it is only August and fall is not exactly here yet (especially in Arizona), but I can't help myself from craving fall fashion. 
The denim, the jackets, the layers, the boots...

The Slip Dress


I am a huge fan of the slip dress and while it's always been a style/look I've loved just this year I purchased my first one...and then a second one. There is something so sexy yet simple and relaxed about the look that I just love. The perfect model-off-duty look (a la the infamous Kate Moss). 
While the slip dress makes an appearance every year, it seems this year it is bigger than ever. There are endless ways of making this dress work in both dressing it up and down. 
One of my favorite ways of styling it that I have seen lately is the simple plain white tee fitted perfectly under the slip dress. I'm also dying for cooler weather so that I am able to throw on a leather jacket or duster jacket over the dress and head out for a dinner date. 
Below is some inspiration for styling a slip dress along with some slip dresses I am loving and wouldn't mind adding to my wardrobe. 

Are you girls into the slip dress?
