Not your normal night out ensemble


Good afternoon my loves! Today I am bringing to the blog a seriously fun & dressy look, the highlight of which is that it is completely different from the norm.  This because the cut of the shirt not only goes with the crop-top & high-waist trend, but the sleeve length & shape gives it a distinctive look.   Then combining it with a pair of silk, wool, or linen wide-leg pants in an A-line shape, adds to the unique overall appearance.

The best part is, this gorgeous shimmery crop top is on sale for $25! And is currently available in all sizes.  And it is also completely versatile in that you can make the look even more dressy with a high-waisted skirt in the matching print or a solid black, or you can easily make it more casual with a pair of skinny or wide-leg jeans.

I highly recommend you give this look a try as it is seriously the perfect ensemble for date night, a cocktail party, or a night out with your friends & it is sure to get you some attention!

Wishing you a wonderful and productive rest of your week! xoxo ♥♥

Every girl needs a little black dress, and truthfully, one is never enough and you can never have too many.  They are perfect for nearly any occasion!  Today, I am posting about my favorite LBD by Catherine Malandrino.  It has delicate pleats that add interest to the skirt, but the dark gray metallic fitted bodice with perfectly detailed embroidery, is the real reason why I’m in love with it.   To play off of the silvery gray in the bodice, I paired it with a gorgeous pair of silver fabric pumps from Badgley Mischka.  Then, to add some fun & personality to the ensemble, I combined it with a handmade clutch from ThaiHandbags.

Now, the best part of a LBD is that you can easily dress it up, or dress it down.   A quick way to dress it down simply by adding a faded & distressed jean jacket that fits you perfectly.  Then you can keep the pumps or if you are touring the town, you can ditch them for a pair of cute flats for a look that is not only instantly cool & casual, but comfortable too.

Enjoy the beautiful summery-fall weather this weekend loves!

♥♥ I linked the dress on the Lord & Taylor website where it is on permanent markdown but only available in a few sizes.  I also linked the BlueFly website where it rotates between full-price & 30% off but is available in all sizes.
