Trendy Mondays: Little White Dress

While the Little Black Dress may be a year-around, day or night staple – The Little White Dress is a Spring and Summer Must Have in my fashion book.

They’re effortlessly chic, easy to style for any occasion, and can easily take you from errands to the beach to dinner outside at your favorite restaurant.

This little sleeveless shift is the perfect dress as far as I’m concerned. The sweet little button-up collar, retro-inspired shift silhouette, and bold exposed zipper pockets for all your Springtime needs.

Trendy Mondays: White on White

While I recently confessed here that I have trouble keeping my whites, well, white – That doesn’t mean I love them any less. During this time of year there’s nothing more chic than a sleek white on white look.

Somehow it manages to be simultaneously classic and modern – Like a traditional Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O street style look with a current styling twist.

And the perfect way to set off a timeless white on white look is with bold extras like these custom zebra print peep-toe pumps and Vaska crossbody bag from Trendy Mondays.

This little pop of color and print gives the look a little something extra, but still allows the classic white pieces to take center stage.

Have YOU tried white-on-white before? And more importantly… Did you keep it clean? 🙂

Trendy Mondays: Snake Skin Peplum

When it comes to my closet, I have a huge collection of dresses and outerwear, a large number of pants and skirts, and virtually no tops. Why the mismatched amount of separates? I have a terrible time finding tops that I like.

Colors that work for my practically transparent skin tone, silhouettes that are flattering, materials that are suitable {read not see-through} for daytime use…

While the colors and bold snake skin print are what initially caught my eye when I saw this top, what really drew me in was the juxtaposition of the eye-catching print combined with a classic, timeless silhouette.

What’s great about this kind of top is how versatile it is once you’ve added it to your collection. This is a perfect little business casual look for the office – Top, pencil skirt, pumps, and you’re done!

But you can easily take this top from work to the weekend by adding your favorite jeans and comfortable ballet flats {my favorites are on saleCheck them out!}

Trendy Mondays: Camo & Zippers

When you love dresses as much as I do, you tend to amass quite a collection. And then you have to implement shopping rules for yourself such as: “You’re not allowed to ever buy another black dress. Ever.”

And while that may seem harsh, when you see that half of the dress closet {yes, you read that right, dress closet} is black dresses, you understand the necessity for those type of rules.

But in reality, what that means is that I keep an eye out for fun new dresses that are unlike anything else in my closet.

Like this beauty.

There are so many amazing elements to this piece – From bold camo print to a modern mix of fabrics and textures. All of which come together to create a wholly unique dress that’s the ultimate statement piece.

What’s YOUR favorite way to wear camo print?
