i love when a traditionally considered 'fall winter color' is used for spring summer. these gorgeous shades of burgundy make me so happy. i love to invest in pieces and if i can wear them year round then even better. the calyx slip dress and the giada forte shirt dress are two perfect examples.
so, the shirt dress i absolutely love as a 'trench' too. the color is incredible and the shimmer just adds to the summer vibe. the slip dress is organic silk that has been hand dyed using flowers, fruit and bark. stunning.
i decided to layer up some metal beads and gorgeous drop earrings with a pop of green (available souchi aspen)
and, if i'm styling it then you know a hat needs to be involved.
the dress can be buttoned up completely and the banded full sleeve adds a relaxed vibe. add, the krewe orleans blinker shades and you're set.
for spring/summer why not add a black glossy flip flop. or, if you're like me you'll want a lil heel height so how about these.
the slip dress i love with our wilkins vest in starfish with the alanis boot. i am in love with this giada forte snake skin gold pouch bag.
