Moody Florals

transitional-style

There is still no let-up in this heatwave that is sweeping all of Southern California and can I tell you I am enjoying every minute of it?  Because that means I can wear this flirty summer dress with the prettiest floral painting there is from my latest collaboration with fashion forward brand STAYING SUMMER.

Although I am a wee bit disappointed because the sleeveless halter did not look as extreme (maybe because I sized up to large) as what is shown on their website,  I am nevertheless so happy with the fit, shape and length of this cute dress which can be worn for work and fun.  Plus how it can be transformed into something more Fall- and work-appropriate by just throwing a blazer or my ever-reliable denim jacket.

Still Summer

white-floral-lace-up-back-cut-away-swing-dress

Fall may be just around the corner (this Thursday to be exact!) but I will always be in that Summer state of mind, especially now that I was introduced to this fun and chic global brand STAYING SUMMER.  And I can’t be any happier to open another three-part collaboration with this global destination for the fashion forward crowd for Summer and beyond!

Since I started blogging, I always welcomed the idea of transitioning an outfit to the next season.  And I believe the challenge in wearing this flirty floral swing dress lies in making it more Fall- and street-friendly which I just did by layering it with my ever-reliable black cotton camisole which I wear underneath anything.

Aside from the floral prints and the fabric, I simply can’t get enough of the sexy details of this dress like its hi-lo hemlines and the lace-ups at the side making it perfect for the beach, poolside and party.  So expect to see this super versatile dress sometime again this Fall as I could also see wearing it with either booties or OTKs plus a cardigan – the possibilities are really endless!
