Sweet in Suede
I added a blazer, which along with a jacket is my favorite layering piece. The fact that it doesn't button makes it look really effortless, so don't reach for anything too structured if you want to achieve that look. You can even just grab a cardigan you already own to pair with it. The dusty rose color is pretty next to a neutral shade, like in the dress. Neutral dresses (and all neutral clothes) are like a blank canvas, so look for those if you want to get creative with additional pieces. I went with other shades of pinks and browns to unify the accessories and the clothes. It's more interesting to play with different shades and textures, but keeping them in the same color family ensures nothing will clash.
Okay, sorry if that tugged on your heart strings, but now we can get back to the fashion! The brown shade that has the logo printed on it matches the dress so well, but the contrasting tan leather makes the bag stand out against the darker colors in the look. This color palette reminds me of classic Louis Vuitton, too. But, if you don't have any designer bags, don't worry because there are many great purses that can provide the same effect! Find a bag that has different fabrics or colors, or something that goes with your look. This dress would even look great with a floral bag or any type of printed purse...have fun with it!
I also grabbed a pair of brown sunnies while heading out the door, and they were definitely needed the day I got these pictures!
I always wear jewelry but I haven't really talked about it. I tend to go through phases, and lately I have been keeping things minimal, but I wanted a bit more of a statement in this look. The outfit just needed something more because the dress was plain, the blazer was plain, and I like to be a little extra. Grab a statement necklace if you feel your look needs elevated, or even layer a bunch of little necklaces for a dainty appearance. Even swapping out the necklace for a big pair of earrings would be a fun alternative! Jewelry is a great way to make looks more personal, especially if you tend to wear monogramed pieces, or things with sentimental value. Never underestimate the power of jewelry!
I feel like I have been talking a lot, but I can't leave out the shoes! I always call these loafers, but they are technically mules because they are backless. Whatever you want to call them, you have to call them comfortable. They literally slip right on! They have a menswear inspired feel to them, but the fact that they are a baby pink adds a touch of femininity. These shoes are perfect for a trip to the mall or at the office because they read professional and put together.
Well, I have said all I have to say! As always, look through your closet AND through your jewelry to find pieces that are inspired by this look. It was super easy to throw together; just some basic pieces and fun accessories. Of course, if you need a reason to do some shopping, I always have links below! Happy Closet Combing!
