I’m sorry I haven’t been around all week, it was crazy busy with work and I am also hosting an event next Saturday in LA. It’s been taking up so much of my time, but it will well be worth it. I really can’t wait!
This post was inspired by a piece I picked up at the TopShop shopping preview at The Grove. I love the color and print of this body conscious dress. Emerald was announced as the color of the season by Pantone, so I was happy to pick up a piece to add to my wardrobe.
It is somewhat of a tight dress but it’s still conservative; long sleeve and crew neck. I definitely recommend it for all shapes and sizes – it’s a flattering piece. There are so many ways to style it but I’m always a fan of layering with vests – jean vests, fur vest, you name it. I picked up the jean vest from Loehmanns for $20 – total score since it’s Current / Elliot. My new boots were also a great purchase since it’s end of the season. I love Chloe and these are by their diffusion line, SEE by Chloe.
If you read my blog often you know I definitely do not take myself too seriously and I am really a goof! We had a little fun at the end of our shoot trying to perfect the ‘jump’ pose. HA. Sometimes you just have to be a little silly, you know?!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend. I have plans to lay on the beach with friends today and bask in the sun (yay!), then an amazing wedding event for bloggers and media at the Bel Air Bay Club, Los Angeles tomorrow. My amazing brother bought me Lakers ticket, so that will be tomorrow night – I can hardly wait! I haven’t been to a Lakers game since a little girl. Follow me on Instagram at @stylewaxpoetic or comment below so we can stay in touch. I’d love to get to know you too. XO
