Stepping Out

There's nothing like a great summer night out. When there's clear skies and a cool breeze blowing it's always going to be a good night!  The scene in Atlanta always allows you to take advantage and dress up a little too! Whether you're dining out in Buckhead or catching a movie out in Brookhaven, it's fun to get out and let your hair down just a little bit!  

Two of my favorite colors for a night out are always a bold red and a classic black, so I'm showcasing both of these sexy new looks today! 

Lets go red to begin! I LOVE this curve hugging dress! It's a good length so not too over the top sexy where you can't wear it for a work party, but the curves are highly accentuated for that bit of mystery. The off shoulder look is perfect for a hot summer night. It brings an heir of drama and offers up a unique style. Not your basic red dress.  We don't do basic over here. No ma'am! I paired this look with my favorite new pair of Christian Louboutins. Red bottoms with a cherry on top! I love a red bottom with a red dress. So chic! This look is also partnered with the summer "it girl" bag, not convenient if you're carrying small items, they will fall right out! But for a night on the town where you're carrying a lighter load, this is quite perfect! The beautiful thing about this dress is that you can accessorize it up heavily, like I choose to with a bold statement necklace, or you can go bare and it still looks lovely.

Now on to the little black dress! I have so many black dresses, to add another to the collection it's gotta be unique and worth the space in my closet. This dress checks all of the boxes. The slits! The sleeves! The shoulders! THE DRAMA!!! Oh, I love this dress. Form fitting and flattering on the hips, a perfect neckline for a bold necklace (hello my friend, your transitioned from red to black without batting an eye you little minx!) I love that necklace, in case you haven't noticed, it's quite versatile! The sleeves on this dress are what you want to write home about. They are trendy, because everything right now is about the bell sleeve, BUT the slits in the sleeve make it unique. Everyone isn't wearing this dress honey, YOU ARE. And you're KILLING IT! I chose to pair it with a trusty pair of wedges and they work nicely but really, any heel will do! This dress plays well with others and it's a show stopper without needing sequins. Dress it up for a big event! Wear it as is for dinner. Sold!

Parisienne Summer

Its been a while since I've been in the beautiful, fashion-forward city of love and lights. Paris. One of my absolute FAVORITE cities to explore! The shopping, the food, the museums, the ambiance...the shopping! 

When I found this beauitful striped, off-the-shoulder summer dress I knew I had to have it. It reminds me of all things Parisian. Black and white stripes are signature. The bare shoulders and body hugging fit of the dress provide a little sexiness and mystery. I'm obsessed with any type of ruffle this summer and this dress doesn't skip out on that charm either! It is both sexy and comfortable, making it perfect for an evening out on the town, quite like Paris! 

 I paired the look with these adorable black satin Chanel pumps with bows on the toes for that added bit of flair and luxury, and of course my new Louis Vuitton Double V handbag, which is almost sold out worldwide, by the way. If you're in love with it, you better score one soon or forever hold your peace!  

When you have a dress that is a bit understated, it's a great opportunity for some of your luxury pieces to shine! Hence the double dose of Louis and Chanel. It's such an easy and breezy piece that it can hold its own with both high end staples as anchors!  

The only thing missing from this look is a clever hat. A nice straw summer hat would be very nice with this look! A raspberry beret perhaps? Or a dangling earring! What would you add to this look to make it your own?

Summer Shandy

On the record, my favorite color is yellow. Light, bright and beautiful yellow. For me it's the color of two things I love: summertime and happiness. One of my favorite drinks of summer is Summer Shandy beer. It's craft, but refreshing with its bold infusion of lemon. Ugh, I'm thirsty just thinking about it! But, I have to behave otherwise my summer bikini bod will take off faster than Atlantans from work on a Friday afternoon! 😂 However, one of the reasons I like Summer Shandy is the bottle in comes in. The label is that beautiful, bright, inviting shade of yellow that's guaranteed to be a good time. 

When I saw this beautiful sundress I thought, THIS screams summer...in the most delicious way! It's light and breezy and flows back with every blow of the wind. It's thin, but double layered so you can't see through it, but you won't swelter in it. On this day it was 89 degrees outside, not a cloud in the sky! I survived!  

I love the tassel details on the shoulder ties. It's a very simple sundress and these tassels are just interesting enough to give the dress a fun hint of character and detail.  

I paired this look with one of my favorite pairs of wedges. They have bright, multicolored stiching in green, pink, blue and of course that perfect hue of yellow. They are so much fun to pair with just about anything, but I especially love how they compliment this beautiful dress. Such a playful and pretty summery touch!
