Something Blue With Violet Ray

Outfit Details: Violet Ray Blue Spike Hasp Satchel, Halogen Fit & Flare Dress, Olson Pointy Studded T-strap Flat, Urban Outfitters Sunglasses (similar), Madewell Pave Spiked Pendant Layering Necklace (on sale!)

One of the most flattering silhouettes, the fit and flare, just so happens to be one of the most trendy shapes for this season. This style dress is fitted through the bodice and then flares out into a fuller skirt. I have a really short torso and have trouble with shift dresses, or any style that doesn't offer some sort of shape. Which is why I tend to lean towards fit and flares for the summer season. While browsing in Nordstrom over the weekend I stumbled upon the Halogen section of dresses and skirts. I spotted this printed dress and couldn't help but snatch it up after I tried it on and realized how perfect it would be for work. 

This dress runs true to size and feels so comfortable and can be easily dressed up with chunky statement jewelry for a cocktail event. For this outfit, I decided to mix in some shades of blue with this Violet Ray Satchel to create an overall classy feel. This handbag is so unique and easy to carry. Personally, I love the little spikes along the handles. It's so stylish! This bag comes in Taupe and Brown.

I wore this outfit over the weekend for a quick little brunch with my family. We stopped into our favorite cafe afterwards, Cloveberry in Sparta, and picked up some delicious peach tea. We sat outside overlooking Main street and enjoyed the light breeze. It was so refreshing. Hope you had a great weekend and cheers to a speedy full week ahead.
