The first Monday of the new year has me feeling all the feels when it comes to possibilities. The possible journeys that can be taken. The possible memories that can be made. The possible growth of my blog following. Perhaps a new home? My dreams are endless. But one thing that I know for certain, is how emotional I became when I put on this new dress!
First of all, I'm not a big dress kinda gal.
From years wearing a uniform and then me owning and managing my social media marketing company, there is seldom an occasion for me to wear what I would call a "business" type dress. Now, a cocktail dress is another matter and I have several of those in my closet, but this new dress from Ann Taylor is something special. I knew it from the moment I saw it on a favorite blogger.
First and foremost, it's Houndstooth. I mean, come on, of course I love the print. I own a Houndstooth Blazer that I love, as well as a Houndstooth Coat so adding a dress to the mix is a perfect choice. And she is very versatile. Here I have her style with a designer belt and a pair of ankle strap heels for a great evening look when the temps start to warm up again.
Another great spring/summertime look is pairing this fabulous print with pops of red like these Red Booties and this amazing new Michael Kors SoHo handbag.
I love that this dress is cut on the bias so it has a fabulous drape to it. It runs true to size and I ordered a size 6. I am 5'8 so for a tall gal the length is great. If you're 5'5 or shorter I would go with the petite size.
In this look I hiked the dress up about two inches and then added a belt to cover the newly created hem. It worked really well and the dress now looks a bit shorter so I paired it with some Black high heeled, thigh high boots.
The most fabulous of pairings is of course, with this amazing Houndstooth Coat that I purchased last year to wear in Aspen during a planned ski trip. It looks fantastic with the dress and just gives it a chic, upscale look.
So many ways to wear her, and so many places that she would work. I plan on starting to do seminars again once the vaccine has been widely distributed so this will be a perfect dress for that. Or for a Saturday Ladies Brunch. Or even a spring wedding. It's super chic and I am very happy to report ON SALE RIGHT NOW for 40% Off with code FRESHSTART.
