Sleeveless Trench Coat.

When I put this ensemble together, I felt both comfortable and totally myself.  You know when you put those pieces together that feel so “you?”  I strutted down the stairs to Christian and was all, “this outfit is so me.”

To which he replied, “it’s a lot of fabric.”

I’m fine with it. I love the t-shirt material of the dress that wraps into a side knot, which looks amazing on its own or with a vest or blazer layered over it.  These sandals come in eight different colors, and with the simple and flattering style I’m (naturally) convinced I need all eight!  I used to wear so much black when I had a more formal workplace, while I’ll always love all black everything, now that I live in Southern California I love wearing breezy, light colors.

  1. I totally agree with you – draped dresses are the best! They are always flattering and comfortable, both wins for me.

  2. I am convinced Aaron and C would be best friends. They could make fun of our outfits all day long! But, I am a fan regardless of the amount of fabric! You look fab!

    1. Absolutely, 100% agree. Thankfully WE are best friends so at least we have each other to say, “ok that outfit is SO YOU.” Ha! XOXO

  3. Love ruched t-shirt dresses! They feel like pajamas and are very flattering. I might have to buy this one. Looks great on you!

  4. Such a gorgeous outfit! You look absolutely stunning.

    Speaking of stunning… I had to get those sunnies! They’re so great, and really affordable. Can’t wait till they arrive!

    Have a fantastic holiday weekend!
