Now I know when you first see the title you might think, is she for real and I have to assure you that this is not a joke, I am for real for real! In the fashion world it's very common now to wear lingerie, pajamas and robes as part of your wardrobe and in my opinion looks great if done right so why not a nightgown.
As promised I’m sharing another look from my shoot modeling pieces from M Concept Shop on South Street in Philadelphia, PA. My previous post I shared a look that is summer perfect, if you haven’t read it yet go take a look. The pieces for this look was a beautiful skirt and blouse that are definite head turners.
I had the pleasure of working with a phenomenal female photographer last week to style some pieces for a local boutique here in Philadelphia. Taylor who goes by @mama.photog on Instagram asked me to model this shirt dress, which was just one of the many outfits I had the pleasure of wearing, so make sure you look out for the continuation on my next blog when I share another look.
If there’s one thing that I live by and think without a doubt every woman should have in their closet, and that’s a blazer. It’s so perfect for just about every look that you can’t go wrong, which is why I’m surprised that I haven’t had a white one in my wardrobe all of this time. They are literally my uniform for my everyday look.
The season of warmer weather is finally here which means more opportunities to wear dresses. It’s also the time that more special occasions are taking place that you find yourself attending and needing something to wear. When I do make a purchase I keep in mind that what I’m buying is a versatile piece that can be worn more than once.
I found this pleated dress at Ross and I loved the color and the embroidery of the flowers at the neck of the dress. I really was sold on this dress outside of the great price, but because it had pockets which is always a major win for me, dressed up or down they will always look chic! For my shoes I paired with my denim flowered sandals that I pulled from my closet that went perfect with this dress. You don’t have to also buy an entire look, shop your closet for those hidden treasures.
What I love about this pleated dress is that it can be worn for a dressed down daytime look with wedge sandals or flats for a baby shower or even just for a spring day. And it can be dressed up with heels for a date night or evening party. A few great accessories would be a pair of earrings and a clutch bag to complete this look for evening and switch out the clutch for a crossover bag for day time.

What’s your favorite way to wear a pleated dress for summer?
Who doesn’t love a maxi skirt, they are so perfect for spring and summer. Maxi skirts tend to be one of my favorite because they are so fashionable and come in so many different styles making it easy to find one that matches your personality. They are without a doubt a wardrobe staple that are easy to style with anything and are comfortable to wear, so if you don’t have one yet, run don’t walk to go get you one!
Dresses are a great go to now that the weather is warmer. I love simple dresses that I don’t have to do much to just put them on and go. Which is what I love about this look, so easy breezy to wear and look cute all at the same time.
It doesn’t get any easier than this simple dress. You know how I’m all about working with what’s in your closet when you can and that’s exactly what I’ve done with this look. I’ve had this dress for a long time, but I still love it because although it’s simple it hasn’t gone out of style.
There are small details on this dress, like on the sleeve where it has stitching that has elastic that hugs the arm and a tie in the front, can't get much simpler then that! Now the material is linen and it being light tan I notices it can be slightly see through if you're anywhere close to sunlight, so I make sure to wear the right color undergarments underneath so that I don’t have any malfunctions. I paired it with my fringe sandals which would be a great look for a date night and I paired the It with some flat slides that are perfect for a casual daytime look. I also like that it has a loose fit and not clinging to my body. It’s a perfect dress for those upcoming summer events!
The color pink has definitely been trending a lot lately and being that it’s my favorite color I’m loving every bit of it. I have been adding color to my looks and totally enjoying it, I have a couple of recent post with wearing pink here and here. Summer is the perfect time to play around with this color and these pants were the perfect addition to my wardrobe.
