Dress: Topshop (on sale!) | Belt: Old (similar) | Oxfords: Hinge (similar) | Purse: Kate Spade | Sunglasses: eBay (similar & lusting over these) | Earrings: Towne & Reese (love these) | Necklaces: Kris Nations, Stella & Dot | Bracelets: Alex & Ani (& here & here), Michael Kors, ASOS | Watch: Michael Kors | Rings: Ariella Collection (similar) | Lips: Nars “Schiap” | Nails: OPI “Mod About You”

If I had to choose, my favorite article of clothing would be a dress. You don’t have to worry about pulling on jeans, zipping up zippers or buttoning up tops. You can just throw this on and run out the door. I’m usually in a hurry when I get dressed because I always seem to be short on time aka fashionably late. Living in a desert that gets up to 115 like it’s no big deal is another reason… but I don’t like to dwell on that.

This Topshop dress is my current favorite. The second I laid eyes on it it screamed Taylor Swift. It has a vintage feel, is a fit & flare and it’s red! I then had to pair it with it’s perfect counterpart, oxfords! These are SO comfortable and unique plus I love how they contradict the feminine frock. I’m normally a flip flops kind of gal for the same reasons mentioned above: they’re super fast to slip on plus they’re not as stuffy… so sandals usually win. But I definitely think these oxfords are worth spending an extra minute or two lacing up.

Dressed Up Basics

Shirt: Majestic (similar) | Jeans: Joe’s Vintage Reserve (sold out) Similar| Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell | Handbag: Alexander Wang (OBSESSED) | Necklace: Baublebar x Nordstrom | Bracelets: Kate Spade, Nadri | Sunglasses: Stella Mccartney (sold out)

I’m a huge fan of accessories for a multitude of reasons! Not only are they gorgeous to look at, but they take an über casual look, like jeans and a tee, and instantly dress it up! And not to brag, but my earrings still fit from high school. Okay I actually stole that quote from the internet, but it’s hilarious and totally true! Most jewelry will always fit even if those those extremely low-cut Hollister short shorts from high school don’t. Ahem. Therefore, you can feel less guilty about how much you end up shelling out for a faux crystal statement necklace that was probably made in China… not speaking from experience or anything. 😉

Here’s my take on dressed up basics!

Kimono: Band of Gypsies (exact) similar here and here and love this | Tank: Hard Tail (sold out) similar (on sale!) | Shorts: Dittos (sold out) similar | Booties: Sam Edelman | Bag: Alexander Wang (OBSESSED!) | Sunnies: Chloe | Necklace: House of Harlow | Watch: Michael Kors (similar) | Bracelets: Michael Kors & ASOS (on sale!) | Rings: Ariella Collection (sold out) similar in gold similar in silver | Lipstick: NARS & check out this amazing (Lip & Nail Set)

I’m sure by now many of you are well aware of and own the beloved kimono. If you don’t, let me convince you why you you must remedy that issue immediately!

1. They instantly make everything you own cooler (not in temperature, obviously.) On second thought, they are usually made of silk or chiffon which makes them light and airy! So swap out your hot, sweaty cardigan for this baby.

2. I know you have a plain black or white top hanging in your closet. Throw this on over your basic tee for an instant upgrade. #byebyebasics

3. Wear it over cut offs, boyfriend shorts, skinny jeans, as a swimsuit cover-up, etc. It really doesn’t matter because it looks good with everything!

I LOVE mine so much I want 93748762390476 more.

Gimme all the kimonos.
