Photography by Mr. S

Mister S gave me a free Saturday a couple of weekends ago.  I went to a brunch with DVF, got a pedicure {remember this pic}, and went shopping {and this pic}.  What a FABULOUS Saturday!  While I was perusing V.O.D. before my pedi, this cute striped number by Jonathan Simkhai caught my eye.  I love the colors – the blues and greens remind me of the sea.  It is a body con dress so I asked the SA if I looked inappropriate {like sausage stuffed into casing}.  She assured me I did not.  Bonus, it was on sale.

The dress is so fun and versatile!  I envision wearing it for work over a white button up shirt and my gold cap toe flats {seen here} or for date nite with some killer heels {maybe these} and attitude.  Here, I wore it to brunch with the mister, my little brother, and my little man.

STYLE RX:  Rock a body con dress during the day by throwing on a blazer or vest.  Add riding boots or booties to finish a casual chic look.

How do you wear body con dresses?  Or do you?

      Thanks Mica! Brunch was great! The little one did pretty well – we were able to eat most of our food before he got too fussy! He tends to do better during the day! :)

      And stripes are always fun!

    Looks like a winning combination to me! I love the little tassel zipper pulls!

      Lyddie! Tassels are my kryptonite – I’m automatically attracted to anything with tassels! LOL!

  3. Your hair looks fab in these pics and I am digging the great tassel detail on those boots!

      Hi Lisa!!! So good to see you! Yes, Coach definitely got it right with these boots! A riding boot with tassel zipper pulls – what else do you need?!

  4. Amber says:

    Your style is always spot on!! This dress looks great on you. And I really want a fur vest. Like now. ;)

      Hi Amber! Thanks lady! I am ALL ABOUT the fur vests! I probably have too many, but they are hard to resist (especially when you find them at F21 or Ross)!

  5. I know this is about the dress, but so jealous you have that Alexander Wang bag, I love it! :D Would be a perfect work bag :)

      GUURRLL!! I got the bag at Last Call! Yes, it’s pretty good for everything! I can put my stuff, baby stuff, the kitchen sink, and my camera in it! The limiting factor is how much it weighs after that! You need to stalk it until it hits sale because it is a great bag!

  6. love the stripes and the fuzzy gilet.. ahhh! a bit jealous that i can’t layer up now..

      Haha Steph! It’s so funny how our weathers are completely opposite! Right about now {when we are in snow}, I kind of wish we could be relaxing by the pool in the sun! :)

  7. Lauren says:

    LOVE the outfit–especially those boots! Tassels!? Amazing.

    • Sam says:

      Thank you Lauren! It was really hard to pass them up last year especially when they went on sale! ;)

  8. Diva In Me says:

  10. You look absolutely gorgeous from head to toe Sam…..the fur vest (which I can’t believe is from Ross!) really nailed the whole look together!

      Hey Rebecca!! Thank you! I used to live in a small town outside of Austin, and 95% of my wardrobe came from Ross, Marshalls, and Dillards sales!!
