Karina Dresses- Fun, Feminine, and Flirty!

The weather in Indiana this weekend was absolutely gorgeous!  We had temps in the upper 60’s and we spent most of it outside! With the warmer temps I wanted to pull out this fabulous dress from Karina Dresses.  Karina Dresses are made of comfortable materials, can be washed, and don’t wrinkle!

I am wearing the Ruby in Seaside Watercolor.  Karina Dresses are made with real women in mind.  Within the description of each dress they give you the body types that it will fit the best.  The Ruby is a faux wrap dress that is perfect for a hourglass body shape, inverted triangle shape, triangle shape, oval shape, and rectangle shape!


The faux wrap and neckline of this dress gives full coverage.  There is no need to tug or adjust constantly throughout the day.


I love the vintage feel of this dress.  The attached sash helps define the waist even more with the flared skirt.   I couldn’t wait for a warm day to pair this dress with these fun heels from Chinese Laundry! The pop of red screams spring and warmer weather!


As our warm temperatures continue this week. I am hoping to be able to wear this dress to work with a pair of red flats.   Which dress is your favorite style and how would you wear this dress?

I wore this look to work and it was extremely comfortable.  I decided to pair the dress with my favorite pair of Simple Addiction Leggings.  These are so incredibly soft and I love the color!  Since I knew it was a busy day I added my over the knee boots.  To add a touch of edge, I wore a choker.  I love the pink and gold with the colors in this dress!

This second look is probably my favorite!  I love the laid back look with the booties and hat!  I kept the jewelry simple since the hat was such a bold piece!  These Steve Madden booties are extremely comfortable and adorable!

This third look, I feel is my normal go to style!  I love pattern mixing!  It is so easy to do by adding a scarf.  Add a great pair of booties and statement earrings, and you are good for a day at work or a night out on the town.  Which look is your favorite?

Top 6 Reasons to Wear an A-Line Skirt

There is nothing that makes me feel more feminine than a skirt and a pair of heels.  Finding a skirt that fits well is hard, but I have found that my favorite style is an a-line.  You will see a whole section of this silhouette gracing my closet.  I love to pair my skirts with a close-fitting top to keep a sleek look on the top to help balance the fullness of an a-line skirt.
