$19.99 Dress/$35.00 Wedges

 

What I Wear

As the temperature warms up, dresses become a staple in my wardrobe. Take a simple knit dress, add a belt to define the waist and a jean jacket for the cool mornings (and/or if it’s necessary to be more conservative – like the work place). Throw on a statement necklace and you can turn a very inexpensive dress into the perfect ensemble.

Shoes I Wear

The cream wedges are another inexpensive item that I’ve added to my spring/summer wardrobe. They are a fabulous transitional color that works with a multitude of outfits. They might just be my ‘go to’ shoe for the season!

The Red Dress (crown not included) – What I Wear

A dress fit for a queen, right?

HA! It’s fit for everyone!

This dress was one of those ‘on a whim’ purchases. I was zipping through the mall and ‘Cache’ was having a $79.00 dress sale. The word ‘sale’ definitely caught my eye and I thought, ‘Hey, you can never have enough dresses, right?’. Isn’t that what every woman thinks? 

It’s a classic piece in a beautiful shade of red with just a touch of ‘edge’ with the cutout. Perfect! Wrap it up, I’m sold. Got it home and thought…hmmm…wonder where I will wear this dress?

Fast forward about 3 weeks, running around like a crazy person with meetings, TV segment, school pick up/drop offs, traveling most of the week, and oh, yeah, that’s right, it’s the Mrs. Oklahoma International 2012 pageant the next day!

What to wear? What to wear? 

Ah, the red dress! But, it needs a little more ‘bling’, I am going to a pageant after all! So, without hesitation, I added some amber jeweled earrings (which, sorry, you can’t see with my hair), a beautiful amber jeweled brooch, gold/amber bangles and a pair of gold slingbacks. 

Done! Off to the pageant….oh, and don’t forget the crown to complete the look! 

 

 

 

TV Appearance – What I Wear

Here is a better look at what I wore the other day for my “Slumber Party Sweets and Treats” segment on Great Day Green County. I was feeling a little “Country Chic” that morning!

And, I admit, I was totally basing my outfit around my new Harley and Maudes necklace that I had made/customized the night before at the party (another blog to come highlighting that fun event). 

Do you ever do that? Take one item in your wardrobe, big or small, and build your outfit  around it?
