Spring Edition: Embroidered Dress & Cage Sandals

The days are getting longer and lighter…and it is April! I love spring fashion. I paired this embroidered tiered dress from Zara with Schutz cage lace-up sandals. I love the contrast of the sweet and feminine ruffle tiered dress with the edgier and rougher cage sandals. I bought these heels five (!) years ago as a gift to myself when I started my at-the-time new consulting job. Fast forward five years later and I still love wearing them, and they are great transitional shoes for both spring and fall. I actually own them in a more nude camel color, too.

Floral Sundress & Metallic Gladiators

There is nothing more summery to me than a summer sundress! As soon as I laid my eyes on this bright whimsical floral print, I knew I had to have it. I love the yellow, the drop waist, and the subtle high low hem. I kept this look simple and casual by pairing it with my favorite metallic gladiator lace up sandals. I believe that metallics are the equivalent of neutrals. A sundress, like this one, is a closet staple to me because you can dress it up and down. If I switched into heels this look would be cocktail party ready.

It’s been fall like weather all weekend so far, but that won’t stop me from wearing a few final summer looks! Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day holiday!
