Summer’s Arrival :: Strapless Gingham Dress & Tassel Earrings

Summer doesn’t officially arrive for a few weeks, but I am already in my summer mode. Is it really a weekend in Coastal Virginia if you don’t visit the beach? If I go to the beach, I’m a fan of simple and effortless dresses doubling as cover-ups. This red strapless gingham dress is a great piece for summer because it’s so versatile. There are cute buttons down the front, which make it easy for this dress to go on and off. I will add, this dress can be short if you are not petite. I’m 5’3 and as you can see this hits mid thigh. I wouldn’t recommend this for ladies who are taller than 5’6. However, for someone who is vertically challenged like me, this red gingham dress is just perfect and no alterations are needed. I really like how this dress is tiered since it breaks up the gingham print, which can get monotonous.

rsTheCon 2018 Takeaways & a Little Red Romper

A few weeks ago, you may recall a stream of photos from me and some of your favorite bloggers in Dallas using the hashtag #rsTheCon. rewardStyle is a monetization platform I use, along with thousands of other bloggers, every single day on Color & Chic and my Instagram. Many of you are familiar with LiketoKnow.It, which is how you shop my Instagram. However, LTK is a tool developed by rewardStyle, which gives me and other digital bloggers the ability to earn money through my blog and social media channels.  The story of the two entrepreneurs who started rewardStyle in 2011 is a great one. Amber Venz-Box, who ran a blog, would hear from her readers they were purchasing the clothes she was wearing. But she wasn’t able to earn any money off the hard work she put in. That’s not exactly a good business model. That’s how rewardStyle was born.

The Perfect White Lace Blouse

Since spring is starting to show up on the East Coast a bit, I’m celebrating with this all white look, including this perfect white lace blouse. One aspect I love is how well done all of the crochet lace is. You can truly see the quality in this top and feel it when you wear it. This top comes with a cami underneath, too. The sleeves have a little flair for the dramatic because they are a little bit extra, but I love it! I really like high-neck blouses and the detailing around the neck are beautiful. To better show off these details, I went with more subtle earrings and these ear climbers are the perfect touch. While I usually prefer dangling earrings or statement earrings, these are a nice touch with the fun colors and shape.
