Happy hump day, y'all! We're halfway through the work week! I'm so ready for Friday to get here because that means my parents will be in town! They're here for the Texas/Cal game (my mother is a complete UT football addict.) But it should be a super fun weekend as W and I will be joining them for the game! Although I'm by no means a huge sports fan, I do love the energy of football games! And on the plus side…we are going to the tailgate which is my favorite part of a football game ;)
I found this swing fringe dress a few months ago and immediately became OBSESSED! I love how Cynthia Rowley modernized tweed with the neon colors and fringed hem. It's pure perfection. Plus, I'm loving how she turned it into a swing dress (meaning larger and flouncier hem) for a fun sixties twist. Plus, it's kind of hard to tell from the photos with my jacket on but there are also pockets! Any dress with pockets gets an automatic A+ in my book ;)
The colorful tweed makes this dress easily transitional. I needed a jacket for the cooler temps in San Francisco but I think this dress would be equally darling sans jacket and with a hot pink heel to bring out the pink hues in the dress. Also, if you work in a more corporate environment, adding a chic black blazer and switching out the sandals with black pumps and black tights could easily take this dress into the workplace.
As I mentioned in yesterday's blog post, I love adding a more masculine touch with my leather jacket to an otherwise very feminine dress to make it a little more edgy and add a flair of "street style."Ladies, if you do not already have a leather jacket like this one, I highly recommend investing in one. There are tons of cheaper options out there if you choose to go the faux leather route. However, a genuine leather jacket will take you far in life and I promise it is an evergreen investment meaning it will not go out of style.
