Spicing Up a Simple Shift Dress

cheap shift dress

Hello lovelies! I haven’t been the best blogger in the world lately because I’m in the process of moving. My weekdays are spent at work and my weeknights are spent packing things into boxes and shoving my clothes into space bags. Packing really takes a toll on your body after awhile. If anything, you simply feel exhausted! Today, I wanted to share with you this super cute dress from Banana Republic I found on clearance for $12!

chandelier earrings blue Everyone knows I love a shift dress because they’re easy to wear and good for days when you aren’t feeling, ahem, the thinnest. They look great no matter if it’s a good day or a bad one. This dress caught my attention not just because of the bright orange sticker on it, but also because of the chic triangular cut out near the neck. Classic dresses like this can be made much more “trendy” when they have fun details like a neckline or embellishments!
Another thing I love about this dress is how I can accessorize it with bold jewelry! These earrings were a gift from a friend (I think she found them at Francesca’s) and they are so cute! I normally don’t wear chandelier earrings because they get caught in my hair. Studs are simply more my style! With a simple dress like this though, it’s important to make it a little more exciting with some eye-catching details!

Being the Boss Lady

The Boss Lady

Seriously, what girl doesn’t dream of being a princess or at least the boss of something? I know I have. Both actually. However, I think the standard pant suit is boring for women. I prefer to embrace something more feminine and flattering. A wrap dress like this Diane von Furstenberg is absolutely perfect. Pairing it with pastel accessories and the all-important cup of tea (or coffee if it was for me) signals that this lady is also a power player and game changer. You aren’t one of the boys, but you’re not a demure thing either. You are YOU. And in this case, you’re the boss. Own it.
