Styling with Stephanie... Wear Now, Wear Later

Truth be told, I'm not the best at planning my outfits ahead of time. However, the store is stocked and by the time I have to go to that wedding in August, my wardrobe & the store will be switching over to fall. Here are some wonderful pieces, versatile enough to wear now & later, casual or dressy.

Easter Now, Grad Parties Later

Nothing says spring like a bright, colorful floral. This dress is comfortable & flirty; one of those dresses you can just throw on and go. For Easter Sunday, I'll wear this with ballet flats, dangly earrings and a crossbody bag. Thinking ahead, I would love to wear this out to a graduation party with metallic sandals (or flatforms like these) colorful earrings & a metallic clutch.

Work Outfit Now, Girls' Night Later

This black ruffle blouse is incredibly versatile. It would be perfect for work (jacket optional) with slim pants or a pencil skirt and pointy pumps. I love this basketweave bucket bag, although a structured tote would look fantastic, too. For a girls night at the new Bar Brigade or patio at W.A. Frost, slip on this fun printed Nicole Miller skirt, a bright crossbody or clutch, and wedges and you are ready for anything.

Jumpsuit Now, Jumpsuit Whenever

This Fifteen Twenty cotton jumpsuit just came in. I don't have specific plans for it, I'm only worried I'm going to wear it too often. My first thought is a pool party, second thought - a backyard BBQ, happy hour, taking the kids to tennis, going for an evening stroll... I could go on. For a more casual take, slip on flat sandals, carry a tote, & load on delicate jewelry. To take the look a step further, wear strappy heels, a metallic clutch, & chandelier earrings.

Wear to Dinner Now, Wear to a Wedding Later

Yes, of course, I saved the best for last. I just love this Nicole Miller dress. It makes me smile (and jump for joy). I would wear this with a scarf, sandals & a neutral clutch or crossbody out to dinner with my husband. For a summer wedding, I would wear some sparkly swarovski jewelry from Helen Wang, metallic strappy heels & snakeskin or metallic clutch. Side note, the liner of this dress can also be taken out to wear as a bathing suit coverup. ;)
