Fashion Refined ~ Color Blocked Dress

Hey dolls! I decided to postpone today’s Reader’s Choice Monday post for several reasons. First, I didn’t have the time or the energy to change my nails last night. I rushed to get the Zoya Lovely collection to you, so I spent Saturday evening taking pictures and yesterday evening editing photos and typing the post. Second, the options were all Deborah Lippmann polishes and I would much rather prefer to wear those than to swatch only for photo purposes. Third, I have a super cute Christmas polish I want to wear for tomorrow.

Therefore, today you get my first Fashion Refined post (the series title may change). Last month I asked on my facebook page whether you all would be interested in seeing my personal fashion looks and the response was yes. I’m not sure how often this series will take place; probably just when I’m inspired and I have my hubby nearby to take pictures.┬áThe outfit I’m showing is what I wore to church yesterday. Here goes nothing!

Dress: Banana Republic | Top: NYCO | Shoes: ShoeDazzle | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Adorned Boutique | Necklace: Macys | Tights: Kohls | Nails: Zoya Julie

This is a classic, yet chic look for the winter. It’s been in the 20s in the mornings over the last few days, so layering is required! I am in love with the bracelets from Adorned Boutique, which was started by one of my sorority sisters earlier this month. She has a lot of great pieces, so check her out!

I hope you all like this little peek into my closet. I love to take pictures, but I will admit that this was so awkward! I now have an even great respect for all of the fashion bloggers I follow. I tend to post outfits of the day on Instagram, so you can see more there. Merry Christmas Eve dolls!

        Really? It looks good though, I’m transitioning right now so I’m totally jealous!

          How long have you been transitioning? We’re going to have to start having hair talks now!

          • hautelacquer

            Lol, I could talk about hair all day! I had my last relaxer in August but didn’t “officially” start transitioning until September. So about 4 months or so.

    Hahaha… I felt the same “awkward” way when I took my first Fashion pictures for the blog.

    I Generally love to take pictures, but doing it for “fashion/blogging” purposes, was different. Lol…

    Anyhoo, you nailed it and you are beautiful.
    I loved the outfit when I saw it on Instagram and I still do. The Maroon color is amazing. And your hair is fabulous!
