The Simply Luxurious Life®: Want & Have Outfit: No. 2

Want & Have Outfit: No. 2

What I love most about wearing dresses are all the decisions that are eliminated simply by choosing to wear a dress for the day. You don’t have to worry about which pants work best or which top balances out the cut of the trousers or skirt. Instead, you just slip it on, add a few accessories and head out the door. Yet another reason to become a lover of wearing dresses.

Ever since I saw the Duchess of Cambridge wear Diane von Furstenberg’s Maja dress in green, I was smitten with the simple, classically modern style and cut. While that particular dress (view it here, as she wore it during her tour of Canada and the United States) sold out immediately upon being captured by the press, Furstenberg thankfully came out with the same style but in different colors. Thrilled to have been able to finally purchase my very own this past spring in periwinkle, it works well for day and evening in spring, summer and September. While a bit of an investment, keep it on your watch list, as DVF has frequent surprise sales that would make this dress more than worthy of hanging in your closet.

The other item that I wear nearly every time I want to wear gold earrings are made by a talented young entrepreneur Tiffany Taylor Kenney. Her Karolina earrings are about the size of a quarter, and the compliments have yet to stop. Simple and classic, they work well with a variety of sartorial choices.

Now, let the fun begin. Choose a scarf or a fabulous necklace, as well as flats for day or heels in the evening, sling a shoulder strap handbag over one arm and you are set.

Exactly why I love to wear dresses for work. They are supper easy to wear, no need to fret about coordination the top to the bottom, and you can just pile on the accessories!

Just a quick correction - Dutchess of Cambridge, not Princess. Fab blog though, I am a frequent visitor.
