Happy Manic Monday, everyone! Since I am still vacationing (it's hard to be me), I do have another special guest for you today! Cynthia is no stranger to the Manic Monday linkup, so it seemed a natural for her to step in for me today and share her endless inspiration! Gina and I are always amazed at the stylish ladies who link up with us-- you have no idea how lucky I feel getting to dive into everyone's posts each week, and how much I've learned from each one of you! If you remember, one of Cynthia's Manic Monday looks inspired this look of mine a few weeks ago. Week after week she shares her effortless style and I can't hardly wait to see what she'll do next! I know you'll be inspired!
I have to tell you how excited I am that I get to do my first guest post for none other than fabulous Carylee. I absolutely love her style and although we've never met in person, I have no doubt that she is as sweet and fun as she appears to be on her blog. I am so glad that we finally get to wear dresses without having to cover up our legs with tights or boots. I've been dying to wear my Madewell Afternoon dress. This is their signature dress they carry every year in different colors and patterns. I love the versatility of this dress; you can easily dress it up or down depending on your mood. I chose a casual look for this post by pairing it with a denim jacket and espadrilles. The color combination completely sold me on these Soludos espadrilles as soon as I laid my eyes on them. It makes me think of a lazy afternoon at the beach with a refreshing rainbow sorbet in hand. Can you tell I'm ready for summer? I finished the look with one of my favorite clutches. Curious to see how else I would style this dress? Hop over to My Rose Colored Shades and see how I dressed it up a bit for a casual chic look.
