If you follow my blog regularly, then you know what a fan I am of ELOQUII, and today, I’m wearing a look from my favorite brand. And as I previously mentioned on the blog, I’m obsessed with white dresses lately. I just love the 3D floral effect of this one. Plus, the adjustable shoulder ties are really cute.
I didn’t want to interfere with the hem on the dress, so rather than having the dress hemmed, I decided to have the lining hemmed to create a lighter, more airy (and leggy) effect.
My favorite looks are those that feel balanced, a mix of soft and hard. So, to balance the airy feminine dress, I added a black moto jacket.
I decided a while back that in celebration of my blogiversary I really wanted a custom jacket branded with my logo. Since I love moto jackets and they’re a signature piece in my wardrobe, I decided this ELOQUII moto jacket was the perfect piece to customize.
Because the material is faux leather, painting or screenprinting the jacket weren’t really options. The paint would flake too easily; the screenprinting process could melt the jacket.
So, I decided to go with the option of having the jacket embroidered. I went with embroidery in a pastel, peachy pink to match my blog logo – millenial pink before millenial pink was a thing. LOL
I am excited to have a one-of-a-kind piece that I”m sure to wear for years to come!
And then came these heels!!! I have small but wide feet. About six months ago, I discovered that ASOS has wide fit shoes that start at a US size 4. This revelation has been LIFE CHANGING! I never considered myself a shoe person before because I always had a difficult time finding shoes that I loved in my size. Now, I seem to be having the opposite problem! This velvet/chrome combo is just so fun.
The weather was so amazing while taking these pictures that it really has me longing hard for fall! It was cool and breezy outside, a perfect weather combination. It has been so hot and humid here in the St. Louis area, but the weather this weekend was simply gorgeous. And being able to wear a moto jacket for a while is making me super eager to start bringing my favorite jackets back into regular rotation!
What are you eager to wear when the weather cools? What would you like to see from Style Cassentials in the next five years?
