Orange: The Perfect Summer Color

June 15, 2015

I’m in love. This orange dress from AQ AQ is EVERYTHING (similar here). Not only does it give my body a waist (which can be hard to achieve thanks to my tube-like figure), it makes my legs look oh so thin. And if you saw my appearance on THE TALK today, you can see it in action.

This is the thing. I know many of us shy away from mini dresses and skirts, but when they’re made right, they actually make the wearer look like she has the flyest legs ever! Wearing a straight up hige flare, like a skater skirt, or anything with a slight A-line, makes the eyes go wide, and when your striking legs come shooting sure-footed out of the bottom, it makes those legs look so thin in comparison to that flare. Magic. And when combo-ed with the youthful mini, them legs take on a look like they go on FOREVA’.

Because my orange was such a strong color, I paired it with Kenneth Cole Black and Silver Bon-Net pumps that I love. But then I hit Kohls and found these Rock & Republic Rollie Snake bad boys. They are the perfect match with snake skin and a touch of orange. And they’re vegan leather. A steal!

Wne it comes to accessories, I tend to go simple. A bunch of stacked silver is always up my alley. This time I paired this look with a wooden watch, sharp earrings, and a natural make-up face. I think it works to have one thing really stand out, in this instance it’s that orange. Orange you glad I told you where you can get this dress?

All my love,
