For my birthday I received a Kate Spade Cedarstreet Elissa handbag. It is the perfect everyday handbag. The color “clocktower” is such a great neutral handbag that can go with almost anything. It has been inspiring me to wear more neutral colors lately, which I was always afraid washed my skin tone out. I created this outfit inspired by this beautiful handbag.
I loved how the animal print is not overpowering the dress and still keeps it fun and feminine. I wanted to keep the jewelry simple, because the dress and shoes really do speak for themselves. I chose my letter charms necklace that has an M, heart, and J. It was something my husband and I hand selected on a getaway in Port Townsend, WA.
I have always loved high-low maxi dresses because they really get to feature your shoes. These shoes have such a sleek line on the foot, they would make anyone’s foot look fantastic. I also loved the back zipper and metal pieces that add detail to this heel.
The ruffles on this dress make the dress very feminine looking. It is so light and airy and flows so gracefully with any bit of summer breeze. Because of this, the chiffon fabric definitely is a great choice for summer time.
