Moody Style: Now and Later

Happy Friday Eve! I hope that you all are having a great week so far.  I’ve been traveling for work since Sunday and I still have one more day to go, so needless to say I’m ready for the weekend.  I’m also ready for a vacation.  I realized earlier today that I haven’t taken a real vacation this summer yet.  I’ve gone on mini trips here and there, but nothing like a true vacation where I’m sitting on a beach soaking up the rays or exploring a new city.  Hopefully, I’ll get something planned soon, so stay tuned.

The sleeveless cowl neck shift dress that I’m wearing was one of the first pieces that I wore from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  This dress is so easy to wear now by itself in the summertime with some cute sandals and accessories.  And it will transition perfectly later into the fall season.  Just add some booties and a denim or utility jacket and you’re ready for cooler weather.  A few weeks ago, I packed this dress to visit my sister out of town for the weekend.  This dress is so soft and lightweight, that it was easy to add to my luggage.  I decided to wear this dress to church because it’s comfortable and it’s a versatile piece that you don’t have to think about.  When I originally saw this casual dress online, I didn’t hesitate to order it right away.  I had a feeling it was going to be a flattering dress and I wasn’t disappointed.  The cowl neck has just the right amount of draping to it without make you feel too constricted like a turtleneck.  And this dress has pockets, which automatically made it one of my go to dresses for rest of the summer.  Did any of you get this dress during the #nsale?  If you didn’t you should still think about it.  The price isn’t bad at $38 and it comes in about 9 colors that include solid and stripe options to choose from as well.

  6. I have been staring at that dress over and over wondering about it. You look amazing in it! I'm going to order and wear it now while it's hot and then later with leggings or skinny jeans. :)
