Today I wanted to share with you guys a casual-ish dinner date outfit. I wore this to a trendy restaurant last week and loved how the outfit turned out. Its simple, but little things make it fun and trendy. I chose a bright red wool coat to be the show stopper, and normally with something like that you can wear a very neutral outfit under it. However, I went with a striped maroon and gold body con dress to show you that you can still have shades of red in the outfit and it won’t be too red. I was thinking of rocking a red lip- but realized that would be over kill.
You can easily turn a tight dress into something dinner ready by wearing a long coat over it
Sticking with my love of turtlenecks, I had to choose a statement necklace to wear because…well naturally. Its me.
I’ve never actually worn a bright red with a warm toned brown before, but I took the risk, and I loved it!
Since this look is so colorful, it was important to stick with a bag of the same color as the shoes, or it would be too many colors in one look.

2014 was the year of high waisted skirts for me. I picked up this gem in Singapore, and I love the pleating! It makes it a bit fancier, and gives a definite shape. If you have smaller hips like me, look for something like pleating to help give you shape! I paired this metallic cropped sweater to jazz up the black a bit, and make the outfit a bit more festive. The gladiators were added to give the look a bit more masculinity with the feminine pieces. I love how it turned out!
The metallic sweater really helps to make the look a bit more glitzy for night time!
The turtle neck of the sweater made me immediately reach for a statement necklace
The side slit of the skirt makes it so easy to walk in, and adds just the right amount of drama
Close up of the gladiator sandals! I chose a style that has a full back zipper as well as adjustable straps so that it fits my legs the way I want them to
How impossibly feminine is this skirt?! Lots of room for movement and the waistband keeps it in place!
