Dressy Red Midi

May 25, 2017

In typically Molly's-a-bad-blogger fashion, I've had this dress for a couple months, love it but am just now getting around to sharing it, and there's only a handful sizes left at a select few retailers. I'm the worst guys - and I know it! The good news is that it can still be found. The bad news is that it's the first red dress I've ever bought and I fear that I now have an addiction. The good news about that new found love is I've linked more favorite red frocks...right this way!

 

What spurred me to searching for a red dress was a fun art party I went to a couple months back. I normally shop my closet when it comes to cocktail parties, weddings, etc. but I really (really, really) had the itch to get something new for this “see and be seen” event and I knew I wanted red and that it had to be a slip dress style. To me, slip dresses are endlessly versatile. They’re easy to pack (which means you should always throw one in your bag because you never know when you’ll need a party dress), easy to wear (body skimming, not body hugging), and the more simple they are, the better they look paired with bold jewelry. I didn’t know of Raquel Allegra till I was browsing Net-A-Porter by color (red, obvi) and found this style with a fringed v-neck and cut-off hem. The tomato-red color was spot on with my vision so I ordered it along with two other options, fell in love with it immediately, and sent the other two back.

Basically, I’m so happy that I stepped out of my color comfort zone and opted for red. The color is much more “notice me” than black or white but that’s what makes it special and so fun to wear.

As promised, here are some other “lady in red” dresses to love: I have another dress (not red) in this strapless ruffle silhouette and love how flattering it is, love how this is off-the-shoulder but tailored, this all-lace guy is beyond pretty, if you’re into the cold shoulder trend this a-line number is for you, this fit and flared style looks so comfortable, adore the simple top and tulip bottom of this, and I’m really obsessed with this timeless shirtdress style!

P.S. Thank you to my sweet friend Kelsey for letting me borrow her Annie Costello earrings!

The WTF’s

May 23, 2017

I posted this Instagram the other day (thank you for the beautiful image, @honestlywtf!) - "I'm currently experiencing life at the speed of 15 WTF's per hour"- and the timing for the sentiment could not have been more real. Generally, things always seem somewhat overwhelming but life has been seriously stressful lately. A true "when it rains, it pours" with one unfortunate scenario after the other (think a full-blown fly infestation in my home, a spay surgery for Rosie with an emergency surgery just days after that, etc.). All this is my way of explaining why I have been less than on top of things as far as blogging is concerned. And that I could use a truck load of rosé should anyone feel inclined to send help.

WTF's aside, I'm excited to share this pretty caftan - another lovely number by MIRTH - because it's been a fantastic maxi that I've loved wearing!

 

Dallas is notorious for being overly warm and humid during the spring. The flip side of this is anyplace you go thats indoors (restaurants, stores, offices, etc.) are a freezing cold temperature. I’m so bad at remembering to bring a layer with me to battle the intense air conditioning so wearing a maxi dress is a nice way to keep a little covered without wearing jeans (dresses are just so much easier, amiright?). Love, love, love the hand block printed fabric and neutral colors on this Zermatt style…the v-neck and side ties make it super flattering and comfy.

This + That // Sales + Steals

May 19, 2017

Today's post is short and sweet as I have a newborn that is pretty hard to resist holding 24/7. Our pediatrician told us that at this point, there is nothing that we can do that will "spoil" him too much. I've taken this advice quite literally and hold him every single second that I can because I know the days are going to fly by. We just love him so much and truly can't get enough! (read on to get the sales + steals)

This + That:

Some Sales:

  • Ann Taylor: 40% off the instant outfit event with code GETDRESSED. (This color combination is so good. If only sweaters were an option in Dallas right now!)
  • Anthropologie: 25% off shorts, tops, sandals, and swim for summer! (These are pretty cool, no?)
  • Banana Republic: Shop more, save more. 30% off $70+ or 40% off $200+. (This must be pretty cute in person seeing as its almost completely sold out – might have to order! Button downs are my best friend because they’re nursing friendly – love the sleeves of this one.)
  • BaubleBar: Pick a free treat with any $40+ order. (These would be great with a crisp white dress!)
  • Calypso St. Barth: Enjoy an additional 50% off sale styles! (This dress looks like a complete dream for summer.)

  • Gap: Online only – 40% off your purchase with code PICKMEUP. (Kind of obsessed with this different take on a utility jacket.)

  • J.Crew: In stores and online – extra 30% off sale styles with code HELLOSALE. (I’m a sucker for a great coverup come summertime – how good is this one? A scalloped sports bra? Yes, please!)
  • J.Crew Factory: Online only – 50% off summer stock-up styles. (This print is adorable.)
  • LOFT: Sale! Over 250 styles starting at $10. (May be ordering a few of these in the white, the price is SO good.)
  • Old Navy: 20% off everything through today! (This in the hot tamale color is so fun.)

All About the Ojai

May 18, 2017

They say you can't/shouldn't wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Such an out-dated rule...and one I've never been good at following. Once it's warm enough, I'm all about the head-to-toe white looks and especially gravitate towards white dresses. Being that the warm weather hits Dallas in early spring, I've been wearing my fave white frocks for a few weeks now...and this Ojai Caftan by MIRTH has been on repeat.

 

The best thing about wearing all white – besides the fact that it always looks so crisp, clean, and fresh – is that it creates an ideal canvas for layering colorful, bold and or statement-making accessories. I’ve worn the Ojai with both wedges and sandals but really like how it looks styled with my spring Sabahs (the Thassos Tea is such a pretty, icy aqua!). Normally I wouldn’t add more color to this look but the shoes are almost a neutral and they go perfectly with my Pom Bon earrings from The Loveliest.

I should probably note that out of all my MIRTH caftans (and I have quite the collection), the Ojai is one of the lightest and most breezy of the bunch. It’s a little hard to see in the photos but the 100% cotton handloomed fabric (re: so, incredibly soft and light) has a check pattern that gives it some great dimension.  Details like the braided rope around the neckline, tiny tassels, and tie sleeves just make it even more special.
