Little Red Dress

Red Dress-- Vici-- Similar here, here and here
Heels-- Sam Edelman
Sunglasses-  Gucci
Bag--Balenciaga--similar here

I think my favorite color to wear in the Fall is red. I can wear it all year long. And I picked up this cute little red dress at Vici. Every fashion girl needs a little read dress in their life. Right?

I have always struggled with what color shoe to wear with a little red dress. Do you wear black or nude? I feel like women have been entertaining this question for years. I think I prefer a nude heel or bootie best with red. I think it is a softer combination. What do you prefer with a red dress? And p.s. I am really loving these Sam Edelman bloc heels lately. They are so comfy. Thanks to Kara Nixon for photos. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above. Happy Reading!!!!!

Taking the Perfect Dress into Fall

Dress-- Zadig and Voltaire -- sale on this top in the same print.
Mules-- Sam Edelman
Sunglasses-- Chloe

Don't you love the perfect dress that you can transition from Summer into Fall? I think I found the cutest one from Zadig and Voltaire. I love this line. It's the perfect combination of chic and funky and I'm all about that!!!

I found this dress at Bloomingdales on sale. I knew it had to be mine. And even though these colors are so Spring/Summer time, if I add a denim or camel suede jacket, some camel booties and change up my purse, it is the perfect Fall look.

Comfy and Cozy with JJ Winks

Loungewear c/o JJ Winks

Don't you just love loungewear? It always feels good to come home and change into a comfy and cozy outfit to lounge around the house. Right?

I am so excited to share with you a line of sleepwear/loungewear that I absolutely love-- JJ Winks.  This adorable line was created by two moms that were tired of sacrificing looking good around the house for looking modest around the family. That's why these tops and nightgowns have a Light Hug feature, which enables you to not have to wear a bra in the loungewear so you can look appropriate and sleep comfortably in it all night long.  

The pieces I am wearing are the Room Service Nightgown in Olive and the Hygge Robe in Charcoal. I absolutely love this combo. I love that I don't have to wear a bra and I feel so supported. I have worn this cute little nightgown as a dress to run errands around town. And when the weather starts cooling down (hopefully soon) I can't wait to wear this cute robe as a jacket over my workout clothes in the morning. So I highly recommend checking out this amazing web site and ordering some comfy pieces of your own. And I am lucky enough to offer my readers a 20% coupon code: Evelyne20.  I can't wait to hear how you are styling your loungewear!! Thanks to Kara Nixon for photos. Happy Reading!!!!

The Perfect Ruffles for Fall

 Dress-- Vici-- Similar here, here
Wedges-- Marc Fisher
Straw Bag--Nordstrom
Necklace-- Gorjana

Don't you love ruffles? I love ruffle details or sleeves on this cute dress. Ruffles add such a fun flair to an ordinary little black dress. 

This is the perfect dress for transitioning into fall. For this look, I added some great wedges, and this straw summer bag. These are all essentials for summer right? To move into fall,  I could add a printed bag (like leopard), some booties and a denim jacket.  It's as simple as that. So invest in some ruffles for this upcoming fall season. I can't wait to hear about how you add ruffles into your life. Thanks to Kara Nixon for photos. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above. Happy Reading!!!!

Mother Denim c/o Neiman Marcus and Phoebe Paints
White Blazer-- Nordstrom and here
White Tank-- Nordstrom
Tennis Shoes-- Golden Goose
Jewelry-- Shopg2g
Sunglasses-- Chloe

I was lucky enough to attend a Neiman Marcus Fashion Island event a few weeks back. I picked up this cute pair of Mother Denim and had them hand painted by Phoebe Paints. These are so fun and I love how she personalized these jeans just for me. All I had to do was pick out the designs I liked best and Phoebe painted them onto my jeans. I loved the daisies, rainbow and I thought my initials would be so cute. I absolutely love them. They are so unique and I feel so special that they were created just for me!!! You have to check out more about Phoebe and all of her services. She is so talented. 

I paired these cute jeans with a basic white blazer and tank. I added my go to tennies, some of my fave pieces from my girl Gianna @shopg2g and my favorites sunglasses. What do you think of these personalized jeans? What would yours look like? Thanks to Neiman Marcus for my perfect jeans and a very fun night out and thanks to Kara Nixon for photos.

Happy Anniversary

My cute hubby and I just celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. We celebrated by having a beautiful dinner at Watermarc in Laguna Beach. I cannot believe that I have known him since high school and he was my prom date!! I really am a lucky lady and found my true love so young!!!

I'm not going to lie. Marriage is hard work. Jeff and I make sure every day to connect and get in touch with what the other is doing. When we first had Ben, our oldest son, we had a sitter every Saturday night so we could have dinner and really talk, uninterrupted. We continued this tradition with Zachary as well. 

So if I could give any advice to you ladies out there (new wives or new moms), just remember to make your hubby a priority and enjoy time with him. That could be during a date night in, or out, or a nice long walk or weekend away. Just remember to put away your phones and really talk to each other. This little ritual goes a long way!!! How so you guys connect with your significant other? I would love to hear about it!!!

Say Yes to Denim Shorts

Denim Shorts-- Madewell-- similar here
Kimono-- Vici-- similar here, here
Tee-- Nordstrom
Tennis Shoes-- Golden Goose

Yes you can wear jean shorts!!!! Ladies, I have many girlfriends that say, "No way, I cannot pull off denim shorts", but even if you are in the over forty group like me, I'm telling you YES you can. You just have to find the fit and style that suits you the best. I love this pair that I picked up at Madewell. They are not too long or too short, and I love the wash.  

And a good way to incorporate denim shorts into your wardrobe is by adding a cardigan, duster or kimono over it. I love this Vici kimono that I paired over a simple white tank. It was such an easy look to create and it is perfect for everyday running around town. All I had to do was add my absolute favorite go to tennies and my look was complete. 

I highly recommend that as a transition piece from summer to fall (if fall ever gets here) you invest in some good denim shorts. I want to hear how you add your own flair to this look. You can shop this look by clicking on the links above. Thanks to Kara Nixon for photos. Happy Reading!!!!
