My life is busy… it is simple as that.
While I absolutely love clothes and putting together outfits, sometimes I am too rushed for time to put together something extradinary. In these moments, I need something that is both cute and comfortable and I can easily put together. Luckily I discovered Agnes & Dora. I was contacted by the super sweet Melissa, an Agnes & Dora consultant. I was intrigued because I had never heard of the brand before and was anxious to give it a try. I was immediately drawn to her brand because she has named her online boutique, Joli in Mel’s Boutique. Joli is french for pretty and what woman does not want to feel pretty?!
She allowed me to pick a few things to style for all of you and I decided to play on the idea of a capsule wardrobe. As I was browsing the pieces, I noticed that many of them were super versatile and could be worn together or separately. I picked items that I knew would look great alone, or would look amazing layered with other pieces.
For my first piece, I chose the Blue Soft Denim Curie Dress. This dress looks like denim but is so much softer. It hugs your body in all the right places and really puts a skip in your step. I loved they way that it moved with every step I took. I decided to really keep the dress the main focus of my outfit and paired it with a simple pair of booties, a classic pair of tassel earrings, and one of my favorite red, plaid Kate Spade handbags.
For my next look, I decided to keep the Curie Dress on, because Hello, it’s so cute, and layer it with the Vegan Angora Duster in Olive. This duster was such a great color so I knew that I would be able to wear it with so many things that were already in my closet. Olive really is a neutral. The material of the duster is very light weight so you get a little extra warmth without feeling constricted. It could easily be work in the Spring without any problem. I added one of my favorite Kendra Scott necklaces and changed up my boots and handbag.
I decided to try one more look with the Curie Dress but this time I was really going to make it a fun outfit. To do that I added the You Give Love a Plaid Name Leggings. My Mom has always said that plaid is her favorite color and I think I have to agree that it is one of my favorites as well. It is such a fun, classic print that really brings life to any outfit. I layered the leggings underneath the dress for a pop of color and a more modest look. I threw on one of my favorite blazers, a Goodwill Southeast Georgia find, added a classic pair of booties, and a fun pair of tassel earrings
For my last look, I wanted something completely different. I decided to go with the Earhart Dress in Mauve because it looked incredibly soft and comfortable. I loved the color and knew that I would easily be able to match it with so much in my closet. I did not layer anything with this dress because I really wanted it to stand alone. The fit was so flattering and the material really came to life as I walked. I cannot even begin to tell you just how soft this dress is making it beyond comfortable. I paired it with a fun pair of earrings and rich, burgundy booties to give this look a finishing touch.
Since adding these pieces to my wardrobe I have been able to style them countless ways. The dresses look great with a kimono or denim jacket while the leggings look super cute with an oversized sweater. My favorite way to wear the duster is with a crisp, white oxford and jeans, but it also looks adorable with a tank and shorts. The options are truly limitless. I encourage to go visit Melissa and check out her current stock or pop on over to her Facebook page or Instagram and just say Hello. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed!
