Dress Season, Vol. 4 with Gal Meets Glam
It was so great having Spring weather this past week – Charlie and I spent more time outside, enjoyed the Park, walked around the Slope – which is what I love to do this time of year, taking in all the gorgeous blossoms, and even had a few early dinners on our roof deck.
This weekend I finally rotated my closet — and realized that I’m in dire need of a Spring wardrobe update myself. I’ve been busy helping my clients refresh their wardrobes for the Season and totally forgot that I did a major purge last year as part of my style refinement “practice what you preach” initiative (more on that in future posts).
While I definitely need to replenish some basics (like tees and shorts), I’ve been pretty satisfied with my most recent dress purchases — a lot of them from the Gal Meets Glam Collection.
In my final installment of the 4-week Spring/Summer Dress Celebration, I wanted to share how I styled a simple yet sweet Cecily Dress from Julia’s collection.
I read that she said this particular design is one of her favorites, with its darling print and easy silhouette — and I have to agree.
The dress is designed to be an everyday daytime piece, that can be dressed up to be perfect for a Baby Shower, Bridal Shower or a Sunday Brunch, or dressed down for an afternoon at the park.
I went for a simple look, pairing it with my new favorite Castaner Carol Wedge Espadrilles from Shopbop, my J.Crew Regent Linen Blazer in Yellow (sold out — but similar ones below) and used the roses of the dress as inspiration to coordinate with a YSL Kate Chain Clutch for a pop of color.
One of the best ways to create a statement with your look is by choosing a pattern that does all the talking AND to lean on the colors of the pattern to inspire the rest of the pieces. In this case, I chose yellow to compliment red and repeated it in both my shoes and blazer, plus the gold chain of the bag nicely warmed up the look, continuing the yellow and red story.
I hope this dress inspires you to play around with prints for your Spring/Summer wardrobe! I would love to see what you come up with — please feel free to tag #ModnitsaSpring in your posts and I’ll repost them on my stories!
