A Bold Print Dress for a Grab-and-Go Look

On some days, I don’t want to think about styling an outfit.  Sometimes, I don’t have time to do so.  I’ve learned to rely, then, on some key pieces in my wardrobe that I can always just grab and go.

This cap sleeved shift by Nine West with its striking print in the front and back is one of those grab-and-go items.  The dress says, “don’t worry, just put me on, and I’ll do all the work.”  So, I let it do that today.

Some ankle boots, hoop earrings, a bangle, and a watch add finishing touches.  And, I’m out the door.

    I wish I could just "grab and go" and look like this!

    This is a gorgeously printed dress! Have you ever tried it with a skinny gold belt? Or would that look weird breaking up the print?

    Oooh…thanks everyone! There are some items in my closet that draw many compliments from folks I meet in the streets. This dress did that on the day I wore it.

    @Kish: Hmmm…I may have to give that a try. I had avoided belting to avoid breaking the print up, but you might be on to something. If you see me rocking it belted next time, that's all your doing 🙂
