Summer with a Hint of Fall

Yay it’s Friday! I’m going to be trying a couple new things out with the blog and one of those will be posting on Fridays. I’d really like to see if I’m able to reach more of you by posting towards the end of the week as opposed to the beginning. I know Mondays can be miserable and hectic for some people. You’ve been at work 45 seconds and your boss is already calling you with new assignments to do along with the multiple work emails you need to read (that used to be my life too). So I’m going to try posting on Fridays for a few weeks to see if you all like that more!

Today’s look is a fun breezy flirty bell-sleeve dress. As one of my older posts shows, bell-sleeves are definitely “in” this year. I snagged this dress during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and can’t wait to wear it over the next few months. I’m a sucker for loose and light dresses, especially when the temps are above 80 degrees. This dress comes in so many different colors so my hardest decision was which color to choose! I went with Plum because I felt like it was a great color to lead into fall. As fall approaches in the next month I’ll be giving you some ideas ahead of time so you can begin planning your fall wardrobe. I hope to inspire you, whether you’re shopping online or in the mall.

Also, I did a little something different this week. You’ll notice as you scroll through the pictures above I have a tote in some with no belt and then I’m styling the bell-sleeve dress with a belt. I know I’ll be wearing it a few different ways this fall so I thought I’d show you another option. Which look is your favorite?

*Note – I’m wearing a small but other customers of this dress have said it’s short and had to go ONE SIZE UP. So if you have longer legs or are taller than 5’5, keep that in mind!

I’m also looking for some new post ideas. Is there something you’d like to see more or less of? Something different? Comment below or send an email to emma@callitchic.com with your questions and thoughts!

Happy Monday! I’m currently sitting lakeside this weekend. We haven’t been out once this whole summer so I’ve been dying to come. The lake is my absolute favorite place. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Oklahoma or what but there’s something about being out at the lake that makes me feel like I’m escaping life even if just for a day or two. Don’t we all need relaxation every once in awhile?

This has been such a fun post. I recently purchased THESE converse and was wondering how I was going to style them. I loved the idea from other bloggers with taking a pair of white sneakers and throwing it together with a dress or skirt. It seems very 80s or 90s to me! Speaking of 90s, MY choker necklace is back in style. If someone would’ve told me this at the age of 7 they’d be cool again I would’ve kept a few! I loved them growing up and I think it’s so cool that things like white sneakers and choker necklaces we wore as kids are back in style today as adults. This skirt was a recent find from the TopShop collection. I love the cut-out lace detailing. I chose to dress it down in a fun way. This is a perfect summer wear! What are your thoughts on my 90s vibe summer outfit?

Cold Shoulder Chic

Open Shoulder Nude Midi Dress

Happy Monday! My usual photographer and husband, Austin, is currently in Boston this weekend helping a friend move back to Tulsa. So sometimes I get lucky and the talented Lauryn Tumpkin helps me out like she did with my first post here. Thank you, Lauryn!

I picked THIS dress up from the TopShop Collection at Nordstrom. The nude (I say pinkish) cold shoulder midi dress is fun to dress up or down. For attending a wedding, dress it up like I did or for a fun brunch date try mixing it with a pair of Converse shoes and a choker necklace.

*FYI – I love TopShop but I learned with their brand I had to size up one size on everything.

Fashion Colors of The Year

Happy Monday… I feel like I should stop saying that. Let’s be honest, most Mondays, at least Monday mornings are not all that happy. You’re dreaming of the past weekend and already plotting next weekend’s adventures. That’s why I bring you this every Monday. I hope to inspire your Monday Blues with a touch of happiness, creativity, or inspiration for the week to come. I post on Mondays because we all need an escape sometimes. With that being said, happy Monday!

For those of you who keep up with the world of style and fashion you know that the colors of 2016 include Rose Quartz and Serenity. A few of you may have scoffed at the idea of this, but the vision behind these colorings were to find colors that make us feel comfortable; who doesn’t love that? I think the offset of pinks and blues is something to admire and maybe adopt into your own wardrobe this summer. I did and I’m glad, because and I’ve fallen in love with this coloring combo. Check out examples here of how to wear your Colors of The Year best. Oh and I wanted to let you guys know that I picked my cute tank up from Urban Outfitters for $7! So if you’re in the Tulsa area, stop by and try this super comfy tank on. I’ve linked a few here, here and here.

All Wrapped Up

Summer Kimono Wrap Style Floral Dress

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend. I’m writing this while packing for a quick getaway to the family lake house. I picked this wrap kimono dress up from Dolce Vita a few weeks ago. The beautiful colors in this wrap dress are PERFECT for summer. This dress would be a hit for weekends at the beach or lake, a summer BBQ, or a brunch date! I’ve never worn a kimono dress before but love the way it fits. It’s ties around at the waist and effortlessly flows throughout the shoulders and arms as well from the waist down. For the Tulsa area ladies, you can pick this dress at Dolce Vita (just reordered!) and for the not-so-close girls, I’ve found some beautiful similar pieces here, here, and here that would be gorgeous choices! If you’re looking for shorter wrap kimono dress options, try this or this!
