Sleeveless Collared Dress

I don't know about all of you, but I am in love with sleeveless collared dresses. For some reason them make me think of the 1950s, something about them screams retro to me (of course in the 50's there was much more volume in the skirts of dresses). As much as I love running out in this dress on it's own, I wanted to dress it up so I added this structured blazer. Pairing a structured piece with a flowing dress such as this really plays up the best features of the dress. I love this look for a casual spring event or even for something business casual (preferably your legs aren't as long as mine or the skirt of the dress be a bit longer). Either way this look is fun and comfortable and can be made more casual with flats instead of heels or a cardigan instead of a blazer.

Hope you like the look and I'll see you all on Monday! Oh! And stay posted as I have a great surprise in the works for you next week :)
