By now, we all know how much I love Sundays, and this week was no different. If you let it, the thought of the work-week ahead and the inevitable dawn of Monday can get ahead of you, which can make Sundays rough and depressing.
Instead, I like to think of Sundays as a fresh start or new beginning. It's like hitting the 'reset' button every week. Speaking of new, pretty much everything I'm wearing in today's look is new to my closet.
This hot-pink, satin slip dress is the epitome of show-stopping. The shiny material screams nighttime, which means this dress practically begged me to wear it during the day. To church, nonetheless.
As much as I love the strappy criss-cross detail at the back, it was a little too risque for the house of the Lord, so I needed something to cover up (and hide the fact that I was bra-less). Enter, bomber jacket.
Truth be told, I didn't own a bomber jacket until like, yesterday. This particular floral bomber jacket was a great introduction because the material isn't super thick (but I was sweating, so definitely great for transitioning into fall) and the floral pattern is great for summer. Since I opted to wear the satin slip dress in the daytime, I needed to add something to neutralize this look. I love the juxtaposition of the cotton, muted-tone bomber jacket against the bright, satin slip dress.
To even out the look and keep it day-friendly, I added nude, suede, chunky-heeled sandals. Although I'm introducing yet another texture to the look, the simplicity of both the color and style of the shoe makes this a good fit.
But y'all know I couldn't keep it too neutral. I threw some pizzazz right back in there with the accessories. Rings on rings on rings. Lots of jewel-tones and gold accents, because clearly I was applying to the mafia and needed to look the part.
I also added a touch of metallic to the look with this pink bag. Just like the satin dress, although the shine and material of the bag hints at evening wear, the color and simplicity of it makes it also daytime appropriate.
Or maybe it's just me.
