Wow, it’s been a busy week. Even though I’ve been inside the office all day every day, I know the weather has been perfect: sunny, breezy, not so humid. This is rare in Boston.

So despite the fact I’ve been gravitating towards darker fall clothes recently, I wanted to break out the brights with this vibrant Amanda Uprichard dress and hot pink blazer from Zara. I wore this dress to an event once, but wanted an excuse to wear it informally (also, I felt I needed a break from heels). With the addition of these black and gold buckled Seychelles booties, the look is unfussy and transitions well from summer to fall. I always love the unexpected look of feminine pieces mixed with some tougher elements, and I have a feeling I’ll be wearing these moto-style booties a lot this season.

Hope you had a great weekend! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but here’s an outfit that I really love. This dress by Clover Canyon (LA-based brand that designs these super vivid and eclectically printed pieces) was a TJ Maxx discovery that I felt compelled to buy. It’s a few seasons old, of course – but I like the baroque-inspired floral print, and I’m excited to dress it down with boots and a leather jacket this fall, too.

For a more intense look, I went all out – styling the heavily patterned dress with a sequined cardigan, smoky crystal necklace and silver hologram pumps. Plus, the bright red lips and nails (I used an at-home gel manicure kit by Red Carpet Manicure!) add contrast to all the darker tones. Sometimes you just want to look like a party, and a wild dress like this will often do the trick.
