Safari, So Near Scarf

Safari, So Near Scarf

It’s time for another Modcloth Monday, and I’m here to share with you one of my favorite recent scarf finds. This safari-inspired scarf by Modcloth is perfect for creating a layered look, being a little larger and on the sheer side, it can be looped around the neck several times or thrown on as a shawl. I love the navy trim offset by the vibrant red-orange, and the peek of zebra stripes that are not overly in-your-face like many animal print accessories can be. Scarves are a fashion staple for me all year round, and I just know this will look just as great over LWDs and khaki shorts in the summer as it will on my camel sweaters and muted blouses in the winter.

Yep, here we go again with another lust-worthy item in the color of the year – orange! This beauty is a chic sleeveless minidress by DVF in my favorite color. It features a cowl boatneck, dainty belted waist and pleats at the waistline, giving off a perfectly poised and tailored look. Although, it’s secretly the slant pockets that have me sold, because more dresses and shirts should simply have pockets. Wear with a platform gladiator (like these gorgeous ones) or t-strap sandal and a white blazer for effortless colorblocking, perfect for spring weddings or a hot date. DVF, you really can do no wrong.

Poppy Nude Chiffon Inserts Dress

If there is one color I think you should pull to the front of your closet this year, it’s orange. Not only is it my favorite color in general, the more red-orange and tangerine shade is going to be the trendy color of 2012, according to the Pantone Color Institute. And if you’ve followed this blog for some time, you know we have a soft spot for dresses with sexy cutouts and inserts (as seen here, here, and here). That said, I can’t help but love this hot bodycon mini dress by David Lerner. The bright poppy shade is gorgeously off-set by the, very carefully placed, nude inserts along the sides under the bust. Instead of always highlighting my jewelry, shoes, or makeup, I think I have finally found the perfectly bright and bold statement dress to wear out.
