Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 51: Summer Red

July 30, 2014

Wearing: French Connection dress (similar) | J.Crew necklace | Nine West heels (similar) | Dana Buchmann via Kohls clutch | Michael Kors Watch

Hello darlings! Today Jacqueline and I styled summer red as our trend, and I'm loving how fabulous this dress looks with a top knot. I wore this for our rehearsal dinner, and haven't worn it since, so I decided to pull it out and style it a little differently! I chose a classic twisted pearl necklace and some chic leopard heels to dress up this fancy frock. How would you style this dress? Do you believe it could be dressed down? I think pairing it with an olive green vest and cognac boots in the Fall would dress it down a bit, right? Hope you are having a fabulous week!

The lovely Jacqueline and I post our link-ups every Thursday! This week our theme is outfits that feature summer red! Come back weekly to visit us! (Click after the break to link-up!)

1. We kindly ask that you follow the two hosts: Elle from Living in Color Style and Jacqueline from Stylin' In St. Louis via Bloglovin or GFC! We don't have a guest host this week! (The first two links in the link-up.)

2. Use the button provided on Elle or Jacqueline's side bar or link back to the link-up on your blog.

This week's spotlight is Amy of Cupcakes & Couture. Her patterned outfit from last week is beyond amazing, so make sure to stop by her blog and say hello!
