As we know, Michigan’s summer weather is unpredictable. Usually April showers bring May flowers, but we’ve seen a lot of gray skies recently. When I’m torn between breaking out my summer flare or sticking to my post winter basic colors, I pick something that says Simple Sass. Topshop’s Strappy Scallop Dress featuring the square neck look has jersey soft comfort and pops with the white striped color. The square neck gives great definition to the cheek bones and makes the simple dress have some edge. If planning to order and your height is on the shorter side, I’d recommend going up one size to find the perfect fit and length.

Casual or classy? It’s all in the shoe! Whether I’m playing in the rain or strutting in the sunshine, the Chuck Taylor Classic’s are fit for anything casual. Everyone has a pair and they’ll never go out of style. Think about it, ask a college girl what shoe they’ll be sporting to their football tailgate and get the common response “my go-to converse.” Not only do we wear these with our spirit gear, we wear them everywhere! With this dress in particular, the shoe choice really brings the dress down to a more casual vibe. That’s the beauty of Simple Sass! You can’t go wrong putting these two together to complete your outfit.

What are we missing? Every look needs a great accessory and who better to buy one from than the fashionable Tory Bruch jewelry line. The Logo Disc Rope Bracelet is hot on the market and just recently on sale! The Rope Bracelet is tied together with two of my favorite bold colors, red and blue. This universal piece can be worn with the casual outfit represented above or one that’s a tad fancier. This piece should be considered an everyday wear.

How To: Have a basic color scheme outfit that needs some sass? Try putting your hair up in a high ponytail, letting the bangs hang a little. This adds a new dimension to the look and with some eye makeup can make the outfit pop even more!
