This week I decided to play with a fun and flowy outfit inspired by Tom Ford’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. I usually gravitate toward a more structured look, but this is so easy and elegant that I could not resist! Ford’s collection is all about beauty brought on by nostalgic bohemian silhouettes and details.

Wanting to keep my look effortless and earthy, I paired an all-black fringe dress with black flip flops. I love my trusty tote bag from Forever 21: the keeper of my school books and blogging materials. I didn’t expect to have this bag for long, but the quality has exceeded my expectations and I never leave home without it. I kept my accessories simple with a long amethyst pendant and my daily array of bracelets. This outfit is perfect for walking around campus on a warm day or going shopping. Even so, I get compliments on this dress wherever I go and no matter how I wear it.

What I love most about this outfit is that it is so very versatile. Trading the flip flops could for wedges and the tote for a clutch could instantly bring more glamour into this look. You have the freedom to dress it up or down however you like! Despite its unique details this dress has become one of my basic pieces. I am anticipating wearing this dress in the fall with a leather jacket and booties for the vintage-inspired look that I often strive for.

For a finishing touch I added a light shade of pink to my lips using the Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien by NARS. I wear this color almost every day and it stays on great while adding the perfect amount of pop to any look.
