You would never guess summer is coming to an end with these over 100 temps!  To combat the late summer heat I need a nice easy summer dress and this mark. Style Safari dress is perfect.  It features a fit and flare style thats not only flattering but keeps you cooler.  The blue, white, black and grey safari paisley print is super fun and fitting for late August.  The contrasting design at the waist defines while the piping gives a flattering illusion.



Red, white and blue is actually all happening in this dress but I amped up it’s late summer style with a red lip and white accents in addition to my leaf jewelry (mark., old).  I’m wearing the mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Fired Up for my red.

If you follow that “can’t wear white after Labor Day” rule you better get it in all now, because these white accents are white hot!  These mark. So Clear To Me lucite heels have been a summer staple in the world of alicia, along with this mark. Total Perfection bag.  (see here, here and here).

This safari style outfit definitely is perfect for late summer but I can see it transitioning into fall really well.  I would pair it with some black booties and a cute denim jacket!  Or even with a cardi and pumps for work, either way definitely a versatile dress!  Wear now and wear later style if you will.

How I Wore It – Safari Chic

How I wore it continues with the last installment… Safari Chic!  You saw how I wore the shift dress and skinny pants so for the last trend I went a little out of the box… and it paid off!

How I Wore It - Safari Chic

How I Wore It – Safari Chic

The first thing I thought of when I heard “safari chic” was an Express ad that had this sequin shift under a military dress belted from a few years back.  I loved the pic so much that I got the full look!  It’s hard to wear sequin during the day, but wearing it this way makes it totally do-able!  And what’s more chic than sequins!?!  And what’s more safari than a pocketed earth toned dress!?!?  Put those 2 together and safari chic!  All that’s left is to accessorize!

Safari Chic Details

Safari Chic Details

I needed a safari arm party to go with my safari look so I used a combination of mark. In The Mix bracelets and mark. Big Mix Up Bracelets.  Of course I pulled out my favorite ring from last fall the Ring Me Up Stretch Ring, and the new favorite Stack and style rings also from mark.  To bring it all together I used the mark. Studs and Style Stretch belt, a wardrobe must have in my opinion.  And what’s a safari trip without some aviators and a faux ostrich bag, The Hot To Handle bag both from mark.  You can shop the accessories at my eboutique:

Safari chic reaches from head to toe with the Wedge Right In Wedges, a new arrival from mark.  Seriously these wedges are cute comfy and completely on trend in nude with an almost aztec like detail pattern on the wedge.  I’ve been wearing them non stop and not a single pinch, pain or blister!  Shop them at

Like I said this look paid off because it was my winning look for mark.’s how you wear it contest!  I have a bunch of safari chic goodies headed my way and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  Check out the other winning looks! (from @markgirl ‘s facebook page)
