Last week’s Trending Tuesday was all my #marble inspo, today it’s how I applied it in my life with the mark. Soft T Dress!  Middle of summer means it’s hot and all the new fashion is coming out for pre-fall.  Which means you need something that can beat the heat and look on trend as we transition  in a few months.  A t-shirt dress is that item!  Put a marble print on it and you got something unique and on trend.

For summer wear I like this look pretty minimal, which makes it work appropriate.  I like it all kept in a monochromatic color scheme, black white and bit of metallic.  All I added was a metallic skinny belt for some shape (too bad I didn’t have one in black, white or silver!  Adding that to the wish list…)

Anchored in black, a structured bag and cap toe pumps also make this dress work appropriate for a summer day.  However, you could easily make it weekend ready with black sandals and lighter bag!

This is your no-fuss, hassle free, easy summer wear piece! I love how versatile it is and I can’t wait to wear it in the fall (stay tuned for a fall friendly take on this dress).  For now I’ll just wear with some sharp silver jewelry, clean white mani and a petal pink lip with Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lipstick in Petal Pink.

Word Of Alicia Review of the mark. Soft T Dress: I’m totally digging the print, obviously!  But what’s also great about this dress is it’s a relaxed fit and a little longer in length so more versatile for more occasions. Originally I was disappointed this wasn’t a cotton t-shirt dress, it’s polyester so it will retain it’s shape as you wear it and therefore a little thicker so no show through, which I like.   I also dig the pattern all the way around the dress. The marble print is really what makes this dress unique!

Summer is in full swing, long days, warm nights and official LWD season. Sun bronzed skin looks excellent in a little white dress so why not bust your favorite dress and let’s accessorize it.  A little white dress is just as versatile as a little black dress so anything from simple to sparkling goes!

For today’s look summer look I wanted to keep that clean light pallet with a bit of a boho charm.  The easiest way to do that is with the mark. Natural Charm Necklace.  This statement necklace features rose quartz stones and genuine tiger’s eye with a little sparkle.  I love how nicely it plays against the white.  It’s really the impact accessory for this look and really all you need.

Paired with the incredible necklace I really like this mark. Irresistibly Iridescent Ring.  They’re not exact matches but they have that same relaxed summer vibe.  Worn with a LWD they really take it to a chic level for a summer look.

Now that I got the statement pieces on, for the rest of my accessories it’s more about compliments.  Like a skinny rose gold belt and a simple rose gold bangle (mark. Looking Sharp Bracelets).

I don’t curl my hair often in the summer but this look called for some boho waves created with the mark. Curl Time Styling Wand and a little mark. Curl To Curl Mist sprayed on first.  Even though it was a little work the look is still easy.  And too keep it easy I even wore flats!  (sparkly sandal flats from Nine West, but still flats!)

This simple LWD just went from boring to boho with a little sparkle.  I love this look for all your summer activities from BBQ to Pool Party to Bridal/Baby Shower and beyond.  Just amping up a few accessories but keeping them easy and summer friendly really makes it all come together.  That is… when you don’t have the ultimate puppy accessory!  You can shop these pieces at my eBoutique and use promo code HIAGAIN for 20% off and/or FREE shipping!

Puppies are the best accessory!

PS.  Look at that highlighter glow!  That’s the mark. First Blush Face Compact… you can see me singing it’s praise here!

mark. Rocking Pastels Necklace goes a little edgy

One item I can’t get enough of this summer is the mark. Rocking Pastels Necklace.  You might remember Jackie from Living After Midnight and I styled this item soft for our Wear and Share Wednesday so this time I took it a little edgy.

I paired the Rocking Pastels Necklace ($40) with a LBD, some killer neon yellow ankle straps and jewelry with some serious angles to them!  Dress is Kenneth Cole, ankle strap sandals are Prabal Gurung for Target and the Great Angles Earrings and Rock Out Rock Ring are mark.  (in and out of my sale section on my eBoutique).

Serious Angles On These Pastel Pieces!

The killer angular shapes on these pieces really make the sweet pastel shades way more edgy!  Just what you need to keep them from looking too sweet!  Finish your look with super straight hair, bright lips and fun liner.  That bright California sun doesn’t really allow you to see the details to well but take my word for it… line your lids with a thick line in mint using the Color Me In Eye Crayon in Mint Candy then layer your black liquid liner over that using a thinner line so the mint shows above, use Get In Line Hookeup Eyeliner in Painted Black.  Follow with lots of mascara using Lash Act in blackest black.  For your face, contour with Bronze Pro and dab on Just Blushing in Afterglow on the apples of your cheeks.  Finish it all of with a bright lip color.  I layered 2 Make It Rich lip crayons, both Peony and Punch!  All the products used are available at my eBoutique.

Complete the look with mint liner, coral cheeks and bright lips!
