A Flirty, Preppy, and Fun Outfit

Recently I had the assignment of creating an online profile to document me and my work as a sort of resume website. After designing the website I realized that I didn't have any photos for the homepage that were fitting and would look good. So, I asked one of my new friends here at ISU who loves taking photos to work her magic on me. The photos turned out amazing and I thought they would be perfect for my first style post. (If you're interested, here is the link to my portfolio: http://madisonpincombe.wixsite.com/portfolio)

I chose one of my favorite outfits for the photoshoot:

The orange/red (depends on the light) shift dress from Francesca's is fun and easy to wear. It has a lace overlay with an abstract floral pattern. The outfit options with a shift style dress are limitless! When it is warmer all I add are the accessories but when its begins to get chillier, you can throw on a jean jacket as a casual cover up or even a blazer as a more formal option.

My chunky pearl necklace is also from Francesca's (Francesca's tends to be my go). It is a collection of layered pearls and rhinestones along with gold accents. I would define my personal style as preppy and classy and this necklace fits that perfectly. I wear it often with many different kinds of outfits. Whether it be an outfit with a button down shirt, an outfit with a dress, or something else completely, this necklace pulls an outfit together and makes the wearer look put together!

For shoes I decided on black peep block heel sandals with gold buckle detailing. I just got this pair of heels this summer and I am already obsessed! They match with all kinds of outfits and surprisingly they are decently comfortable and easy to walk in. Something you should know about my style interests is that I actually love to wear heels! They add so much to an outfit and accentuate my long legs. I wore heels for entire days at high school countless times. So, I love finding cute heels that will work with many outfits and be practical for my busy life!

The full outfit:

The cute relaxed nature of this dress creates the "flirty" feeling. When ever I'm wearing it I just can't help but dance and spin. I hope you enjoyed my first style post! Stay tuned for many more! Fall has hit Ames, IA and it is one of my absolute favorite seasons fashion wise so I will definitely document some of my outfits. Thanks again for reading.

Much love, Madison
