2 Ways to Wear a Red Wrap Dress For The Holidays
the style sauce // red dress // fashion blog // womens fashion ideas // date night look

I love red. I wear it year round, but it definitely makes an even bigger splash in my closet during the holidays. That being said, there's nothing like a red dress to make you feel like a real life dancing girl emoji, and I love the two I'm wearing in this post which are both from Someday's Lovin' (coincidentally, btw, not a sponsored post).

In this post,  check out two ways to style a red wrap dress. Both with a leather jacket, but one for a day about the town, and the other look for a more lady-like date night approach with heels. For day time, I opted for a more midi length satin dress, and for date night I love the crushed velvet option that shows a little more skin, which i accessorized with my favorite patent leather shoes right now from Tamara Mellon (they're called the Rendezvous).

Motif Jewelry X The Style Sauce

I recently collaborated with Motif jewelry to curate a special jewelry collection that I wanted all of you to love.  I carefully hand selected these pieces that I would personally want to buy, and wanted to present them to you all as a compilation of the favorite kind of accessories that I love to wear on a day-to-day basis. 

Really, this collection is about versatility, which always works best for the constantly busy woman these days. Our time is precious, and so are versatile jewelry pieces that can really bring an outfit together.  The idea of versatility is encapsulated in the "Link to Each" ring, which looks like two rings but is really one, the Treasure House necklace, and the Secret Choker necklace, which both look like two separate necklaces, as well. Half of the collection is rose gold (my favorite), and the other half is yellow gold. As a Californian, I made the collection based in two different types of gold because I am from the GOLDEN STATE, after all! What I love most about this collection is that it can be worn with jeans and a tee shirt (my LA uniform... of course), or something a little more glam like a blush fur vest and heels. 

I love that each and every piece is unique, yet simple and wearable. 

Check out the entire collection below and when you've found your favorites you can shop them all directly here. Make sure you grab the pieces that you like, though...  my shop comes down March 25th!

I'm so proud to share all of these with you as it's been one of my favorite projects that I've worked on so far. Check all of the collection out below, and I can't wait to see which ones you'll choose as your favorites! 

1) The Treasure House necklace:

--- Made to look like two necklaces, but it's really one. Layered to perfection without you have to wear two different pieces! I like anything that makes my life easier. I love the pearl and crystal detailing, and it looks great with a tee or something a little more dressed up. It's also 925 silver plated gold so won't irritate even the most sensitive skin (like mine!)

2) The Colby Cuff Bracelet:

-- The Colby Cuff Bracelet comes in gold, silver, or black. I love it for it's minimal lines and easy to close clasp. I hardly ever take mine off, an amazing every day piece that can go with almost any other of your favorite accessories.

3) The Pearls at Hand ring

--- This gorgeous ring with claw detailing and pearls looks great with The Treasure House necklace, because hello, pearls!  I love that it's a statement ring without being too much. It's also on sale! Grab one before they're gone.

4) The Secret Choker necklace

--- There has been nothing more trendy and of the moment lately than chokers! For this one I love that there is a dainty rose gold component that is wrapped with black suede-like fabric that creates a bow. Again, it looks like two necklaces which I LOVE! I guess I'm kind of lazy, but the less I have to do to get my jewelry on in the morning, the better... am I right?

5) The Swing in the Wind earrings

--- Admittedly, I don't wear enough earrings. That being said, when I see ones that I love I know I just HAVE to have them. These earrings are one of my favorites from the entire collection and a surefire compliment getter. Wear them with an off the shoulder dress this Spring for some serious va-va-voom. These are also silver plated with rose gold so they won't irritate your ears!

6) The Link to Each ring

--- I've saved the best for last. There's just something about this ring that is perfect for a little glitz in the right places. I hardly ever take it off since it came home with me. I find myself wearing it with a sweater and jeans, but also the first thing I reach for when I need to dress up a pantsuit or something more night time. Again with the two for one, it's one ring connected with a chain so it gives you the perfect stacked look as a midi and regular ring with the ease of having just one piece.

How to Make (Baby) Pink Your Favorite Color This Winter
The Style Sauce Favorite Pink Blog Post

When you think of winter wear pink doesn't usually come to mind, does it? It seems like red's more low-key cousin usually pops up alongside resort wear in the Spring and Summer, but here's 5 ways to incorporate everyone's favorite feminine color into your life in the chicest way during these cooler months. Major perk? You don't have to ditch the color come Spring and Summer, so some of these are classics for all year round. 

1) Pick a muted tone. If there's anything to remember when reaching for pink this year it's that muted is much better. Hot pink is a totally different world, but if you opt for a nude, baby pink, or blush, it's a much easier incorporate into your every day wardrobe. 

2) Wear it in a floral or print.

Florals are everywhere, even in the Fall. Find pink in an embroidered bomber this season or in a silk blouse for a little boom.

3) Opt for a pop of pink in your home.

Not ready to wear pink? Maybe you'll be willing to decorate with it. Pink couches might be my favorite thing, but if you can't commit to that try a candle, pillows, or a piece of art to warm up your space.


4) Choose an accessory.

A pink backpack, scarf, shoe, or pair of sunnies is a great way to wear pink without doing it head to toe. A blush heel would look cute with any little black dress, or a pink backpack goes great with jeans and a tee.

5) As outerwear:

A baby pink jacket is oh so chic. Opt for a wool trench or pink sweater for a warm way to wear this soft and feminine tone all year round.  If you like the one I'm wearing in this post from Azalea SF, check it out here.
