My Easy Everyday Look

Ivy & Blu Faux Leather Dress

This is what I wear when I’m too tired to pull myself together but can’t let anyone think that’s the case.  (This is most of the time, if we are being honest… shhh!)  I love a good leather dress (but especially love the rose gold touches on this one and the fact that it is vegan so it’s a really great price.)  Add my lace up booties and a trench… and I’m ready for a day full of meetings in under ten minutes.

Happy Friday!  I can’t believe the week is finally over – and that I head to Mexico tomorrow AM.  Hooray for that! 😉

    I was just looking at those earrings online – so pretty! You can’t go wrong with a classic shift dress + trench = no fail combination…you look gorgeous!!

    P.S. My kids are obsessed with Aslan’s instagram account – when they get home from school, they always ask if there are any new pics of him. 🙂

    Gorgeous look for just throwing this outfit together! It’s simple and I like that. But still has enough detail and edge

  13. I’ve seen a few leather dresses recently and have fallen in love…just not with the prices! I love that this one is vegan, it definitely looks real and not overly shiny/fake. I’ll have to be on the lookout!
