Simply, Karina



The best thing about wearing a dress from Karina Dresses, is the ease of it. You simply, put the dress on and you're ready to go. While I LOVE to style my Karinas (you can see some of my previous stylings HERE, HERE,  & HERE ,) the simple fact of the matter is that I usually just slip one over my head, pair it with a jacket/sweater, put on some footwear, and I'm good to go. And I go everywhere in my Karina: to the market, to lunch, to work, or to the pub to meet some pals for a pint. I dress. And go. 

The way you think of a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, is the way I think about my Karina. It's basic, its classic, it goes everywhere. But unlike jeans and a Tee, it's not mere utility; my Karina still retains my poetry. It's fun and flirty, and femme extraordinaire.

No need to focus on dressing, unless I want to. Time can be used for other things, like your real life.  My time has been valuable real estate lately- so I was loving the fact that it took me less than 5 minutes to put together this outfit and head out the door. 

My outfit consists of:
  • one simple accessory
  • a pair of tights
  • brown suede boots
  • and one amazing dress. 

And that's my point: when you want style that's good on the go, you wear your Karina. It's as simple as that. 

The Deets: A limited edition print- polka dots on a chocolate brown breathable microfiber. 
The Style: The Megan in a short sleeve. This is a curves flattering, cross-bodice, flirty A-line.
The Feel: Pretty damn comfortable.

pretty dress and she's got some real style. But how come her face was concealed in the first picture, and then not in the 2nd picture?

Hi Bree! Her, is in fact, me. Why did I put dots in the pictures? Call it artistic license- I wanted to convey the simplicity of style- and how effective it can be- my "point" so to speak- which is how easy it is to wear a Karina dress. Also, I liked the way it looked, sort of like a big polka dot! Thanks for your comments.

I do love an effortlessly simple frock. It's really nice, and has a slight 40s feel to it too. Have a great weekend.

I'm getting closer to buying one, and the polka dots might cinch the deal. I'll have to have another look at their styles.

You make them look great!

Karina dresses are so beautiful! I love that they're made in the US and in such a variety of prints and styles. Yours fits amazingly and looks so chic.

Buttercup Rocks said...

Being a dress freak, I'm jealous we don't have Karina in the UK. I love everything I've ever seen you wear from them and you always style them fabulously!

Ofelia said...

You look comfortable and chic!
I love the dress cut and how it fits around the upper body.

joyatri said...

Such a flattering style and with a retro vibe to boot! I spent most of my life wearing separates and only discovered the ease of a great dress a couple years ago. Now, there's no turning back.

I love dresses as much as you do! Your Karina dresses look great and obviously they are so comfortable as well. I especially love wrap dresses.

Thank you so much for listing me on your blogroll! I am really looking forward to share ideas.

Another day of polka dots! The Karina dress fits you perfectly and I love the movement, which is almost a polka dot twirl.
