Another balancing act with a soft flowy dress and an edgy cropped jacket.  This dress makes me feel very romantic, but at the same time – I’m not trying to look like a Hallmark Valentine’s Day card, so the black contrasts also help in keeping the look casual and playful!

I like the bright coral on you.

Looks great and you're right, the jacket gives it a little twist and keeps it from being a too-literal "romantic outfit."

Hi Londyn!
I'm a long-time follower of your blog. I've always admired how tastefully and creatively you put together your work outfits...it's been one of the things I've been most excited about starting a career! I just graduated from college, and I was wondering if you would be able to give your readers any tips you have about dressing for job interviews. Aside from being an amazing dresser, I believe you also work in HR. I'd appreciate your tips!

I love this look. Totally something I would wear. The softness and feminity of the dress balance out the edginess and rock'n'roll appeal of the cropped biker jacket. Love the necklace too and especially those awesome black wedges. I am on the lookout for a pair of cute, soft and pretty comfortable black wedges for this summer. Something 3 and a half to 4 and a half inches tall. You reccomend any? (Write me back, thanks.)
