When Laura at Walking in Memphis in High Heels asked me to co-host this week’s Trend Spin link up, I wasn’t quite sure what to wear. The theme is emerald and despite it being last year’s Pantone Color of the Year, I didn’t think I had a piece of emerald in my closet. (By the way, I don’t have any of this year’s color Radiant Orchid either. Bad blogger!)
What I did find was this green shift dress that I got last fall from Simple Southern Style. I had already paired it up two ways on the blog with casual and classy looks. This time I tried out a different fashion persona with a sassy look. I’m not sure where I’d wear the sassy look in real life but I guess that’s part of the fun of playing dress up.

TREND SPIN LINKUP
Join us for this week’s trend spin link up and show us your emerald looks.
What could possibly be more versatile than a great shift dress? It can be dressed up or down with ease and made perfectly appropriate for any season.
Simple Southern Style recently sent me not one, but two shift dresses to style from their collection.
The first is this gorgeous green Holiday Shift. For a fall daytime look, I paired it simply with a leopard scarf and cognac riding boots.

For my second look, heels, a statement making necklace and my favorite ruffled wrap make it holiday party appropriate.

The second dress, this City Lights Shift is perfectly paired for fall with colorful cobalt tights and ankle boots.
