The weather is starting to heat up, and that means that the warmer layers are starting to come off. ☀️ After I had so much fun wearing and writing about this red printed midi dress, I was super excited to try another red dress. And this time I wanted to go full-on red! ❤️ 💃

When I found this Elizabeth and James dress, I fell in love! The silhouette of this dress is so unique compared to most of the dresses I wear, as well as ones that I've seen available. And the deep red color of this dress is a perfect summer oxblood.

There are two sets of ties on the back of this dress which can be done in a variety of styles. I've seen this dress on a few different retailers' websites, and each model tied them a little differently. Personally, I tied both sets together in the back to create a modern version of a bustle, which I haven't seen anywhere 😎! The fit of this dress is quite loose and flowy, and doesn't cling to the body. The addition of the waist accent ruffle is just lovely! If red isn't your color, this dress also comes in both white and a pale yellow color that are perfect for summer!

In order to keep the red brilliantly noticeable, I styled this dress with all-black accessories. I picked this headscarf because of the 1920's feeling of the dress. I also loved the way the earrings complemented it. I've been such a fan of statement earrings this season, and these black tassel earrings are so fun.

This look was inspired by the 1920's style of the flapper girls, and their independent and free attitude. I've been looking for fashion inspiration in different places lately, especially going back and using my 'History of Fashion' class from college. Where do you find your style inspiration?
