It’s Friday, so for today’s post, I chose my new favorite dress that is perfect to wear while escaping from the nine-to-five grind. I’m enchanted by its design, which combines two contrasting elements: seriousness and playfulness. While the top part of the dress, with a high-cut neckline and long sleeves, presents a demure silhouette, the skirt, with a playful flirty flare, is all about the fun. As you saw in a previous post (here), I’m deeply into the thin scarf trend. Thus, I’ve entertained myself creating different ways to add this fashionable accessory to the outfit. The weather has been so pleasant that I’m still enjoying my beloved summer sandals.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. My mom and I are planning to go to New York City for a couple of days to celebrate her birthday. On this trip, we want to spend our limited time enjoying the amazing galleries of art. However, since we’ll be very close to the stores on 5th Avenue, we might not be able to resist the temptation to check out a few new pieces.

Thank you very much for visiting!

    This outfit looks absolutely fabulous on you! It actually looks very fitting for a 5th Avenue shopping day. I hope the weather stays warm for you. The window displays will be switched out soon enough too, so taking a stroll down 5th and up Madison is a must! Hope you girls have fun. 🙂

    the dress is cool, but your legs are perfect. Are you a ballet dancer?
    I really like the pretty mood of this outfit

    Dear Danielle,
    happy birthday to your Mom! I wish you both a great weekend at NYC and good shopping opportunities at Fifth Avenue! You look so gorgeous as always and your legs are fabulous! You have so beautiful long and slight legs, you can wear these short skirts and high heels very good. I like your flirty skirt very much and I can’t wait to read your next fashion post about this beautiful thin scarf.
    Have a great birthday and shopping time!
    Jasmin
