Coral Midi Dress and Floral Coat

Since the moment this Roksanda coral midi dress hit stores a little over a year ago, I was dying to get my paws on it.  In a truly (truly) heartbreaking twist of fate, I didn’t successfully snag it before it sold out and it’s been gnawing away at me for months (#regrets y’all).  I was ecstatic a month ago when it miraculously popped up for sale at The Outnet (i.e. I audibly squealed, which potentially shows a deep-seated misalignment of priorities which we can address at a later time… or not).  Unfortunately, albeit unsurprisingly, this exact dress is now sold out again, but so many similar pieces from the same collection (one of my favorite collections ever) are still available at an enormous discount.  I’ve included my favorites in the widget below…

While I paired the dress with this black and white jacquard coat (which is also old and sold out… I’m sorry, please don’t hate me) for a more fashion-forward look for shows during NYFW, the dress serves as a great reminder that you can have tons of fun with style and color while still maintaining a classic, professional look.  I had business meetings throughout the day between shows, and this dress adapted to each situation without a hitch.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve become completely obsessed with statement earrings of late—particularly those of the sleek, geometric variety.  The gold circle earrings I’m wearing today are Argento Vivo, which has one of the best (and most affordable) collections.  Confession: I also bought them in silver as well as this cool mixed-metal pair.  A few more of my favorites below…

  1. I love the colors in this dress! They’re so vibrant and beautiful! This dress definitely has me looking forward to spring. The coat is a great added touch to kind of tone down the colors in the dress if you wanted to do that. They’re a perfect match. Lovely

    Love the collar detail on this dress. I didn’t think I liked the pink sleeves showing with the coat on, but they are growing on me as I look at each picture.

  3. I’ve always loved this color combination, especially in the spring, so I can see why you were obsessed with it, Mary!!
    Even my step mom (the 60’s model on my blog) has a bolero with these colors—they are so energizing!!

  4. Wow, the combination of the dress color and that floral coat is so amazing.
    I adore the fact the is such color block between the wrist area and rest part of the dress.
    This is so beautiful.
    You look like a classic elegant American woman wearing it ♥
