Cobalt Cut Outs


There is nothing in this world that screams simple sophistication to me more than a shift dress. Easy, shift shapes are the one-stop shop to chic – both on and off the clock – as far as I’m concerned.

Flats and a statement belt are a natural and quite frankly practical, pairings to the timeless body. Therefore, I have found this to be my summer uniform.

    Hi Brenna,
    Could you showcase more cruelty free accessories (bags, shoes, belts made of vegan leather) and cosmetics on your blog? That will be a great help and much appreciated! Thanks!

    • Hello,

      I will try to do a better job of highlighting it, but I can’t focus on it in fear of offending or alienating some of my readers.


  6. Love this dress! I love the cut outs at the top of the dress.
