Kora Rae Carolina Dress


Dress: Kora Rae (use 'MALLORYSAUER1' at checkout for $50 off!) / Shoes: Chinese Laundry

Happy birthday to me! I celebrated my birthday this weekend (actual birthday was Monday) and had an absolutely wonderful weekend. Spent time with friends, finally went to Ophelia's, a hip new restaurant in Denver, and ended the celebrations with a fun dinner with friends. Low key and relaxing - just what I needed.

I am absolutely obsessed with this dress. I wore it to work on Monday - apparently big girl duties still apply, even on your birthday. It was the perfect dress for feeling pretty while still being professional. Oh but does this dress go way beyond the office. This dress can be worn FOUR different ways. Yes, four. I've shown two of them above - the light blue layer can flip forward or backwards. In addition to these two looks, there is a sash that comes with the dress that can be worn with the front piece flipped either way. How cool is that?!

I typically don't spend a ton of money on one single piece of clothing (shoes are obviously excluded - sorry, Mom), but this dress was definitely worth the price tag. I'm a sucker for anything versatile. The silhouette is classic, the color is timeless and the quality is fantastic. I will absolutely invest in pieces that will last - both in terms of quality and seasonality. This dress is no exception.

Kora Rae is a new brand to me and I am in LOVE with their pieces! I encourage you to check out their selection - something might be right up your alley! Best news? Use 'MALLORYSAUER1' at checkout for $50 off your purchase!

Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
