Here's the thing about floral dresses: They're both some of the easiest things to throw on because the print itself is an accessory, but also some of the most difficult things to dress up. The line between elevated and over-the-top is especially thin with any strong print, and even an additional piece of jewelry can be the thing to push it over the edge. When G and I went out for a mid-week, early dinner at one of our favorite restaurants Vernetti, I wore a Cupcakes and Cashmere dress from our fall collection and feel like I finally cracked the code on accessorizing it. Adding a few pieces, all in the same color—a velvet headband, sunglasses, nails, and heels—brought it from effortless office casual to an outfit I'd be happy to wear to any date.
