painted plaid

If you have been following me along for a while, you know my love for Karina Dresses. I love their clean, ladylike and timeless designs coupled with fun prints and colors. My favorite design for special occasions is the Megan. The feminine neckline paired with the clever shoulder design makes the Megan an outstanding dress. My current favorite from the signature line is this dress HERE and I have this one HERE on rotation during the warmer months.

For work, I prefer the Rudy designs like this painted plaid version I am wearing today. The Ruby’s v-neck bodice features added coverage, which I love. It works great with or without blazers and I like to layer a delicate, chiffon scarf underneath. I find the 3/4 length sleeves very practical and comfortable. This version in taupe HERE has been on rotation since the fall. It layers well with thicker tights, the fabric has great substance and the neckline is very attractive yet there is no need for me to be self-conscious.

Added bonus when it comes to the Karina Dresses is that they are all so easy to maintain. The fabric doesn’t change after washing it. I like to turn my dresses inside out before throwing them into the washer. I dry them on medium low and like to take them out of the dryer while they are still slightly damp and finish drying on the hanger. No ironing needed, ever!
