Date Night with Karina Dresses & My Refined Style Link Up!

July 7, 2016
Everyone knows I love my Karina dresses for work and play, but this time around I decided to style my Karina for a date night!

I was excited to see Karina had their Audrey dress in scarlet red, my favorite color!

FYI: The red looks a bit orange-red in the photos for some reason, but it is more of a true red.

I went bold with all red, including shoes and bag!

Then I decided to try it dressed down as well.  Here’s a casual look with a chambray shirt, gladiator sandals, and a my white Rebecca Minkoff bag.  

I love how versatile Karina dresses are!  Plus they’re always flattering, wrinkle-free, machine washable, and made in the USA!
We’re planning a getaway soon and you know this will be in my suitcase for sure!
