What To Wear: Cinco de Mayo

As promised, we’re keeping this fiesta rolling all week long! It wouldn’t be Cinco de Mayo if we didn’t talk about brightly colored dresses and some fabulous accessories. Here’s the thing with Cinco de Mayo – it’s the perfect excuse to go as bold, patterned and colorful as you’d like! So, personally, I vote for layering it up. A kicking party dress, a vibrant clutch, a pretty scarf and a classic wedge to keep the whole look from getting too carried away. (Although, by all means, I’m always an advocate for getting carried away if you feel so inclined!) The only thing missing is a margarita in one hand and a fistful of chips and guac in the other.
