Like I mentioned last week, I really saw this dress as a super versatile piece that could be worn multiple ways all summer. I definitely see it coming with me on my trip back to the east coast next month — I only have a small amount of room in my suitcase (I rarely check my bag) and I’ll be there for 10+ days, so I’ll need to maximize my space with items that can be mixed and matched! I’ll definitely be dressing it up at night for dinners, and down during the day for shopping and trips to the Beach Plum for lobster rolls!
Here I’ve opened up the dress and removed the belt to make it into a long flowy vest to wear over white jeans. I think it would look equally great with darker skinny denim, and maybe even some flares. I’m now debating trying out this look with a pair of jean shorts… I’ll let you know!
The past few years I’ve really been focused on purchasing items that are less trendy or “fast fashion” and more timeless and classic. I spotted this Who What Wear x Target dress the other day and was so distracted with trying to frantically find it in my size that I completely forgot about the vitamins that I actually went in there for! (I like Olly if you’re wondering!)
I love the shirtdress style with the optional belted waist — totally classic, but able to be dressed up or down with the addition of jewelry, heels, sandals, or even jeans! Its also super lightweight and will be perfect for dinner or drinks on hot summer nights. I will note that its not as opaque as I’d like it to be, so I wore a slip underneath!
Check back next week for Part 2 where I’ll style the dress in a totally different way. This dress will definitely be in heavy rotation in my wardrobe this summer!
