I hope all is well with you!
Today is a little but shorter of a post BUT it is a two for one styling post! One of my goals after my break was to focus on styling different pieces different ways. I have struggled with this in the past myself. I'll begin to feel like I'm in a styling rut, like the clothes in my closet are not as interesting to me anymore. That is not always the case though! It is just about figuring out new ways to style them.
Of course, having said that, this dress is a relatively new piece. I got it is another piece I got when my Aunt visited. It is also from the boutique Marti and Liz Shoes. In all honesty, I was not too sure about it right away. I liked the print and the bohemian vibes of it. I'm not sure what it was I was hesitant about, but my Aunt really seemed to like it. So I splurged and figured if I got home and started styling it and continued to feel the same way, I could bring it back.
I'm so glad I got it! I found several ways -pretty quickly I might add- to style it. These are just two of the looks. For this post I wanted to style it in two pretty different ways. I wanted a more summery or at least end-of-summer look and then I wanted a late fall kind of a look.
You maybe surprised to hear this but the late fall look was actually one of the first ideas to pop in my head at all. The idea of a statement belt, paired with the moto jacket really jumped out at me. And I like the way it came out. The second look, I stumbled upon the other day actually. I knew I wanted to pair the dress with a hat, it was the shoes that I was hung up on. I knew a safe choice was to go with sandals of some sort. But what fun is that?! I found my H&M loafers and -just for fun- tried them on with the dress.
Whaddaya know?! I loved the way they looked! It just all came together perfectly!
Which do you prefer!?
I have several other ideas for the dress but I'm going to save them for another post... ;)
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend! See you Monday!
