the versatile dress

dress: kohl’s (similar) / shirt: j. crew (similar) / belt: target / shoes: j. crew (similar)
i’ve found this dress to be surprisingly versatile. it’s casual enough that i can throw it on to run errands and nice enough that i can add some fancy make-up and a pair of heels and wear it to a wedding (which i’ve done!).

i’m kind of a sucker for lace. i love the femininity of it and the fact that it sort of lends itself to the boho chic style these days. i love a piece of clothing that can translate really well for different events, styles, feelings, etc. this dress is one of those for me.

every girl deserves to have a versatile dress, don’t you think?

also, how many times can a girl use the word versatile before it’s officially annoying?
not to self: buy a thesaurus.

    And the chambray shirt is just as versatile! Great combo. Of course the belt is the best part (i think).

  6. I love versatile dresses. In fact, since maturing into the "adult world" with a real job and such, I've found that I can't reason buying anything if it can't double for work and night life. I just don't have that kind of budget. 🙂 So, I LOVE versatile dresses. If it's in my closet, I want to be able to wear it to work, to play, to party, and to celebrate nuptials. You basically sold me once you said you wore it to a wedding.

    happy Wednesday,
