02 Mar One Dress Two Ways
Happy Monday Ladies
Hard to believe it is March 2nd!! I expect to be wearing floral dresses and lighter colors any day now! But, for the time being, I have been inspired by many of the bloggers I have seen that have taken dresses and worn them in several ways.
MY FALL LOOK: Karina Bronze leaf dress, Rebecca Minkoff satchel, Cole Haan woven leather flats
If you recall, this was one of the looks I had shown you in the fall. This is one of my Karina dresses, the Megan in a bronze/brown fall leaves print. I love the colors and thought they would work well with my hair. This is how I styled the look for fall. The dress was worn with a real copper covered leaf as a necklace, and leaves and earrings. The necklace were purchased in the artsy fartsy town of Asheville. ( I say this with much love) I love nature and this was just a beautiful piece to remind me of so. Taking the browns in the dress, I chose to wear my comfortable, yet stylish Cole Haan woven flats, and one of my favorite light cognac colored textured bags by Rebecca Minkoff.
I have not yet styled one of my dresses two different ways in a post, so I thought this was a great opportunity. With the brown being a very conducive neutral, I added one of my favorite colors, pumpkin, in a cardigan, with chiffon detailing down the front. I also decided to add my rich dark brown leather Born boots to the ensemble. By now, the snow has turned to that wonderful, yummy slush color and texture that I am more than familiar with living in Pittsburgh for over 30 years.
Nevertheless, I wasn’t taking pictures sloshing through the puddles of leftover snow. If one wants to go from fall with a more casual look, one suggestion is to take a print or color that transitions well to a season, add a blazer or a complimentary sweater. Perhaps change out your jewelry or add a different scarf/accessory. Lastly, if you were wearing heels or flats, change to booties, OTK or knee high boots. This gives one ample opportunity to expand one’s wardrobe, and we ALL love that right?
I appreciate the bloggers who have given me the inspiration to take a dress I love and transform the look two different ways.
How do you make the most of your wardrobe? How do you style one dress perhaps for 2 different seasons ?
