If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I LOVE wearing dresses! There is something so fun and feminine about getting all dolled up in a lovely dress. And then you add a bold floral to it? Your girl is loving it!! After dealing with all of this hurricane nonsense, it’s nice to get out of the house and put on something nice! Since Summer is slowly winding down, I decided to pair a bold, lush floral with utilitarian denim for a casual, late summer look. As you may already know, I love to style new looks with my old clothes- and this look appears as if I’m wearing a denim shirt with a floral skirt! Sneaky, I know. 😉
Fashion has always been something I’ve loved, from kid to adult! When I was a child, my grandmother used to dress me up in ornate dresses and over-the-top hats, paired, of course, with some shiny mary-janes. Despite my cheerful childhood, there was a phase where I hated fashion and anything feminine. I thought I was meant to be super dark and edgy- and of course, I only listened to emo rock and Linkin Park. If I were to tell my 14-year-old self to put on a dress there would’ve been hell to pay for it! But once I got to high school, my dark phase began to pass and my love of fashion slowly came back again.
This dress is another oldie but goodie that has served me well throughout the years. The print is bold, yet subdued by the jewel color palette and makes this dress easy to wear over and over and over again! I’ve literally worn this dress so many different ways and I haven’t stopped running out of ideas yet! If you remember in my earlier post about how to wear an old blouse, this dress was featured in one of the outfits! This dress can be worn alone, with an over sized shirt or cardi, a leather jacket for a little rocker chic edge, or in the case of this outfit, with a denim shirt tied at the waist! This dress is from the BCBGMAXAZRIA 2016 Pre-Fall Collection, but you can find some similar styles here.
