OOTD - Little Blue Dress


It's no secret that come summer, I'm practically living exclusively in little sundresses.  Not only are they a great way to beat the heat, but a cute dress is such an easy, instant outfit.  The problem of having an entire closet full of dresses (which I do) is that you loose the versatility of creating different outfits from the same pieces of clothing  - unless you rely on accessories.  This little blue dress from Club Monaco is absolutely adorable on its own, but paired with a statement head scarf it takes on new life.  Even your choice of shoes and bag can help to shape and change an outfit; imagine the difference if you were to swap each out with a small cross body and a pair of nude flats. Come nightfall, a long cardigan layered over top is all you need.  Simple!  My love for little summer dresses runs deep, but it doesn't have to come at a sacrifice to closet versatility.

Dress - Club Monaco, Bag - Madewell, Shoes - c/o Old Navy, Scarf - H&M (old - I usually find the best scarves at thrift stores)




Can we talk for a second about the majesty that are these Salvatore Ferragamo cat eye sunglasses?  When I first saw them, I gasped - they're basically my perfect sunnies! I love the two-toned brown and tortoise on the frame, and the gold detailing pairs nicely with tanned skin (or overly-bronzed skin in my case.)



What do you guys think?  Are you as into the little sundresses as I am, or do you prefer separates?  How do you get the most out of the items in your closet?  Let me know!

  2. I feel you girl. My closet is 75% dresses as well! A dress is just so easy to thrown on, and outfit done. But you do have to rely on accessories to spice things up. I love how you incorporate head scarves into your looks!
