Every once in a while I get bored of just throwing on a dress and leaving the house, especially since my instinct is to be a bit lazy. I like to mix up my outfits, styling them in unexpected ways that infuses my closet with a little more excitement. I own dozens of dresses, and even though they’re my favorite things to wear, by nature they’re pretty simple. An easy way to style a dress in a more interesting way is to layer–even in summer!
Here, I layered an embellished-sleeve white tee over a pinafore-style dress. The dress, with spaghetti straps and an unusual neckline, would have been ever-so-slightly inappropriate for work, so I decided to mix it up by throwing it on over a tee. I love the way the white of the shirt mirrors the white of the dress’s design.
To accentuate the overall girliness of this outfit (go big or go home), I accessorized with this daisy purse I recently acquired: I’m obsessed with how delicate and feminine it is, and unusual purses are kind of my favorite thing in the world. 🙂
