This dress reminds me of toothpaste: you can squeeze out every last bit and when you think you’ve used it all, there’s still a little more. It has so much potential, I don’t think I’ll ever retire it! In the spirit of getting the most out of something, I took this floral print and styled looks for both day and night. Flowery dresses aren’t my usual protocol, but the fit of this one was what ultimately won me over while shopping a couple of months ago. AND it has pockets… Meredith and I agree that dresses with pockets are the best.
To me, the white/teal color combination says spring time, easy breezy and polished. When paired with the dress (which has no teal at all), the effect is quite stunning because of the opposites rule.
When brunch is over and it’s time for your concert…
Try accessorizing your super feminine frock with darker colors. Black statement boots, the black jacket and jet-black glass earrings all make a badass statement, and it works well because it’s in stark contrast to the overtly girly print.
Not only are these boots super comfy and affordable, but they add a stylish punky edge to almost any outfit. I’m officially DV by Dolce Vita convert.
