Change Up | Little White Dress and Chambray Shirt

Wonderful Wednesday my pretties!



I wanted to get a bit creative today - I'm sure some of you remembered my styling challenge with this dress. I've gotten suggestions to wear it with a chambray top to make it more casual. I was initially hesitant to do so because the back is kind of a show-stopper. I found a way to compromise: I made sure the bow in the back was still visible by tying a chambray shirt in the front. Although you can't see the va-va-voom factor in the back anymore, at least the bow makes the look whimsical and perfect for a warm day.





If you have any other ideas for this dress let me know - I'd love to hear some of your styling methods!

Top: Forever 21 shirt (similar here)
Bottoms: Francesca's dress worn as a skirt (also cute by ASOS)
Accessories: Nine West clutch
Shoes: Michael Kors Caroline pumps

  5. Ooh, styling it with the shirt and tying it is a great way to also show the bow in the back!! Hmm, I'd love to see you try styling the dress with a leather jacket for a touch of edginess!

    Have a great day!

  9. Looking through the pictures you can't even tell it is a dress. The bow in the back is way too cute to hide! Perfect way to style this look! A chambray shirt is the perfect combo to any outfit!!

    If you get a sec, I would love to get your thoughts on my latest

  10. This is such a smart way of how to wear that dress! At the first glimpse I could never tell it is a dress! :)
    I really like how you mixed these two items together- I think that chambray shirts go perfectly well together with white! This is definitely a great summer look! :)
