DEAREST DREAMER

One dress, two looks


<<LOOK ONE>>

<<LOOK TWO>>

I'm here with another collab with Mint Julep! (If you haven't seen my previous blog post with them click HERE). This time around, I had the opportunity to style one of their many dresses found on the website. The Day to Dream Dress is an incredibly versatile and form-flattering lace dress that has just the right amount of detailing to give it extra personality. I really enjoyed the lace-up details on the side and especially liked the timeless lace on the bottom. The dress stops at the perfect length for me (I'm 5'7 and I received a size medium) and the thin shoulder straps allow for layering with pretty bralettes or even a long-sleeve if it's still cold where you're at. 

I wanted to give two examples of how you can style this dress. Each gives off a totally different vibe so depending on your personal style, feel free to use these looks as inspiration!

LOOK ONE:
I wanted this outfit to reflect the season so I wore my denim jacket I purchased at a flea market while studying abroad and layered a dainty long gold necklace (c/o my roomie) for simple accessories. Because I wanted this look to be light, I wore a pair of sandals and wore my favorite reflective nude-colored sunnies to complete the look. 

LOOK TWO:
This outfit is something I'd wear to a girl's night out. I wore a black structured jacket and paired it with my trusty Dr. Marten's to keep the look tough. I then added a choker with a small Saturn charm for a punk-inspired twist. I definitely would've worn a darker, vampier lip with this too!

Both looks are very different from each other, but still use one simple, yet effortless dress to pull it all off. I feel like this dress can work in combination with a myriad of different styles, especially since it's white, and can also be layered depending on what the climate is like where you're from.

LACEY:


Is it a doily? Is it a table cloth?
The world may never know...






No, I do not smell like my grandma, nor am I wearing her ornamental mat...but I am wearing this incredible white lace top!
I recently received this hand-me-down and I couldn't think of a better time to wear it than during this spring season. It has the perfect amount of girly and can flatter most figures due to it's cinched waistline. I also love the detailed lace hemlines in addition to the bat-winged style of the sleeves.
Overall, this versatile top can go along with virtually any outfit--pair with jeans like I did, or layer a fitted jacket over for an evening look.
