dress week: day 1

gap sateen fit & flare dress   ·   old navy chambray {thrifted}
crown vintage tisha pumps   ·   mossimo belt

i am so happy to be co-hosting this dress theme week with andi of just another smith!  andi is known for her great theme weeks that have helped me to plan my wardrobe on more than one occasion and i was so glad she wanted to collaborate with me in bringing you this theme week of dresses.

i certainly love a good dress, but i don't know that i am always that good at picking out dresses for myself.  in planning for this theme week i realized i have a lot of sleeveless dresses that i never wear on their own - i always layer a shirt underneath or a blazer/cardigan over.  i knew that's exactly how i wanted to wear this dress this week though with alice as my inspiration!  i loved the look of the chambray she wore underneath this same dress that she styled back in april.  the stripes on the dress are dark navy, as are my shoes, and i accented with a mint colored belt.  i'm not sure why i didn't add a statement necklace?!  don't you hate when you realize something was missing from your outfit after you take pictures?

get the look:  exact dress / similar chambray / similar belt / exact heels

i'm looking forward to seeing how you find different ways to style dresses this week.  you can add your link to this one link-up tool andi and i are using all week either here at my blog or at hers so join in whenever you can.  see you again tomorrow!
