The minute I saw The Coach Tour Dress in Lavender from ModCloth, I knew I had to have it. It's basically the perfect dress for spring: comfortable, not too light of a fabric, and flattering with its gorgeous color and precise cut.
However, a sometimes down side...it's sleeveless. But, never fear...because this is literally the most versatile dress I currently own. I saw this as a styling challenge & started putting looks together with the Coach Tour Dress that everybody can love.
The first look I put together is definitely a more creative one. I layered a light green sweater from Old Navy (with my initial-A!) over the dress and took the collar and used it in lieu of a necklace. I also added some cute bird-print* wedges from Report and topped the outfit off with a flower in my hair! This look would be perfect for someone who wants to wear this dress as a skirt!
This second look is perfect for those bright, spring days when there's still a touch of chill in the air. I layered a polka dot chambray button-up over the dress (Old Navy), threw on some comfy kitten heels (Franco Sarto-thrifted), and a fedora (Old Navy). This is definitely my favorite look- I felt so effortlessly chic.
My third look is for those who prefer a more tailored or "office appropriate" look. But, that certainly doesn't mean your look can't be fun! I put on a flower-printed black blazer from Style & Co. (Macy's), black patent pumps from JCPenney, and polished it off with some pearls. Extra kudos if yours are real ;)
But of course, the dress will look fantastic on you without all the whistles & bells.
I hope you all had a fun, relaxing holiday weekend. I'm looking forward to more sunshine and less school work as the semester winds down. :)
