One Dress, Two Ways: Part One

I wore this dress to my graduation, and it was so comfortable yet just the right amount of dressy. Plus, it has pockets. Win!

Wearing: Madewell dress | American Eagle jacket (old, similar here and love this oversized version) | Danielle Nicole satchel | Sam Edelman sandals | BaubleBar necklace | Ray-Ban wayfarers

I love to wear dresses, especially ones that can be dressed up or down. This Madewell dress is definitely one of those pieces. Today I’m showing you a casual way to style it. I’d probably wear this look for shopping or Sunday brunch. Tomorrow, I’m showing you a look that would be great for a party or date night.

Many of you may know how much I love Sam Edelman shoes. They are so comfortable and so stylish. These sandals are a must for summer! They’re comfortable and thick, so they won’t wear and tear easily. If you’re looking for a pair of sandals, these are it! And, they come in multiple colors.

Come back tomorrow to see the second way I styled this dress. By the way, this dress is currently on sale. Now’s the time to snatch it up!

    Such a cute look. Once summer hits I always carry my jean jacket with me when I go out at night, it's the perfect accessory to a summer dress.

      In my opinion, a dress is always instantly better when there are pockets. Thanks for reading, Sydney!
