Alright, alright – I admit it. This is just too much fun. Thank the heavens you were digging this series the first time around, because I think it’s here to stick around for awhile!
Welcome to One Piece, Ten Ways, where I’m digging out some of my personal favorites and styling each and every thing ten different ways for (hopefully) easy inspiration. This way, the next time you’re mulling over a dress purchase, or just feel hopeless when it comes to printed booties, you’ve got something to look back on and use as a resource! Ya feel?
So kick back with a cup of coffee and an eye on your wardrobe, because today I’ve got this super sweet chiffon petal dress from the cutest blossoming boutique, Filly Flair.
(Leave a comment with what you bought if you’ve already used your exclusive discount code!)
Now let’s talk the ten, from top to bottom, left to right.
First. I’ll call it, Prepped Edge. I threw on a basic black cardigan to balance out these rocker chic booties from Rebekah Craig. (Did you see this? AND use code “cominguproses” to get 15% off your own if you love!) I love this as a fun way to dress down an otherwise fancier piece…it feels low key enough while still being datenight-worthy!
Second. All dolled up and ready to go. Simplistic, with the statement solely on the dress and shoes. I love these sparkly gold heels with it, because they’re essentially infused with my personality.
Third. Grown up Teen Vogue, where you throw a cool tee overtop and it’s “edgy.” Really though, I love the sleeve detailing on this fun striped top, and the dress is really perfect for layering with how lightweight and versatile it is! Adding a shirt overtop turns your dress into a skirt, and strappy wedge sandals with a zipper…#yaaaaaas
Fourth. I’m reaaaaaally feeling bold solids being mixed and matched together this spring. I think this blazer brings a neat textured element to the table, with the lace print contrasting sweetly to the super smooth and flowy chiffon.
Fifth. Coral Crushing. These shoes are the epitome of spring and summer stepping. They’re uber bright and poppy, and they play up all of the fun elements of the swing in the dress. This is the type of outfit I’d envision for running around in a field of flowers before grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend. It’s just versatile and animated in and of itself.
Sixth. Still on Chambray. Because you’ve been high on chambray for the past two seasons, so why not keep it going, right? Throwing on a denim shirt makes for an easy cover-up when it gets cooler at night still, besides being the perfect piece to go insta-casual. I added this fun statement seedbead bracelet, because both the light blue and darker teal colors are in it. Getting all matchy matchy and color coordinated and schtuff.
Seventh. Heavy set sweatering. This is by far one of my favorite sweater in my closet. It’s big and heavy and snuggly, but still perfect for summer nights that are just a little bit on the cool side!
Eighth. The distressed boyfriend (jean). The best thing about this dress? Did I mention how versatile it is. Normally, I would’ve picked it out of my closet and thought to myself, “Welp, that’ll be for a wedding or fancy schmancy event.” BUT NO. It tucks flawlessly into my looser boyfriends, just like my striped tee laid flawlessly over it in numero tres. This means you have practically a dress, skirt, AND top in one piece. I’m all about that.
Ninth. Breakfast at Tiffany’s with a sock bun and major bling. I love this iridescent necklace from Sparkle & Whim, and I wore dainty silver strapped heels to complete the look. But that necklace though amiright.
Tenth. A lot to say. I wore these boots here and y’all flipped out…they’re so fierce and make me feel slightly like a real life Catwoman. I stacked up some black bangles to balance out the black tights.
P.S. Use shopping code ROSES to get $5 your whole regular-price order online. Hollah for five dollahs.
Now, you asked and I’m answering…some closer, bigger shots. And then bloopers.
How would you style a chiffon swing dress?
And I’ll leave you with a quote, because sometimes quotes are just too good not to share.
“When you feel like quitting, remind yourself why you started.”
Not exactly pertinent to fashion, but I hope that for at least one of you, it was exactly what you needed to hear right now.
