Sunday styling sessions: blue dress

inspiration comment

Blue dress styled 3 ways |

A few weeks ago, I went on a closet cleaning mission: to sell or donate clothes that were no longer being worn. There were a number of items that were no longer on-trend, things that I’d had since college (it wasn’t that long ago, right?), or things I had bought on a whim without properly accessing how often I’d really be wearing it. As I’ve matured, I’ve gravitated more towards items that can be functional in more than one setting. My goal has been to not purchase an item simply because it was on sale or because I really liked it even though it may not be versatile. I am hoping this new weekly series will help me (and you!) evaluate a focal item and find at least three ways to style it. Let’s start with this week’s pick!

• Blue shift dress: Eliza J

• Powder blue tote: Dorothy Perkins
• Nude heels: Dorothy Perkins

• Black ankle strap heel: Nasty Gal
• Black clutch: Tory Burch

• Ankle leopard & nude strap flat: Charles David
• Leopard mini crossbody purse: DVF
