1 Dress, 7 Ways

Hello friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! We had a great time celebrating our Son’s birthday (party post coming soon!), cooking out with friends and watching fireworks. I can not even believe it’s July…what is happening to time this Summer?!?

We recently attended my darling cousin’s wedding. As I got dressed for the event, I found myself with a little extra time to spare and a hair-brained idea (imagine that?)! I thought it would be fun to see how many outfits I could assemble using a single dress. The concept certainly isn’t new, but I’m thrilled to know just how often I’ll be able to wear my new dress.

I started with a JCrew peacock blue dress from this post. I have to say, most some of these pictures are ridiculous. My camera battery died, so I had to use my phone. Or rather, Mr. Sugarplum and my kids had to photograph me with my phone. And the fun wore off for them after the first shot, so in most cases what you see is the only shot taken. They were, after all, getting ready too!

I’ll build these outfits starting with the most casual.

Okay, at this point, I realized I was late for the wedding. Remember, the event I was supposed to be getting ready for? So I had to dash out the door and finish the ‘Evening Looks’ the next morning hungover. With no make-up and bed head. Oh, and salad dressing stains on the front of the dress! Talk about a dedicated blogger!

I’d probably ditch the headband if I wore this version, a little much with the low side ponytail and necklace.

Given more time, I’d like to accessorize the outfits a bit more, and definitely add handbags. I think I’ll be getting my money’s worth out of the dress, don’t you think? Especially since I had even more combinations in mind, I just couldn’t think of additional occasions to label them.
And which did I actually wear to the wedding?

Festive, of course! I can never resist pairing unexpected colors like teal and orange, and I was dying to wear those giant earrings. Do you have a favorite combination? Are you inspired to play in your closet? You’d be surprised how versatile your wardrobe is!
