Some people live in jeans and pants. Others lean towards skirts and dresses. There’s no question I love a good pair of jeans, but dresses are my first choice every time. Which is interesting, because they’re the last thing I’d ever wear growing up! (Much to Mama Sugarplum’s dismay.)
Dresses are the home equivalent of a ‘bed-in-a-bag’…..pretty much your entire outfit in one. Which doesn’t mean they aren’t as versatile as separates, especially when you go with classic shapes like a sheath or shirtdress. With a few accessory changes, and a shoe swap, this dress is good for Day to Night.
I love the laid-back vibe of this dress, but the drawstring waist gives it a flattering fit, and the flap pockets and roll-tab sleeves up the chic-factor. The dark color and drapey material make it perfect for a night out, with a statement necklace and sassy shoes. I’ve been a fan of Lucky Brand shoes for years (my favorite knee boots and beloved plum booties are both Lucky Brand!), so I wasn’t surprised by how much I loved these tassel-tie sandals. They are incredibly comfortable, and add just enough personality without being too trendy.
Fit Tip: The shoes run true to size for me, and come in a few color options.
What did surprise me though, was the clothing collection on the Lucky Brand site! I thought they were mostly shoes, jeans, and boho-style tops, so I was amazed to find so many classic pieces like my shirtdress, this floral shift dress and this vibrant safari blouse.
Fit Tip: The dress runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS, and the drawstring allows me to get a custom fit at the waist.
For an easy day or weekend look, I swapped the heels for neutral wedges and added my trusty jean jacket! The whole thing screams, ‘Spring!’, doesn’t it!? When Summer comes, I’ll lose the jacket, and add flat sandals or even sneakers, for an even more casual style.
