℅ Lulu*s dress (similar in white, similar with straps, similar in a maxi style); Target hat, sweater (similar), and boots (similar.)
Let’s be real here for a second.
I’m not a super fancy person. I live a life that involves a lot of errands, and have two kids who do school, and soccer, and playgroup (and all the other things kids like to be involved in!) I also don’t have a reliable babysitter for date nights, and I’m in yoga pants at home, A LOT. I don’t feel that comfortable in a traditionally dressed up look anymore, either. I like to feel a bit ‘off’ nowadays, not always the expected look, but a little different I guess?
Working with Lulu*s this month, I wanted to highlight a trend of wearing brights for Fall, but doing it MY way. I loved the hot pink of this minidress, (it’s SUCH an unexpected Fall color!), and I instantly knew I could style it two ways. Since I’m traditionally always cold, a cardigan over a strapless dress in key. As is a knit hat, in a contrasting color for a bit of fun. Getting dressed should be fun, right? With a pair of buckled ankle boots I can wear this dress out for dinner with my family, or to Target to pick up a birthday present, as I did the other day. Ha!
For a night out, I would switch the boots out for heels, and grab a gold sequin clutch. I would probably still wear the hat and cardigan, too, because it’s a bit quirky, and I like that! Getting dressed doesn’t have to be all proper now, especially for me with no dress code for my daily life. I stay at home with my kids and run our house, so I can wake up each day and decide who I want to be. Today I wanted to be a mama who wears a hot pink mini dress to school drop off, and I love that;)
Tell me, how would you style this dress?
P.S. See how my fellow mama of two, Megan from Chasing Davies, styled her Fall BRIGHT look here!
