I was more than happy to teame up with one of my favorite brands, MISSGUIDED, to style this adorable Mint Mesh Panel Strappy Midi Dress. I decided to style this dress in both daytime and night time ensembles. In today's post I will showcase the daytime outfit. I wanted to share how one dress can be transformed both easily yet dramatically! It's always good to have a versatile piece in your closet that gives you options to wear in multiple occasions!
First of all, you have no idea how much I am in love with this midi dress!! Due to my height, I am normally not a big fan of wearing a midi dress. I choose a dress that comes to at least 4 to 5 inches above my knees. However, thanks to its mesh panel details this dress can be a bit longer and still make me look fab! It creates an amazing illusion of both elongating my leg line and drawing attention up away from my legs WITHOUT putting a belt on or tucking up the dress! How stunning! I really love the mint color as well! It's not a vivid color, yet still a vitamin color and of-the-moment shade with impact that you should try this summer!
For my datime look, I wanted to go for something playful and fun that works for casual shopping, having a quick lunch, or grabbing some coffee at a cafe! To start, I decided to pair it with a wide brimmed hat and a light french braid, which is my quick casual go-to style! I added an all-time stylish accessory: a collar necklace that gives the look a bit of boldness and and also a single dangly earring (This style of accessorizing is having its moment in 2014! )
Although this dress makes me look tall as-is, I still wanted a bit extra height to balance the whole look out. Yes, these clear heeled platform sandals do the job. I can even walk in them the entire day!
I like that the wide brimmed hat has a boho vibe, and to keep the theme going I accessorized with a fringed bag and mirrored round sunnies! Fringed pieces are back this spring and summer as a notable trend and have been seen everywhere! So glad I have kept this bag for a few years now! :) In fashion, what goes around comes around!
Finally, one quick note! I will be moving out in the next several days! I am super excited to live in a new area, but I want to apologize in advance for possibly me being MIA for a while!
