My style has definitely evolved over the years. I think I’ve come a long way since the days when I thought wearing uniform shorts were cool (sidenote: they were not). While I’m now drawn to more boho, flowy styles and neutral color palettes, I used to be the girl who’d trade anything to wear a feminine, classy dress all day, every day. If I could have lunch with any person, alive or dead, my answer was always Audrey Hepburn. I loved the ’20s, ’30s, ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. I liked old music and getting dressed up for no reason.
So, it’s not surprising I reached for this dress. It has the illusion of a two piece set, but the draped back and flared bottom keep things a bit interesting. If you’re like me and have a boatload of weddings to attend this summer, this little number is the perfect option. The print is fun, but still neutral, so you can pair it with a wide range of colored accessories. A big chunky necklace? Sure, why not! Go big or go home.

P.S. – I teamed up with Vernacular, an adorable (and affordable!) boutique in Columbus, to help promote this year’s Dine. Drink. Dress. event, benefiting Dress For Success Columbus. Check out the other looks I put together here and here. The event is TONIGHT from 6 – 9 p.m. at The Bluestone. Get your tickets here!
