Sept 4th, Day Dress Done Right

Cute day dress paired with flat sandals keeps it casual.

Too casual, and too short! Looks like a swim suit cover-up.

I’m taking my daughter to the American Girl store today, so I wanted to wear a dress for this special occasion. On the right I’m wearing a simple cotton day dress, but it is too short and it looks like a swim cover-up, especially since I paired it with flip flops. On the left I am wearing a better version of a day dress. The belted waist is more slimming and the longer hemline is more appropriate. In case I get cold, I added a cute cardigan and for visual interest I added a cool necklace. I also replaced the flip flops with my favorite sandals from Target. Now, off to spend $$$ on doll clothes, seriously?!

A cardigan with some details adds interest.

The cardigan will come in handy in the air conditioned store.

The straps add an unusual twist (pun intended!).

Dress: Club Monaco, Cardigan: H&M, Necklace: Anthropologie, Sandals: Target, Swim Cover-up: Old Navy
