Old Dress, New Trick

Olive Jacket over Patterned Dress

When this beautiful patterned dress from Macy’s came into my life last December, I was really curious to see how often I could really wear it.  And how many ways I could style it.  It was originally purchased for a Christmas party where I dressed it up with heels and a bold long necklace.  I felt so elegant and it was the first outfit I wore where my Vintage Bohemian style shown through.

Wearing dresses and skirts have become a vital part of my wardrobe so I decided to tackle styling this printed dress one more time.  By layering it with an olive belted jacket, it turned it a little more casual.  The accessories and shoes pick up on the orange color this time.  Since there are so many colors in this dress, I do not think I am out of options for coming up with other ways to style it.

The flats kept me comfortable all day long.  I like the way it keeps the look a little more relaxed too.  As a whole, I think this is another successful way to style this dress.  Old dress, new trick!  Today I am linking up with Alison of Get Your Pretty On if you want to see how others are remixing their wardrobes.Olive Jacket over Patterned Dress
