Dressed up/Dressed down

I find that when I wear a dress my inclination is always to dress it up rather than to dress it down.

I fought that instinct the last time I wore this simple navy dress and put on my cargo vest and some simple accessories and boots.

I really like how this outfit turned out! It was great for hanging out with my sister and nephew and doing some shopping.

I am glad to see that this dress works in a casual way as well as a dressy one. I'm looking forward to dressing it down a little more often!

  2. I love the green vest and how versatile it is! You will get a lot of use out of it in the spring

    1. It's surprising how much I've worn it already - I see it getting a lot more wear as the weather warms up.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. That's a cute cargo vest and I love how you styled it!


    1. Thanks so much Janise! When I got this it actually had kind of bizarre floral sleeves - they just didn't work for me, so I refashioned it into this vest - I love it much more now!
