The dress I’m wearing on the photos above is one of my most recent compulsive buy. I do a lot of shopping online since I live in the middle of nowhere. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to keep this dress when I received it but the fact that it was almost out of stock influenced my choice. However, since this pretty dress arrived on my doorstep, I’ve had a hard time styling it as an everyday outfit. While it’s not the fanciest dress I’ve owned, it’s not the most casual either!

That’s why for today’s outfit, I thought I would try to dress down this little dress. For this, I didn’t pick any accessories such as jewellery. The less the better! In this outfit, my only accessories are the sandals and the bag. The reasons why I picked these in particular, is because they are casual yet still quite chic. I picked some sandals I bought last year from Zara. The red tone of these shoes actually compliments the print of the dress really well! I finished the look with my straw. I know we’ve seen this bag repeatedly on the blog but I can’t help it, not only it’s a cute one but it’s also super practical!

How would you dress down that kind of dress?

    Wow what a beautiful dress.! It’s definitely a dress that needs minimal styling as the print is busy ! Nicely styled with the vacation bag.
    Thanks for the share.

    So glad you kept the dress it is wonderful and would be perfect for traveling. Love the bag and shows the importance of staple items in your closet. I love dressing down fancy items with denim jean jackets. 🙂 Cheers

    Beautiful dress, glad you kept it.
    I dress down garments by keeping my shoes flat, big hoops and a big bag. Very similar to yours-
