Today I'm starting another something new on the blog. A few weeks ago I noticed that Danielle of Goodwillista (which has recently become a favorite read of mine!) and I had the same dress. I love when that happens, it makes me feel like I'm doing something RIGHT!
She came up with the idea for us to both style it throughout the seasons. I am always looking for pieces and inspiration for how to make a piece as versatile as possible, plus who wouldn't want to collaborate with this cutie? Naturally we are kicking off with Summer, which is nearly to the end, though Summery weather in these parts will persist until October.
Danielle definitely gave me some new ideas for wearing this dress! I've never thought to wear a belt because the waist is elastic-y, but I love the way it looks! It adds further definition and helps pull together the accessories. Her sandals make the dress look maximum Summer-y, and the "pendant" style of necklace works great with the cut of the dress.
Head over to Goodwillista for the rest of Danielle's outfit details (and to look through her fabulous, affordable, closet & style), and to hear her say really nice things about me!

Simple, knit dresses like this are my absolute jam. Because this one already has some detailing, it needs minimal accessories, making it SO easy to style. I opted for my brown clogs that I've been living in this Summer, and a beaded statement necklace to add some color. Also I've been using this purse for a few weeks now, so it worked out by default.
Styling for Summer seems pretty simple and no-brainer, so I'm already brainstorming ways to make this dress a little more interesting, a little more layered, and a little more colorful for Fall. Stay tuned for part two of Four Seasons, One Dress: Fall.
In the meantime, tell my girl Danielle hey, won't you?
Wishing you all a very fun and safe loooong weekend. Make the last memories of Summer count!!
