Two Looks – One Olive Dress

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

It’s amazing how an outfit can be changed dramatically simply by adding a hat, a bold statement necklace or long dangling earrings. I actually stumbled upon these two looks by accident the day of this photo shoot. These photos were shot early last month when Atlanta and most of world seemed to be experiencing above average temperatures. To indulge in the temporary warm weather, I imagined pairing a long trench vest with over the knee boots to feature in my next blog post – a look that probably doesn’t make sense 90% of the year.

On the way to photo shoot I didn’t want to wrinkle the trench vest, so I thew on this denim jacket to keep warm until the shoot was underway. As soon as I stepped out of the car and got a glimpse of my reflection I knew I had to take pictures in both looks. It was unintentional, but I instantly feel in love with how the denim jacket looked paired with the olive dress and knee boots.

The first look with the denim jacket, even with the knee boot I think this look is pretty casual. The denim and hoodie on the jacket really tones down the dressiness of the boot. I think this combination would also look great with a flat knee boot or maybe even sneakers – I’m picturing white converse. A cross-body bag I think would also look great.

The second look with the trench vest and floppy hat is definitely a great look when the event calls for not quite casual but not quite dressy. I could see this combination paired with pumps or a bootie. To dress up the look even more, I would add a dressier necklace or clutch purse. I would definitely wear this when I’m hanging out with the girls!

I hope you guys enjoyed these two looks I stumbled upon. I’m looking forward to sharing more style inspiration with my readers! Lets build and maximize our wardrobes! More details below…

    Both of the looks are super cute, and you’re showcasing the versatility of the dress! I couldn’t decide between two different jackets for one of my latest blog shoots, and did the same thing as you, showing off both looks! 🙂
