Happy Thursday Loves!
Last week I was approached by ModCloth to participate in their weekly Wanelo Style Board Challenge and was absolutely thrilled! Each week they pick a new piece of clothing and ask a variety of bloggers to style it - this week they featured the Garden Home Tour Dress in pink!
When I initially saw the dress I immediately thought of the Kentucky Derby and figured this dress would be perfect for a day at the races with an over-sized clutch and large floppy hat. As I started to scroll through the hundreds of options ModCloth has on their site, I knew the possibilities were endless and decided to go a very different route than Kentucky Derby.
Quite The Looker Sunglasses // Garden Home Tour Dress // Verdant It Be Lovely Earrings // Teacup and Running Watch // Pencil You In Bracelet // Get It, Got It, Go-See Heels // Two-Tone To Tango Bag
The Garden Tour dress alone is a showstopper so I decided to let that be the star of the outfit and pair it with neutral accessories with a pop of color here and there. I'm a firm believer in "less is more" when pairing accessories with a busy print like this so I kept things basic. In my mind, this is the perfect outfit to transition from running your morning errands in to meeting your girlfriends for a late lunch with a cocktail or two!
When choosing jewelry I decided to add a pop of color with the earrings and the Verdant It Be Lovely pair was the perfect match! Not only do they give attention to your face, but they also bring out the deep blues and greens in the dress - when I saw the Get It, Got It, Go-See Heels were a similar color it was a no brainer to pair those with it as well!
I'm a huge fun of arm candy, but as I previously stated, you don't want to over accessorize when wearing a busy print. I went with the simple Teacup and Running rose gold watch and added the chic Pencil You In bracelet for a fun stack that looks chic and effortless. When it comes to sunglasses, ModCloth has a killer selection y'all! It was so hard to choose just one, but these over-sized frames were exactly what I was looking for to pair with such a feminine look.
Lastly, the handbag! I immediately spotted the Two-Tone To Tango handbag in orange and knew it was the perfect accent color for not only the dress, but also to pair with the earrings and shoes. I didn't realize it was reversible until I clicked on the link and saw it - talk about a win win! Not only can you pair it with the orange tote to bring out the orange and yellows in the dress, but flip it inside out and you have the perfect neutral if you want to keep the look more dialed down.
I had so much fun making this collage and working with ModCloth. This is only one of the amazing dresses they have on their site and I highly encourage you to check the rest of them out here! If y'all haven't been to their site before you're truly in for a treat, but your wallet may soon hate you (hey at least I forewarned!)
