Hi babes and happy Tuesday! Can you believe that it’s already time for school to start again? I swear it was just Memoral Day like last week! It seems that with every passing year, school starts earlier and earlier. We didn’t have A/C back in the day at my grade school, so once it crept up past 85 degrees, we got out early. And that happened quite a bit, because it’s still pretty warm & toasty in late August and through September in Omaha! So that means we need to re-think our back to school wardrobe. Dresses are one of the easiest things to dress up or down, which is why I think every back-to-school babe should have a few in her lineup!
I love this red floral wrap dress from Amelia’s Boutique for many, many reasons! For one, this is the perfect shade of red. It’s bold and vibrant, giving it Summer and Fall feels. The floral print has more neutral tones to it, which balances out the bright red just right! Ruffles are still super trendy for Fall, and these flirty feminine ruffles add just the right amount of pizzazz to an otherwise classic dress. And can we have a moment of silence in honor of how amazing the wrap dress is! It is God’s gift to women. Well, DVF is; because she’s the woman behind the best.dress.ever. The wrap dress fits well & works on every body type, because it highlights your figure and the adjustable tie belt gives you room to breathe. I know weight gain is something many women face, especially when in college, so these kinds of dresses give you lots of flexibility if and when your size fluctuates!
And what’s even more fabulous about this little red dress, is that you can style it in so many ways! For this particular post, I wanted to bring out the gray hues in the floral print, so I paired it with these gray studded block heels, which are super comfy btw! Gray is a great neutral option and is a bit more “Fall-like” versus a blush or nude heel. And one of my all-time favorite transitional pieces is my denim jacket! I love that I can wear it on, draped over my shoulders or tied around my waist. This would be an ideal look for a date night, a networking event, or a meeting for an organization or sorority you’re a member of.
You could also swap out the heels for white sneakers! You may be thinking, Sara, a dress with tennis shoes? C’mon girl. But I’m not crazy! It’s a huge trend right now and for good reason – it’s cute and comfy! To add a little edge to this look, leave the jean jacket at home and bring along your favorite moto jacket! You could pair black, gray, navy, brown, white, or cream with this dress! And if you’re like me and prefer to have a little height when wearing a dress, then opt for open-to booties! This still gives you the comfort but also takes it up a notch. Another jacket that would look great is a camo utility jacket! I love mixing prints and florals honestly go with so much. In fact, I have a navy and white gingham bomber jacket that would look awesome with this dress. See, we’re not short on outft ideas!
