A Day (Dress) In May

         It’s about time the sun has peaked out from behind the clouds.  Although, still on the chilly side, the bright sunny days have inspired me to wear some of my new, favorite daytime dresses.  Nothing is better than those days where you can just throw on a dress rather than worry about wearing jeans and finding a matching top.  Dresses like the one in today’s post are the best because they act as a blank slate, meaning you can wear pretty much whatever you want with the dress to capture your own personal style.  Keep on reading to see how I transform a basic dress into one stylish look with only a few pieces.

         So the formula for a simple, yet stylish outfit is a no brainer. First start with a basic piece.  In my case, I chose to wear my favorite new dress from Tobi.com.  This dress is described as the perfect “day dress,” and I totally agree.  This dress with a subtle olive colored tie-dye pattern and the ruffle overlay is perfect to wear to any day event.  Think graduation parties, summer barbeques, pool parties and much more.  The ways to style this dress are endless.  I can totally see myself wearing this dress with a jean jacket, kimono, layered necklaces, or statement earrings.  You can wear this dress in so many ways to numerous events and people won’t even know it’s the same dress, which is always the goal when finding pieces to add to your wardrobe.  But today, I ditched a jacket and excessive jewelry and instead tried out a new fad, the bandana trend.

         Another versatile piece to add to your wardrobe, a bandana can be worn in countless ways, either on the head, the neck, or the wrist.  If you want to experiment with something different than the usual scarf, bracelet, or headband, I highly recommend adding a bandana to your collection. Since the bandana is really trending for this season, you can find a multitude of bandanas in any store.  For me, my favorite bandana is one that features warm colors and tassels, so this bandana by Mudd is perfect for me. Since my dress is on the low cut side, I tied my bandana around my neck.  I love the warm colors paired against the olive shade of this dress.

         Since, I wanted to keep my jewelry minimal, I decided to just wear my favorite Hollis Hayes bracelet.  Of course, my bracelet features a beautiful elephant charm, which goes perfect with the boho vibe of my look.

         Lastly, for shoes I am not ready to break out sandals just yet (waiting to get a little tan first) so a pair of short booties works perfect with this look.  Although, the weather is getting warmer don’t put away your booties just yet.  Instead, continue to wear your favorite booties into the early summer months with dresses and skirts for one stylish outfit.  I love these taupe colored booties from Marshalls because they feature lots of cut outs to keep my feet cool and fashionable.

         Finally, I am starting to wear some of my new spring clothes.  Nothing is better than the feeling of styling a new wardrobe for a new season.  If you are looking for new dresses to add to your closet, I highly recommend heading to Tobi.com for the best collection of dresses for any style or occasion. Keep this conversation going and let me know in the comments below about your formula for the perfect spring/summer outfit.  Talk soon!
