Style Challenge: Wear a Dress

I was really excited to see a new feature and link-up on my favorite style blog, Putting Me Together. Audrey has come up with a series of weekly fashion challenges -- anything from trying a new hairstyle to copying an outfit from Pinterest. The challenge for week 1 is to WEAR A DRESS.

This may not sound very hard, but for one thing it's winter in Ohio. For another, I'm a tried-and-true jeans girl and I hardly own any dresses. But one of my goals is to add more skirts and dresses to my wardrobe -- they always make such put-together outfits.

I dug around in my closet and came up with this pretty cream lace dress that I wore to my brother's high school graduation back in 2012 and -- woo hoo! -- it still fit! I paired it with a dark pink sweater, a leopard-print belt, leggings, brown boots and blue-green earrings for a pop of color.

 I was pretty pleased with the look I put together and I even got a few compliments on my dress at work! It was a super comfy outfit and I'm going to make it a point to add this dress into my regular wardrobe rotation. I'm sure I can come up with a few more fun ways to wear it!

Check back next week for style challenge 2: wear a bright color!



  1. That lace dress is gorgeous, and the layering you did definitely makes it practical to wear even in the cold weather!

  2. This is a great look! Fleece-lined leggings are awesome in the winter to make your dresses work year-round. I love Audrey's blog (she works for the same org I do!).

  3. Way to rock a white dress! I'm so clumsy with coffee that I'm not that brave.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
