One dress. Three ways! I actually bought the dress early last summer at Nordstrom Rack during a lunch break at the ole Barnes & Noble. I can’t find it online anywhere, but similar styles can be found here, here and here.
Look 1. I swear I’ll be buried in this blazer. I’ve worn it a few times on the blog, so I’ve probably explained how I got it already. If you missed it the first time, this is the jacket my brother was consecrated in when he was six or seven. Sweet, right? Being the small-busted girl I am, no blazer has ever fit me better. (PS. Isn’t this a neat little belt trick? Thanks Pinterest!)
Look 2. It’s spring, y’all! Time to let the sunshine pour freckle juice all over your shoulders! This dress is completely shapeless without a little help. Since I glammed this look up a bit with the metallic sandals and bare shoulders, I chose a dark and unassuming belt to keep from drawing attention to too many places. The little ties on the straps of this dress used to drive me nuts, but seeing them in these photos is giving me a change of heart. They’re a little romantic, no?
Look 3. As ultra feminine as I tend to be most of the time, I have a habit of tom-boying up outfits before I leave the house. After seeing a handful of emo shows at SXSW with Dago, I’ve been grundging up my outfits left and right. I’ve probably asked him “do I look like a little punk girl yet?” about a hundred times in the last week. While this is less punk rock than some of my other ensembles, I’m still digging the sporty take on floral here. Sometimes my super-sweet flowery get-ups need a little edge–cue grey tshirt and booties.
Whether you like it or not, spring is here to stay. To celebrate, here’s a little Kate Nash that, like today, is equal parts spring showers and flowers.
