Dress Up, Dress Down: Polka-dot Dress

I few weeks ago I had the chance to guest post for Lindsay Living. I wrote about packing for a trip. In the post, I showed two different ways to wear one dress.

In this first version, I’m wearing it as a dress. No big surprise. I chose this one because it’s a jersey knit and won’t wrinkle in a suitcase. And because you never know what the weather will be like when travelling, cardigans are a great way to layer and be prepared. They’re nice for covering up in air-conditioned restaurants too.

Dress: Thrifted
Cardigan: Smart Set
Necklace: Gifted
Watch: Florida street market
Shoes: Flexx

Here, I’ve layered a top over the dress, essentially turning it into a skirt. It really changes up the look. One less thing to pack!

I’m a fan of bringing costume jewelry on trips too. Accessories are an easy way to change an outfit quickly and they take very little space in a suitcase. I don’t take pricy pieces. Luggage gets lost, things get taken. It’s one less thing to worry about if you keep valuables at home.
