In an effort of finding more ways to stretch my wardrobe, I’ve been working on finding six different and unique ways to wear this black and white abstract floral dress from Express. I’ve already done a simple and chic version and a more casual leggings and sandals version. For today’s version, I wanted to have a perfect mix of comfort and chic. This demanded flat, comfortable sandals and accessories that wouldn’t be constricting. I ended up tying a silk sash around my waist, throwing on a black cardigan (indoors only), and then kept it from being too dressy with the sandals. This look could easily be dressed up for a night out by adding heels and some sparkly jewelry.
Even though it’s not something I often do, I really like the simplicity of wearing all neutrals here. Normally I’m adamant about adding at least a pop of color somewhere on an outfit, but all I did here was add a tiny dash of color in the seafoam pendant.
I got a wonderful letter from a reader recently that described my style as “stylishly-comfortable” or “comfortably-stylish” and I think this outfit encapsulates that. All the jersey made this wonderfully comfortable, and there was nothing that I had to constantly adjust, unlike the other day. I think we look and feel my most beautiful when we’re comfortable in what we’re wearing. If we have to constantly adjust and fret about what we have on, we’re too busy worrying about that to enjoy the moment.
