Hey, everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! We finished up Game of Thrones last night. It was an interesting ending to say the least! Ryan and I have been watching that show since the beginning of our relationship, so we were kind of sad to see it end. But, it was time. Any other GOT lovers out there?
On the fashion front, I wanted to share one of my favorite current trends: The Button-up Dress! I love this style of dress. It certainly has a vintage inspired look to it, as do most things these days. But, I like the different ways that they can be styled, and the different cuts and styles of these button-up dresses!
The one I’m wearing here by C/MEO Collective that I found at Shopbop.com is my favorite dressier version of the button-up dress. I am in love with puff sleeves, and anything with a square neckline! It’s reminiscent of the peasant tops we are seeing so much of, but folded into the button up dress! I just love the femininity of the puffy sleeve. It’s also so dramatic and makes a real statement. You are a true fashion lover if you are rocking the big puffy sleeves! 🙂
The other thing that is so great about this dress is that the material is very breathable. It’s made of cotton, but it is still an awesome dressier choice for a summer night out! I love the pocket detail, and how the buttons are made of a tortoise shell-like material. You can rock it with your favorite tortoise shell jewelry that is so popular right now, too! I’m wearing a pair of brown tortoise shell earrings that I don’t think you can see too well behind all the hair, but they’re there, haha!
I picked this nude heels to play off the colors of the buttons. I like how the straps wrap around the ankle. It just gives another interesting texture and look to the whole ensemble. I also chose this transparent bag with the bamboo handle. I like how it picks up the other natural materials in the outfit like the buttons, jewelry, and color of the shoes.
There are so many other cute styles of button-up dresses! I love the midi dresses with little straps, or short sleeves. I also really like the mini dress versions of this style! The fabrics are so light and breezy. The sleeveless overall styles are so cute, too! You could easily pair it with a little tee shirt or tank underneath. They would look so cute with a pair of sneakers or your favorite sandals! I would definitely wear them with an espadrille or platform sandal. So cute! They are so great for any kind of occasion. You could easily throw it on to run errands and still feel pulled together! Especially when it gets so hot out! Dresses are my go-to!
I’ve linked this dress and some of my other favorites all for under $200. Check them out! I’d love to hear which are your favorites! Have a fabulous start to your week! <3
