My SIL let me "borrow" this pretty summery yellow dress (I warned her that once it was in my hands she was not getting it back... just a joke). She bought it, but then decided she didn't like the way it fit her. She likes the dress still, but isn't sure what to do with it to make it look right on her. So, even though I think she just needs it altered (which I am not confident in doing for her), I thought it would be fun to style it 2 different ways so that maybe she can get a different perspective on the dress.

Yellow and Navy.
You seriously can't go wrong with this look, but I think the shoes are what really pull it together. I'll even let her "borrow" them. I have had these shoes for YEARS, seriously, I would say at least 9 years! And I'm pretty sure I have only worn them about 3 times. That's what happens when you keep shoes in their original box, shoved in the back of your closet.

Yellow, Brown and a print.
I have to admit I'm not too sure about this combo, it looked cuter in my head. But the point here is that the dress can double as a really pretty skirt, with the right shirt or sweater layered over it.

It was fun wearing this dress for 30 minutes, I love how flowy it is. But the rest of the day I was in jeans and a sweatshirt, especially because it started raining before I even finished taking these pictures. Any other suggestions for a pretty yellow dress?

Today I'm linking up with the Pleated Poppy


  1. WOW! Both of these are so cute! I love wearing a dress as a skirt! It is the best way for me to transition a dress from work to going out at night!

  5. Transitioning a dress to a skirt just multiplies your wardrobe and the different things you can do. Love the combinations. Sometimes we need a little inspiration.


  6. I love a little yellow dress!!! I especially love the first way you styled it. You could always put it with a cream sweater and gold sandals =) How nice of you to give your SIL some fun ideas!!!! But somehow we always seem to end up back in our comfy jeans, hee hee!

  7. Love the navy and yellow look! The bodice is so pretty, you could even get away with wearing a maxi skirt over the bottom. Double the warmth, double the styles! :)


  8. I really love the yellow. Cute styling! And the dress looks better on you, so you're welcome to keep it!
