One Dress Two Ways : Casual Option

Did you like the pink scallop embroidered linen shift dress from Cynthia Rowley featured in yesterday’s article? Did you notice that the dress is on sale for almost half off? Well, if you still need a little convincing that this dress is a great piece to add to your warm weather wardrobe, let me throw out another option for styling it…

This is how I wore the dress out and about for a day full of running errands last weekend, before switching out the sneakers for heels for dinner with a friend. I also swapped out the Rosie Assoulin tote bag (sadly, not available online) for the slimmer and chicer Chloe Faye bag.

In addition, the cute little Peter Pan collar is removable, adding another styling option. Also, did I mention that the dress is on sale? You can’t beat that!

Cynthia Rowley linen shift dress (on sale here, also here, similar collared option here, another pink option here)  | Dolce & Gabbana sneakers (here and here; similar Mary Katrantzou x Adidas option that I love here) |  Rosie Assoulin tote bag (very inexpensive canvas polka dot tote bags here and here) | Karen Walker sunglasses (here) | Dior lipstick (here)

Don’t forget you can browse a wide selection of Cynthia Rowley dresses here.

Vote for Your Favorite

Now, having seen both options, which do you prefer? Which option would you wear where? My answer is both! I just love wearing one dress two ways. Getting more bang for your buck by wearing an item multiple ways is always a positive in my book!

Have a great day.

  5. If I were to vote Carrie, yesterday’s would get mine. Even though today’s is casual chic, yesterday’s just stole my heart!! Those pumps are about as fabulous as they can get and with the dress, the outfit is just perfect!!
