Good morning, and welcome back to 21 Days of Summer Fashion! Today I’m sharing a versatile dress that I discovered at Nordstrom, and yay, it’s on sale!
Okay, don’t hate me, but the teal is only available in a couple of sizes. However, this ruched knit dress comes in three other nice colors, including black for anyone who is looking to update their go-to LBD this year. I also really like the red one.
Isn’t the ruching on this skirt a great detail???
For size reference, I’m 5’5″ and just under 140# and I’m wearing a medium. I run between a small or medium in dresses, so I’d say this one is fairly true to size, but size up if in doubt. It’s already a body-conscious design so you don’t want it to be too snug.
I like nude shoes with a solid color dress, and these block heel ankle strap sandals are a great choice for summer. Pumps with a dress can read very conservative, but these suede sandals are modern as well as classic.
These are the oatmeal suede, and yes, it’s totally fine to wear suede in the summertime. Suede is for all year round these days.
I absolutely love these shoes. I find them incredibly comfortable even though they have a 3-1/2″ heel. The ankle strap keeps them on your feet when you walk, and the block heel offers some stability. Plus the suede is super soft and comfy on your feet.
I think a leopard clutch adds a nice touch to a solid outfit. It’s always a good idea to add pattern and texture to an outfit, and this bag does both.
I played around with a few necklaces, and I ended up wearing this layered necklace with the longest strand removed. I took it off because there is a lot going on in the skirt and I didn’t want it to compete. I actually wanted a shorter necklace but one that still makes a statement, and I didn’t have quite the right thing, so I guess this works okay.
This is such a versatile dress for so many spring and summer occasions, and it’s a great price.
