My Calypso St. Barth Conclusion

Posted on Updated on

In a recent post about my Pink Bag Moment at Calypso St. Barth, I mentioned I was allowed to bring home one item. I said I’d reveal my selection in a future post with styling options. Well, the future is here!

I decided on this beautiful Fran Indigo Ikat Embroidered Silk Dress! And if you like this dress, there’s good news for you at the end of the post!

While I absolutely ADORED their cashmere selections, I chose the dress because of the year-round versatility I thought it would offer. Plus, as much as I’m obsessed with cashmere, it always kind of scares me because it’s so luxe and it’s only a matter of time before I (or one of my kids) does something to ruin it. Tears would be shed, I’m sure. So, the beautiful dress it is!!

I’ve styled the dress 3 ways, but the styling options go far beyond this post!

1. For the Office: The gold threading may keep some people from wearing this to work, but I’m totally fine with it. I tried to tone it down in all other aspects of the outfit–an ivory button down underneath, a neutral blazer on top and grounded with neutral booties.

2. Happy Hour: After work, shed the blazer, change the shoes and the look is less serious, more fun! I actually wore it like this to work. But I work overnights in the media, so the dress code is not as strict as say, maybe a courtroom or bank setting.

3. Date Night: Let the dress shine on its own! It’s really a beautiful piece with so many striking details, it does not require a lot of bells and whistles. I let my hair down, wore a dressier shoe, a gold clutch to match the accents in the dress and beautiful tear drop Kendra Scott earrings (so fabulous they’re getting their own post!).

Other styling options:

-with leggings and booties/knee boots (I would’ve shown this style, but it’s still just too darn hot in the south right now). pair with a loose cardigan for added warmth.

-as a tunic over skinny jeans and ankle boots. great for a weekend look!

If you love this dress as much as I do, it’s actually on sale! Plus, you can get an additional 25% off right now for Columbus Day Weekend! Score!!

    […] They may not contain jewels, gems or a lot of bling, but they will hardly go unnoticed. The double teardrop shape allows for beautiful movement. Each teardrop is also adorned with gold beads (also available in silver. The design is simple enough to pair with more casual looks, yet there are enough intricacies to support an outfit for a night out on the town. The quality feels exceptional. They are coated in 14kt gold. They aren’t flimsy and do not feel like they will fall apart after a few wears. They are now one of the most beautiful earrings I own and I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of them! I love how they look with this Calypso St. Barth dress I styled in a recent post. […]
