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!
