I’ve had this gray dress for years and I never run out of ways to wear it. It reminds me of a skater dress that I could wear with black converse high-tops, and though those days are mostly behind us, there’s something to be said about a youthful piece that can repurposed.
Greg and I went to the 17th Street Festival in the Dupont Circle neighborhood last Saturday and I wanted to wear something that was easy to walk in, both in terms of comfort and sweat resistantance. This dress is the perfect weekend dress because it’s a basic, you can do pretty much anything with it, but it shows a bit of cleavage with the lower cut, and has a twirl in the skirt. I styled it with gold accessories, tons of gold bracelets and my y-chain Midori Linea bracelet I’m obsessed with. Btw, if you like this chain, you can get 20% off any piece of jewelry using my code “masha” on the Midori Linea site, www.midorilinea.com. They also have a ton of fun hanchain bracelets, as well as chockers, which would be such cool addition to any fall wardrobe.
To finish it off, I went with my gold studded Sam Edelman sandals. There’s a bit of a luxe feel to this outfit with all the gold, but because all the pieces are easy and basic, it remains down to earth. I love something I can just throw on like this dress, and then add a few accessories, and then enjoy time without worrying about how my outfit is going to function throughout the day.
The festival itself was a lovely time. There were all sorts of vendors selling artisan products from olive oils, to soaps, to jewelry and the patios of restaurants that line 17th street were filled to the brim with people. We enjoyed brunch at an Argentinean restaurant called Malbec. They have racks and racks of wine, and I will have to come back for dinner soon.
