{outfit} How to Wear a Coverup Away from the Beach

I'm pretty sure this dress is mean to be a beach coverup due to it's very loose fit. That is how I normally wear it but last week I decided to style it for a family get together. To fix the "too loose" problem I added a gold belt to define my waist. After that all I had to do was add some cute Summer sandals and off I went! It's so soft, it felt like I was in pajamas all night, which is all we really want during warm Summer nights, right?

I don't wear these sandals much, partly because they're slightly large and because I don't want to ruin them. They are the first pair of Ancient Greek Sandals I bought, way back in 2012 before they made a ton of colors and styles. Since then I've bought 5 more pairs and am planning on buying my 7th pair when Christian and I are in Greece next month for our honeymoon! Trying to resist buying a pair in Net-a-Porter's sale because they are up to 60% off! AHH!

Unfortunately I cut off the tags of the dress and can't remember what the brand is! Such a shame because it's so soft and comfortable!

  1. This is a perfect way to make a cover up work for daily wear - and wearing a cover up all day is such a great thing in the summer heat.

  3. Such a cute dress, what a shame you cut the tag off! It looks so good belted and I love swing dresses like this for the warmer months! :)

    Hope that your week has been a good one and you have a nice weekend ahead of you :)
