Trapeze Dress, Three Ways : Day 2

Hello again lovelies! As promised, the trapeze dress is back in a whole new way today. I wanted to try to dress it down a bit for a daytime occasion. I love this look for brunch, or a summer cookout with friends. I think adding this belt tones down the romantic flow of this dress just enough to allow it to pass for a casual daytime look. When dressing something up or down, footwear is always important. When I really want to wear a tee and jeans, but I have to look a little nicer, heels are the way to go. I applied the opposite philosophy in this occasion. I wanted to take something elevated and downplay it, so I decided to go with flip flops. Nothing screams comfort and effortlessness more then a simple pair of sandals, and these Tory Burch ones match my belt to a T! I hope you get inspired to take some of your summer nighttime outfits into day with these simple changes!
