Cutouts & Confetti







Outfit Details:
  • Black cutout dress (Sparkle & Fade via Urban Outfitters // swap from Ashley
  • Heather gray boyfriend cardigan (Love Rocks via TJMaxx
  • Skinny patent yellow bow belt (Forever 21
  • Red tennis shoes (c/o Keds)  
  • Orange and white 2D "Cheese" bag (c/o Jump from Paper)
I'm so happy to finally post my first swap outfit!

Ashley and I met up in person (so awesome that we live close to each other) and swapped dresses. I had been wanting to try a dress with cutouts and just never found one I really liked, so I'm glad I got to borrow this one for a bit. I actually really love it--especially the cute and colorful pattern. I ended up wearing it another time to work and am sad to send it off because I like that the cutouts are modern and kind of unexpected.

I wanted to keep the outfit casual, but still fun and lighthearted because the confetti pattern is just so whimsical and quirky. I wore it with a yellow bow belt, my cartoony Jump from Cheese bag (it looks two dimensional but is a real bag! crazy), and my red Keds

Check out how the gorgeous Ashley styled it:

  10. That bag is such a fun accessory! I love the dress to pieces and how you both took a different route to styling it. As it's such a summery piece, you really made it work quite brilliantly for the cooler months :)
