A Detailed Basic

Hello Friends! It's Katie from Butterfly Loves Snapdragons. I am so excited to be posting today because it's my birthday! I'm turning the big 24 :) What a nice time to receive pretty dresses in the mail to style up just for YOU! Really being part of this group feels like every day is my birthday, haha.

I fell in love with this frock when I first saw the ever lovely Elana wear it on her blog. It had the most enchanting details and was one of my very favorite colors.
I styled it with simple pieces, but even pairing simple items together can become engaging. Adding a few colors and textures creates depth and interest, which is something I strive for when getting dressed in the morning.

I love that this dress has so many layers. It moves and flows so wonderfully and the beading is simply FUN! It's nice to have items in your wardrobe that could work for special occasions, but also for everyday. I ran a few errands in this ensemble and felt fun and casual. I could also see this dress with a great pair of heels and a cute jacket though for a night out! Oh, the possibilities :)

Here's how Elana styled her dress! She and I look so different in the dress it's hard to tell that it's the same garment. I love how she let the color of the dress shine with her pairing of black pieces. Striking and beautiful!

 See the full post here!

This dress is wanted by many more of the girls, so you'll probably be seeing a lot of it in the coming weeks.  Do you have a garment that is full of fun details, but can also be a basic? Please, do share!

Have a lovely Monday dear readers :)
God Bless!
