Hi all, Marlen from Messages on a Napkin here! When I got this pretty floral dress from Katie over at Butterfly Loves Snapdragons, I didn't know where to begin.  It was so pretty as a dress, and ever so cute as a skirt. It worked amazing as a shirt, and every blazer matched it. THE POSSIBILITIES, PEOPLE.

After calming down a tad, I decided to try my first go-around as a shirt. I loved the poofed shoulder-padded sleeves and wanted to show them off a bit.  Since the dress had a stretchy waistband I chose my high waisted jeans to hide it, and tossed over a thick cardi as my layer. Add some keds to keep it casual (I like wearing super fancy jewelry with overly casual bottoms to make a fun contrast) and you have a cute week day look!

  3. Very nice! I like how you create a contrast between the vintage dress and the denim shorts :)

  4. So pretty as both a dress and a top! I love it with those shorts & the minty shoes are amazing!

  5. Wow this dress does have lots of potential! I love all 3 ways you girls have styled it! It does have really pretty sleeves and I love the shorts Marlen! Wearing a fancy necklace with very casual shoes and short is a great idea, it looks amazing!

  6. The floral print on your vintage dress is lovely both worn as a dress and as a blouse! I love the subtle puff at the shoulders and slight blouson look you created. Your pretty necklace and jumper top off the look nicely making for a beautiful outfit.
