Pass the popcorn

Hi, everyone!  It's Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette, and today I'm styling this lovely swapped dress from Jana!  I know most people probably associate red and white with more wintery days (like Valentine's Day or even Christmas), but I think it's also a great combination for summer!  It makes me think of carnivals, amusement parks and drive-in movies.  One thing that all those summer events have in common is the presence of a much-beloved salty & buttery treat: popcorn!  I knew I wanted to incorporate my popcorn novelty purse into this look, since I'm nothing if not thematic.
 I'm normally drawn to dresses that have an exaggerated fit and flare shape (full skirts are my favorite), and I was afraid this silhouette wouldn't be as flattering.  Much to my surprise and delight, I absolutely loved the fit and shape of this dress!  It's also a lighter fabric than I had anticipated, which means that it makes the dress that much more versatile.  I could easily see wearing tights with it in the wintertime (it'd be perfect for a holiday party!), but it was completely comfortable for our summer days, as well.  I also really loved the sweet little collar on this dress!
Outfit Details:
Dress: swap from Jana
Popcorn purse: Storenvy
Spectator heels: BAIT Footwear
Necklace, belt & hair bow: old

I really adore how Jana remixed her dress!  The first way is so fun and whimsical with her pretty mint heels and hot air balloon necklace, and the second is practical and cozy.  How would you style Jana's wonderful white dress?

Have a great Thursday!

  1. Love how you styled this! I agree, the silhouette is gorgeous on you! So funny, I think of red & white as very summer-y colours, due to them being Canadian colours! I'm definitely going to have to style it similarly! Loving it with the Bait shoes!! And I actually bought this dress as a holiday dress, paired with gold and green! :)

    1. Ah, I didn't even think of the Canadian reference! :) Ooh, and the holiday gold/green/off-white combo would be so pretty!

  2. I love it! The accessories work so perfectly with this outfit. I usually think of red and black but never red and white. The ideas are flowing... :)

  3. Sammi, you're never less than perfect <3

  4. I want that popcorn bag just so I can take it to the movies and look super cool ;) I love it!
