Hey Friends!! I always love doing these kinds of posts.  In case you didn’t know, I’m a sucker for anything with multiple uses.  I try to get year-round wear of pieces in my wardrobe.  When an item comes into my closet that has passed the test, I just want to share it with everyone!

THIS DRESS is one of those pieces!  I found the Band of Outsiders khaki dress for… oh around $50 (likely retailed for $600) at Clothes Circuit.  {In case you haven’t heard of them, I did a little post on them here.  Long story short, they are a fabulous consignment shop in Dallas!}  It honestly was a staple piece this Summer i.e. I would wear it multiple days in a row if I were going to different locations and didn’t think the same people would see me!  It’s the perfect color and goes with anything.  Duh, it’s khaki!  I love the structure and the “oversize” brings serious comfort because I can hide a full grown food baby under there!  There’s actually a belt that goes with it, but I prefer to wear it without.

THE STYLE Rx:  A khaki dress is one for the books closet!  With the right accessories, you’ll be earning more than merit badges. Keep it simple with a tote and sandals for the Summer.  {Stay tuned to see how I wear it for Fall!}

Anyhow, this is ONE of the main ways you would have seen me wearing this dress during Summer.  White accessories, like a leather tote and studded sandals, keep it light and airy for summer {and what we call Fall in Texas}!  Bright lips add color to an otherwise muted palette.

UPDATE: Part II of One Dress Two Ways!

BTW, I’m going to be on Good Morning Texas tomorrow as one of three models on a segment for “Investment Dressing”!  Cynthia will be talking about the pros of consignment shopping at Clothes Circuit.  Tune in at 9am CST to catch what I’m wearing!
