Casual Friday: One Dress, Two Ways

TGIF all!

A few weeks ago I asked IGIGI if I could review the Linea dress from their Fresh Sophisticate collection.  The Linea is a classic maxi in bright colors that I love. Instead of  taking pictures of myself wearing the dress, I wanted to show how versatile it can be. Inspired by Assa from My Curves & Curls and her expertly remixed outfits, I decided to show the dress worn two different ways.

I made the dress appropriate for my job by adding my pink blazer and a chunky gold necklace.  Although I work in courtroom, on Fridays during the Summer I can   get away with wearing open toe sandals.  I really liked how this turned out! Weather permitting, I plan on wearing this outfit next Friday.

For a casual look, I wore the dress as a maxi skirt. Since cropped tops are all the rage, I turned my denim shirt into a quasi cropped shirt.  I can totally see myself wearing this to a street fair or running weekend errands. I really liked how the dress was transformed into something so functional.
