As you may know, our Full Bloom Collection came out last week which included mainly midi dresses that were billowy & full of life! When coming up with the Full Bloom Collection I looked at all of our dresses that came in & was inspired to dress them down. It can be really easy to throw on a pair of heels & call it a day, but dresses can be more than just a going out piece. I imagined our model to be surrounded by flowers, walking around tending to her plants on a warm day with her trusty dog at her side. She saunters through her garden taking in all pretty colors while looking cute & effortless. A nice gardening day doesn’t mean you have to thrown on some overalls or shorts!
Here are some things you can pair with the SJ Dresses to dress them down!
One major key to making a dress super casual is to pair her with sneakers, flats, or sandals! In this case, I paired the Maxine Sneakers with one of our dresses because she’s around tools in her garden so they’re for protection! A really cool sneaker can make a dress more urban & ultimately more comfortable.
I always say that a hat can complete any look, especially if it’s one of our SJ straw hats! Since our model was in her garden outside, I wanted her to have protection on her head but something that will give her shade. She needed something that wasn’t too heavy as well, so I used the Willa Woven Seagrass Gambler, Gia Peeper Straw Rancher, & the Sunshine Straw Hat. These hats are great for the beach too- to keep the sun away & still looking super cute at the same time!
