Whistles Dress Remixed with Stans & A Backpack ( & #Passion4Fashion Link-up)

 Oh how I love this dress. I’m glad to report it was definitely not a mistake putting it in my Capsule Wardrobe as i have worn it a ton of times, and yet i still love it. That is a sure sign of a good dress, right?
When I bought this dress in the colder months I had the vision of pairing it with some Stan Smiths and a backpack for a cool Spring look. And it did not disappoint. We had some warm weather last week (gone now of course) and knew that this was what i would wear. This is why the capsule wardrobe has made me so happy. Its easy, all the planning has already been done, so you get up each day and dress, no stress!
And with my Spring capsule drawing to a close in 10 days (can you believe how quickly that’s gone?!) I am already contemplating a Summer capsule.
A little shopping, a little careful planning and thought and hopefully another season of easy dressing.
That’s the plan anyway.

Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers
Whistles Lola Dress
New Look Backpack

GREAT Backpack Options:
Kate Spade, especially the Charley
Rebecca Minkoff , especially the Julian (my FAVE)

Rayban Classic Aviators

Happy Friday ladies.. Here’s to a wonderful weekend!

    I can see why you love this dress! Love the casual way you've styled it!

    Great dress! I can see why you like it!

    Your capsule wardrobe has reminded me to take a good look at what's in my closet and really contemplate every purchase. I have only bought a few pieces in the last few months, and I chose each one carefully and have been getting a lot of wear out of each. So maybe I'll arrive at a modified capsule wardrobe at one point…

    Looking forward to your summer capsule!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    This dress is so adorable! And I love a dress that looks cute with sneakers. That is my go-to outfit this spring…a dress with sneakers! Perfect weekend outfit for a mom of two little boys. I can do what they need and feel super cute, too!

    In love with this outfit, maybe because it's Whistles (which I have a real soft spot for). Wicked pairing with the kicks and mirrored sunnies too. Yvadney x
