One of my favorite boards on Pinterest is Stella & Dot’s Style Board. Our merchandising team puts together outfit inspirations using our jewelry and accessories, integrating them with the latest trends. For the blog, I like to find similar pieces for women who shop for clothes in size 12 and up. I think it’s more realistic for my readers, and it’s certainly my size range.
This week’s outfit inspiration is a classic look with a twist. Combining a shirt dress and fedora with shooties gives this simple outfit a modern edge. I love the necklace options – a locket and alphabet charm for a subdued look and the Eclipse Pendant for a bold statement.
It’s not easy to find dresses, tops, skirts, and pants that resemble the ones in the style board – shoes are a little easier to track down – but I have three great options for the darling light blue dress in the inspiration picture.
You can’t go wrong with a shirtdress. It’s tailored and feminine – love the tie belt – and you can wear it to the office if you work in a casual environment or to brunch on the weekends. It’s also a great dress to take on vacation because you can easily change the look with shoes and accessories.
Shooties are on trend again this spring. I admit, I didn’t love this style at first. They’ve grown on me, though, and I bought a pair of black ones in the fall. I am considering adding a tan pair to my wardrobe this summer.
I think these hats are really cute. Perfect for window shopping in a seaside town or for lounging at the pool.
What do you think of this week’s outfit? Would you wear the locket or the pendant with this dress? For more outfit inspiration, visit my Stella & Dot Style Board on Pinterest.
