Happy Fashion Friday!  #FashionFriday   Muh-haaaa!

How about a little fashion to end the work week?  Each Friday I’m going to bring you a different outfit or look from various fabulous locations.  I’m sort of excited about this one!

Today’s post is based on a concept I’ve used over the years to expand my closet.  I will share one article of clothing and show you three different ways to wear it.  My Mom taught me at an early age that accessories can totally change your look and I’d like to share some of her tips along the way.

A navy and white striped dress is the featured article of clothing for today’s #FashionFriday

I got mine at Charming Charlie’s, but I can’t find the exact same one online.  Here is a similar one at Charlotte Russe and this one at Belk is also similar.

It’s a favorite of mine for it’s ease of wear, comfort and ability to change-up.  You can also see it in this skater dress post from last year and on my mini vacation Key West trip post in two additional different ways.

The pictures were taken by my Sister-in-law Megan at the Lake Murray lake house my hubby’s family rented last month.


Concept one is to dress it up, but keep it summery.  A yellow bib necklace and neutral beige wedge shoes add enough pizzazz, but don’t overkill the dress.




Bib Necklace: Charming Charlie

Wedge Shoes: White House Black Market


Outfit two gives the dress a little more office feel with a cardigan and belt.  I love the idea of layering a cute belt over a cardigan to give you more versatility.  I keep the accessories in the gold family and put a long necklace to add interest with the cardigan’s open shape.  You could add more serious brown shoes, but I love sparkly sandals for just about any occasion.




Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft

Necklace: Ann Taylor Loft

Belt: Old Nacy

Shoes: Belk


Outfit three is one of my favorite ways to switch the look of a dress, especially for Fall.  If you have a summer dress you can usually add a jacket and boots and extend it’s season through early Fall.  This is a perfect example.  I went with big dangle earrings and no necklace since the jacket is already embellished.




 Jacket: White House Black Market

Boots: My real Cowboy boots from Nashville

Earrings: Arden B

Three different ways to give one dress a new look!

Your Turn!

How has your week been?

Do you have a go-to dress?

    Of course you look great Julie, but what strikes me as being different is that you have a beautiful stressfree look about you.
    I’m sure you are relieved to have completed that process of resigning from WLOS. Continued Best of Luck to You !

    You should appear as a guest on WLOS! You could also be on ‘Spotlite Carolina’s’ segment or perhaps have your own – like Francie Black – referring to your Blog. Jus sayin’ – S.T.

    Hi, Julie. Good ideas, and nice to mention the history of your mom’s advice – I know you must think of her fondly each time you use one of her suggestions.
    I have a black short sleeve dress that is so easy to make look different with accessories. I don’t have pictures, but I use a long garnet and gold scarf; or pearls and a white cardigan; or one of those “butterfly” overshirts that is multi-colored. For shoes, I have black, of course, white sandals, and my favorite red ones.
    Thanks for the Friday Fashion. I look forward to more as time goes on.
    Have a great weekend!

      Thank Libby. It does make me feel better to spread her wisdom 🙂 Your dress sounds perfect for changing it up.

    I love the jacket with the dress! I always try to do a blazer, which doesn’t really work, but this jacket looks great!

    • JulieWunder August 8, 2014 at 1:44 pm - Reply

      Thanks Rebekah. It is one of my favorites.

  15. Lisa B August 8, 2014 at 9:38 am - Reply

    Three awesome looks! Of course, the beautiful lady wearing the outfit steals the show!

    I love all of these looks! Accessorizing is something I seriously need to work on. It’s amazing how much it can transform an outfit.

      That video of Milkshakes is so cute! Silly cat!

      Thanks Stacie! Accessorizing is one thing I’m good at… haha!
