One Dress, Two Ways {Part 1}

Good morning and happy Friday y’all! Sharing with you a fun little two-part blog post today, as I’m styling a chic and simple black and white printed dress two ways. First up, a casual look.
With a black and white printed dress, it’s easy to change the look dependent on the type of accessories paired with it. For my casual interpretation, I chose to toss on my trusty denim jacket, wear some fun, yet comfy sandals and pull my hair back.
Ideally, I would wear this casual take on the black and white printed dress for running errands or a casual lunch meeting. The jean jacket can easily be slipped off when it’s just resting on my shoulders. I’ve especially realized now, with this erratic and non-fall Houston weather, a jacket or wrap comes in handy when inside restaurants or stores.
Accessories are at a minimum so the windowpane print can speak for itself. However, what accessories I did pair with the look – the sunnies and sandals – go along with my black color scheme.
Did you know that Armani Exchange recently launched a capsule collection within Macy’s stores and online? If you’re a regular reader of Adored by Alex (thank you!), then you might remember my previous partnership (see here) with Armani Exchange to celebrate their relaunch after Mr. Armani repurchased and redirected the brand. So pieces like this black and white printed dress are available both in-store and online at Macy’s!
For my Houston readers, listen up! I’m hosting a fun styling event tomorrow, Saturday November 5th, at the Macy’s Houston Galleria. Join me from 2-4pm for styling tips, light bites and to checkout the latest from the fall/winter 2016 collection! P.S., there will also be a gift with any $150 purchase! You can find more information on this Facebook event page.
It is November y’all which means it’s time to, figuratively speaking, start thinking about Christmas and holiday gifting. Why not start early with the help of Armani Exchange and Macy’s? I’m personally loving this collared fit and flare dress for holiday parties or this cool quilted vest as a gift for the guy in your life.
