What I Wore // 1 Dress, 3 Ways


Sometimes I look at my clothes and feel as though I have nothing to wear. We've all been there; staring at the same old things that we wear over and over again. 

When I was invited to style a dress by George at Asda, three different ways, I thought it would be a great opportunity to come up with some fresh ideas for my spring wardrobe.

I chose a gorgeous pastel pink dress* with a big, bold floral print all over. Miranda Priestley may say, "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.", but I say screw you, Miranda! Springtime is synonymous with blooming flowers and a floral print is timeless.




I had so much fun coming up with my three different looks. It's amazing how, with a few accessories and different combinations, the same item of clothing can take on a completely different character.


First up, is a laid-back outfit for some shopping and brunch. Ballet flats are great for running around town, a nice spacious carry-all is perfect for all one's bits and bobs (and any spontaneous purchases!), whilst a pop of leopard print and faux leather jacket give it a bit of edge. I threw a jumper over the dress, transforming it into a skirt, to keep it casual.

My second look, is going for a walk in the woods. Chunky boots and a lightweight parka mean you're ready for any dodgy weather, whilst a knitted beanie will keep any late afternoon chill away.

For my final look, I wanted to create an evening look for a date or family dinner. This time I mixed things up and transformed the dress into a top, by pairing it with one of my favourite skirts. Heeled ankle boots and a leopard print clutch keep it a little more formal and sophisticated.

I'm so pleased with the three looks I came up with and the versatility one garment can have. I'll definitely be applying the same principle to more items in my wardrobe - just think how many new outfits you could create!

George at Asda have so many beautiful and affordable dresses in store and online right now - I'm a regular shopper there and am always so impressed with the range and prices of their clothes. Check out all their current dresses, right here.

Which is your favourite look?

Many thanks to George at Asda and Talented Talkers, for their help creating this post. I was kindly gifted products to create my looks, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I regularly part with my own money at George!

  2. These looks are amazing. I've never even considered turning a dress in to a top. Genius! I wish there was a George Asda close enough that I could pop in and have a rummage. Xx

  4. I love the second look! Remixing things is one of my favourite things to do :) I'm hoping to build up enough different outfits with the same item to make a little remix blog post of my own!

    1. Thanks, Ciel! I can't decide on a favourite! I love them all, but I think the first one is probably the most day to day 'me' xx

  6. That second one with the beanie is so cute but I love all of these. It's always fun to see how one piece could be styled for any occasion. I've just discovered your blog via Twitter and love it already! - Tasha
