Green Week - Dress Remix

When I planned this Green theme, I didn't even think Third Thursday Threads falling in the same week.  No worries!  Bri picked a theme that I can work with - remixing! It also works out perfectly to join in on the Many Days, Many Ways party! 

I seriously love this dress, but the first day I wore it, I quickly became self-conscious about the slit in the front - it's way too low to be worn without a little extra coverage, and a camisole just wouldn't look right at all.  Good thing scarves are so popular!

Then I bought this blouse and decided to try the old "blouse under a dress" trick that Kate is so good at.  I still think it would look better with a scoop-neckline, but I think it still works pretty well.  And I LOVE how the green of the dress brings out the green dots on the blouse.

Anyway, remix!  Here's my collage of 5 ways to wear a pretty green dress.  *Standing in front of white garage door is optional*
Dress: Banana Republic Outlet
Blouse & Shoes: Old Navy

Linky info is after the jump!  


  1. That is seriously a cute dress! I love it with the blouse underneath and it looks great with a scarf, too! The love for symmetry in me also appreciates you put the non garage door pic in the middle of the collage! ;)

  2. This is such a cute dress! You have definitely remixed the heck out of it. The blouse is great layered under it. Plus, the one with the scarf is really pretty too!

  3. Such a cute dress, and you've worn it so many great ways! I really like how it looks today over the blouse. I tried the dress over a blouse thing a few weeks ago but it felt really constricting and awkward so I changed before I went to work. I'm going to try it again with a different dress and see if it works out better.

    1. This always happens to me! I saw an idea on Pinterest I may try, you layer a tank between the shirt and the other article of clothing and it help with the bumps and pulling. I'm afraid it will add even more stuffiness though!

    2. Yep, I have tried that a few times. As long as the tank is pretty thin and tight, it doesn't add too much bulk.

  4. I love this dress, and really like the way it looks layered over a blouse! Also, those shoes are super cute! All together, a terrific outfit!

  5. Green is definitely your color :) my favorite is with the striped blazer :)

  6. this outfit is awesome Andi! I love every part of it- the blouse you paired the dress with, those great shoes, and of course the dress itself!

    I don't have much green in my closet and I don't think it's happening this week :( bummed I couldn't participate but I'm glad you had a great turn-out at least!

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  7. This looks SOOOOOO good together. Navy + green is a favorite of mine :)

  8. Oh goodness, I sincerely love this, Andi! I think the navy and green look fantastic together, and the dots on your shirt are just darling! :)
