Lookbook: Spring Chic + Flirty

3/19/2014

When I first saw this American Eagle Kate dress, I knew I would love wearing it simply because of the polka dots. Patterned pieces like this amp up your wardrobe and turn a regular item into a stunner. Then I noticed the lower back cut out and thought this dress had to be styled in a fun and flirty fashion. So I would call this spring chic + flirty with the added embellishments of a sparkly necklace, headband, booties and dramatic coat. The see-through back of the coat allows you to still get a peek at the cut out on the dress! Check out my feature alongside my blogger friend Jenmarie of SHE on the American Eagle blog for the #AEOStyle challenge for this great piece.

This look was worn on a beautiful Saturday where the first half of the day was spent truly relaxing while the second half was spent at an event that was the exact opposite of relaxation: a roller derby. I hadn't been to a roller derby in some time so it was a ton of fun seeing kick-ass women doing kick-ass things!
