Two Girls And A...Striped Dress
I met Caitlin from Chasing Cait Style Coach at my first event ever as a blogger. Dressing Up was about 2 months old and I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing! Cait has been one of the people that has answered a million questions for me as I have developed the blog, and now we chat all the time - mostly about clothes you understand! We both have a passion for empowering women to feel confident and kick butt in their everyday lives. So we thought it was high time we worked together!
Cait wears a Size 12, is 5ft 10 and has a DD bust. I am about a size 16, 5ft 6, with a size C bust so we often style our clothes differently and thought it would be fun for you to see the same clothes, styled on different bodies.
The Home-Lee midi dress, ($119.95 from Cait and Co) is such a cute piece for Autumn. I don't wear a lot of grey but paired with this pop of pink it's fresh as a daisy. Be prepared to see a lot of pink in varying shades this season, including in my hair! By the way, this dress also comes in CACTUS PRINT! Isn't that fun?!
I have never been one to dress down and I like my outfits to feel polished - but they STILL have to be comfortable! I have two little girls so my clothing has to allow me to sit on the floor and run after my toddler. The fabric of this dress is so stretchy, it's a mid weight jersey (no cling) with an elasticated waist, so it's easy to adjust for any body type. Something about the length of this dress on me makes it feel a bit more dressy than a normal t-shirt dress, so I'm a fan.
This dress is available in sizes 8-16 but I'm wearing a size 14 comfortably (I am usually a 16 so size down!) I chose to style mine with a bright statement necklace and silver block heels - both from H&M and in store recently. And of course my sunnies because I am SUCH a squinter!
The gorgeous Cait is wearing her #everydaystyle uniform of denim jacket and trainers with her dress and its suits her down to the ground. Click over to Cait's blog post for styling details.
And here we are together, matchy matchy and loving it! Did I mention this dress has pockets?!
How would you style this dress? Stay tuned for more from Cait and I next month. Have suggestions for what you'd like to see on us? Let us know!
Dressing Up - because YOU are the special occasion!
