My "take a chance" dress, three ways

It's ironic that after mentally writing them off, I'm spending a SECOND post on Beklina.

After choosing the work shirt to spend my "fun" money on, I decided to get a relaxed summer dress with the rest. The Stewart Brown V Neck that's this summer's best hit was out of my "fun" money budget, so I kept looking around. In Beklina's sale section, I ran into this beautiful faux wrap dress, but they were out of my size. But it was so pretty, I googled it, and found this awful looking dress at Backcountry. Was it the same dress as the one at Beklina? And in real life which photo did it look most like? I've been burned before by "super hot online model" syndrome (when something can only look good on the super hot model shilling it.)

The verdict: It is the same dress, it looks like the Beklina photo, and it's lovely. So here are three way to wear it!

Of The Earth Misolovely Dress $65 from $84, in medium and large only. Also available from Backcountry in more sizes and three colors.

Beach-y: Super Lucky Cat Yellow Dot Pleat Top Tunic $79, Mad Imports Ile Sainte Marie $68 (also available from Anthropolgie, gasp), Simple Shoes Toetami $28.

Date-y: Kim White Equestrian Belt $110, AgainNYC Orange and Green Velvet Clutch $155, Terra Plana Helena $178.

Hike-y: Look for Fiddleheads Redwood Tee $24, Patagonia Lightweight Travel Tote $70, Simple Shoes Sugar Sneaker $55.
