LBD 2 Ways for Summer & Thursday Moda Linkup

I recently ordered this scalloped dress from Romwe because I thought it would be a great summer staple. Since I had been wanting something with scallops for a while and the price was right I went ahead and got it. When it arrived I knew this was going to be the perfect dress for our upcoming summer vacation. It could be dressed up or down easily and the jersey fabric meant comfort and no wrinkles! Today I am sharing two ways to style this great summer staple!

For the first look I kept it casual with a chambray around my waist, sandals, and straw fedora. To me, scallops tend to add a dressier vibe so I want to tone that down with more casual elements. I am loving this casual, beachy look!

Heels and statement jewelry can dress up any look. By adding my favorite statement necklace and some black heels, I am ready for date night! I love how the shape of the gold fringe on the necklace echoes the scallops on the dress's sleeves and hem and the pointed heels elongate legs. I ended up ordering a large in this dress so while it isn't too big, it's loose enough to not feel constricted or self conscious.

  11. Echoing all the other comments- those scallops are so cute! I've seen so many great scallop looks on blogs but have yet to find anything perfect while shopping. Hopefully soon! Thanks for hosting :)

  12. This scalloping is quite interesting. I just saw a piece in H & M yesterday that had that and I was quite drawn to it (no, I didn't buy it---but I thought about it).
    I think it's a nice detail as it gives so much interest to the piece without being too flashy.
    You've done a great job showing it styled two different ways---a woman after my own heart!

  13. This is such an adorable dress on you and I love the dressed down look! And, you'll only need to pack one dress for vacation and it'll have two uses! Scalloped edges are my fave!

  15. What a great dress!! I love that the shape is simple but the scallops make it so fun. Both ways you styled it are gorgeous but I'm partial to the casual look--the hat and those sandals are just so cute!

  23. I love the scallop detail on this LBD! You styled it so well. I always forget to tie a denim jacket around my waist and when I see other people do it wish I tried it more!
