A week or so ago, the lovely Amy, a ModStylist at ModCloth.com, invited me to participate in the Uniquely You polyvore challenge. The challenge asks bloggers to create outfits around a central item, and the Mint Cute Dress was selected by Modcloth. To me, this dress is romantic and light, so I decided to create an outfit that would be worn on the last good summertime weekend that us lucky people in North Carolina even get to experience in October.
Because I’m plus size, I wanted to make sure any other items I paired with the dress could be found in the plus size section, so I settled on this lace detail top that I imagine would be worn open over the dress. Modcloth’s selection always reads romantic and whimsical to me, so I decided to embrace this mood and go full out sweet with a floral headband, love letter clutch, and cute heels. Even though the color palate is simple here, the mix of textures and accents call for even more simple jewelry, so I finished the look with a dainty ring.
