When I am able to get my hands on something that is versatile (and affordable) I am one happy camper. I feel like I am getting more 'bang for my buck' (add that to the list of phrases I can't stand haha!) when I can wear something multiple ways. Bonus points if its comfortable.
As much as I would love to get dressed up all the time (like in a dress and heels) it just doesn't fit my lifestyle anymore. It's hard for me to justify purchasing a really dressy dress when I know I will only wear it one time. That is wear versatility really is important to me. That's why I loooooved this Agnes & Dora Lee Dress. When I first tried it on, my immediate thought was casual, but then the wheels started turning, and I thought how easily I could dress it up! Not to mention it is SO comfortable.
It lays perfectly, has a great amount of stretch, and is something that could easily take you from a play date to date night just by swapping out the shoes and accessories. As much as I loved tossing on the heels with this dress, I will say my favorite way to wear it (and how I wore it out and about with my family) was with sandals! It just had the perfect, casual vibe!
Agnes & Dora has a lot of other great pieces that could easily be deemed a closet staple, especially with the fall season rapidly approaching. (ok maybe not rapidly, with this heat...but its on the horizon!). I personally love the ruffle tunic. If you're on the shorter side like me you could get away with wearing it as a dress with flats, or as a tunic with a cute pair of leggings
Check out how I styled the Lee dress-what's your favorite? More importantly, what's not to love about this dress? I'm in love!
I loved dressing it down with a cute pair of sneakers, but adding the baseball hat took it down a few more notches. I could see this easily being worn on my days off where I am usually at home/running errands with my girls. Those days comfort usually wins, but this would definitely be stylish and comfortable!

It's amazing how different the whole dress felt as soon as I put heels on! Even adding a skinny belt could make this dress even dressier! This would be great for a casual wedding, a date night, or even if you have a business casual atmosphere at work! Instead of strappy heels, wedges could also work! When the temps start to drop, a pair of black ankle booties would look adorable, too!

This was by far my favorite way to wear this dress! I loved the casual feel with the sandals and hat-I feel like it was the most 'me' and I loved it!
This dress wore really well throughout the day as well! I wore it to travel home to my parents, lounging around the house then out to dinner with my family-it didn't stretch out or lose it's shape at all. Looooved it!
