I always get skippy when I’m able to dual-purpose a purchase into more than one “look”. And lucky for me, this dress proves to be quite multi-functional. I’m wearing it as a skirt here (you couldn’t tell! right?!). The best part is that I can wear it year round – with tights + a turtleneck when it’s chilly and bare bones during the Spring! Can you tell this was my justification for why I should make it mine? Obviously, I had to do some self-convincing, but all in all, i’m glad I made the plunge (image below = me doing this so-called self-convincing in the dressing room)!

I must say, after browsing this collection, that Milly and Sperry Topsider are quite the (albeit unexpected!) dynamic duo. These two popular brands come from different arenas of the fashion world (debatable? ha!), BUT have come together, combing forces and talent, to create the perfect balance between lady-like-chic and pool-side “prepster! What do you think?
I’ll admit, I’m crushing on those Floral Topsiders in the picture above – they would be so cute with white skinnies and a red sweater in the summer/at the beach….don’t you think?
