Tiered Dresses and Tote Bags

Two simple spring dress outfits, wearing a couple of my tiered dresses from Kmart. Kmart keep coming out with these dresses every season and I keep buying them! Paired with some practical tote bags for busy weekend days.

What I wore:

Earrings: Piper recycled metal turquoise tassel earring
Dress: Kmart short sleeve tiered knit dress in indigo ink with pockets
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
Bracelets: the usual plus turquoise and silver bracelet stack
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur Neverfull

Why I wore it:

This was such a warm day! Wanted to put in a little bit of effort for a playdate with a few friends so I dressed up this navy tiered dress with some matchy-matchy turquoise accessories. I thought the turquoise and silver beaded bracelet stack matched nicely with the turquoise tassel earrings, even if the metal on the earrings is gold. Added my studded sandals as it was much too hot for closed in shoes, and my big Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote is perfect for all the water bottles and snacks needed for a playdate!

Last worn: turquoise tassel earrings, navy tiered dress, silver and turquoise bracelet stack, studded sandals, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

What I wore:

Necklace: thrifted Eb&Ive black wooden bead multi strand statement necklace
Dress: Kmart short sleeve tiered jersey midi dress in amber 
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
Bracelets: the usual plus black and gold beaded bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff medium unlined tote in black with shellac studded dome hardware

Why I wore it:

This was another hot day so again I relied on a tiered dress! This midi dress is longer and provided great sun coverage for my legs. We had a busy day with a playdate at the park in the morning, and then an event with the kids in the evening. Went really matchy-matchy with the black accessories against this dress - with the black tote bag, black and gold beaded bracelet and black statement necklace. I don't think it looked Halloweenish, but I do worry about that sometimes when I pair this amber dress with black!

Was a nice outfit for a hot day, although it was really humid in the evening and I wished I'd picked a shorter dress.

Last worn: amber tiered dress, black beaded statement necklace, black and gold bracelet stack, Adidas Superstar sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff black unlined tote bag.

How You Can Wear It:

Tiered dresses in any length or colour are great to wear on hot spring days. They are an instant easy outfit. A few matchy-matchy accessories can make it look like you put more effort into your outfit than you did!

    1. It's a shame that the US one was so different! It's a really popular one here - they have taken over the closing Target stores.
