One of my absolute favorite items in my closet is my American Eagle tulle dress. I have a tendency to obsess over its perfection, the sweet tulle skirt and the adorable laced top and while I am in awe of it, I forget its ability to be completely versatile. I purchased this dress last year after seeing it in the store window a few more times than my will power could endure.  When I tried it on I knew it was going to be a staple in my wardrobe, from the lovely fit to the soft colour- it was the perfect dress to me.

Today I decided that I would show you this dress in another
way, a way that only recently did I realize I could style it. I threw on my
much loved polka dotted peplum top from H&M and my navy coat and was ready
to begin my day.  By layering this peplum over the dress, I’ve been able to turn it into a skirt which made this tulle dress a much more adaptable piece in my wardrobe.

      Thank you so much, Lucia! You're so sweet! I try to incorporate as much of the old as the new, otherwise I'd be broke hahaha! I am so glad you're liking these photos, I think the camera has made a huge difference in both the quality but also in my comfort level, it's more fun to take photos of outfits/scenery/ everything ahahhaha!

    This is such a perfect look Bree! Love the mix of textures and the tulle skirt is a fun contrast in the cold.
    By the way, coincidentally, my favorite pie is strawberry rhubarb too!!! Weird huh?!
