People often ask me how I afford to buy all the clothes I style for the blog and Instagram because it seems like I’m always wearing something new. Let me clue you in on a secret! I spend less than $200 a month on clothes/pieces for the blog. I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m married to the world’s most frugal person. But even more so, I’ve learned the value of restyling pieces I own to make them work for multiple seasons.

As a real-life girl, with a real-life budget, I strategically buy items I know I can wear again because that’s reality, right? And, I’m clearly not the only one who lives like this. Last week, I took an Instagram poll asking if you guys prefer to see new outfits or key pieces restyled different ways. 100% requested key pieces restyled, and I’m happy to say we are of the same mind!

So, I will continue to show pieces that are worth purchasing but can be restyled so you never get tired of them! The ones you see me wear once or twice still hang in my closet, but I wear them when I’m out experiencing life outside of the internet! And a little tip, plan your outfits 1-2 weeks out. Excessive? Maybe! But it’ll help you restyle those key pieces so you don’t feel like you’re re-wearing the same items, the same way! It also saves you time and stress in the morning when you’ve pressed snooze 5 times and are running out the door!

This all brings me to this dress from Nordstrom that’s an instant closet staple. It’s a body-con style but the ruching on the side makes it flattering on any body type because it’s instantly slimming (I promise!). It’s under $60 and comes in 6+ colors. It’s sleeveless but also comes in a long-sleeved version here. Both versions are extremely versatile making this dress easy to style up or down for virtually any occasion. I got this dress in black as it’ll be most versatile throughout the seasons. However, there are a lot of pretty pastels that are great for Spring and Summer too. I’m wearing an XS here, and it fits TTS. Plus, as you may have guessed, this dress works for both regulars and petties (wooo!!). Today, I’m sharing 4 ways you can style this dress for a quick and easy go-to outfit!

Styled with a denim jacket, this dress is perfect for a lunch date. You could wear this out for an afternoon with your girlfriends or a lunch date with your guy! The denim jacket downplays the shape of the dress to make it more casual. I’m wearing knee-high boots here but you could easily wear booties or your favorite sandals to make it even more casual.

Paired with a suede jacket or blazer, this dress is perfect for the office! It falls right above the knees so isn’t too short. It also has thicker straps so you don’t have to worry about breaking any dress codes! Paired with your favorite heels, this would be the perfect work outfit (and yes, it was freezing so I did not change my shoes as planned! 😋)

If you’re going out with that special someone or the girls, styling this dress with a cardigan and boots/booties or heels makes for a casual date night outfit. I opted for a dark green cardigan here, but you could wear virtually any color cardigan given the neutral color of the dress.

Wearing just the dress with a necklace would be great for a night out. It’s chic yet comfortable enough to wear for a long time. Plus, the neckline allows you to wear any style of necklace, which means you can constantly transform the look of the dress! Paired with knee-high boots this dress is ready for a night out!

  1. I love how you’ve styled your dress in different ways. I also prefer re-styling my clothes into new outfits, especially since I have so many in my closet. A black dress can never go out of style! xx
