This weekend while I was home in Sacramento, I finally had the chance to meet up with my sweet friend Alexa for a blogger collab! If you haven’t checked out her blog, you seriously need to ๐Ÿ˜‰ She’s the sweetest, cutest girl with the best style. Not to mention, it’s always a fun time when we are together! Today we decided to link up to create this post for you where we style one piece two ways – casual & dressy! We thought this would be super fun to show how versatile pieces can be with just a change of shoes, bags, and accessories! Head on over to Alexa’s blog at ARAE’s Apparel to see how she styled her black floral dress both casual and dressy!

Scalloped Skirt: TopShopย | Chambray Top: Target (old) similar hereย | Sandals: Old Navy | Tote: Nordstromย | Sunnies:ย Tory Burch

This white scalloped skirt is seriously everything! It’s a nice stretchy thick material so it’s comfortable while still having structure. For my “casual look” I paired it with a chambray top tied at the waist, some neutral sandals and this cognac tote. (Btw, my tote is a great dupe for the Madewell Transport Tote! It’s under $50 and it goes with almost every outfit!)

Scalloped Skirt: TopShopย | Printed Pink Top: Banana Republic | Wedges: Jessica Simpsonย | Bracelet: Plato’s Closet

The great thing about this skirt is that the scalloped hem gives it that little something extra and just by pairing it with this pink printed top it becomes a “dressy skirt.” I also added nude wedges and a neutral beige clutch. I totally love pieces like this that can transition from day to night wear!
