Style Day: ModCloth and Hayes Days

This week, I was selected to participate in the ModCloth Uniquely You campaign and was asked to style the Bouquet of the Season dress for an event of my choice.

The moment I saw this dress, I thought it would be perfect for an afternoon garden wedding. Here in the South, if it’s an afternoon wedding, it is either in a barn or in a garden. Though perfect for both, I decided to style it as if the wedding was going to take place in a botanical garden.

The whimsical pattern reminded me so much of the “Golden Afternoon” scene in Alice in Wonderland and I wanted to keep going with the flowers. The Sashays Gone By earrings highlighted the hints of coral in what I would say is a predominately pink floral pattern, while the Everybody Dance heel and Fare Thee Swell clutch both brought out the very light shades of pink. I can just imagine dancing into the night in these shoes! After all, the name alone evokes dancing. The short heel is perfect for it, and for not getting stuck in the soft grass at the garden wedding. Whenever I think strapless dress, I always want to pair it with a pretty necklace and the Iridescent essence necklace is just that and adds shimmer to the florals. Just in case there’s a chill in the night air as dusk sets in on the beautiful garden, the Language lab cardigan is there to warm your shoulders as you enjoy time with good friends and family, capturing moments with your Pop-up flower shop case clad phone. Even your phone is dressed for the occasion. This outfit keeps you prepared at every turn of the afternoon garden wedding, from ceremony to close of the reception.

If pinks and florals aren’t your thing, ModCloth has HUNDREDS (literally) of other dresses that might suit your fancy. I also loved the Backyard Boardgames dress, Fresh Spring Rain dress in pink, Keep your botanical dress, and the Points for Professionalism dress that’s coming soon! Each dress is just begging to be worn to that summer wedding (or two) you have on your schedule.

Which dress is your favorite? Do you like how I styled the Bouquet dress?

  1. Holy cow I love ModCloth. They are based out of Pittsburgh, which is only an hour north of me, so when I order things come so super quickly and that's exciting in itself. 🙂

    Adorable styling. Super southern belle. You go girl.

  2. Thanks! The dress totally screamed southern to me. There was a hat that I wanted to include SO bad, but I could only pick 7 things.

    HECK YES! I was like oh yeah, I'll totally do it for ModCloth. They have really expanded since the last time I purchased from them!

  3. Wow! This is so cool I have loved Mod Cloth for years. I love your picks, of course! Great job.

  4. So pretty! I love the reference to Alice, that scene and song fits this look perfectly! The earrings remind me of vintage costume jewelry.

  5. How do I always forget about modcloth?!? They have such great things, this dress is so pretty!
