This is a simple navy cotton dress from the Gap that I picked up a few weeks ago and have been wearing everywhere - it's styled online and in the stores with a tie belt but looks so much better without it! It's loose, voluminous, and looks way more expensive than the $47.99 that it is currently retailing. The high neck and simple shape is a perfect backdrop for my favorite costume jewelry like this vintage doorknocker necklace (copied from my friend Elle, whose style I covered here.)
Other ways that I've styled this dress have been with cage heels, big earrings and a clutch to wear out; with a blazer and lace up flats for work; and with a beach bag and gold sandals for the beach. It literally goes anywhere!
If you haven't been in the Gap lately, I suggest you change that ASAP. It has become my favorite source of wardrobe staples that are also comfortable and extremely affordable. (Shout out to my friend Sara who reintroduced me to the Gap - I credit her with this find, plus a few of my other Gap favorites like this dress, these pants, and this sweater, all of which came with me on my 4th of July trip to North Carolina).
