Wearing a Dress as a Duster.

Remixing a summery maxi dress as a spring duster.

My impatience for warmer weather is at an all-time high. I cannot wait for cutoff denim shorts, sandals, and floaty dresses. In the meantime, I’m getting my fix by repurposing a summery maxi dress as a duster. I threw this dress on over the top of a basic white blouse and skinny jeans (these jams from Madewell are a necessity) and instantly it felt like spring was just around the corner. A quirky statement necklace and a pair of olive green mule slide sandals add some interest to the look. (I love adding over-the-top pieces like this necklace with more minimalist elements, like the mules.) Solid spring look, no?

This dress is acting as a duster now, but don’t you think it’ll be the perfect summer maxi dress come May and June? Totally thinking about bringing this baby to Greece– it would work as a dress for day or night, and would make for a cute swimsuit cover-up or as a duster worn over denim cutoffs and a tank top. The possibilities!

I am right in the middle of Kansas City Fashion Week; we kicked off the season with a black tie event on Tuesday night, and then I have runway shows tomorrow + Saturday downtown. So excited to see what the designers bring to the table; I’m always so impressed! I’ll be covering the events in real time via Snap (username: ashrockchalk) and Insta stories (username: ashrockchalk), so be sure to follow along!

  1. That is a beautiful dress and it’s perfect as duster! 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to try this look for so long after seeing it on Shea’s blog last year, it’s just not been cool enough for it yet here. Soon I hope! 🙂

    Hope your Monday is going well and you are having a really good start to the week!
