THE PRAIRIE DRESS TREND

THE PRAIRIE DRESS TREND

This prairie dress is going to be one of my favorites this season. But what is a prairie dress you might think. It is a longer flower dress, with puff sleeves and with a high closed collar, think: Little house on the prairie. I can luckely close this one as high, or low, as I want, because I do not like high-closed clothing. This dress is great with cool brown boots. It is such a lovely casual dress, but then just a bit more. A denim jacket,of course, no brainer, looks also very good on this dress.

Shall I tell you how I got the dress? Gerben got a gift card from his work, as a Christmas package. This is a voucher that you can hand in at many different stores. I always get that card from Gerben! Sweet hey! And I had, very coincidentally, put two dresses in my basket on the h&m site. But the voucher was not valid there, So I watched where it was. And then I saw that it could also be exchanged at the supermarket where I always do the shopping. So I thought I would order the dresses and use the voucher for the groceries. But when I wanted to pay for the groceries with it, that did not work! I  had looked wrong on the site, you could buy the vouchers there but not pay with them! So now I have two new dresses! But still a voucher! Haha, oh bad hey! I swear I didn’t do that on purpose.

Back to the styling of this prairie dress

The color of this dress is actually to light for me. Darker colors look better on me. That’s why I wore this jacket on it. I prefer it better with a denim jacket, I will wear it in spring when I have a bit of a tint, with a denim jacket. But this jacket works perfectly with the dress, it is also the right lenght, shouldn’t be any longer. I wear a leather belt in the same color as the boots and gold colored loop earrings.

    Good for you on trying the prairie dress trend, I’m not too sure about it for myself. The jacket is such a dynamic color, it was a great choice to add depth to your light dress. I’m not sure I believe you on the voucher-haha!

    I love the dress Nancy, especially with the boots and belt. I think otherwise the dress would look too “girly”. I absolutely adore the colour of the vest and what it does for the whole look and I know for sure that a denim jacket will go very well with it too. As for the story…almost even better than the outfit itself!!! You made my day start with a smile. Thanks! Love, Lieske

    That is a beautiful dress on you and I love the tan accessories! I like how the cardigan picks up the colour of the print too, it’s a great match! 🙂

    Such a funny story with the dresses! Not all bad if you got some dresses out of it, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great start to your week 🙂 Thanks for linking up with my #WeekDayWearLinkup

    Loving your story and now you can enjoy another shopping trip with your gift card. As for the colour – well I thought it suited you. Yes, most of the colour is quite light but there is also a lot of plum in there. Looks like you could wear it all year round and not just in one season.

    Excellent dress! And it looks great with the jacket. I’m on and off the prairie dress trend. Your voucher card story made me laugh. You’ll just have to keep trying to use it, like at, say, Gucci or Pucci! Hahaha.

    Would you believe I bought exactly the same dress last week? What a coincidence. I do think you styled it very nicely with the brown boots and belt and that aubergine jacket. But it will also look awesome with a denim jacket, I think! xxx

    I think I will be getting myself a prairie dress once I’m spending again. It looks fun and feminine, which as we know is not me, and why id like to experiment. Thank you for showing us the trend.

    I like the lighter overall coloring on you! AND how you balanced that with the darker cardigan and bookended your hair color with the boots. What a lovely look! I enjoy the longer look on others, but they never feel like me when I try them on, so this is a trend I will give a miss!

  18. 25th January 2019 / 18:22

    Such a beautiful dress and I love how the cardi picks up some of the color in the dress. Oh, that gift card story is the story of my life. Whenever I try to be clever, it backfires! lol!
