Flutter Silk Dress (4 ways to wear it)

When I go into work tomorrow I will try to get you some more answers to yesterdays comments on Loft's new arrivals but for today I thought I'd post some ideas for the Flutter Silk Dress .

This dress is the only red item I own. I have nothing against red just somehow the only red I still had in my closet were shoes. This dress is so comfortable and honestly, it is stunning on it's own but since I don't go sleeveless I needed to come up with some styling ideas.

cardigan: Banana Republic
belt: Banana Republic
shoes: Bandolino

white military jacket: LOFT
necklace: LOFT
belt: Banana Republic
shoes: Mootsies Tootsies

San Remo Cardigan: J Crew
gold belt: J Crew
shoes:??? (don't think these actually work but the natives were getting restless)

here Cooper is crying because he thinks I am dressing to go somewhere and he wants to go too!
Sweater Coat: LOFT lounge
Belt: Kohls
Shoes: Mootsies Tootsies

Oh how I love this, wasn't impressed by the pictures from LOFT but the ways you have styled it are amazing. Very much a transistional piece that can go from Summer to Fall.

I am definetely holding you responsible for my newfound love of all things LOFT!

I loved the way you styled the dress! I also don't like wearing sleeveless dresses/shirts, so I really enjoyed looking how you paired it with the cardigans and jacket.

Regarding the style book at LOFT stores - will a SA show us the style book if we're in the B&M store?

So cute how your son put on his right flip flop - kids! I love it!

That is the scene stealer dress for me right now at that store. It looks awesome on you. That is a great color for you. I love you mixed it up and gave us different options.

Poor Cooper :(
