The Way I Galaxy It Dress: ModCloth & Wanelo

Today, I am excited to be a part of ModCloth’s Uniquely You campaign by participating in their weekly Wanelo storyboard challenge.

I have been a fan of ModCloth for years. Even though I’ve never purchased anything from the website, it is one of my favorites to browse for inspiration. I highly recommend you browse their amazing selection of dresses

This week’s look is centered around the The Way I Galaxy It Dress. With all the weddings and other events that Ryan and I have coming up this summer and next, this dress would be a great closet staple to take me from daytime to evening. Since I typically don’t gravitate toward this type of dark and edgy pattern, I created a look around this dress that includes a feminine flair without taking away from the galaxy print.

Although the print was a little intimidating the first time I looked at it, I realized that all the colors involved are neutral enough to pair a variety of other colors and patterns with it. I chose to pair it with a pastel mint blazer and classic blush heels to lighten the overall color palette, and let’s face it – what outfit don’t I pair with a blazer?

The small shoulder-strap clutch immediately caught my eye because it was still in the blue color family I was sticking to, but the lace mixed with gold studs added an another layer of feminine edge to the overall look. I finished off the outfit with statement stud earrings that, to me, resemble the solar system, and a gold bangle stack bracelet.

Be sure to check out my Wanelo storyboard, which includes links to all the products I mentioned.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
