 Dress: Gap, Heels: Prabal Gurung x Target (old), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Alexis Bittar necklace, Marc x Marc Jacobs watch, Jimmy Choo x H&M bracelet, Thrifted Coach Willis

Although Gap's recent campaign has emphasized normcore, I didn't give it much thought. As evidenced in this blog, I fancy bold colors and eclectic patterns just as much dressing simply. The notion of "dressing normal" just sounded counter to my instincts. Yet, as history has taught me, I'm not one to ever say "never say never" (anymore) and here I am…looking quite "average." A simple dress with heels. Nothing more. Nothing less. It is what it is. 

It's actually refreshing if you think about "dressing normal." Throwing on the basics and looking just as put together as the other more ostentatious outfits is awesome. It's even liberating to know that I feel just as good without all the "extras." 

But, don't think this one look will stop my eclectic style vibe. After all, I am who I am.


  1. Really cute dress .. I love how it's just a clean lines type of dress .. looks classic!


  2. Gorgeous! I love the denim dress and the pop of red looks great!

  3. What a cute dress! Dressing simply is very refreshing—I definitely love my basics! I like that you kept with your style by adding a bold shoe and necklace. You look great!

  4. Ooh, what a gorgeous dress, and you've accessorized it so perfectly! Love the design of the necklace and the colour of the shoes :)


  5. Honestly, I don't understand normcore. It's okay if someone's style is minimalist, but to me normcore just seems boring. I'm with you on bold colors and prints and having fun with my style! This denim dress is really cute!

  6. Such a cute dress! It's so versatile and looks very comfy! Loving how you added some bright heels for a youthful and fresh look :)

  7. I love the minimalist look! The play with colors in your heels makes this outfit not so normal and adds the effortless chic you always have.


  8. Love the pop of color with the heels! And that bag is perfect!

    Love, Karina

  9. Cute dress!

  10. I think it's refreshing to see you in such a minimal outfit! I still love your eclectic style, but it's fun to mix it up, huh? Great pop of color with the heels still ;)

  16. Oh my gosh this look is too cute! love love the dress and the red shoes!

  17. love that denim dress!! so cute with the red sandals

  18. Sometimes it's nice to go a little basic and not worry about mixing all the bling and patterns. I love this simplicity! And of course those red Prabal heels! <3


  19. Ok, I beg to differ, I see "normal" as average. There is nothing average about you.
    I do love this simple dress, but I love that you added orange sandals and a bold pendant necklace.
    This is not an average or normal outfit, face it, you special to be merely normal.
    Love that you thrifted that gorgeous bag!
    ( a normal person would have paid full price and might have some debt problems..)

  22. i like how you paired the dress with those colorful heels and that beautiful necklace!
