Dressing Down by The Colors of Ana

Dress down outfit: Modcloth dress and sneakers

Hi all! My name is Ana, I'm the blogger behind The Colors of Ana and I'm so excited to be Emma's blog guest today! 

For our "dress down" theme, I picked a ModCloth dress that I've only worn once for my sister's graduation party. I'm more of a basic girl, so when it comes to fancy dresses I tend to only wear them a couple of times for special occasions. However, this collab theme with Emma challenged me to bring this dress back to life and I'm actually really happy with the look :)

I knew I wanted to try this dress with a pair of sneakers so I chose my Steve Madden ones. They're pretty much my go-to sneakers when I want a "I don't care" look so I knew they would work when paired with a girly dress.

At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to wear the dress by itself because the upper half has a design on it and it would've still looked dressy even with sneakers. So I decided to wear my black mesh t-shirt, which I stole from my husband's wardrobe and it's officially part of mine... permanently ;) It's so basic and comfy, I just love it! 

I think this look turned out to be a success and now I even have some ideas for other clothing items that are just sitting in my closet because they're on the fancy side of things! 

Thanks so much to Emma for doing this collab with me! For more street wear-type posts (and more) visit my blog! And don't forget to follow me on Instagram as @thecolorsofana! :) 



Bonjour! Je m'appelle Ana et je suis la blogueuse du blog The Colors of Ana. Je suis très contente d'être l'invitée d'Emma aujourd'hui.

Pour notre thème "habillé mais simple", j'ai choisi une robe Modcloth que je n'avais que porter une fois auparavant. Je porte beaucoup de vêtements simples donc je ne porte pas souvent des robes. Par contre, pour cette collaboration avec Emma, je me suis défiée de reporter cette robe.

Au début, je ne savais pas si je devais porter la robe toute seule pour montrer le détail au buste ou mettre un haut pour le couvrir. J'ai mis mon haut à maille (qui vient du placard de mon mari) au-dessus de ma robe. Ensuite, j'ai mis mes baskets Steve Madden qui simplifient le tout.  J'ai adoré ce challenge et j'ai beaucoup plus d'idées question robe et baskets!

Merci Emma d'avoir collaboré avec moi! Pour plus de looks etc. rendez-vous sur mon blog. N'oubliez pas de me suivre sur Instagram.

  7. I think Ana's done a wonderful job of dressing down the dress though I do wish I could see the dress in its entirety before she slipped the top on, though; the comparison would've been fun! I love the choice of sneakers and I think a laid back beanie would've further relaxed the entire outfit, but I'm loving the look all the same! <3

    1. May, I could not agree with you more. I love how Ana dressed down the dress. I hadn't thought of it, but you're right, it would have been fun to see the "before" and "after" of the dress. I'll keep that in mind in case I do dress down a dress this way.
