Meet Me in the Meadow Remix

Oh hello there, 

I'm back with part of 2 of my Mata Traders remix challenge.  Up to bat this time is the Meet Me in the Meadow Dress.  Between the whimsy floral print, the pleats, and the retro silhouette choosing this beaut to remix was an obvious thing for me.  Instead of remixing through the seasons, like I did the last time around, I decided to remix through the occasions.  I have a lot of dresses in my closet (I'm sure many of us do), so my absolute favorites are always the ones I can take from day to night.  This just happened to be one of the perfect pieces to do just that.  

At School: Study Date // Coffee Break
As the cooler months roll around, you can find me from day to day in a pair of tights, some flats, and a dress with a sweater on top.  I like to keep it comfy, just a tad casual and cozy as I hit the coffee shop for a little pick-me-up.  Layers & some comfy shoes make this dress an easy piece to conquer the day with.

The Details:
Hat & Denim Shirt: Target
Sweater: swapped via Meghan of Kiddo TV
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Clarks

Around the Office MataOffice1

Before we moved to a new town and I was working full time at a school - this was pretty much so my uniform.  Adding the blazer, blouse, and lady tie - make the dress look professional and pulled together without being plain old boring office-wear.

Beret, Blouse, Blazer: Vintage // Thrifted
Lady Tie: Flapper Girl // Etsy
Tights: We Love Colors
Shoes: UO

Day Party - Birthday Celebration // Baby Shower

Party time!  Nothing says day party like a pretty floral dress like this and cutie pie cardigan.  Add a fun and funky pair of shoes and voila! - I am ready to celebrate!

Scarf: Vintage // Thrifted
Cardigan: Target
Tights & Shoes: Modcloth

The Night Event - Wedding // Dinner PartyMataWeddingParty1

Speaking of celebrations - the full skirt here paired with deeper colors make this the perfect piece to party the night away in whether it be at a wedding or dinner party.  I kind of love going a wee bit over-the-top and wearing a bold accessory to complete the look.  This fancy schmancy headband was really all I needed to do just that.

Shoes: Modcloth

  7. You look perfect in every single one of these!

  8. You are such a remix master. These all look so distinct and different from one another, but each so very you and together within a style, you know?

  9. What an amazingly versatile piece!! You are so fantastic at mixing pieces, and bright colours. I love every single one of these looks. It's amazing how one piece can be worn so many different ways

  10. You truly amaze me. You are the most genius color mixer and everything always comes together perfectly. I love how quirky the office look still is, haha. The blue tights really punch it up! I think my favorite look is the day party look. The cardigan is just so sweet and such a nice complement to the dress. I also adore the headpiece in the last look though. Each look has it's own special elements and touches!

  11. The Modcloth shoes are sooo pretty! And I looove that sweater!

  21. What a fun idea for a remix and I LOVE them. I kept scrolling thinking one was my favorite until I got to the next and would think it again :) You have the most amazing closet and all of your shoes here are incredible!!! What a great dress, and you're right- the best ones are ones that can be worn day/night for different occasions.

  22. Amazing post, my favorite is the Day Party look! Beautiful! I really enjoy your blog so far and would love to follow each other--please visit mine and I'll follow you back :)

  23. This is such a beautiful colour story and lovely outfits. I love the Day Party dress print and the mustard yellow flowers. Hope you have a great week dear. xx/Madison

  24. What a wonderful post, Marisa! When it comes to pairing clothes, you're a champ! ;) I love this dress, its pattern, its color, shape, everything. I'm always hesitant to buy plaited skirts/dresses because they're a pain to iron; they look lovely, though.

    Happy Halloween! ;D

  25. Everything about this dress is absoltely perfect. I can't even begin to explain how much I love it. All these looks are wonderful and I couldn't possibly choose a favourite - they are all too good.

  26. The more I look at your 1-dress-4-occasions posts, I feel like I want to make one too :)
    This dress is super pretty and I love all the ways your styled it, but I have to say that I love the summer- version with nothing on top most, because the beauty of the dress is not hidden :)

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  27. i didnt know you used to work full time at a school, how fun Marisa! what did you do there? and I LOOOVE this remix, so many great looks that really are perfect for so many diff occasions. i def cannot pic a fav.
