The Modern Heart Dress: 3 Ways

3 Ways To Wear ItHi friends! Today we're styling the Modern Heart Dress from my new collection 3 ways! I love this dress because it is really really comfortable. I love a dress that is casual enough to wear just about anywhere! The sleeves look super cute rolled up and the heart pocket detail adds a bit of fun. Extra big thanks to Katie for modeling these looks. 

Look 1For this first look, we added a pop of color with a mustard cardigan. We kept the rest of the outfit neutral with a pretty leather tote and comfy saddle shoes. This outfit is perfect for a day running errands or a flea market trip! 

Styling Details: Dress/Cardigan/Bag/Shoes.

Look 2This next look is basic and fun. Katie wore a cute weekender bag and tied a scarf up in her hair. I prefer to roll the sleeves up whenever I wear this dress, it just looks right to me. This outfit is perfect for a last minute road trip or a weekend adventure! Don't forget your instant camera. 😉

Styling Details: Dress/Scarf/Bag/Shoes(similar).

Look 3For this last look we layered a dress over a dress! The mix of patterns and textures is really fun. This outfit would be perfect for a bowling date (yea- we wear dresses to the bowling alley) or a pumpkin patch and coffee date with friends. Tis the season for creative layering!

  • Kaitlyn, i hate to hear that! so sorry. 🙁 i hope they restock more too- keep watching because as returns come in the inventory may change! xoxo

  • This dress just arrived in the mail and to my great disappointment it was much too small! I’m really torn up about it since it’s out of stock now! I’m really really hoping you guys do another round of stock because it’s the most lovely dress and I adore it!

  • This is my favourite dress from this collection! Really beautiful. Love the first two styles!!

  • this is awesome! I love being able to style an outfit in so many different ways, it’s so versatile and creative!


  • Hi there! Looked through modcloth for shoes similar to the ones in #3, but didn’t see anything quite like them. Who makes those adorable t-strap clogs? They look so comfy!

  • I love the 2nd look! SOOO freaking cute!!

  • oooh, option 3 is my fav! i love the layered look and the first layer peeking out the bottom just a touch. really cute.

  • Super cute! I especially love the layered dress look–I’d never thought of that. Now I’m going to have to look through my closet and see if I have any dresses I can layer . . . if not, I suppose I’ll just have to plan a mod-cloth purchase in my very near future 😉 Great work!

  • Adorable outfits. The second one is my favorite!

  • I love the first look best, but they all are adorable!
    And, yes, I wear dresses everywhere, too! They’re the best!
