Style Swap: The Vacation Dress

Hi everyone! I’m Nicole of lillyella and am thrilled to be contributing to the papernstitch blog with a weekly column called Style Swap. Each week I will feature a different fashion or decor Style Staple and highlight its versatility by pairing it with other great finds to create two unique looks. I hope you enjoy it!

This week’s Style Staple is the Smocked Dress by Amanda Archer. It is a definite vacation essential because aside from looking super comfy and taking up minimal suitcase space, you can go from a day of beachcombing and sightseeing to a night of cocktails and dancing by simply switching up a few accessories.
