Fact: Magnolias are my absolute favorite flowers, they are so beautiful, elegant and unique.
I recently took a trip down to the Magnolia Market, a bucket list item that I now get to check off. As an avid HGTV watcher and a definite Chip and Joanna fan, I have been wanting to see this creation of theirs ever since the first mention on their show Fixer Upper. The Magnolia Market is full of beautiful home good treasures, both big and small, that would fit easily into any decor.
I also love that they have the cutest areas to sit and relax and picnic, they have several Food Truck vendors dedicated to the venue as well as games the whole family can play. Part of the property is also dedicated to their in house bakery and is filled with delicious aromas and even more delicious treats. This is definitely a day trip worth taking to see the extremely aesthetically pleasing and well thought out grounds.
For me, the biggest allure to the Market was the fact that Chip and Joanna are such a lovable and loving couple, that they are able to take something forgotten and overlooked and make it beautiful, and that they have an eye for seeing the potential in things that others can’t. I relate a lot to that in my approach to all things fashion.
I had the perfect outfit planned for this occasion, I wanted to wear something floral, for obvious reasons lol, and something that would match the elegance of the Market. I chose this Forever 21 dress, this super cute Round Structured bag, and paired it with my Converse tennis shoes. I loved the vintage feel to the dress and the sweetness of it, paired with the relaxed feel of my Chucks. I think together they paired so well, and gave me the simple elegance vibe that I was going for.
I have been really into dressy dresses with tennis shoes lately, I feel like it’s such a great mix and a great way to get more wear out of my clothes. The best thing about this trend is that you can take “occasion” dresses and make them everyday and almost casual wear, just by changing up your shoes. Also, I love how the structured elements of this dress played with the structure of the bag, they paired so nicely together, and helped to make this vintage-esque dress feel even more modern.
Are you into this trend of wearing sneakers and dress together? I’d love to see ways that you styled this trend together in the comments!
