Kelsey Martin: Dressing Down

Kelsey Martin's outfit of the week.

— Dress: Chrysalis, Hat: J. Crew, Sneakers: Vans (find more options at Urbane), Jewelry: Gorjana, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban from Summit Shades.

I’ll be the first one to admit that I am almost always the most dressed up of anyone around me, no matter what I’m doing here in Steamboat. Whether it’s just happy hour with friends, a community event, or date night, I’m usually over-dressed. I’ve pretty much always been that way, but definitely with the laid-back lifestyle in Steamboat, it’s more obvious than in the past. But I’m ok with it! And for any of you who get dressed in the morning before work, or before heading out to meet friends, and feel like you may have over-done it, I say rock the look you want and what makes you feel like a million bucks!

That being said, I often look to take something that may be considered more on the dressy side, and play it down with accessories, to take it from dressed up to dressed down. This dress from Chrysalis (sorry, it’s last year’s but head in there to check out new arrivals!) is a perfect option. The structure, fabric, and cut is something I initially thought would be cute with wedges for work or a nice dinner. But it occurred to me that I could pair it with sneakers and a hat and voila! Now it’s a great lunch/afternoon on the town kind of outfit.

Always think outside the box with fashion. Many outfits can be taken from one look to another by simply switching up accessories. But never be afraid to rock whatever makes you feel great!
