Today, I want to let you all in on a styling secret that takes you from casual to formal in under 1 minute.   One of the quickest and easiest ways to change up a look is by switching your accessories.  Today I'm proving what a difference a pair of shoes can make by using two popular shoe styles for this season: block heels & sneakers!

 I loved this dress with both shoe options so much and was surprised at how much they changed the vibes of the outfit.  When wearing this midi dress with sneakers, it is the perfect daytime dress.  Casual, effortless and great for a summer day of hanging out and running around town.  The black block heels completely transform the exact same dress into an evening/dressy look, perfect for an outdoor dinner or a summertime event. (I actually ended up wearing this dress with the heels to my sister's graduation!)
