It's a Round Two with the Houndstooth Dress Kind of Day

So apparently I was too late last time I wore this dress and none of you were able to pick it up at H&M for $10. Tragic!

I wanted to wear it differently this time — as is always my goal — so I had to brainstorm how to reel in the shapeless silhouette without a belt. Thankfully I have this great little black blazer that, while a bit hot for the afternoon, was a perfect add-on to ensure I didn't look like I was wearing a houndstooth-print burlap sack. 

Dress: H&M (sadly sold out), Blazer: Nordstrom, Shoes: Target, Necklace: Etsy

Taking a break in the sunshine!

I'm excited to try it in the winter with tights and boots, too! 
How would you style this dress?? Any unique suggestions out there?
