A dress a day for a week challenge- Hard to style dress

I bought this dress a few months ago but never wore it before because it seemed difficult to style. It's lightweight and clearly a summer cloth so I had to wait until it got warmer,too.

It's an English brand called Wallis. I checked their site and they make nice affordable dresses. Mine obviously is from a much older collection but I can't say when.

 Anyway, I woke up this morning and I knew exactly how to style it. You see the dress has a huge collar in white so I made the white continue in my upper body by wearing a simple white tshirt on top.

Then I put   on my beige cotton cardigan given to me by a friend and tied everything with my leopard print belt and was ready to face the world. I'm very proud that I managed to style a sort of granny dress into something wearable.

I still have doubts if it's age appropriate or well put together. I want my style of dressing to be considered normal but with a twist. I don't want to provoke, I'm not a teen anymore but to insert something playful and unexpected in my outfits. And I'm greatful that I can find lots of unexpected pieces at my local market for just a few bucks.
