Today I am on the road, so I am hoping for nice weather since I hate driving in the rain. I figure that the rainy season is getting ready to set in since my Peonies are starting to bloom. Why does the rain have to come every year and beat them to death??? Anyway, this will be a short post, and I probably won’t have time to comment back to everyone. But, don’t let that stop you from leaving a comment. There might even be a “prize” to one lucky commenter, so don’t let the cat get your tongue.
Today’s look is bright and colorful, and it is cute as can be. This is the kind of dress that you can wear to a party, and they’ll be talking about how great you looked for days.
Look at the flowy drape of the dress and how the high-low skirt is so flattering. I also love the neckline which can be worn off the shoulder, but I chose to wear it more like a boatneck instead. Sometimes, the off-the-shoulder look can make my shoulders look way too broad, so I will opt for the look instead.
The hemline in the front is right at knee level unless the wind decides to kick up. I’ll give you a tip…use a safety pin and pin the dress together to keep it from separating too far when the wind blows. You’ll see what I mean in just a minute. Lol!
I think the print is very tropical, so I added my new Savannah drop earrings and Savannah cuff bracelet to my look. I am not sure if these are a coral design or a floral design, but I love them either way. I think that I am going to order the Savannah statement earrings below which are 3″ long.
I bought this bamboo handbag several years ago. This style was all the rage because there was a Cult Gaia handbag that looked just like this, but was crazy expensive. I found this one on Amazon, and it has a 5-star rating with over 2500 reviews. I don’t carry it a lot, but it is great to take on vacation, etc.
I thought that these Rafia Strappy Heels were fabulous with this dress. These heels scream, “take me on vacation” and I think that is just what I am going to do. Lol! I love that the heel is covered with the raffia material and that these are the newest trend, the square toe. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these, and I think they run TTS.
So, I’ve told you all about my outfit, my handbag, my jewelry, and my shoes. But, I forgot to tell you what size dress that I was wearing. I usually wear a size 12 in a dress, and I am wearing a large in this dress. I think that it fits great, and that is the size that I need.
Remember when I said that you might want to use a safety pin to keep the dress from showing more than you wanted…#beentheredonethat Learn from my mistakes. Lol!!! This photo was too funny not to share with all of you.
