If your Summer is anything like mine, it's busy and chock-full of events. That means finding styles that can do double duty so that you're ready to tackle any event, stylishly. I'm an auto yes girl when it comes to wedding and I drag my hubby ( who has to wave goodbye to his socks and sandals for a few hours) to every one. I love to get dolled up, celebrate love and yes, the dancing y'all! So RSVP for that wedding, bridal shower, gala, dinner gathering or fabulous date night because I've got you covered.
When it comes to finding that "go to" dress I look for a styles that I can wear with at least three types of shoes. A pump or strappy heel, a wedge or flats. If I find a style that can be worn easily with these shoe types then I know I can rock this dress to many events. I look at fabric and zoom in on classic styles that has a little something extra.
For this dress, it was this amazing tribal print anchored by a simple fitted shape and a very lady like side slit ( so fun). When it comes to fabric, opt for dressier. I look for silks, lace, eyelet or even a drapey cotton or crepe fabric. It's much easier to dress something down than dress it up, especially a dress. I snagged this beauty a few years ago ( see what I mean about the classics, they stick around) at Fancy Pants in downtown Boise. There's certainly some new loves so I would recommend a visit. If you're looking online I loved this style and this. Both styles are playful but has a great classic look. The lightweight chambray dress, ummmm LOVE! I would say that you are ready for those photo-ops and if I see you at a mutual event come say hi to your girl :)
SIDE NOTE: If you're in LA, visiting Abbot Kinney is a must. The stores, people and vibe is beyond cool. I had a blast hanging with my girl Jessica Rieke of J.Lee Photos. All the great shots are taken by this talented babe. If you are a ice cream lover, get ready to fall head over heels in love. You must and I mean must visit Salt and Straw. It's taste bud bliss!!
