You can count on seeing me in more patterns and prints come summer and I’m always adding a few floral dresses to my rotation each summer. It feels so good these days to get dressed up in a lightweight summer dress and a pair of espadrilles after neglecting most of my shoes last summer!
Floral Dress with a Denim Jacket
As soon as I saw this J.Crew Cottage Dress in a Liberty London floral pattern, I knew I had to have it. I love how you can wear it off the shoulder or over the shoulder making it a bit more versatile than your traditional floral dress. The midi length means it pairs perfectly with espadrille wedges or flats, too. Do note that the fabric is strangely sheer so I wore my dress with this slip which I also wear under my nap dresses.
I love how it pairs with a fitted, elevated denim jacket like this one from Veronica Beard. I never knew my wardrobe needed a denim jacket that was less casual, a bit – dare I say – fancier – but I absolutely love this one! The oversized button details and the lack of collar instantly make it feel special and means you can pair it with any dress and not have it look too casual.
This outfit is perfect for a baby shower, a bridal shower, drinks out with girlfriends or a date so I love it for its versatility.
Ever since I got this bag it has been used nearly every day. It fits an umbrella which makes it perfect for carrying out on those days and nights you know summer storms will be rolling through. I like that it goes with outfits that are a bit dressy but also casual little black dresses of which I have plenty to rotate through this time of year – particularly on hot days! The netting gives it a nice nautical nod for the summer as well don’t you think?
This townhome in my neighborhood is one of my absolute favorites and is currently for sale! If you love looking inside houses for sale as much as I do, here is the listing. Isn’t it spectacular!?
Veronica Beard makes some of my favorite jackets and I’m so glad to have another that I know I’ll get so much wear out of. Their pieces are investments but so well made, have special details always and qualities that always have people asking me “Where did you get that jacket?!”
Had to take this outfit out on the town to the local ice cream guy for some soft serve with sprinkles!
I hope you’re having a wonderful week and that this outfit inspires you for a cute outfit!
