Just follow my simple math equation in Friday’s post, and you’ll look tall and skinny.
Sometimes I’m so smart it’s scary.
I know I told you guys on Friday that I was going to be highlighting
some dressier spring dresses today…and I am….just not quite yet…
First I want to expand a bit on my maxi dresses post.
afternoon I got an e-mail from a reader (Hi Anna!) about how she and
her sister (Hi Katie!) showed up at a family event dressed alike over
They were both wearing maxi skirts, white tanks, and the Kut from the Kloth medium wash denim jacket found HERE! I’m loving the darker blue wash, aren’t you?!?
LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!!!
picture was very timely, because on Friday morning after my post went
live, I realized I had forgotten to talk about maxi skirts!
COME ON FASHION BLOGGER! GET YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME!
Just like maxi dresses, for years and years I’ve felt like I probably couldn’t pull of a maxi skirt, but I’m guessing I’m wrong about that too. I will definitely be trying some on next time I go to the mall.
I mean, I want to look as cute as Anna and Katie!
until then, if you girls are wanting to get Annie’s and Katie’s looks
for yourself, I’ve put together a little collage with the key pieces
needed to replicate a super similar look!
LOVING the denim, with coral, leopard, and a pop of neon yellow…and of course
the Kimberlyl necklace!
It’s such a fresh look!

I looked online and found several online that I loved!

b) Anthropologie yellow with cool waistband HERE
c) blue and grey chevron HERE (also in black and grey)
d) black and white zig zag HERE
e) black side slit skirt HERE with 54 5 STAR reviews! (also in grey and navy)

I love how the back is a different color.
Again, sorry it’s sold out.

Colorful stack bracelets HERE and HERE.
IF YOU HAVE A WEDDING TO GO TO THIS SUMMER, THIS IS YOUR DRESS!
I can guarantee you if I needed a dress for an event this summer that I would NOT be able to find one in the tri-county area.
But here I am with a PERFECTLY ME dress, and nowhere to go.
Isn’t that just always the way it is?
size reference, I’m wearing a 6. I wear a 4 in pants, but I always
have to size up in dresses. I blame the boobs. And the freakishly large
If you try this dress on and love even just 1/4 as much as I do, then you’re all set! 😉
one is a perfect example. It could be dressed up with heels and
fancier jewelry or dressed down with wedges and brass jewelry like I
dress because of all the amazing reviews, but they didn’t have it in
store. I highlighted this dress last year and got lots of great
feedback from some of you ladies that bought it! It seems to span the
ages. I remember one mom bought it for her mother of the bride dress
for her son’s wedding, and one college girl bought it for her wedding
tour that summer (she had 6 weddings within like 3 months!).
This morning a sweet reader (thanks Chamie!) sent me this picture of her in the above dress!
SERIOUSLY! GORGEOUS! Click HERE!
Do you want plus size options?
The collage below shows my absolute FAVORITES (and they all have good reviews)!
black and pink jersey shirt dress HERE / tiered lace dress HERE
floral pleated dress HERE / striped and lace shift dress HERE
So, let’s talk about heels for a quick second.
patent heels are classic and will never go out of style. My pair of
black patent in the pictures above are from Nordstrom 4 years ago. I
bought them at the last minute before a wedding I was attending. I paid
more than I wanted to (I think I remember they were around $130), but
now that I see how much I wear them and how much I love them, $130 actually seems like a great deal.
a) pointed toe sling back HERE / b) michael kors kitten heel HERE
c) low heel peep toe HERE / d) standard patent heel HERE
Nude patent heels are also classic.
I found THIS one that is right at $100.
pointy toe sling back HERE
And just because I couldn’t try every dress on, I’ve made
a little widget with some of my favorites. The dresses highlighted are
all under $200.
MAKE SURE YOU SCROLL THROUGH THEM!
going to make a collage, but we were out of town all weekend and I ran
out of time. I seriously looked at over a thousand dresses to come up
with this group that I think is the best they have. Tons of different
styles and different colors and one for every occasion!
Click on the picture and it will take you directly to the dress!
Just think of all of the events you have coming up this summer:
WEDDINGS, WEDDING AND BABY SHOWERS, GRADUATION, etc…
You’re sure to find a dress that will work for you!
