One of my coworkers told me I was channeling my inner Laura Ingalls Wilder with this look, and you know, I’m not mad about it. I wouldn’t mind running through a field of lush grass with a basket in tow.

I love the special details on this dress from the eyelet embroidery, ribbon cinched waist and the scalloped trim. You can’t get more feminine than this! Unfortunately, this dress isn’t online anymore, so I linked some of my other favorite white midi dresses with similar detailing.

I hope you have a great Wednesday!!

The best embroidered dress

First of all, how dreamy is this backdrop? Hotel Esencia, just north of Tulum, Mexico, is the most serene place I’ve ever stayed. Iguanas greeted me every morning on my doorstep, and the private beach was only steps away. I can’t talk about this place without mentioning the five star service and the kind people who work there. I already miss Jorge’s and Rojo’s smiling faces!!

Now onto my outfit… This was the perfect dress to bring to Mexico. It was not only breathable in the intense heat but mimicked the embroidery you find on traditional Mexican dresses. I paired it with the orange straw bag and my tried and true gold espadrilles. What am I going to do when these fall apart?

Bright Bold Colors and Asymmetrical Lines

I don’t wear a lot of red, but when I stumbled upon this dress at one of my favorite consignment stores, I had to have it. I love the asymmetrical lines, the bright bold colors and the silk material. Not to mention, I got it for over 75% off, and it still had the tags attached! That’s a win in my book! I wasn’t able to find the dress online, but I found some other fun options by the same designer, DVF.

Happy Humpday, friends!

I love a bright colored midi dress for summer! They are great for brunches with friends, backyard cookouts and happy hours on the patio. I got this one a few weeks ago from Zara, but of course, it looks like it has already sold out. I’ve linked some of my other favorites below, and guess what?? They’re all below $200!

White Embroidered Dress

A tale of white spring and summer dresses continues… This theme started Easter Sunday and continues with this look. I mentioned last week that I have been drawn to neutrals, and this is a prime example. Something about a white dress feels fresh to me. It’s nothing new, but I guess after wearing relatively dark colors through the fall and winter, this is a nice change! I will be posting more white dresses soon!

Smocked

Did your mom make you wear smocked dresses when you were little? Oh mine did! I even wore dresses that my grandmother smocked. I remember hating them when I would play on the playground and trip on my long dress. I wish I had appreciated them then because I’m definitely dressing my future children this way.

Things have officially come full circle as I am back to wearing long smocked dresses. I could’ve guessed this would happen because mom is usually right.
