DENIM VEST & EASY DRESS


Do you ever have an outfit post where you think to yourself, I'm not sure the readers are going to love this? I do, adore this little easy to wear dress. It is by Elle from Kohl's and I think what I love most about it, is that it has pockets. Cannot go wrong with pockets. I added my beloved Target denim vest just for fun. I loved the pocket aspect so much that I even got a black one with little flowers! 

Here is the little flowers version

I think the reason why I don't love this post, was because it was on the day I got a little too much sun at the beach and I had the dreaded… Tan Lines only with a bright red hue ha ha!



Funny thing, nobody but me must've thought anything about it because I even had two people compliment me that night in town on what a pretty dress it was.


 Made me smile and makes me want to remind us all, compliment  someone every day if possible, because as we all know it makes their day and brings out the goodness in this world of ours! 

And now I bid a fond adieu to Summer Dress Posts for this season. I will truly miss the comfy little numbers and the kiss of the summer sun. I would probably post Summer dresses til October but I know a majority of y'all are ready for the Fall duds!!

  1. Super cute! Very flattering fit and pattern and love that it can be dressed up or down. Pockets are the bomb...I get so excited when I find a dress or skirt with pockets. My biggest pet peeve? Shirts that have the pockets sewn shut...why?!!

  7. I think this look is FABulous - tan lines and all!! Love the idea of adding a vest to a sundress. It really makes the rest of the outfit pop. Perfect summer chic look!

  8. If it matters... I am so not ready for fall duds! I feel like most people aren't, but the blog world is. I feel like we have so much more variety in the summer... pants, dresses, capris, shorts, skirts, rompers, etc... whereas in the cold months it's all the same - jeans, boots, and scarves!

    Loving this dress on you, and would love to see more summer dresses while the weather is still warm <3

  9. You just look tan to me! I think we are all 1000x more critical of ourselves than anyone else ever it, which is always a good thing to try to remember. Plus your dress is just too cute, no wonder they complimented it!

  10. First off, I love you and your amazing attitude! It's so true that if we treated someone with kindness everyday it would spread so fast and so far we'd have a much better community! Second, you look gorgeous. That is just YOUR color in my opinion! And I don't think you look too red/sunburnt or anything of the kind. Also, I always see your posts and think I need more denim in my life to throw on over cute little dresses! Hope you are having a glorious day my beautiful friend! XO -Kim
