Flowers and Stripes In Summer Weather

Although today is gray and promising more rain, it has been beautifully sunny lately and is supposed to be again starting tomorrow. I am enjoying wearing summer clothes. Since our warm months are much fewer than our cold ones, I am always super excited to put on summer dresses and show off my terribly white legs. (I try to embrace my white skin since it is what I have, but it is challenging sometimes when I start seeing the gorgeous tans people sport all summer.)

So this little gem of a dress is an Old Navy find. I bought it when it was still cold out when I went in looking for workout tanks and there it was on sale and so cute! I don't have many strapless tops or dresses because they are a bit of a challenge to get the right fit over the girls, but I thought I would try it anyway and look how cute it is. I love that it is fitted in the bodice but has cute pleats at the skirt which makes is more comfortable and loose and maybe even a bit more casual.

For the scarf, who doesn't love a fun pink light cotton summer floral accent? Ok, there are probably plenty of people who hate pink and hate flowers and maybe even who hate summer, but I'm not one of them. And the fact that it is the perfect match to the dress with the pinks being in perfect shade and the blue inthe flowers matching the little stripe in in the dress, I love it even more! And it gives me just a bit of extra cover which is nice for this dess while going for a slightly more casual about town look.

The statement necklace just early pops on that much bare skin so I went for it.

For some reason I completely forgot to take shoe pictures. Next post with these I'll try to remember. They are pretty cute and a nude wedge is so wearable in the summer. Pretty much goes with everything from shorts to jeans to dresses and skirts and can be worn dressy or casual.

Dress is from Old Navy. Cotton scarf is by Blue Pacific. Nude wedge sandal is Pour La Victoire. Bling is by Kendra Scott seen here and here. And finally, sunnies are by Mugler.

    I love this outfit! As an Asian girl married to a midwestern white boy, pale is beautiful!

    Wish I could wear strapless dresses. Gravity, unfortunately, is a much stronger force than my girls.

      And the gravity factor is why I have so few! Strapless bras are only short time wear. So although this one fits nicely, I won’t wear it for a long day because I don’t find strapless bras super comfy.
