Blue and white is one of my favorite color combos for Summer, and I just can’t help but add a dose of red when it comes to all the patriotic holidays!
Sometimes it’s red sunglasses or a red belt, but for today’s Summer of Style, I borrowed a look from my daughter, her red bandana headband. A little different for me, but I feel like anything goes in Summer!
I knew many of you still wanted it, so I was so excited to see J.Crew Factory brought it back in a new, updated print this year. And a little envious because I loved the new one even more than my older one! Until I made the mistake of leaving it hanging in the Laundry Room overnight with Mollie Sugarplum. RIP embroidered dress. So with my favorite embroidered dress now in several pieces, I had no choice but to grab the new one. Darn.
(Sidenote: We’re having separation anxiety issues with the pup, and chewing is her favorite coping method when left alone. Anyone have a direct line to the Dog Whisperer?!)
It’s such a great Summer dress, especially for the price! The embroidery is beautiful, it’s fully-lined and even has pockets! I love the knee length and lightweight cotton, too.
Fit Tip: It runs large, so size down. I’m wearing an XXS.
The dress is so easy to wear, and instantly chic. Plus, it always gets a ton of compliments. I’ll be wearing it for the Fourth of July, and all Summer long! Plus, the price can’t be beat! And while you’re at it, you need these shorts and this chambray.
So tell me, has your pup destroyed a favorite from your closet? Do you have any advice for doggie separation anxiety?!
