Sundress & Palm Trees


Upon spotting this dress while shopping for a few things before our recent trip to SoCal, I instantly new I needed it for a few reasons:

1. It is bright orange, floral print with a cute zipper detail and my wardrobe is lacking in the super colorful department.
2. It is short, summery and has spaghetti straps.
   But the main reason...
3. I could never get away with wearing anything like this in May in Seattle.
I loved how easy and breezy I felt style wise while in Cali, and could totally get used to it.

Oh and about those sandals.....
I bought those babies over 3 years ago and this was the first time I had worn them.
Cute with dress, but a horrible life choice overall.
They were definitely not made for walking the bazillion miles around Disneyland.
By the end of the day I would have given my future first born child for a pair of orthopedic moonshoes or a Hoveround wheelchair. 
I also felt horrible for making fun of all the ladies I saw in the morning that were wearing Nike's and finally understood their shoe picking ways.

Hope you all are having a great weekend :)



  1. Adore your outfit! You look amazing! And how cute is your tattoo! As for the sandals -they look perfect! And I always wear similar styles to theme park, the secret is they should be well broken in, there is nothing worse for your feet than a new pair of shoes, lol!

  2. You look gorgeous ,love the Dress :)


  3. I love the dress. I am always afraid to wear anything but sneakers when I know I will be walking a lot. I guess that is why every girl should own a pair of sneakers that goes with almost anything. I am so sorry about the sandals, they are cute if that is any help!

  4. i saw this dress at target! it looks adorable on you - especially with the little blue sandals! hope you are enjoying the sunshine, lady!

  5. So cute!!
    And yes - wearing the wrong shoes to walk around Disneyland all day in is THE. WORST. I've definitely done it once or twice in my life. Not gonna let it happen again ;) You & I will be part of the dorky Disney-Nike-wearing crew, deal?

  6. Oh no! Bummer about the shoes. I hate when that happens and you never expect it from sandals! Cute dress though!

  7. I love that dress, so cute and looks perfect for the weather! Sorry about the shoes, if there's anything that would make me want to wear orthopedic shoes it's Disneyland!

  10. Very pretty sun dress, Orange is my favourite colour. I wish it were warm enough here to wear it though.

  11. I rarely leave Target without new clothes or shoes. Such an adorable dress! Enjoy!

  12. I know what you mean about never being able to get away with it. I'm from good ol' Portland, Oregon and let me tell you... there are no sundresses 'round here yet. And when I go with bare legs of any sort, I regret it! That dress is astonishingly adorable, though. (:

  13. I agree, I don't have nearly enough color in my wardrobe latley. I've been trying to make up for it with super bright nail polish. I'm so guilty of making fun of older ladies footwear choices... Just can't help it!
