Keepin' It Simple

Dress-Urban Outfitters

I can't really think of anything better to wear on a hot, sticky summer day, other than a tiny and light weight dress. My standard for dress length goes right out the window when the temperature rises above 80 degrees, plus the cuteness factor outweighs the debate of whether or not it is appropriate anyways.
I love the little polka dot color combo paired with the navy and the way too adorable scalloped edges around the bodice. Oh, and the back zipper...always a winner.
(You can see how I styled this dress for Fall here!)

Do you ever go shoe shopping in your own closet? Well, this lady used to work in retail and every retail job I had consisted of a shoe store. So, I have lots...but only regularly wear the same few pairs, until I get bored and think I need a new pair of this or that in a particular color. This outfit needed bright red shoes, so out came the many boxes and a few minutes later I was sportin' a barely worn pair of cute red flats. Score.

Hope your week is going well so far! Guess what, it is Friday tomorrow!
This weekend I am having a girls weekend away with my closest cousins and aunts.
Shopping and drinks are on the agenda...oh boy! :)



  1. i desperately need to purge my shoes - i wear the same 3-4 pairs! love your dress! it is sooooooooo hot out! hope it cools down a bit this weekend for us!!

  2. Agreed, love wearing cute little dresses in the heat and this one is SO cute - love it paired with the flats too!! xo

  4. I love the print on this dress very much! You are so lucky to have worked in shoe retail and have such a great selection. I'm pretty sure I would go bankrupt working in a shoe store. ;-)

  6. This dress is so cute! I like to store my shoes so I can see everything, but I can see how it'd be way more fun to store them in boxes and open them up once in a while- it's totally like shopping- or Christmas!

  7. So simple yet so pretty!
    I do, I totally shop in my closet!
