Outfits recap – July 2014

Goodbye, July! The weather was much nicer around these parts which meant more opportunities to wear dresses! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: dresses are so versatile and perfect for those mornings when you’re running late or seem to not have anything to wear. Which outfit was your favorite?

I remember when I was younger and loved having dresses that I would allow me to twirl like a ballerina. (And, maybe a little too much spinning that may have led to the occasional fall). The accordion folds of this pleated dress definitely remind me of my childhood and have me wanting to twirl once again. Did I mention the vibrant mauve color effectively solidifies this dress’s girliness factor? Do you have a dress that reminds you of your childhood?

I hope everyone had a Happy Father’s Day yesterday! Over the weekend, I went to celebrate with both my husband’s dad as well as my own. It was rather warm so it called for a lighter outfit. I decided to go with this coral pleated top but before it could be presentable, I had to iron it. It only took what felt like a million years to iron. Note to self: don’t attempt to wash pleated items at home or you’ll be spending more time getting done what the dry cleaners can do in 15 seconds. I couldn’t decide if bauble necklaces are still in or not ‐ I figured if they’re not, then I could at least get one last hurray out this one. What do you think – are bauble necklaces in or out?
