Dress Determination

I’m determined to wear more dresses this summer since it’s so hot and humid here. I wasn’t sure about how voluminous this ASOS dress was so I ordered a small and extra small and ended up going with the extra small. I am usually a medium.

I wore this dress to a garden bridal lunch yesterday with these soft white platforms I found thanks to Janet. They do a nice job of bookending my hair, will go well with a woven bag I wear in the summer and are supportive and comfortable. I’m tempted to get the gray version as well.

    You could wear the grey version with the same accessories.  Your dress looks cool and breezy.  I am looking forward to pulling out summer dresses when the weather warms up more.  For Spring skirts with tops layered on have been great, worn with stockings to keep legs and feet warm.

    Very nice! Could work with darker cami and different shoes in cooler months as well - versatile and pretty dress!

  • Janet replied 2 years ago

    Perfect! I’m so glad the shoes worked for you too — aren’t they great? I’m thinking of duplicating too, even though I don’t NEED orange sandals. :-D

    The peasant look is a change for you, and you do it very well! Love that print.

    You mention that it’s hot & humid there; have you moved to a new area recently?

    Great outfit! The earrings echo the print in the dress perfectly.

    Gorgeous dress, Lana -- and it looks SO GOOD on you! I can see it being very versatile. Also, those earrings -- stunning, and perfect with the dress. I envy your ability to keep to a tight, cohesive palette.

    Such a pretty color mix!

    The shoes work so well with the bag and dress! Nice outfit, perfect for the occasion, and I'm glad those sandals work well for you! Good to know.

    Oh, quite perfect for the occasion! :)

  • LJP replied 2 years ago

    Really pretty!  Those earrings are perfect too :)  I'm glad those sandals don't appear to be available in Canada or I'd be feeling the need to order them .

    This dress is gorgeous on you! I’m picturing those lovely lilac boots …you have so many options.

  • Indigoprint replied 2 years ago

    So Fab! Selfishly I am pshyched that you posted as I just this weekend bought a very similar dress pattern and am happy to see it in person on a real body close to my age. Very flattering.

  • Jaime replied 2 years ago

    Very pretty style and I like the white accents you have added. 

  • chirico (Chiara) replied 2 years ago

    Very boho chic, I love it!

  • Jessikams replied 2 years ago

    So pretty and I bet you looked perfect for the event! Any kind of bridal shower or baby shower throws me into a sartorial panic for some reason.

  • Star replied 2 years ago

    Me too Jessikams!  

  • Lana replied 2 years ago

    Thank you everyone, this is such a great community. 

    Jessikams and Star, me too!  To make it worse, the invite said no presents and everyone brought presents except me!  What the heck?

    Joy and Janet, the gray sandals are on the way, LOL. 

    Slimcat and Merwoman, excellent ideas, I love versatility. 

    Stag, I moved from Memphis to North Carolina about 5 years ago, so still hot and humid. I don’t do well in the heat.
    Indigo, would love to see your version. 

  • Bijou replied 2 years ago

    Wow, you look gorgeous, the dress is lovely.

  • RobinF replied 2 years ago

    That's really annoying about the presents!

    Such a pretty dress, I love it on you. Looks flowy and cool.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 2 years ago

    This outfit is gorgeous on you. What a perfect pattern--you even had just the right earrings to go with it.

  • Debbie replied 2 years ago

    Lana-you look amazing. I love the boho look for summer and you do it well!

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    KILLER GORGEOUS! I love the pretty lace camisole peeking through, and the sandals toughen the look. Well done :)
