Bold Floral Beauty

Dress- Gap {Last Season} Pretty Floral Option Here, Here,  & Here
Clutch- Old- Cute Option Here / Sunnies /  Earrings, Bracelet, Ring- Lia Sophia
Gold Sandals You Can't See- Here
     Well hello there my fabulous fashionistas! I am going to post dresses from my summer wardrobe until I run out of them or the summer is over, not quite sure which will happen first.  This bold floral beauty is one of my faves! It's from the Gap and I purchased it last season after seeing it on one of my girlfriends.  I was a little intimidated at first because the print was bold, but I bought it anyway taking the chance (and I cannot resist a dress with pockets).
  This fun dress is well traveled! It's been on a cruise, to an engagement party, a baby shower, and a few dinner dates. I added the fuchsia clutch to break up the colors and I try to switch up accessories with each wear, depending on the occasion. 
Since this dress is no longer available I found some pretty floral dresses (above) that are just as versatile as the one I am wearing.  Maybe you will find the one for you!
Thanks for stopping by my lovelies!

  1. Haha, I truly cannot wait to see which one happens first: the end of your dress collection or the end of summer? Either way, I am really enjoy admiring each dress that you post. They are all SO pretty and you have such a great eye for flattering prints and color!

  16. I LOVE this dress! I sometimes feel like long dresses (to me a maxi is only a tank dress) are intimidating but you make it WORK here and make me want to try one on if I see one similar in the stores!
