Flowered

The summer months are making it hard to get any pictures for outfit posts. I spend most of my time at the pool with the kids, so any time I’m actually clothed, I feel it necessary to snap a few shots to prove to myself I wore something other than a swimsuit.

And if I’m going to change out of my suit, I might as well make it worth my while. I think anything with a sassy zipper up the back should make the cut.

  • Earlier this year, I was chatting with a friend who mentioned she’d been drinking gelatin for health reasons. And I have to say, I was intrigued. After looking up the many benefits, I knew I had to try it out for myself. It’s all natural – score. Plus, I’m a sucker for anything anti-aging, and… [Continue Reading]

After agreeing to host not one, but TWO events within two days of one another, desperation is realizing that you have lost something that is essential to one of these said events.

  1. Absolutely stunning!

  2. I think the zipper along the length of the back of the dress really gives it a little extra something. What a beautiful outfit!

  3. Love the dress!

  4. I don’t think being stuck in a swim suit all the time is a bad thing!! Sounds good to me :) But this dress is definitely super cute if you have to get dressed. The floral print isn’t too much and the zipper up the back is really unique.

  5. LOVING that dress!!! The zipper up the back is great!

    It’s our blog birthday today and we’re giving away a Stella & Dot statement necklace! Stop on by – http://twogirlstwofriends.blogspot.com/2012/07/blog-birthday-and-our-favorite-wwww.html

  6. Love the back of the dress. New follower from WWW. hope to get a follow back!

  7. What a pretty dress! I love the floral print. And that zipper in the back is so unexpected and cool!

  8. Seriously stunning!
    Ava is beside me and looked at the photo and said hmmm…boobiful.

  9. Oh my! The pattern on this dress is seriously to die for!

  10. This dress is incredible…love the zipper detail down the back! It’s ladylike and spunky.

  11. The Vintage Gypsy never lets me down! I love that boutique…and that dress!

  12. Love the dress with that yellow cuff. They complement one another perfectly.

    How do you feel about the exposed zipper? Sometimes, I really love it on a dress/article of clothing, and sometimes I hate it since I feel like it might not be as trendy in a few seasons. What do you think?

    • It’s not something I’ll buy a ton of, because you’re right – I don’t think it’ll be in a couple of years from now. But at only $42, I’ll wear the heck out of it while it is still in style and move on to the next trend. I try not to spend too much on anything that’s not classic.

  13. Love the dress and the cuff really stands out!!!

  14. Such a fun background for a flower dress :) I’m so jealous of the fact that you get to be in your suit all the time – I haven’t even worn one yet :(

  15. I LOVE this dress! I love the floral and slightly poofy sleeves… gorgeous!

  16. What a gorgeous dress. The zipper detailing adds so much edge!
