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.

  • I have so many veggies from my CSA right now! Our family is loving the abundance, but there are also a couple of drawbacks to it. One, I’m running out of ways to cook squash. My family might throw their plates at me if I serve them up another round of roasted zucchini, and there… [Continue Reading]

  • I was not going to jump on the overalls trend. It took me right back to junior high (the last time I owned a pair), and honestly – who wants to go back to those awkward fashion days? But then I started seeing more of them… and they started to grow on me. This generation… [Continue Reading]

    Overall, I Like It
  • As you can imagine I’ve been obsessed with sites like Pinterest and Houzz, etc etc…  just dreaming about decorating my new house.  And now my latest obsession…rugs!  After being turned onto RugSuperCenter.com, it’s hard to stop. They have an exceptional selection of high quality rugs.  Seriously, you have to click and check it out.  You will… [Continue Reading]

  • What’s a girl on a budget to do when she wants a pretty table but doesn’t want to spend a penny to make it special? 1) Dig in the cabinet for anything and everything that feels like fall. 2) Head outside and bring nature indoors. Last year’s table decor was more streamlined, but we went… [Continue Reading]

  • Well like I said here, I’m diggin’ the jumpsuit craze.  You? I’ve taken my three jumpers into fall by layering them up. Scarf, denim shirt and wrap sweater paired with my favorite new pumpkin tote bag {Hannah Shoulder Tote c/o Robert Matthew}.  Perfect. Done.  Easy.  And I can’t forget to mention… Wrinkle-proof! Which is exactly how my life… [Continue Reading]

    Lovin Me Some Jumpsuits

Comments

  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!
