Pretty Summer Dress

If ya’ll have been reading our blog at all, you know how much I love dresses and skirts. I especially love them in the summer.  Sometimes I feel as though I was meant to be a housewife in the 1950’s.  Well, without all that being submissive to your husband crap!  I could see myself all gussied up in a fit and flare dress every day, waiting at the door with my man’s martini when he comes home from work. HaHaHaHa!!! Ok, never mind.  I’ll just wear a dress when I damn well please because I want to.

Alida Espadrille Platform WedgeFree People Fleur Du Jour Mini Dress

This Free People Dress is one of my favorites.  When I put it on Antoinette said “It’s short” and I said “Yeah, so.”  I am 5’2” and I think a shorter hem makes my legs look longer. So what if I’m 51?!  You just have to have the confidence to pull it off.

I feel like I should be going to a fiesta South of the Border when I slip this on.  Where’s my margarita?!?! Like a lot of Free People, it is all about the details.  Just look at the beautiful embroidered flowers.  I also love that it has pockets!  I mean, you need a place to put your hands and your lipstick.  I am also a big fan of the off-the-shoulder trend. It sure adds a little sexy to this full dress. And this coral color makes your sun kissed skin pop!! I chose these cute yellow sling-back wedges for height (again longer legs) and color. Aren’t they fun!!!

Dresses aren’t just for special occasions anymore. Don’t ever think that dresses are reserved for church or weddings. Dresses are so very versatile and easy to wear. Give them a try. You know you want to.

  1. You guys are hysterical. You know, confidence is everything. In a CVS the other day I saw an older employee with purple hair. She looked great in it. And i mean purple! When i asked if it was for June’s Alzheimer month, she said no. I told her i loved her guts and she said “honey, I went to Woodstock, I’m not afraid to wear what i want”! I loved it. You’ve got one life, if it feels good to you, wear it. Btw – u do rock this cute outfit!

  2. Awww, thank you Carla!! I have had these shoes for years but there are similar ones linked above😘
