The Perfect Summer Dress













Cotton On Lace Hem Dress c/o {On Sale for $20 right now!!}
Double zip tote {old, similar here & here}
Kendra Scott necklace c/o {on sale for $40 right now!}

Aside from meeting a ton of amazing people, one of my favorite aspects of blogging is the fact that it often pushes me outside of my fashion comfort zone. Normally, if I'd been shopping for myself, this dress would have had a ton of red flags on the hanger. {I'm short and midi/maxi dresses can be awkward on me. Intricate hemlines intimidate me, etc.} But as soon as I put this dress on, I fell in love!!

The fit is amazing, the back is fun and it's long enough to be functional. It's perfect for running errands, just hanging out or even for going on a date night. Plus, the fabric is PERFECT for hot summer weather! I seriously cannot get enough of it! Be sure to check out Cotton On for a ton of other effortless summer looks. 

PS - They are running a HUGE sale right now and almost everything is at least 30% off!!

  15. Such a fun outfit on you! I'm always ordering out of the petite section because I find that "standard" items are usually much too long on my frame. You pulled it off well!
