Sometimes it can be hard to find dresses that work for different occasions. They’re either too short, too trendy or too low cut – in my experience at least. When I found this one I was excited to share it because it’s extremely versatile and works for so many different things from day-to-day events to the office. Plus the subtle bell sleeve is right on trend but they won’t seem dated in a year or so.
Stop. I know what you’re thinking… another gingham off the shoulder top?! Let me explain, this one takes the cake for all gingham tops this summer. It’s light weight (i.e. wearable in hot weather), comfortable, on-trend AND it stays in place. Plus it has this cute ruffle that not only goes over the cheast but also the sleeves.
Now that it’s June the countdown to summer is really on. Our summers don’t really heat up until July or August but I like to stock up on essentials to get me through them this time of year. On that list is a great summer dress. This is the perfect relaxed maxi. I tied it in a knot at the hem to show off my wedges but it can also be worn with a pair of flip flops for an easy casual look.
I’m pretty minimal with my accessories, but every now and then I like to mix it up. One of my favorite pieces to bring into the mix is an oversized watch. This one is from Daniel Wellington and until June 15, they’re offering 15% off with the code ASHLEYFASHION. I also have this one that Jeff likes the steal.
Have a great day – thanks for reading!
Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays to dress for. Which is probably why I was so excited for this post! Ironically I’ve never been a huge fan of the day, because other than all the chocolate shouldn’t we celebrate love every day?
I’m usually more of a pink girl but this red dress seemed to scream my name. It’s under $30 and is an instant closet staple. Let me say that again, it’s under thirty dollars! Unreal!
What I love about V-Day dressing is you can really have fun with it. Play up the feminine details and pile it on. It’s one of those “more is more” days in my opinion and you really can’t go wrong with a flirty dress.
