Happy first day of Summer!
Maybe you live in a place like I do where it’s felt like Summer for some time now or maybe you live in a place that’s still on the cool-ish side, no matter, you probably still want a great dress for the season. Although I wasn’t really looking I found one! Now here’s the deal with mine, it was thrifted. Yup. I did a little closet clean and brought some things to Style Encore and while they were going through my clothes I was going through their racks to kill time. Then I found it!
This dress is from H&M and I’ll tell you it’s perfection. It’s lightweight, gauzy material is perfect for hot weather and it’s so flowy! Oh and did I mention it was $9? Yes! I wore it for Father’s Day when we went out to lunch with my mom and dad. It was perfect for lunch and then some shopping. Now since mine isn’t available any longer this one is similar. At H&M this one , this one, this one, this one, and this one would work too.
We didn’t carry our camera with us so my husband snapped a few with his Iphone, which was a good thing because by the time we got home it was dark and rainy. That’s Florida in the Summer, bright and sunny one minute and then rainy the next!
I was able to wear my latest addition to my growing collection of Vionics so I was literally comfortable from head to toe! Once again I’m wearing my go to Kendra Scott necklace and my leopard cuff from Accessory Concierge. I chose to carry my new (similar) straw tote from Express. I purchased my tote during the Memorial Day sale at Express; it was 40% off and I had a $20 rewards card so I ended up paying $17 (including tax) for this awesome bag! Honestly if I had one tip to give you about shopping I’d have say it would be to get a store credit card for the stores you shop frequently. I NEVER carry a balance on ANY credit card but you are often given extra discounts and rewards during your birthday month. Just be careful and make sure you pay your credit card off every month!
