It’s hard to believe how quickly the summer is going by and the Fourth is less than a week away!
I have been wearing white excessively these days and have been all about adding any/all white clothing items to my collection.
I stumbled upon this dress while scouring the Ann Taylor site from an email alert I received.
The “EXTRA 50% off sale” first drew me in and then I found this in the sale section and realized that is would ring in at under $50.
Obviously, I needed it.
The length of this dress is a little different for me.
Since I border petite/normal height (I’m 5’4”) I normally tend to stay away from a
looser fit midi style dress.
It’s easy for the dress to look overwhelming on my frame and make me look a little stumpy.
This dress hits a little lower than the normal hem I go for but I feel that it works
well with the wedges.
Now for the perfect bag to make the outfit complete.
PLUS did you catch the back of the dress??
It is complete eyelet and for me (I am OBSESSED with an interesting back on any article of clothing) I just knew it would be perfect in my closet.
This bag from Banana Republic I have been eyeing for a looong time.
The ring obviously resembles a certain famous bag that has been all over blogs for a
bit so this is a great alternative.
The real suede exterior in the great tan color really goes with anything. Also, not sure if you can see it, but there are two pockets so it is really roomy. Great for carrying all one thousand little knickknacks I have to have with me at all times.
Depending on what your Fourth plans are this is a great outfit idea for a barbecue or dinner plans before fireworks. I still don’t have any solid plans on how I will be celebrating but may have to break this number out again next week to watch the fireworks.
