The Perfect Summer Dress for under $100!

leaf print dress (under $100!) // wedges (similar here and here) // sunglasses (only $12!) // tassel earrings // spike bracelet // watch // mini pineapple tassel bracelet

Happy Monday everyone!  I am so excited for the Kentucky Derby this weekend, I already have my outfit picked out for a fun party I am attending at Old Town Social.  If you live in Chicago, you’ll definitely want to check it out. Doors open at 11am and there will be a live DJ, rounds of Mint Juleps & bubbles, raffles and even a prize for the best dressed!

Now on to this dress… I am absolutely in love with it.  When I first saw it at Express, I immediately fell in love with the bright colors and the unique hemline.  I knew it would be perfect for my vacation down in Florida, as well as the perfect dress for the summer months.  The best thing about it?  It’s less than $100!  Occasionally Express will put on extra sales, so keep a look out for those to get it for even less… you definitely won’t be disappointed!  These shoes from J. Crew, are the perfect wedges for both comfort and style.  I wore these all day running errands and at a party and my feet never hurt once.  The leather is super soft and the wedge isn’t very tall, so they really can be a casual or dressy shoe.  They also come in black and gold, which I am eyeing to pick up next!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! xoxo

    I love the way the dress is shaped on the bottom half. It gives the big girl {me} an attractive look without showing the bulge.
