Sun Dress Season

I couldn’t resist.  I’m defenseless to cute dresses.

American Eagle dress

Sean and I were at the mall – shopping for him – and I saw this dress in American Eagle.  It’s super light and not really like anything I have already.

...and the back

I love the coral/orange color and the tiny floral print.  So glad it’s finally nice out!

Time for Some Spring Dresses

I went shopping with a friend because she needed a dress for an event.  I didn’t need anything….or so I thought.  On a whim, we went into a cute boutique-y store and I walked out with two new spring dresses!


Blue and tan dress

I love this dress.  It’s high-waisted and the skirt flairs out the perfect amount.  I also really like the racer-back straps.

Blue floral dress

Both are really light.  I love the flowyness of this second dress especially.


I’m so excited to wear them.  Now I just need warm weather.

Update: French Connection

Earlier I mentioned I won a gift card to 365 Hangers from Sample Sale Sites.  I used it towards the purchase of a French connection dress.  Here it is:


French Connection floral dress


It’s something a little different from what I would normally choose for myself – and I like that.  It’s good to branch out a little, right?

It’s light and comfortable.  I paired it with cropped leggings and a skinny black belt.

Maximum Style

I’ll be honest: when I first starting seeing maxi dresses in the fashion scene I wasn’t really a fan.  In all honesty I thought the maxi dresses of about 2 years ago made each person who wore one look  pregnant regardless of their actual size.  However, as the style of the dresses – as well as my personal style, I guess – progress, I like them more and more.  I initially thought I was too short for the long, flowy pieces but now believe it al has to do with the dress.  Here are some of my favorite maxi dresses for the summer, as well as a coupon code for C&C California at the end of the post:

C&C California rings tie dye one-shoulder maxi dress was $128, now $89.90

I prefer maxi dresses that are slightly fitted through the torso as opposed to straight babydoll-style.  This chique one-shoulder style from C&C California differentiates it from other similar maxi dresses.  It retails for $128 but is currently on sale for $89.90.

C&C California tie dye maxi tank dress: $128, now on sale for $79.90

Also from C&C California, this maxi tank dress has fun tie dye detailing towards the hem.  The tank-style top makes it flattering for a number of body types.  This would be ideal for spending the day shopping or by the water.  It retails for $128 but is currently on sale for $79.90.

Casual Couture by Green envelope Blue Maxi Dress: $128, $77 on Bluefly

I love the shade of blue in the casual Couture by Green Envelope Dress currently on Bluefly.com.  If you’re on the shorter side (like me), a dress designed to be slightly shorter than a traditional maxi dress is ideal.  I also love that while this dress is strapless, the fabric doesn’t billow out from the empire waist, making it more flattering.

Coupon Code: FFJULY30

Save 30% when you shop C&C California‘s site from July 11 – 15.  Just enter the coupon code at checkout.  Happy shopping!

Some ideeli site credits were burning a hole in my pocket.  I’ve been scouring their site lately for great summer dresses with COLOR.  Well, when I logged into the site, I learned today was my lucky day.  They had a great sale from Marc New York.  Here’s what I scored with those credits:

Also, when checking out, I learned I’m also receiving a free lotion gift from Vaseline.  Definitely a pleasant surprise.  I just hope the dress fits when it gets here!
