Hello Friends! It is so gorgeous in San Diego today! I am really looking forward to summer this year. Especially after going to Mammoth last week and seeing snow! Brrr…lol. Now that the weather is heating up, I’m constantly on the look out for great summer pieces. I’m really loving rompers this season and dresses too. I am finding myself trying pieces that are a little out of the norm for me by adding color or a pattern I wouldn’t normally grab. Trend swapping and thinking outside of the box can help your style evolve through the years. But I will never wander too far from my tried and true pieces. Dresses and rompers are a great choice because they are effortless. Just pair them with your favorite pair of flats, a cute bag and some statement earrings and your good to go! They keep you cool on the hot days and are so stylish. With that said…to be comfortable and feel good in what you are wearing is always the goal! I did recently find a couple of very budget friendly dresses and a few items to pair them with that I want to share with you today….
I found two dresses that I want to share. The first one is the Eyelet Embroidered Off-the-Shoulder Midi Dress. Girls..this dress is so cute! I am wearing a size X-Small and I would say it runs a little large. I love the length and it is fully lined which is a bonus….however I still recommend wearing nude undergarments. It comes in 4 colors including black and has really pretty eyelet embroidery detail on it. The top ruffle is stretchy too so you can get a better fit. This dress is a must have to take on vacation! The next dress I found was the Floral V-Neck Midi Dress. It has a really cute “V” neck cut in both the front and the back which I think is really flattering. Also, it has a tie at the waist so you can accentuate your figure and get a better fit for your shape. This dress has pockets and is fully lined and true to size. I am wearing a size Small. Plus, the pattern is really fun and a little different from what I normally grab. Last thing I would say about this dress is that it is suitcase friendly! It barely wrinkles at all!
I chose this mini tote bag to complete my outfit. It’s made of a natural colored basket weave seagrass-straw which adds a nice texture to any basic outfit. You can carry it by the handles or throw it over your shoulder with the cross-body strap. The main compartment is secured with a magnetic snap and includes an inner slip pocket for valuables, while the flat bottom helps prevent the tote from falling over. It has a really cute pom-pom charm to add some additional character to the bag which I love. FYI…I do want to point out that this bag is Mini! I was pretty surprised when I got it in the mail. However it can still hold your necessities like phone, lip gloss, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, gum, etc. It is not a carry all or a beach bag tote. But this bag is perfect when you don’t want to carry a large heavy bag and only need the essentials with you.
These sandals come in six other colors. They are the Sam Edelman Carolina Sling-Back Sandals. These are not the sandals pictured but would have gone really well with either dress. These sandals have extra built-in padding. These shoes also have a contrasting stitch detail that outlines your foot. Also, they slide on and off easily without having to unbuckle them each time because of the hidden elastic behind the buckle. This is a time saver when you’re trying to run out of the door in the morning. These could be paired with practically any casual outfit you wanted to wear them with. So you’d get a lot of use out of them this season.
Thank you for reading today! I’ll be working on more fun summer items so stay tuned!
Hope u have great weekend and talk soon…
P.s. A big thank you to Walmart for partnering on this post! Everything I share, as always, are my own thoughts and opinions.
