My boatneck ikat print shift style dress and neutral colored long chain necklace are both from Express. My Michael Kors thong sandals are from Belk’s. Earrings by Juicy Couture and bangles by Alex&Ani. I’m killing it in this heat right now!
This style dress is one that works perfectly for me as it’s not too short and gives a great silhouette. It works on every body type, honestly. It’s one of those dresses where you don’t feel the dilemma of only dressing it up or down. It’s great for casual outings, work, and going out. It’s such a shame that I don’t have another like it 😩
I haven’t seen many dresses like this in my price range the last couple of years and if you’re like me on a budget then you know bargain shopping isn’t the easiest thing in the world. You have to look really hard in inexpensive places for really nice things to appear! One day I’ll share with you my strategy for shopping Forever21.com 😉
Lilly Pulitzer is in and out of my price range…mostly out, but kind of in. I can spend $100 on quality. That I can do because I know it’s an investment and there are at least 3 dresses in this style that I want! Best part about them is that they can transcend seasons! The dresses are $98 and since I have a birthday coming up, I might just splurge on this. Sometimes, you just have to.
