Summer Style: Florals

Dress: Old from Che Bella (similar "feel" here),  Wedges: Old from Che Bella (similar here)

I've had this dress for 8 years.  EIGHT!  In fact, most of my clothes are ones that I bought way back in the day.  I love this dress, (it's one of my favorites), and it's still in perfect condition.  It's also super light-weight, which is perfect for these North Carolina summer days.  

This is the last week of our June Style Series...(and we have a special surprise for you tomorrow!)  This month has flown by!!



This week we are featuring Summer Florals.




Kristen from The Mrs and The Momma, Chelsea from Haute Child in the City, and Jamie from Stylin' Mommies are looking beautiful in their floral outfits.




What is your favorite item in your closet?!

See our first week here where we showcased Summer Brights, our second week here where we showcased Summer Hats, and our third week here where we showcased Shorts. 

*Friday is June's Favorite Things Link Up!  It's a great way to recap your month or week, talk about your favorite products, fun finds, etc.  Hope to see you then!* 

Linking up with ShannaAdrienneAmy, and The Pleated Poppy.

You live in North Carolina!? Lucky you, I grew up there and I miss it so much. I live in PA now. But I looooove this pretty dress! It's got such a cute look to it, and even looks a little vintage! Also love the shoes!

8 years? That's amazing! I need more simple staple dresses like that, that make an amazing outfit all on their own.

Jordyn Sifferman said...

Okay, you ALWAYS have the chest finds from old navy, but I always have such a hard time when I go there. I need you as my old navy shopping companion, I've got the $2 flip flops covered but I see so much more potential available!
xxoo,

Megan said...

Dresses are my favorite thing in my closet. They're comfy, cute, and cool (which is necessary in southern summers). I wish I could fit in outfits from 8 years ago!

Ragan said...

You look so cute in this dress - I would NEVER guess it was 8 years old! It has such a fun vintage feel, I wish I could find something like that!

WOW, I think that is a sign of a good piece - one that looks just as current now as it did when you bought it 8 years ago! I just started realizing just how long I have had some of my clothes... I can't stand the idea of losing them! ha

It's a very interesting dress. I never see things like that at the store. Then again, I don't really look for them, either. I guess to be more accurate- I do not see dresses like that in the front window or next to the register on the mannequin one stands beside while waiting to check out. (And, in some cases, pokes a few times to check if it will come to like like in that 80's movie.)

Sisters Marie said...

i love all the combinations here! you dress is nice and summery...perfect with the yellow heels!

this looks SO CUTE on you! I love that it has sleeves (I hate dresses without sleeves because I hate my arms) and that cute little ruffling at the bottom.

plus your hair looks gorgeous like this!

Rachel Lynne said...

Cortne said...

I'm so jealous over that dress! You look precious in it girlie.

Love this dress! :) one of my biggest regrets when I moved around in college was getting rid of clothes....barely anything I have is more than 3 years old. Never again!
