I have such a soft spot for wildflowers. In college when I had the joy of having my old mare Miss B there with me, I would spend sunny afternoons with her grazing, in fields of wildflowers that came up past my knees. These were of course Texas wildflowers in the springtime, but any time I see an unkempt field of flowers it brings a smile to my face. Likewise, when I see wildflowers spotted across a frock.
This dress is from one of my favorites Red Dress Boutique, and the light cotton-blend fabric is perfect for these late summer days. I styled it here with some gold platform heels, which only caused me to twist my ankle approximately 3 times!
Into fall, I'll style it with some white booties, and a denim jacket tossed over my shoulders.
As a woman, few things are as exciting as finding out your dress has pockets. But finding out this cutie little blue gingham dress has shorts built into it? I'd rank that up there with pockets!
This dress has all of the cuteness of a summer mini dress, and the shorts are a nice addition so you don't have to live in fear of the wind, or having to bend down & pick something up. The corset-style bodice & pin tuck-detailing adds some trending touches to this classic summertime gingham!
I styled it up with my espadrilles, little flower basket-bag by Kate Spade, and this extra-long Barbie-inspired bow from G&G!
Hydrangeas have always been one of my favorite flowers. I remember the large, fluffy bunches of flowers that grew alongside one of my childhood homes in the summer and their sweet smell as I'd play outside with friends. It was so eexciting the years when they'd come in pinks and blues, because my mom would add soil of different acidities. So when I saw this print from Hill House's summer collection, I knew I had to pick up something in it.
Since I have several classic nap dresses, I decided to switch things up with this new style! This is called the Dottie, and she's just as fun as the name would suggest! The triangle-style top adorned with ruffles is just so fun for summer!
I styled it with some espadrille wedges & a raffia handbag to play up the summery look, and topped things off with a blue satin bow to match the flowers.
I'm a long-time lover of the nap dress. Hill House Home's signature dress that's cute enough to wear out, and comfortable enough to not. These tulle versions are perhaps a little less easy to nap in, but all the more fun!
This is actually my second tulle nap dress. While not the most wearable, look at those twirls ! I picked it up in the lilac sky color last spring, and couldn't resist this ballet pink they released over the holiday season this past year. I did wear it on the couch over this holiday season, but I had to take the opportunity to take some photos of it with these blooming crabapple trees!
I styled it with some rose gold heels I picked up from Amazon, and an oversized bow from Grace & Grandeur. Shop it all here.
