+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: July 11

Today, I just wanted to post some fun, flirty summer dresses.  No, they’re not appropriate for the office (at least not on their own). But sometimes, a swingy sundress is just what you need for a weekend strolling through the neighborhood, sipping an iced tea and window shopping.

    Love the Modcloth Dress. If only Wallpaper Prints were acceptable at the office, I'd totally get this one: https://us.asos.com/ASOS-Pencil-Dress-In-Wallpaper-Print/y5tbo/?iid=2122299&SearchQuery=wallpaper%20dress&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Blue&mporgp=L0FTT1MvQVNPUy1QZW5jaWwtRHJlc3MtSW4tV2FsbHBhcGVyLVByaW50L1Byb2Qv

    Having never purchased anything from Asos can anyone comment as to its quality? Forever 21, H&M, better than those/worse?

    Beth: I find it to be slightly better than H&M, more like a Zara.

    The first model's hair is a perfect example of why I will never, ever highlight. Yuck.

    I am 32 now, and while I LOVE a good sundress with a full skirt and have a closet full of them, I am starting to feel like I am too old to pull this look off. Makes me more than a little sad…
