The Find: A Pretty Dress of Summer

Jun 13, 2022

I do a lot of window shopping for this blog.  And one of the things that I am always on the lookout for is what I like to call the “throw on” dress — a dress you can put on with no effort and look stunning in.  This is one of those dresses.

I adore the floral print on this Velvet Heart dress.  It has a cute puff sleeve that isn’t so voluminous it will overwhelm your frame.  And the flouncy skirt is a fun look for summer.

I would wear this dress to brunch, on a relaxed date (with flat sandals), or to a lunch with friends.  It’s the kind of dress that I would put on when I was running late to look like I had all the time in the world to get ready.

The Velvet Heart brand also makes this print in a drop waist dress.  And this chambray utility dress would be a great dress for casual Friday or a fun trip (wear it with cute sneakers).

    Can’t wait for the rufflepuff trend to end. This one is OK as they go, but who wants to look like an eight year old Laura Ingalls WIlder?

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
