Hello, everyone! Besides shorts, another perfect option for the warm days of summer is a dress. A dress is such a simple choice; add shoes and a few accessories, and you’re ready to go!
Today I am styling a super simple peasant dress. The fabric is a very lightweight cotton in black with beautiful embroidered flowers around the neckline and sleeves.
Here are some other versions that I have seen on Pinterest that are trending right now:
While this is the type of dress I could probably picked up on our trip to Cabo San Lucas in a few weeks, I couldn’t pass this by at TJ Maxx for $30! I will definitely wear it there as the temperature is usually in the 90’s.
The boho peasant look is a casual one, so flat sandals pair nicely. I added an old bracelet and my round tassel earrings to complete the simple look. And, of course, my sidekick Scooter!
To add a little additional pop of color, I am carrying a cross body bag in bright pink. This is an inexpensive one I bought on our cruise ship to Dubai in December and it seemed like just the right touch.
You can see some of the added details in this dress above: the lace hem, the continuation of the embroidered flowers across the neck, and some cute little covered buttons at the top. Once again, details make all the difference in the quality of a piece.
Thanks for taking the time to check out today’s post. I hope you will check back in tomorrow for some more summer looks. In the next two weeks, I will share how I am preparing for our trip to Cabo–what we will be doing, what clothing I will need, and what to pack.
