Chambray, Floral, and a Story of My Cool Factor

Well I'm getting this post up late, aren't I? I have no excuse. I won't lie to you. I did puzzles out of a "Variety Puzzles" book I bought from Sam's Club all day long. I'm an old person, but it was enjoyable for a Monday!

I wore this about a week ago to a get-together with some family friends. It was pretty hot out, but not nearly as sweltering as the past few days have been! The denim in this dress is nice and thin so I didn't die of heat. I kept my accessories to a minimum too because who wants a big necklace on when it's ten billion degrees outside? I've been breaking out my bracelets lately instead! My wrists tend to not overheat. I'm sure you understand.

dress, ribbon belt: forever 21
shoes: xhileration - target
bracelet: great grandma collection





I hope you had a happy Monday!

Loving the dress! I wish there was more chambray around. It looks gorgeous and the lightweight-ness is great. The floral tie belt really adds to your dress.

I love how simple yet elegant the dress is. The belt adds a lovely pop of color and pattern. And the bracelet is super cute!

cute dress. Puzzles on a Monday sounds great, but then again I'm a old lady too :)

You may think I'm crazy right now, but I want your weather. I'd swap that anytime for our cold rainy 'summer' we've been having so far this year haha! I love the dress and the ribbon belt too. I love how the belt and bracelet add a nice pop of colour. I've been wearing a lot more bracelets lately too, though I never usually. It's a nice change.

I just bought this dress after seeing you wear it a while back and posted about it! I looove it...the fabric is so light and comfortable. The floral belt you added to it is really cute too. It's a great dress to accessorize. I actually kind of want to wear it every day.

I can totallllyy understand where you're coming from! I haven't worn a necklace in a while except for maybe one or two outfit posts lately. I love the bracelet you have. I'd love to have one like that! I also like the idea of the scarf as a belt! So summery and cute :)
