who’s ready for a little sunshine? well, if this outfit is indicative of summer fun in the sun count me in. there’s a little floral, a little paisley and a whole lot of color. there’s even a ruffled collar that keeps this classic shirtdress on trend. and it has pockets, ladies. pockets!
in keeping with the fun and flirty attitude this dress exudes i added a splash of color with a yellow cardi, yellow slingbacks, yellow belt, and, yes, a yellow straw clutch. there’s enough sunshine packed into this outfit to keep mr. style’s solar lights burning for days. and i dare say my mood is all that much brighter. come on summer! warmer temps, blue skies, and the sun shining overhead? sounds good to me.
happy hump day, ladies.

You are right…let’s do dresses all summer!-Laurel Bledsoe
One of these days, you need to do a post on your belt collection. I too am a belt aficionado. So few people realize what a great accessory a belt can be. You TOTALLY get it. Have a fun week.
This dress was featured at the Talbots trunk show and you have styled it even better than it was in the show. Love the yellow accessories. Finding a yellow belt right now is a challenge. When I find one, they are sold out. Lucky you with warm enough temperatures to wear a sundress. You look gorgeous!
What a gorgeous print! If this dress doesn’t put you in a sunny mood, nothing will. Cute little slingback flats, the woven yellow clutch and sassy earrings make for a perfect OOTD. xoxo Glad you have temps warm enough to wear this outfit. We still have our furnace on at night. ugh…
Yellow is hard to pull off, but your take is just right. How sunny!
It puts me in a spring/summer mood just to see this lovely outfit. Besides the warmer weather in Georgia, what major changes have you made in your clothing choices from living in San Francisco? Do you continue to be able to wear most of the clothes you have already (except, of course, for the heavy wools and coats) or has your style changed much.
I saw that dress in the catalog and wasn’t sure it did anything for me, but it looks great on you! I love the yellow accents. I had purchased a pair of yellow ballet flats from Talbots a few years ago and never, ever wore them–I finally gave them to Goodwill, thinking I’d never use them and sure enough–wound up buying a dress they’d have been perfect with! Go figure. The ruffles at the neck are perfection.
So much fun! I your hair, dress, sweater and shoes! I love how many colors are in the dress, so you could change it up with accessories in another color or mix them. You could even change the color to one of the darker colors in the dress for the belt. Neat! Happy summer!
Wow Beth, what a great combination – beautifully done.
