if there’s a pool party involved then it’s time to put on the pink. actually, if you’ve been following the blog for any length of time you all know my penchant for all things pink. and it’s no trouble on my part to trot out my favorite color. especially when it’s on trend and oh-so-easy to find. so when rewardStyle announced the conference kick-off fete was located poolside, well, it was time to add a new dress to my repertoire. and i’m not sorry i did as i not only love the color but the ruffled front overlay that gives this simple shift dress a bit of pizazz. since pool parties are always low key i kept the accessories simple. flat white peep-toe shoes, chunky pearl necklace, and spiffy clutch handbag from lei-lei are all that’s needed to keep this ootn casually chic. now where’s that margarita?

Oh, so pretty! I love the ruffly overlay–so simple, but makes it a standout. I have an afternoon wedding I’ll be heading to, and I’ve been trying to decide what I want to wear to it– I want to be comfortable, and that would be pretty for it. I may have to go browse…
tell me what you think, sue! i was thinking this dress would do double-duty for a shower or daytime wedding. and it’s super comfy to wear.
I love the pink on you. Have also discovered I love the shade of green this dress also comes in. It’s always pool season in Fl…I may have to add this to my minimal closet!-Laurel Bledsoe
i think the green dress is a beautiful shade, laurel! and green is just as big as pink this year.
I love pink, too! Love your clutch and pop bead pearls! They are so big and fun!
So glad you love our clutch Linda. We are getting more of that pink and other colors in real soon! Let us know if you want one, but right now we do also have it available in turquoise, soft rose quartz (not on our site yet) and silver/grey.
Stock is in now!! So many colors including Beth’s pink/tangerine to choose from!
aren’t these accessories so cute, linda? i always receive so many compliments on the necklace. it’s just darn fun to wear.
I love an excuse to buy a new dress.
especially when it’s pink!
So pretty in pink – definitely your color! I love the lipstick you are wearing, could you share the color? I am a bit of a lipstick nut and love to try beautiful new shades.
