Get the Look - Printed Strapless Dress

I haven't done an Instagram outfit of the day recreate in a few weeks. I typically will take my own pictures looking down at my outfit, but I was able to snap a quick iPhone shot of the full look. I am a little bummed we didn't have time to do more photos of this look, but I definitely wanted to share with you what I wore last Friday evening. 

I picked up this printed strapless dress from Old Navy over a month ago. I posted myself in the dressing room and asked you ladies if I should get it. A handful of you didn't hesitate and said, "Yes, grab it!" So, I did. I am easily influenced.

I was drawn to the whimsical dove pattern, more modest length and flirty style of this dress. I feel like it runs a little big up top. So, if you are looking to add this to your basket, I would go down a size.
 

Now, I realize that some of you aren't keen on wearing cowgirl boots, so I swapped them out in the look below with a pair of ankle boots. I have worn mine (ankle boots) over and over again. They are a fun year round staple and are a great alternative to typical open toe heels/sandals that we all have on rotation during the summer. They add a flirty flair to dresses, skirts and shorts during warmer months.

***************************************************
The new Friday sponsor feature is on week two and I have three ladies I can't wait for you to meet. Let's get started.

Ms. Kenzie with The Ashcraft Bunch has the most adorable little family. Just look at this photo. They could be the spokes-family for young America. Kenzie loves to write, so that probably explains why you can feel her passion and true feelings in every post. She talks quite a bit about her daughter (who wouldn't), her commitment to her husband and taking us through building their new home. Any OSU fans out there? If so, Kenzie is your girl. She is a die hard. Make sure to stop by The Ashcraft Bunch and dive right into reading her precious blog.

The gorgeous Nadine with Back East Blonde, did just that, she packed up her car and moved to the east coast after college to find her soul mate and find the perfect red brick house. Since her move she became a mom to a precious furball and left her day job to follow her passion to help change the world. Talk about downright gutsy. Did I mention that she throws in a few outfit posts too? You know that gets me going. Back East Blonde is filled with love, some serious moments and lots of smiles.

Let me start by saying that you have to go read Tara's with A Brew of Blessings about me section. Go now. You will instantly be hooked. I mean, she is kind of living a fairytale. An American girl moves to the U.K. to be with her Prince Charming. How dreamy right? But, she doesn't just share with us how picture perfect her life is, she opens up about real life dilemmas and her heath issue. To me, that's bravery at it's finest. Tara is stunningly beautiful both inside and out. Follow along A Brew of Blessings life's journey, the good, the bad and how she makes the most of it.

Happy weekend, friends. Don't forget to hug and squeeze all the dads in your life.

Such a cute dress, I remember seeing this on IG and thinking the whole outfit is so Texas! Which is a compliment as I'm from there and miss being able to throw on my cowboy boots anytime I please. Bostonians give you weird looks when you go out in boots! haha

Are you wearing a bra with the dress? If so, what kind? I never wear strapless dresses because I have no boobs to hold one up. Ha!
