An Added Detail

embroidered smock dress

Loose fitting smock dresses are another go-to for my summer wardrobe. They are lightweight, airy, feminine and forgiving on days I want in indulge in a few extra calories. I saw this dress from Fancy Free and yes, the smock style got my attention, but the embroidered pattern sold me. I have always been drawn to boho inspired embroidery on any piece of clothing. It's playful and provides an added detail to your summer style.

This is such a great summery look! I wished I could wear loose dresses like these but they just don't agree with me (unless I want to look like I am about to give birth to triplets).

I am all about comfy dresses for summer this year! And I love the boho look - so this is perfect! I would never have thought to pair a mint accessory with this outfit. I would have gone with boring red! Which is why I read your blog every day - so you can teach me how to be stylish:) Plus, I just like you :) Susan

Okay, you've inspired me. AGAIN. I have a little embroidered black swimsuit cover up, but every single time I wear it I wish it was just a little bit longer so I could wear it as a dress. Guess I need to just buy a dress!
