Fancy Floral Maxi Dress

For Spring and summer I really wanted a floral dress that was a bit more on the fancy side. For some odd reason I tried to order one from Forever 21 online and I am not even sure why I did because I ended up returning it. Every time I try and shop there I am always reminded that their clothes just don’t fit me right and I think the clothing is poorly made. When I truly want something specific I tend to wait because I always end up finding exactly what I am looking for. Patience is key when shopping for an item, especially a dress that you will really love in the long run. I can’t find this exact dress online anywhere but I did find a super similar floral style here.

Outfit Details:

Sundress Boutique Dress (similar floral dress and another option under $70!), J.Crew Shoes (similar here and here), Francesca’s Earrings (love these for summer and only $12- they come in several colors!)

What’s great about this dress is that I can wear it to church, out to dinner and summer weddings. The print is just loud enough but not overwhelming. I love the flowy detail at the top and it even has adjustable straps which is great for girls like me with a smaller upper body. I don’t think I’ve ever owned a dress with a slip in it. Makes me feel super grown up! If your shopping on a budget, I found a few floral dress options for under $65 here, here and here.

I’ve talked about trends before and how I tend to stay away from pieces that are really out there or won’t last more than a season but these new Pom Pom statement earrings are one I can really get into! I love all of the different colors they come in like pink,Β blue and white. You can easily match them with different outfits.Β  I went with white because I knew it would match most of my outfits and will hopefully outlast any seasonal color trends.

Shop the Outfit:

Sundress Boutique Dress (similar floral dress and another option under $70!), J.Crew Shoes (similar here and here), Francesca’s Earrings (love these for summer)

I bought this dress at a local boutique called Sundress Boutique (I met the girl Sarah who owns it when I worked in Downtown Melbourne and she worked in the boutique next to me). She’s the sweetest, is actually my hair dressers sister and recently opened a new location in Cocoa Beach! If your ever in that area I urge you to check it out, it’s a super cute shop with a fun boho beach vibe!!! Their other store is located in The Avenues Viera. I’ll put the address below!

25 N Orlando Ave Unit A
Cocoa Beach, FL 32931
Open 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM

      Thanks Kristen!!!!! Every winter I always feel so guilty for having so many summer dresses in my closet. Then the heat hits and it’s all I seem to wear. Then I feel okay wit it and justify buying more cute dresses hah!. Thanks for stopping bye!

      Thanks Jen!!! Other than the print, the back is what sold me on the dress originally! It fits my athletic body shape really well! Hope you had a great weekend!!!
