Two Teens And Their Mama: A Summer Dress & Create28

A Summer Dress & Create28


Welcome to the last day of Style Perspectives, and the beginning of Create28 June with the ladies of The Blended Blog!

Last week's looks were so much fun, and I loved seeing everyone's nautical style.  Thanks to everyone who linked up with us and joined in the fun!



This week we're styling a summer dress with Andrea.  She has the loveliest dresses, so I can't wait to see what she chose for today.  Be sure to head to The Blended Blog to find out, and see who had the top clicked links from last week.

Deena and I did a little switcheroo, so today is my feature for Create28.  I originally signed up for Fringe Fun, then had a little panic moment when I realized I didn't own anything with fringe.  Deena came to my rescue, because she's nice like that, and offered to trade me for Summer Go-To.  I have since acquired something with fringe (on a brief break from my shopping ban), so I may hijack her day and share in the fun that is fringe!

Luckily for me, my Summer Go-To happens to be a summer dress.  A few years ago I discovered the wonderful world of maxis and swings and shifts.  So comfortable and cool for summer.  



This chambray shirt dress is a little heavy, so I won't be able to wear it once the temps heat up.  But around here, that might be awhile.  The espadrille sandals were a Loft purchase several years ago.  I've never worn them, because they got lost in the archives.  Which, reminder to self, is why I'm on a shopping ban!

  11. Those shoes are too cute to be lost pretty lady. I love the little denim shirtdress too. I would wear this every day off for Summer. Glad you ladies started off the month with dresses. I am shopping my closet all month (no shopping for me) and I will be wearing/styling a new/different dress every day in June. So welcome by. =)

    Thanks for linking up with me before. Welcome by tomorrow and linkup again. Have a great day! Ada. =)

  16. Pretty little summer dress. A lightweight, chambray dress is on my wish list for this summer too. I really love the pop of color you've incorporated into your look and the shoes need to be worn over and over again.

  18. Gotta love a good find from the archives like your Loft sandals and my belt this week. We rock! I think this dress is absolutely you. I loved Deena's multi-color, pocketed grad dress and it was HER to ME. This chambray is YOU to ME. Perfect fit, just skims your body and shows off your hard work with 21 DF. Love the bright necklace, but your smile and halo of blonde hair are the best!
