How To Style A Blue Gingham Dress

Now THIS, this is my kind of weather. High 70’s low 80’s. I think this is the kind of weather that all other 49 states think about when they talk about California sunshine. Now if only it could stay like this for a while without going back up again. Since I am honestly loving this weather, I thought it would be a great idea to showcase this dress today. Because everyone needs to know how to style a blue gingham dress. I bought it at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago. I definitely didn’t mind paying $36 for it either. I love snagging great deals. That is why Nordstrom Rack is one of my favorite places to shop.

I am an advocate for buying things that are of a high quality. That being said, I am also an advocate for buying things on sale. So when those two worlds collide, they almost always do so at Nordstrom Rack. If you haven’t shopped there before, I highly recommend it. This Eliza J dress is by far one of my favorites. I love that is has sleeves. I am not a huge fan of my arms so I tend to try to find ways to high them as much as possible. So when I tried this dress on and it fit, it was love.

I added these comfortable sandals in again, yes i’m aware i’ve worn them in the last three posts. They are just too comfortable to not showcase. I have to hand it to Aerosoles, they sure have stepped up their shoe game in the last few years. I used to hate buying their shoes because they didn’t really embody my personality, but now, they are hip, young and pretty darn cute! Don’t forget to grab a purse that offsets the color of the dress. Of course hot pink did the trick!

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and enjoy this cooler weather! God bless!

Like I mentioned in my last post, getting caught up from vacation has been less than easy. I never realize how many projects I am involved in, until I take off work and don’t do any of them. I am happy to be back and already gearing up for another trip coming very soon. While on the East coast, we made it a point to visit as many states as we could. When you’re from California you have to maximize your time. That being said, throughout the vacation we visited 6 states! Can you believe that?? I’ve always wanted to visit Rhode Island and finally I was able to. While we were there we went to Newport to visit the Breakers.

If you aren’t sure what the Breakers are, they are a group of mansions that sit directly on the Atlantic Ocean. They are huge, gorgeous and truly impressive. What I didn’t know is that a college sits right in the neighborhood and used a lot of these mansions as meeting halls. It was truly remarkable to see the Vanderbilt mansion among so many others. Also, it was FREEZING. So if I look incredibly cold, I was. I decided to take the casual approach since I was on vacation and all. I paired my favorite skinny jeans with some knee high boots and a very warm coat. I added an orange scarf and was really glad I did. When we started walking around the mansions I was completely numb. Thank goodness for scarves. So glad I was able to see so many beautiful places.

I hope you all have a great day! God bless!Cursive Signature

How about that weather this week? Is winter already over? I hope not. I haven’t been to the snow enough times to soak it all up. However if the weather is going to get warmer, one of my favorite outfits featuring this gray dress and it’s ready to go. I have to tell you, when I shot this outfit it definitely was NOT warm outside. I was shivering in between shots. My sister, mom and nephew were out there with me and were bundled up beyond belief, as I stood there in a thin dress. Either way, I have to tell you, this has become one of my favorite outfits.

I found this vest at a store in Turlock, CA called 116 Bijou. I have been following them on Instagram for forever but finally made time to stop in. They have such cute items and as soon as I saw this vest, I knew exactly how I wanted to wear it. I added this gray knit dress from Express. I’ve had it for years, however there is just something that made it pair perfectly with this vest. I added my super comfortable brown riding boots and a blue scarf to finish it off. I have already worn this outfit to work quite a few times and have been dying to share it! You can take a look at other ways I wear my favorite brown riding boots, here and here.

I have a texture problem. I don’t like textures that are static clingy, one’s that cling to my curves or whats that make me hot all day. Needless to say this knit dress is none of those things and is great for any occasion. Just don’t stand out in a park in the severe wind, it doesn’t end well, people. My sister and mom got a good laugh though. A huge thanks to my sister who took these photos for me. I’d say she has a future in photography, what do you think?

Hope you all have a great Wednesday! God bless!
