This is a great dress for those hot days when you wish you could just not wear anything! It’s loose and breezy, but when it’s tied it really shows off one’s shape. The tie is braided yarn, which I think is a really cute touch. I’ve been known to use it to belt some of my other dresses since it has such cute detail – and belts are the best friend of a lady with an hourglass shape!
I really like this dress paired with simple accessories like my Stuart Weitzman wedges and my reversible tote, but it also looks great layered for colder weather. I usually just swap out the wedges for a pair of booties and throw a sweater or a moto jacket on top.
P.S. If you haven’t done a price adjustment for any of your full priced Nordstrom purchases I highly recommend it! These shoes were originally about $150 but I got an adjustment of about $100 since they went on sale within 14 days of my purchase AND they had my size in stock. Woot!
They also do price matching now, which I am stoked about! I just took advantage of this feature recently and I saved a bundle! It’s really easy to do, you just have to call customer service. As long as a competitor offers the same item in the same color/size they’ll match the price. I’ll do a post with that purse soon. It’s my new fav!!
I really like Sanctuary’s dresses (currently coveting this one). They tend to offer cute prints and great shapes. I don’t always love a high-low hem, but with this piece I really do. It flows nicely when I walk, but it does’t drag on the ground since it’s a midi.
Have a good one!
