Summer Garden Party // Versatile Summer Dress

Hope all of you had a great weekend!

I’m so excited to share this gorgeous dress with you all today! I don’t know why, but I started calling this dress the ‘Summer Garden Party dress’.

Probably because it would be the perfect dress for a Garden Party but it’s so versatile that it looks amazing with sandals (even flats) for the office, date night, garden wedding and still amazing with slides as a everyday dress. Or for a picnic in the park 😉   The possibilities are endless.


A few other dresses I’m currently loving is this Vintage Floral Sheath Dress , this Floral Sleeveless Shift Dress, this Tie Shoulder Midi dress (how gorgeous is the Sweet Guava color 😍).  And this pretty number will be on the blog soon.

Pair these cute dresses with a  Block Heel Sandal, these adorable bow heel sandals or these super comfy mid heel sandals.

If heels are not your thing these studded slides would pair nicely with any of the dresses I mentioned. These low heel wedge sandals are another cute option.

This dress feels amazing on and if falls so nicely. This type of dress flatters all body types.
I got size 0 in this dress and it’s a great fit (tts for me).

The size of this tote is so perfect – it makes a great everyday tote but also a beach tote. And since I like to keep a pair of slides in my car, it’s nice to pop those in the tote as well for the moments my feet need a break (I was actually carrying my sandals in tote since slides seemed more appropriate for this park).

I realized I need to put a blanket in my car for impromptu stops at the park. Each time I’ve gone to a park to admire everything that’s in bloom, I wished I had a blanket with me just to sit and soak all the beauty Mother Nature is showing off.
Also need a picnic basket –  loving this one, this one and this one (can’t decided which one I like the best. They’re all so different but all cute at the same time).

      Woohoo! Hope you love it! I could wear this one every day (just heads up – it might require a pin or fashion tape for the V part to stay in place when you bend down 😉
