Flower Power 🌸

I guess I forgot to wish you all a happy first day of summer yesterday. I hope everyone is having a good weekend! We’re finally getting some nice weather, and I’m loving it.

Boden just kicked off their summer sale, and you can save up to 50% sitewide! Conveniently, I was planning to share this dress today.

This look is another great example of one & done dressing.

While I love the style of this dress, I have to say, I’m not sure about this print. For some reason, it caught my eye on the website, and it is really cute on, but the floral print could skew a tad matronly.

If you can look past that, the colors and the cut of the dress are really flattering. It also comes in a solid black.

The quality is excellent, and it runs true to size. I have the 8 regular, and it also comes in petite and long sizes.

After I shot this look, I decided I might feel more comfortable in the black, so I ordered that one and shared it in Wednesday’s try-on post. Both are really nice choices.

Because the pattern is so busy, I decided to keep this look simple with nude flat sandals and a neutral tote, and I just wore my pearl earrings with a couple of gold bangles.

For someone who rarely wears dresses, I sure am finding a lot I love this summer!

I do think this one would look better if I had it taken in just a bit through the waist. Otherwise, it’s very easy and carefree, and the black one could easily be dressed up or down for a variety of occasions.
