The Blue Dress

A simple, classic summer dress is a must have in my book.

Dress: Banana Republic Outlet (similar, similar, similar)
Jewelry: Watch, Target; Necklace, Elisabeth Ashlie; Bangle, Sak’s off 5th
Wedges: Gap Outlet(similar)
Bag: Kate Spade Outlet, winter 2011
This blue dress does something when you put it on. It gives confidence and comfort. It’s the kind of dress that doesn’t require any other clothing items, like a camisole underneath. Or a sweater. Although spanx aren’t a bad idea. Just trust me on that one.
I love the vibrant color, and the fact that it has sleeves. I love a dress with sleeves
Mixed with wedges and a creamy white bag–it’s perfect for a summer day.
Keep the jewelry simple, especially around the neckline. I wore a delicate necklace, that I made. You can find them here.

    Love the look; love your blog! Suggestion: to change it up, swap out matching belt with a fun thick or even a skinny belt in an unexpected pop of color.

    Kate I love your blog and your style but I have to say… The “similar” options are not similar at all. I want this dress so bad.

    I tried this dress on, and wanted sooo badly for it to be flattering… let’s just say, it was meant for you (and not me!) :)

    I’m completely in love with blue & off-white this season :) Very cute outfit!

    I am sitting at my desk in a simple, black dress, almost identical to yours but with shorter sleeves, LOVE IT. Just like you said, I feel dressier, feminine and cool, as in temperature :) You look lovely in the blue !

    I so love this dress! I need to remember how blue brings out the blue in my eyes – I always go safe with black or brown:) Thanks for the inspiration, and as always, you are beautiful!

    You must not sweat hardly…i unfortunately =( could never pull of this outfit because there would be puddles lol.
    However i can still appreciate the cuteness and AWESOMENESS that it is. :)
