a simple navy dress (+ a giveaway)


dress: Target, shoes: Gap outlet (old), similar, jewelry: Lisa Leonard
I’ve talked about my love for dresses with sleeves enough that this dress shouldn’t be a surprise to you. It also shouldn’t surprise you that it’s from Target. It’s comfortable, casual and with a little accessorizing can be a simple outfit for any day of the week.

Since the moment I received this necklace in the mail, I’ve been wearing it almost daily. It’s delicate, long, and the pink quartz seem to go with just about everything I own. I’ve also been loving the simplicity of the gold chevron necklace. Perfect for layering or wearing by itself. 

Both of the necklaces I’m wearing above are from Lisa Leonard, and today you have the chance to win a $50.00 gift card! Lisa Leonard is giving away TWO $50.00 gift cards, and all you need to do is enter using the giveaway tool below.

    It might be simple dress but here we say “less is more” and this is a very elegant dress that depending on the shoes & complements you wear it’s suitable for many different occasions

    How come I just bought this in orange/coral solid and immediately thought of you. I guess I wanted to a combination of this dress and your JCrew dress. I love your blog and I have to tell you, you have inspired me to…comb my hair…Thank you & God Bless!

    I love this dress. It’s so summery and cute! You look adorable!!! I would love to help anyone that is looking to get fit for the summer and ROCK this dress. It’s SO cute!

    Fits like a glove, I would however recommend you get loops sewn into the sides to hold the sash in place. The loops they have are very flimsy and I broke one before I even got the dress to the cleaners.
