I was all ready to go to the lavender festival this past weekend in my boho embroidered sundress in off white and blue. I’d heard there was a lavender festival going on this past weekend and decided I wasn’t going to miss it this year. Only to discover that all of the lavender farms participating in this festival were not any of the ones near my home. Wah. But, my son remembered seeing one off the Columbia Historic Highway just past Corbett, Oregon, so off we went in search of lavender fields.
I was wearing this cute boho embroidered sundress – perfect for a hot summer day. Not perfect for our next adventure to Larch Mountain, but absolutely wonderful for walking through fields of lavender taking photos.
I got this dress the end of last summer at Hollister. I believe my mom bought it for me. I still hadn’t worn it yet. The fact that it’s backless makes it hard to wear a bra with it, so after I got one of those weird sticky bra things the end of last fall (you can find that item here,) I was ready to wear all of my backless tops and dresses. Only to find it was now way to cold to do so. This year, I’m ready for them, though. Bring on the summer weather!
This dress is an off white cream color lined to just above the knees with gorgeous blue embroidery details on the bodice. Since it was last years style, you probably won’t find it in the store, but here are some others like it. The hat, shoes and earrings are also old, but the sunglasses are new. Similar styles are found in the link below.

Love this wonderful blossom print skirt! The material is a nice high quality satin finish with a half liner underneath. The waist is half elastic which helps it stretch to fit more than one size, but it has a nice side zipper as well. It fit me well – I was a bit concerned it wouldn’t because it was a once size fits all and I have a very small waist size, but the fit was perfect!
The skirt was pretty wrinkled by the time it got here, and I was looking for care instructions on a tag on the clothing, but there were no instructions for care. I cautiously turned the skirt inside out to iron it and put the iron on medium. That didn’t seem to be getting the wrinkles out, so I turned it up just a bit – still ironing on the inside to determine the right temperature to iron the skirt without ruining it. The good news is: once it was ironed, it did not appear to re-wrinkle easily!
I love the colors and pattern on this skirt. It is so feminine and modest without being frumpy. This skirt is just gorgeous! I would highly recommend this product to others buying it.
