Boho Embroidered Summer Sundress

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.

Asymmetrical black and white dress – #fashionfriday

So loving this Asymmetrical black and white sundress! This item was a one size fits all item that really did actually fit me well. I’m so excited when that happens!

Made of a lightweight nylon material, it only had light wrinkles on it. The white edging seemed to be where most of the wrinkles were. No care instructions were on this item, so I carefully ironed it inside out with the heat turned to just above medium. Since the dress is a bit thin, I did have on my seamless underwear, but wasn’t thinking about that when I put on my low back bra. The bottom edge of that was showing a bit depending on how I was standing, and I didn’t even realize it until I saw the photos later on.

It was a bit windy when I went out in this dress, and all I can say is: What a fun dress! The back billows and blows out behind you if you can catch the wind just right. So, of course, I was trying to catch the wind ‘just so’ in hopes of getting the dress to fly out behind me. I’m sure if it was a super blustery day, you’d have to watch out for it flying up too high, but I didn’t have that problem at all when I wore it.
