Pretty in pleats

Isn’t this dress to die for? Nothing like feeling pretty in pleats. And tiers upon tiers. How fun is this dress? It’s a Lulu’s original but I found it at Nordstrom Rack.

Lulus tiered, pleated midi dress, Nordstrom Rack; Red wedge peep toes, old; Red floral necklace, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, Marshalls; Rose gold sunglasses, Ross.

 

While everyone else was shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I was over at Nordstrom Rack checking out the already reduced prices on all of their clothing items. I’m definitely one for a good deal, and The Rack has way better deals than the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, IMHO.

This dress would be perfect for a summer wedding guest outfit. I felt like I was all dressed up with no fancy event to go to. Instead, we headed out to Hood River for a day trip.

It was a bit windy so I added a top later on, but still, a beautiful day for a drive.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I have been on vacation this week and it has been amazing. Not long enough, though. I think I need to move to Europe where they get month long vacations to our week long ones in the States. Or win the lottery…

Coral pleats and crop tops

Crushing on pleated skirts and lacy puff sleeve crop tops this week. How fun! Both items were found at Ross, so you know they were a good price, too. Plus a bonus peek at how to style a silk scarf.

Polka dot ruched lace top, Ross; coral pleated skirt, Ross; pink scarf, old; colorful handbag, given to me, old; white flats, Ross.

This outfit is so much fun. The colors are bright and cheery despite the fact that we are now heading into our gloomiest time of the year. Bright colors are my jam! It also has a bit of a romantic feel with the long pleated skirt and lacy puff sleeve top.

I started out wearing the scarf around my shoulders, tied at the waist. There was still a bit of a chill in the air. Then I tied it around my waist. At some point I tried tying it around my bun, however, it is so long, that didn’t work as well as it would have with a shorter scarf. Eventually I decided to wear it like a normal scarf.

What are your favorite ways to wear a silk scarf?
