Hi friends! HappyFriday!!! Summer is my absolute favorite season of the year. I think I mentioned that once or twice before. 😉 I love everything about it, including the long summer nights spent with friends and family. I found this adorable Gingham & Ruffles Summer Dress recently and just had to have it. It fits my personal style perfectly. (Currently on sale) It is comfortable, but makes you look put together in an instant. The small gingham print and ruffle details give that little extra something special. It has quickly become a summer stable and I have worn it many times over in several different ways. Btw, the bra I mention in this post is absolutely perfect under dresses and tops like this, where you just need a little support, but not a full blown strapless bra.
Whenever I purchase a piece of clothing, it has to fit certain criteria, before I consider adding it to my closet. It has to be comfortable, timeless and versatile. I try to think of 3 different ways I can wear it and this dress definitely fits the bill. It is great so many different occasions.
My Tory Burch Miller sandals have been on repeat lately, as they are ever summer. They were a great investment – they go with absolutely everything and I have literally worn them hundreds of times from the beach to a nice dinner.
My circle straw bag has been my trustee companion all season long. I honestly didn’t think I was going to get this much use out of it, but it is now my regular purse and I literally have people stop and ask me where I got it. I have gotten more compliments on this bag than any other article of clothing I have ever owned. It is unfortunately sold out again, but I found a super similar one at a great price.

Here are a few ways I have worn it and plan to wear it:
It makes the perfect beach or pool cover up. The fabric is very forgiving and doesn’t really wrinkle, so it was the perfect choice to roll it up in my beach bag. I threw it on over my bathing suit and paired it with gold flip flops and was ready for lunch in an instant.
I also wore it sightseeing recently, paired with some cute white sneakers and a fedora hat. It was a super hot day and the looser fit and lightweight fabric kept me cool and comfortable all day long.
Lastly, we have a causal summer wedding to attend and I plan on wearing this dress with some fun and colorful earrings and pair it with some gold wedges and my gold clutch for the perfect wedding day outfit.
Having a closet full of versatile pieces, like this dress, makes getting dressed so much easier and saves so much time. I also like to invest in timeless and classic pieces that will stand the test of time, and this dress checks of every box on my list. It has been a great addition to my summer wardrobe.
