The Trend : 

Denim, denim, denim. We are seeing it everywhere this season — denim on denim with a shirt and jeans, and even denim overalls!

However, I am the type that almost always prefers a dress to anything else. So, I decided to try the denim look in dress form. I totally enjoyed the look. It was a great casual option that still left me feeling chic and true to my style preferences. I was surprised in a very good way at just how soft and comfortable this dress is.

Would you like to try the look for yourself? Keep reading… I’ve rounded up some great options for you, as well as details on how to get my look.

Remember: I’m using “reasonably priced” to denote items less than $500 and “inexpensive” for items less than $100. Prices and budgets are such relative, personal issues, but this will at least give you an idea of the options I’m sharing with you. 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this look. Do you love a good comfortable dress as much as I do?

One last tip: Remember this fabulous “Do Not Disturb” hat I posted earlier this year? At the time, it was sold out online. But I’ve now found it in stock! So, I’ve updated this post with details. The punchline is that you can now find that awesome hat in stock here, here, here, and here. Perfect for those upcoming tropical getaways!

Go out and make this a great week!

      Yes, love the Sperry shoes. Bummer, but according to Nordstrom’s this product doesn’t ship outside of the USA. The joys of living in Canada 🙁
