How cute is this summer dress! Since I lost a lot of weight, I am in the process of slowly replacing my wardrobe. One of the items I needed was a casual, go-to summer dress I can dress up or down depending on the occasion. I was thrilled when I spotted this dress, which is available in several colors and is under $50. Love that!

There were so many colors to choose from, but I ultimately chose blue because I love blue! This dress has short sleeves and a flattering twist design at the waist. It fits really well, and I found it to be comfortable for day-long wear. I definitely need to snap up another one in a different color!

It was a cool and casual day when I decided to wear my new dress. To keep myself warm, I opted for my trusty denim jacket and for walking, I chose these funky sneakers. This turned out to be a really comfortable outfit! I normally don’t think of wearing a dress as comfy, but this one shattered my preconceived notion! I look forward to wearing it casually this summer, as well as pairing the dress with wedge espadrilles for a dressier look. It will also look cute with sandals, flip flops, and flats. Love!

If you are looking for a casual dress under $50, I highly recommend this one! There are so many colors to choose from!

Wearing: sunglasses / statement earrings / print wrap dress (under $50) / gemstone bracelets (under $50) / pink tote (old, also love this one) / spring nail polish / slingback heels / biker shorts / tank top /

It’s dress season! I wore this wrap dress to a daytime tea event last weekend, and it worked out perfectly! Time got away from me, so I needed to find a dress pronto; this one arrived within 48 hours of me ordering it! Plus, it was under $50. Love that!

While I dressed it up for the event with slingback heels, this affordable summer dress can also be worn with sandals or espadrilles for a casual look in the warm summer months. I’m looking forward to styling it in different ways this season!

How cute is this tote bag? I am very sad that Mansur Gavriel only made it for two seasons. It is a handy tote bag which is strong and can carry a lot inside! I had to carry teacups to the event I attended, so this tote was perfect because I could fit three tea settings inside as well as my wallet, keys, and phone. While this tote isn’t for sale any longer, I did link to one that is equally practical and very cute. Hope you love it if you are in the market for a smaller, workhorse tote.

Wrap dresses can be a pain on windy days, so I always wear biker shorts and a tank top underneath my wrap dress. The day I wore this dress, also happened to be very windy! I was quite thankful for my biker shorts, haha.

Have you ever had to purchase a dress last minute? This is a good one to keep in mind! There are a few additional fabric choices too if this green print isn’t your thing. I am thinking of picking up another one in a different fabric for the summer. This dress is so easy to dress up or down, I love a versatile piece; especially when it is under $50!

Little black dress spring 2022: sunglasses / earrings (old, also love this pair) / little black dress / spring nail polish / cocktail ring / top handle bag / classic black heels /

I finally got to dress up and go somewhere! Yay! Now that the pandemic is behind us, and the local mask mandate has eased, we have been able to enjoy what life was once like. This means formal affairs have returned!

Since I lost roughly forty pounds last year, none of my formal go-to dresses fit anymore. So, I had a good excuse to invest in one fabulous little black dress! Love that!

This little black dress was perfect for the event I went to, which was to honor my senior daughter and the work she has done in the community over the course of her high school career. Parents wore black, while daughters wore white, in order to ensure our daughters could shine. This dress code worked out perfectly since I firmly believe every woman should own at least one fabulous little black dress. You never know when you need a go-to dress last minute which can be worn for a cocktail event, or something more formal. Of course, it cannot work for black tie when dresses should be long, but it does work for most formal or dressy affairs. Love!

halibut Corinthian ballroom san jose

The event was held at the Corinthian Grand Ballroom in downtown San Jose. I was thrilled to find out how delicious the food at the venue was that evening! I enjoyed this halibut dish, which was so yummy, I cleaned my plate; even though, according to etiquette, you are supposed to leave a couple bites on the plate. I couldn’t help myself; this was delicious! Don’t worry, I didn’t scrape, and I did leave some asparagus, I’m not big on asparagus. haha

I am looking forward to future events where I can wear this little black dress again. It looks great with a classic Chanel bag or spiced up with a brightly colored bag and/or shoes. As you know, the little black dress gives you endless possibilities!
