Every once in a while, I get asked this question – “Describe your style in a few words.” If you’ve been following along, it should come as no surprise that my answer always looks something like this: classic, colorful, fun. I can honestly say this sweet shift from Monday Dress (the boutique to Marley Lilly) perfectly embodies each of those three characteristics, does it not?
On the color front, the vibrant orange has my heart. I love the classic silhouette, and think the ruffle and easy-breezy fit make this the ultimate summer frock! The dress (I’m wearing a size small) is actually a few inches longer than it is in these photos. Being 5’2″, I had it hemmed up just a bit, which instantly made it a never-take-off piece. You know, one of those.
In fact, I’ve already worn this number to multiple occasions (including church this past Sunday), since it’s incredibly comfortable and requires no fuss whatsoever. With my favorite pair of white wedges and the precious monogrammed scalloped tote you saw above (hello Kate Spade look-alike at only $40!) you’re set! But leave the peonies in a nice, sturdy vase at home. They are so pretty in pictures, but so not at all practical to carry via purse. And I’m sure that surprises no one, because you are all smart cookies who would never carry fresh flowers in your purse. Because that would be silly.
