With the temperatures quickly heating up in Florida, I’ve been tempted more than ever to toss on an easy dress and call it a day. While I’m typically a pants girl during the work week, there’s something pretty awesome about a versatile dress that can go from work to weekend, day to night. I unexpectedly saw this dress (for $14.90) at Forever 21 during my visit to find lycra and brights for an 80s party. As I mentioned here, I’ve been so pleasantly surprised by my F21 finds.
Whether it’s from Forever 21 or you elsewhere, a breezy dress like this will easily become a wardrobe staple. For fun, sharing two ways to wear it… standing oh-so naturally in a tree (we couldn’t resist the fun environment!).
For a more casual afternoon, pair your dress with favorite flats or sandals, and layer on a denim jacket for a chillier environment. I’m borrowing my photog, Alissa’s, backpack… while I haven’t been sure about the “trend,” I must confess that with kids, I love how convenient it was to carry and pretty awesome that I’d could pass something like this to my guy. Plus, this one is super cool. #temptation.

To dress up the look, add a crisp white blazer and your favorite espadrilles or heels. I opted for a simple gold necklace and grabbed my reversible tote. Wouldn’t it also be fun with a floral blazer? Or dress it up with a black blazer and skinny heels for a chic date night look.
