Neutrals + Pretty Things

13 June |

As much as I love bright colors, neutrals have a special place in my heart. Specifically this linen blend peplum dress.  I mean….a peplum dress, WITH pockets! AGH sign. me. up.

You can do so much with a neutral dress. It’s basically like a blank canvas waiting to have pretty things added to it. I decided to go with a creme-jewel necklace and nude pumps. Now that i’m talking about it, that seems so plain. But I really like it all together. There is something clean about nude on nude. It’s kind of like white on white. You can’t do it all the time but it looks good when you do. I think the blonde hair plays to my advantage as well.

So while we were shooting pictures in Downtown Roswell, we stumbled upon this perfect interior design shop called, Linen & Flax. OMG the neutral tones and grey hues in this store! We walked in and I think I died and went to Heaven. {PS if you are looking for rustic lights or chandeliers, you need to check this place out}. They also have these really cool swings that are outside that I now really want to find a place for at our home. I’m sure Chris won’t be as thrilled, but they are beautiful! So we walked in and talked with the owner and had the best few minutes making new friends and learning about downtown Roswell. I can’t wait to bring Chris back to F+L for more inspiration on styling our home.

Okay so back to this pretty dress. I picked up this beauty on the clearance rack at my local BR. I’d been eyeing it since it came out and was surprised to find it on sale so quickly (not that i’m complaining). I bought it at a time they were doing an additional 40% off your purchase…LOVE. If you want me to splurge on something, put a 40% off your purchase sign up in the window. Those signs just call my name. Gosh it’s bad.

Something I love about this dress is the raw edges. Raw edges are starting to make their way back into our closets and i’m not mad about it. This dress is structured but the raw edges makes it so fun. It’s safe to say this is the perfect dress for summer.

What’s your favorite summer staple dress?
