Un-Fussy Paisley.

The last thing I need or want when it is really hot out is a lot of clunky jewelry and unnecessary layers. Actually, I could have worn this Strapless Dress on its own but I tried it layered with a Tank Top underneath. These Seamless Stretch Tank Tops by WHBM - like I showed layered with another dress yesterday, also - are super nice and versatile and wash very well. I have several in Black and several in White. Today I am wearing the Camisole version. They even have them in the built-in bra version but I prefer the regular kind. They are usually on promotion also, at about 25% off each when you buy two or more. Anyway, simple beads and my sunglasses - which do stand out - were all I added to this outfit, which isn't much exciting or really that blog-worthy but it is real life. =)

  1. Cute dress & really love your funky sunnies!! I know what you mean when it's so hot you don't want to layer or put too much fuss into an outfit!! Have a great day Ada!
    Marta, xo

  2. I hear you- when it's hot and/or humid outside, I keep the jewelry to a minimum. As much as I would love to wear my big, chunky statement necklaces, they're just too uncomfy when the temperatures are high! :)

    Love the print here, Ada. Too cute!


  3. What a cute strapless dress and love the sunnies! Love the new header on your blog! ~Cynthia

  4. Hi Ada!

  8. The print of your dress is really fun. I am going to steal your red shades! Those sunglasses are so fun and cool! If you can't them, you know who took them! ;)

  9. I love your printed dress! It is so fun!

  10. You have to love a good cami! I wear one almost every day. Love this dress! It's a great print and length!

  11. That dress has a lovely pattern! And your sunglasses are super fun!

  12. Such a cute pattern on your dress! Printed dresses are nice lightweight options for summer :)

  13. I also don´t wear chunky jewelry nor dress in layers when it´s super hot outside though what you did with the tank top and strapless printed dress is ingenious! I´d defintely wear this combo than wear a strapless bra under anything strapless, hahaha! Lovely look, Ada! :)

  14. Love this oufit, those sunglasses are super fun and very engaging into this dress. I love wearing tons of jewelry all year around when I do. It just makes the outfit more fun, plus fashion always comes with a price sometimes during hot weather, but who cares right? Just wear it like you mean it! :)

  15. Cute dress!!!

  16. Cute dress! Love the pattern and your fun sunnies!


  17. I don't like wearing a lot of chunky jewelry in the summer either, it gets too hot and sticky. I like wearing more dainty or even longer necklaces so they aren't heavy laying on my skin.

  18. I love the print on your dress, and it looks so flirty, floaty and cool! Thanks so much for linking to #AllAboutYou! Hope you're having a great week x

  19. Ps - I usually look at your blog on my iphone, and had never noticed your header before - it's adorable!!
