Raspberry Swing Dress, a la Americana.

Happy Monday you all!
I know I am behind posting all of my dresses for this month, but with a few two-fer posts and remixing posts, we will get to all 30 dresses for June, I promise. Week one of dresses (recap, at the very bottom of this post) was all about lace, eyelet and crochet dresses as all these materials and textures are perfect for Summer. Week two - starting today - is all about Bright-Colored Dresses. A colorful dress, or a bright dress is a great option to wear for Summer, no matter where you may have to go. From casual every day looks, to the office, cocktail parties, the beach, date nights, BBQs, showers and even weddings. A bright dress makes you noticed in a good way. I am starting this second week with a Raspberry Red little Swing Dress.

Vivian is back with mommy today dressed really casually (both of us), looking very Patriotic and Americana in our Red, White and Navy Outfits. We wore these outfits during our relaxing Monday off for Memorial Day. Vivian's outfit is very Americana (I just love her cute stars+stripes tank), while I am still patriotic but in a subtle way. I just love my new Swing Dress. As you all know I am a huge fan of red and this raspberry shade of red, is delightful. The dress is made of a gauze light material, in the popular and casual-chic swing style that is flattering on everyone and better yet it has cute white embroidered flowers on it. I styled it simply with my Navy Rubber Flip-Flops by Old Navy and dressed it up a tiny bit with Silver Crystals: Pave Necklace and Dangly Long Earrings. Simple, comfortable and still put together, no?

Stars, Stripes, Red Bows and Peppa Pig with Suzy Sheep. In less words: Vivian looking Adorable!

Here are the 6 dresses and 7 outfits I wore during the first week of June 2016 for this month of Dresses. Which 2-3 dresses are your favorites? Which one is your favorite style? My top 3 in no particular order are the LBD in the daytime sporty outfit, the Merlot Dress with the Laceup Nude Sandals and the LWD with the Nude Wedges.

For your inspiration, last week I also shared this post featuring pretty lace and eyelet dresses worn by you, so go see some of the best-dressed bloggers!
Last but not least, if you missed this post over the weekend, I am sharing the 5 best gifts (in my opinion) for dads. I love them all but I have a couple of favorites. So, take a peek at any or all of the posts you may have missed from me, this month. Thanks.

Have a great week ahead, everyone!

  17. Cute, cute, cute! I just love patriotic colors and they look even cuter on you and Viv! I love the idea of 30 days of dresses... I don't have 30 dresses, but could probably style them different ways to come up with 30 different looks. What a fun series! And, red is so your color!
