Pretty Pink Crochet and JC Penney Dresses.

4 Summers ago I did a lot of Dress Shopping since I could use a few new dresses. I had several showers to go to, 4 weddings, some bachelorette and engagement parties. I happened to wander into JC Penney's and to my nice surprise, they had a ton of dresses on sale. They were a little messy and disorganized though. But I had time so I dug through the racks and found about 5 or 6 dresses I loved, including the Hot Pink one from today. Between the perfect knee-length, comfortable and almost wrinkle-free jersey fabric, pockets, flattering waves on the neckline and super fun back which is crocheted in a diamond pattern with the whole middle part embroidered with silver flat beads - seriously what's not to love? I remember this pretty dress was under 30 bucks. Last week on a super hot day while I went to meet my cousin and his girlfriend (with Vivian in tow) for a frozen yougurt and then for a pizza lunch, this is what I wore. I paired it with this Summer's Favorite Sandals - my Kelly Green ones and a Neon Flower Statement Necklace plus a couple of Bracelets and I was done.
JC Penney has a lot of pretty dresses this year also. You can see Elle wearing hers here for two different dressy occasions. I love the striped one she wore. Elle is currently doing a giveaway for a $100.00 gift card to JC Penney's and of course I entered it. Hopefully I win so I can buy more pretty dresses... duh. Especially since a lot of the Spring and Summer styles are currently on sale. I could use a couple of maxi dresses, myself. What about you?

Dainty Gold-tone Earrings w/ Cubic Crystal, 4-Colored Stones: Fred's Jewelry (similar by Givenchy, fantastic deal, love these), (gorgeous option by Swarovski, great deal), (similar by Bebe, best deal, love these).
Bright, Kelly Green Strappy Sandals: Simple Shoes (New) (similar, trendy option), (similar, love this), (dressy stiletto option by Guess, love this).

Last Summer I wore another Hot Pink Dress from JC Penney's in a casual way, like I did today. Both today's dress and the dress below have a beautiful neckline and silver details. They are definitely more on the dressy side. As you see from this post, I have worn them casually on the blog. I have actually worn each in a more fancy way and with heels, including the dress below to a wedding (though not shown on the blog).

I am Linking up with Carrie, Casey and Whitney for "Create 28 Lovely Summer Looks" - Statement Necklaces. I am linking up with Laura and Erin for "Trend Spin Weekly" - Favorite Summer Dresses. I am also linking up with the ladies of "My Wardrobe Panorama" - My Summer Go-to Style. In the Summer my Style is definitely a dress - God knows I own a ton of them and I wear them a lot, followed closely by shorts paired with a tank or tee.

  10. This dress is summer-perfection and that detail on the back is really pretty! You look like you have a nice summer tan going, too. Those green sandals add a beautiful pop of color to the pink, too! So pretty! I have seen several bloggers have been doing $100 JCP gift card giveaways, I hope I win one! Altho, I do have to agree their stores are sometime messy and a little unorganized.
