Ashley Brooke in Summer Pink Midi Dress from Draper James

Draper James Dress c/o // Margaux Espadrilles c/o // Vintage Quilt (made by my great grandmother, similar here)

Summer Perfection

I don’t know about where y’all are at, but oh my gosh it’s hot here. Like, wow. It’s always hot here (Orlando, FL) in the Summer, but for some reason it always catches me off guard. This year, like most years, I have been LIVING in dresses – literally anything to keep cool.

I shared this smocked dress last week with you, and keeping on that trend, here’s another pretty smocked dress I just can’t seem to stop wearing.

On Weekly Rotation

I wear this dress at least once a week right now. It’s fully lined, has pockets, and the smocking makes it so increadibly comfortable. Plus, it’s just plain pretty. The fit runs pretty true to size to me. I’m wearing a size small and really just wish it came in more colors, because I’d totally stock up!

Also, I love that this dress comes in a few different silhouettes, so if smocking and tied straps aren’t your thing, try this wrap dress or this midi shift dress!

Don’t forget the espadrilles!

If you are looking for a pale pink AND super comfortable pair of espadrilles, these from Margaux are SO GOOD. I have them in the blush pink but they come in a handful of colors. Definitely worth the investment. Marguax has such comfortable shoes. I loathe wearing uncomfortable shoes, but these I could wear all day!

  1. Loveee this dress! I ordered it when you shared it on your stories a couple weeks ago. I love that it works for all heights! I am petite so the tie straps are perfect and the dress is long, but not too long so it works for short people too. Thanks for sharing!! This purchase made me so happy. I think it would be perfect with a leather jacket in the fall too.

  2. This dress is everything!!! Such a beautiful summer dress, and the shoes look so comfy!
    Also your dog is adorable 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Just posted the green version of this dress yesterday and seriously considering ordering this one too! So pretty and love those shoes!
