Simplified Style...Pretty Little Dresses

Pretty Little Dresses...I love them. They bring to mind images of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O., Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor. A time of glamour and ultimate femininity for desire to *borrow from the boys*, but to simply embrace the joy of being a girl, and all that goes with it.

I personally love wearing dresses...they make me feel extra feminine and girly. In most cases (depending on the dress) they can be just as comfortable as wearing pants or jeans, too. It's really just a matter of getting used to wearing them on a regular basis, IMO. :)

Fortunately today there are many retailers offering pretty little dresses for those of us who do still love them and want to wear them. They range from day dresses, to party dresses, to maxidresses, and at all different price ranges, so if you're looking for one, there are many to choose from.

Take a peek at personal picks...

How do you feel about dresses? Do you wear them often? Have you found any lately that you absolutely adore? I'd love to hear your thoughts...


  1. Hi Melissa, I hope you are enjoying your time with your parents. Thanks for the info on the Rag & Bone sandals; still a bit pricey (would like it better if they were under $150). Unfortunately they are no longer available in my size. I really like the Peter Som for Kohl's dresses. I also love the 1st dress on the list; pretty color & print. Take care! Hugs, Dawn

    1. Hi Dawn! We are having a really wonderful time with my parents. It has been so good to spend time with them after being apart for several months.

      I would keep an eye out for the Rag & Bone sandals to pop back at Nordstrom in your size. I know that things show up on a regular basis that were sold out previously. I usually add the item to my cart, and then check on it daily to see if it shows back up again. Who knows...maybe you will catch them in your size and at a lower price. :)

      Have a lovely weekend! :)

  2. Lovely images in this post! I've been wearing my Tory Burch dresses with Brora cardigans every day, my favourite easy outfit. I'll check out your links! Hope you're well Melissa.xo

    1. Thanks Dani! I love the dress/cardigan feminine and pretty!

      It's finally getting warm enough here to wear my maxi dresses and my newest found love...the maxi skirt. This fall/winter will be my first experience at trying to stay warm while wearing a dress. I'll be looking to you for some tips! :)
