Karina Pink Floral Dress

IMG_3168

 

Hello Ladies!

Let’s just say Audrey may just be my signature dress from Karina.

This style really appealed to me as I love the colors, the coralish pink, with the blue flowers, and also it was a retro vibe or pattern that I imagined when viewing it on their site. I love flowers, you all know that by now. The cut is flattering for someone like me,  who, according to their site, is considered an inverted triangle, which basically means I am shaped like an ice cream cone. Ha! Just kidding!  In reality, it means I have broader shoulders and the rest of me is narrow. True.  I love the fitted shape up top and the 50s ish vintage inspired flair of the flowy skirt. I can dress this up even more paring it with a white jacket, some espadrille, or if I could wear heels some of those super cute and sexy laced up stilleto heels ( gladiator heels). If I wanted a more vintage vibe, I may put my hair up in a hair wrap, wear some cute pink kitten heels with bows. Speaking of bows, I got these cute baby blue bow earrings from Blogger’s closet. Don’t bloggers have good taste??  When you see this dress, don’t you want to jitterbug or do the swing. If so, listen to one of my favorite bands,  Cherry Poppin Daddies, here.

( By the way, the blanket is there as we had a picnic)

The next style I am looking to try is the Ruby, a sleeveless faux wrap I have been dying to get my hands on. I may go with a neutral pattern, as I think my closet is starting to sprout flowers with my love for florals!

 

Dress: c/o  Karina Dresses ( Audrey), Earrings: Blogger’s Closet, Shoes: Sofft Sandals, handbag: Balenciga ( similar color)

Have a Great Day!

      Thanks Debbie! You will see over the course of my blog how much I like handbags 🙂 Hubby and family bought me a new one for my birthday. It has been a substitution since I can buy many shoes anymore, no high heels… ( I think he secretly wishes I could go back to buying shoes! ) Glad you like the dress too. Have a great weekend, Deb! jess xx

    Floral dresses really suit you so well, Jess! I also think the Ruby will be a great choice as I especially love wrap dresses. A neutral tone is a good idea and can be worn with a blazer or cardigan and boots in the cooler season too.

      Thanks so much Annette. You know I love florals. Yes, I agree about the Ruby! Now, the trick is , is to be able to get the XS in the print I want 🙂 I love this one coppery print they have now. Glad you like it, have a great week Annette! xo
