Turning Heads Linkup-Bright Colors High Low Dress


I just wanted to let you know that I have posted about PART 2 of My Savannah Trip, on Friday, so if you would like to check out Tybee Beach, you can!

Ill be keeping it a bit shorter today, as I have found myself having some sleepness nights due to what may be carpal tunnel, or EDS forearm/shoulder pain. It is chronic and I will have to see an orthopedist who may be able to help.

In this heat, there is only so much a girl can do! July in the South. Whew! I would have to say this is a tough time to take blog pictures as you are trying not to show sweat stains, and you hope your hair won’t fall in the first 10 minutes! It is up yet again, as I am not a fan of having my hair down in 100 degree temps.

I bought this dress last year, and the colors are what spoke to me. I remember as a kid, not liking orange, associating it with Halloween or pumpkins. This bright sunny dress is fun to wear with its paisley pattern and the colors from the Pantone Instititute 2017. Heat ( orange),  Primrose yellow, and Greenery all make this dress a bright and sunny combination for the summer months.

That and the high low hem! Why not wear one to show off those new sandals you got this year? I had been admiring these cognac leather sandals from Franco Sarto on Nordstrom for months,  but really didn’t want to pay full price. Amazon to the rescue, as I scored this pair for $30! It does pay to wait until the end of season sometimes.

The various shades of orange and yellow remind me of the summer heat, so I styled this dress with my gold medallian style necklace from Sylca Jewelry.

This natural straw bag from MANGO is getting a lot of play this summer!

I love this style shoe- almost like a boot- and this color goes with so much in my wardrobe. They are also very cushioned and comfortable, which is a must.

Charming Charlies comes through with these fun orange chandelier earrings.

Remember, if you are not comfortable, with a high low dress, there are many maxi dresses out there for every shape!

*****If you didn’t see the rest of my SAVANNAH TRIP,  My post on Friday, SAVANNAH PART II,  shared our visit to TYBEE ISLAND AND THE BEACH. ******

    Jess, despite the heat, you look fabulous in those colors and the high-low hem is very flattering on you. I’m quite fond of hemline variety like high-low and sharkbite because why should the neckline get all the glory. Thank you for sharing your post on my Fine-Whatever link up.

    Jess, another fabulous outfit! This dress is stunning and the colors are so brilliant! Your accessories are so fabulous, too, as usual! I don’t think I could handle winter in the south, so I certainly couldn’t handle the summer heat! I feel so fortunate that we have only had about 3 days this entire summer where the temperatures have broken 80 degrees! We have been holding steading in the 70’s which is fine by me!

    High low and paisley – definitely a winning combination! I’ve loved high low ever since I first saw this style and have several high low dresses and tops. You look elegant Jess! Sorry to hear about your pain and hope you’re able to get help.
