Turning Heads Linkup -Karina Dresses – The Abigial Dress in Waves

Well, I had planned this post for Friday, but everything has been a bit topsy-turvy with the way things are going in life. I am sharing a new print and cut from Karina Dresses today. I have been working with them for 3 years and am a big fan of their dresses and I will tell you why.

Mother’s Day Weekend

The weekend was quite chilly here and I finally got my Lou & Grey joggers, after 3 weeks. I mostly stayed cozy over the weekend, with the exception of dressing up for Mother’s Day.

Hubby and I work from home normally, so we sleep in until 9. I woke up early around 7, ( still not as early as when I used to teach and wake up at 5:30 am!) and got ready to get dressed for our Video Mother’s Day chat with my siblings and Mom. After a few technical difficulties, we all wished Mom a Happy Mother’s Day and chatted a bit together. It was a lot of fun. My brother played the video we made for Mother’s Day and my mom truly enjoyed it, as my sis and I got a bit teary- eyed. She loved the gifts and was wearing the Hakuna Matata shirt we sent. We are going to get together for a Happy Hour later this week.


Why Karina Dresses?

They have wonderful cuts and styles of dress for every body type and are great for travel or the office as well. They don’t wrinkle!

These dresses are great to improve your mood, with an easy knit fabric and comfortable style. One and done. Especially nowadays!

This longer midi style, the Abigail in Waves, is anew style and print from Karina Dresses. I added my turquoise earrings gifted from Chicos, my favorite sea- green metal bracelet gifted from Uncommon Goods, and a peach floral necklace, picking up the colors in the dress.

The neutral Chinese Laundry are worn once again to keep a neutral shoe, and my Zara bucket bag in off white is styled.  as the rest of the look is colorful.

This dress is c/o gifted via Karina Dresses. All thoughts and opinions are mine and truthful. I have worked with Karina Dresses for 3+ years and love the company.

    I love that print and style, Jess! SO fresh and summery! That’s a great new style from Karina and I like it a lot. And perfect jewelry, of course. It sounds like you and your siblings are doing your mom proud. Good job!

      Thank you Darlene! I do love the print. I dont have many stripes in my closet so this variation is certainly welcome! She loved the video we made for her and we had a fun chat! It went well.

    You are a queen of dresses, Jess 🙂 This one is another great choice. Love the wave print, it creates such an interesting effect and gives your body a sense of fluidity. I like the fact that your accessories are not from the same set

    The no wrinkle part is ideal for sure Jess!! I used to have one but purged it when we moved. I’ll have to get another one.

    Oh good, I’m glad you got a pair of Lou & Grey sweats—I have some and they are by far the comfiest pants I own! Can’t wait to see how you style them 😉

    I’m seriously loving the wavy stripes here! They are so much more flattering and forgiving that just vertical stripes and can help hide those lumps and bumps that many of us have after kids! The colors are beautiful too!

    The cut of that dress is so flattering on you! I love the print!

    The waves on this dress go so well with your wavy hair! I’m really liking that bucket bag, too. Hmm, may have to keep on the lookout for one.

    Thank you Jess – it’s never occurred to me to wear toning (rather than matching) earrings and necklace (I’m too matchy matchy!)
    Kind regards
