17 Jul Turning Heads Linkup – Soft Surroundings – Floral Shirt Dress and Floral Sandals
Is there such a thing as too many florals? No! I say! I suppose I am trying to make up some ground as I am not a gardener, like my mom, who has an enviable backyard surrounded by a beautiful garden with flowers surrounding the house. Instead, I have chosen to wear my florals, and today, I am featuring a dress and sandals by Soft Surroundings.
This dress ( The Springtime dress) caught my eye by the color- I could use more blue in my wardrobe and I loved the light turquoise with the bright flowers and butterflies. And it has pockets! I know ladies go crazy over pockets. The material is light and very comfortable, I am wearing a size XS and the hips are quite roomy. When I saw these adorable white floral sandals on the Soft Surrounding site, I thought they were meant for me. I had wanted a pair of neutral dressy block heels and the fact that these are floral makes them that much more appealing to me. I chose the white because it wanted a cute neutral dress sandal to wear throughout the summer and the block heel is 2.5 inches, which is doable! The shoes also come in a cobalt blue.
I knew with the shirt dress style, I would wear this another way. I thought I would style this as a topper, or as an open jacket with all white, perhaps white column style with white trousers or jeans. Stay tuned to see.. as some point! The softness rating is a 2- making it “heavenly soft” and I love that about their items. Hard and scratchy clothing just doesn’t cut it with me! ( lol)
This is a slightly dressier outfit that I am sharing with you, I have shared the more casual look by Soft Surroundings yesterday with the post – Tee Shirt dress and Slides.
I love color as you know, but summer does lend itself to some all white looks or neutrals and I’ll be featuring more of these soon on the blog. So many outfits, so little time!
Since the dress provided a feast for the eyes with all of the bright colors, I went with white for the accessories. These white floral earrings seem to reiterate the flowers of the sandals. My white bucket bag is a favorite to carry.
Hubby and I did the photoshoot on one of the Charlotte greenways. We thought we would venture out from time to time and capture some of the areas around Charlotte we enjoy for the blog. So, we can’t just do a photoshoot and then go home. No, we must find a cool, hip new restaurant in which to have lunch afterward! We visited a new place called “Kid Cashew”, with fabulous summer cocktails and Medditeranean food. We both enjoyed a cucumber basil mule after lunch and it was so refreshing!
Have you ordered from Soft Surroundings? What type of dress do you enjoy wearing for summer?
