Chico’s Henna Stripe Pleated Maxi Dress

July 30, 2017

This weekend I had such a fun time at the blogger event at the Pala Resort and Casino in Southern California!  There will be a post all about that, but in the meantime, let’s talk outfits …

I’m loving this cool henna-inspired pattern on this pretty maxi dress!

style over 40

Dress and earrings were given to me by Chico’s, bag, shoes and sunglasses were given to me by Soft Surroundings … all opinions are my own as always. 

The Dress

I wasn’t sure if this column silhouette was going to work on me, but the pattern and colors on this dress were so pretty that I had to give it a try. And? I loved it!  It felt easy, breezy … perfect for a vacation!  How cute are the braided strap details and the bow in the back?

    Your patterned maxi dress packs some serious summertime gorgeousness in a single piece, dearest Dawn!! And I can only imagine what a blast your “blogger weekend” must have been; one day we’ll have to meet up at one of these events…and squeeze in a bit of shopping, too, naturally!! My hubby and I had a super-busy weekend as well – with a wedding, a visit with his mom, and a Sunday night barbecue all on the agenda!! I just squeaked in under the wire for your Fun Fashion Friday linkup, but I thought I’d comment here instead…just so you know that I didn’t forget you!! XOXO
