Coldwater Creek & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

March 10, 2016

How crazy am I over this Floral Batik Maxi Dress from Coldwater Creek?

I’m feeling like a spring goddess in this beautiful flattering dress. I love the mix of fuchsia and poppy shades in the print.  Best of all the fabric is so soft and comfortable.  And this well made dress is machine washable which is always a big plus in my book.
I feel ready for a tropical vacation now.
(Not that I don’t always feel ready for one.)
Haven’t checked out Coldwater Creek for awhile? It’s definitely time to take a peek!

Coldwater Creek sent me this dress to review. All opinions are all my own as always.

I want to thank everyone who took my survey lately. I’ll include it HERE if you missed it.  It only takes a couple of minutes, promise. I’m learning a lot about my audience and I really appreciate the feedback.
Ready for the link up party?
Hey, did you know that even if you’re not a blogger, you can still join the link up fun?!  Share a post from IG like these two lovely ladies did:

Also hashtag your IG posts with #fashionshouldbefun and I’ll pick photos to feature each week!
