Karina Dresses – Margaret in Sunburst & My Refined Style Link Up!

March 3, 2016

Welcome to our monthly over 40 style link up party!

Can you believe it’s March already?  Hello spring! Well … soon. And I feel every bit ready for it in this bright pretty “sunburst” print from

Karina has recently introduced Margaret, a new dress style that I love! It’s the perfect midi length and has a wrap look (but it’s a faux wrap so you never have to worry about showing too much).

Karina Dresses are a favorite of mine for several reasons.  First of all, the styles are all so classic and pretty.  Also Karina supports body positive images, helping women of all sizes find dresses that flatter their figures. On top of this, Karina dresses are are always high quality, machine washable and wrinkle free!  

Currently I have three Karina dresses … Megan, Audrey and now Margaret. I also have their snug wrap which is great piece for layering.  

The dresses are perfect for work, date night, a party, wedding or church.  They’re always in regular rotation for my job as a high school English teacher.  Karina dresses keep me stylish, comfortable, and wrinkle-free all day long!
