Karina Dresses Resort ’18 & Link Up!

January 11, 2018

Even though we’re solidly stuck in winter right now, is it the time of year we start dreaming of spring and many of us head somewhere warm on vacation!  Karina Dresses always comes out with fresh prints this time of year and I always love to see what pretty things they’re offering!

spring prints, Karina Dress review


The Margaret Dress

The Margaret dress is a modest midi length, with a faux wrap and sash.  Like all Karina dresses it’s machine-washable, wrinkle-free, and magically flattering! (Yeah okay, I’m a HUGE fan! Read my last review here.)

This pretty dress with navy and teal polka dots will make you crave some spring weather for sure.  I also love how the dress looks with a little cardigan and a pop of red. I only wish I had a trip planned to go somewhere warm!  The only trip I have planned is to cold New York.  Not that I’m complaining.  It’s fashion week, so well worth braving the frozen tundra!  Though being a California girl, by the end of February, we will have some warm days!

This dress will be a favorite to wear for teaching in spring, I’m sure.  I wear a Karina dress at least once a week.  Why not? They’re comfortable, wrinkle-free, and look great wash after wash.

Check out all the pretty new prints previewing Friday morning!

And hey, Ladies, I’m trying to up my Pinterest game this year.  Anyone else? I’ve had a Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Pinterest board for ages, but only remember to use it occasionally.  Now, that’s going to change!  And I would love to add some collaborators to the board.  If you’re interested, let me know in comments!

    Dawn Lucy that’s such an unusual colour combo (polka dots are normally white, no?!) – I love the two colours together!! Lucky you for getting early warm temperatures… won’t be warm till August in the UK probably!

    Thank you for hosting lovely lady x

    That’s such a beautiful dress and I love the little pop of red with the bag 🙂 I’m sure you will get a lot of wear from it in the warmer weather.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a good week so far, and a lovely start to 2018! We’ve been sick, so not the best start to the year, but it can only get better from here right? haha.

    Wrap styles are always crazy flattering, aren’t they, dearest Dawn?? And I’m absolutely dottie (teehee!) over the colour combination of your newest Karina dress!! It’s a bit unexpected, but navy and teal work wonderfully well together; I wore teal earrings with my navy Christmas outfit and I loved the look!! P.S. You’re going to Fashion Week again?? Oh you lucky lady, you!! XOXO
