Karina Mia & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

May 12, 2016

Introducing Karina Dresses’ new kid on the block, the Mia!  
best dresses, wrinkle free dresses, machine washable dresses
The Mia is a cool kimono style dress. I fell in love with this on trend and colorful ikat print!

Karina Dress, Ikat print dresses
I honestly wear my Karina dresses more than any others in my closet.  Why? Because Karina dresses are always machine washable and wrinkle free, along with being super flattering!  
I accessorized this cool ikat print with a gold collar necklace, neutral wedge sandals, and an orange clutch bag.

Karina has flattering dresses to suit any and every shape.  Be sure to check out their easy to follow guide here to get the best and most flattering fit.

Remember Karina dresses are always made with love in New York.

(Karina gave me this dress to review.  All opinions are my own as always.)
This week’s favs …
Linda of A Labour of Life looks adorable dressed in this pineapple print!

I just adore Andrea’s Trina Turk pants!  (Well, I could be biased since I was there when she bought them!) 
Check out her blog: Andrea Wellness Notes.

Liz of What Lizzy Loves looks lovely in this classy dress!

Sorry I didn’t get around to make many comments last week. I’m all better now and can’t wait to visit everyone and comment!
Link up, link back, and have fun!

    I'm glad that you are all better! Be careful when exercising! 😉

    Fabulous dress! And how great that it is machine washable and wrinkle free! My kind of dress! Fabulous clutch, too! An orange clutch is so great for spring & summer.

    Thanks for featuring me! I'm so glad that I bought the pants. Thanks for encouraging me! 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I'm unfashionably late to the party this week but I'm glad I came. That dress is divine! Perfect for the summer – the kind that is great at the weekend with flats or sneakers but on with the heels and that adorable orange clutch and you can be off for Friday night cocktails!
