As much as I love experimenting with fashion and trying new and different styles, I’ve really found myself reaching for a version of the same outfit lately! I’ve just wanted something cute and easy and summery, and it’s become my uniform of sorts.
My love of smocked dresses is absolutely well documented by now. I love how well they fit me – the smocking makes them extra customized, and because lots of things can be too big on me, this is a great little bonus. I also just think they look really cute when seated – tighter at the chest, but then flows out towards the bottom. It’s really perfect for these days right now when I want something super easy that still looks put together!
This Gap smocked dress (that I now own in three different colors/patterns) is one that I find myself reaching for all the time – the material is just so soft and comfy. I even convinced my mom and sister to buy it after they saw it on me, ha! If you’re into smocked dresses but not this particular smocked dress, I’ve rounded up some other options below (and of course, the Nap Dress is always top on my list – read my review).
I round out the rest of my uniform with some simple accessories. Velcro sandals are one of my favorite finds from this summer – I have always had so much trouble finding sandals that fit well! I couldn’t be happier that brands have started making velcro options that are still stylish and don’t look too sporty. I actually wear these a lot (they’re kids but I think they run pretty big, if you’re a size 5 or 6 in women’s shoes I bet they’d work for you), but I also wear these adult ones a lot too.
Blakbird Jewlery is a local jewelry company, and the owner, Selima, makes the absolute best statement earrings. They’re simple yet chic and powerful, and even better, they’re super lightweight so I can wear them all day without any issues. I bought this mini straw tote at the beginning of the summer and having been taking it almost everywhere! And of course, I’m never without sunglasses – these are my current favorite.
