This past Fourth of July, we ventured deep into the city for a picnic barbecue at a friend’s home in DC. I’ve had this dress hanging in my closet since I wore it to a Great Gatsby party last year and was determined to get more wear out of it. I paired it with a pretty scarf I found thrifting a few weeks ago and some of my favorite festive jewelry from Swell Caroline, Lilly Pulitzer and Three Jane NY. Even though I was a bit overdressed for my friend’s afternoon barbecue, it was just right for hitting up a few spots in Georgetown after the fireworks ended.
Come fall, I think this dress would look great with a sleek leather jacket and short booties, but I’d love to get a few more wears out of it this summer. How would you still this pretty little thang?
