Parrots and Peplums on Fabulous Friday

Happy Friday friends! I’m straying from my normal Friday Favorites this week and teaming up with Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots for her Fabulous Friday Link Up. I have to tell you, I’m both excited and nervous as this is my first gig as a co-host. Jennie has such a fun blog and also a really fun sense of style, and expressing herself through that. Thanks Jennie for allowing me to post along side of you.

I’ve been on a bit of a dress hunt here of late with all the wedding events our family has coming up. During one of the most recent LOFT sales, I ordered quite a few dresses and shared them in a Loft try on session post last week. I saved this little red cutie for a solo post though and so it worked out perfectly for today and it’s currently 30% off.

I love an easy, breezy, non-confining dress and this one falls perfectly into that category. I typically don’t wear red, but this dress is so cute I couldn’t resist. I love the split neckline and ruffle hem and well, the parrots on it are just so stinkin’ fun! Strappy sandals are perfect for a dressier look, but this dress can also be dressed down a little too for a more casual occasion.

The dress itself has so much personality that accessories can be kept at a minimum. I chose to go with bigger earrings and a petite necklace. These earrings are some of my most worn next to my Nickel & Suede earrings that I just adore. {Which by the way, Nickel & Suede is having a site wide sale for 15% off this weekend to help you get ready for Mother’s Day.} These earrings from BaubleBar are currently on sale for less than half price and would look super cute with this dress too.

For a more casual look I tried it on with my favorite wedges (that are really so comfortable) and added my go to jean jacket.  This was one of the looks I was thinking about for the bridal shower last weekend, but I held it back in case I want it for one of the days the weekend of the wedding. Do you do that? Hold onto stuff for the future instead of wearing it right away?

My favorite look from last weeks linkup was Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine. Andrea is one of my blogging soul sisters, and we share a love for so many things including this adorable floral jumpsuit. I’ve been trying to find the perfect jumpsuit and after seeing how darling this looked on Andrea, I headed straight for Target, but alas they didn’t have my size. Stop by Andrea’s blog and say hey…tell her Lisa sent you.😉
