Pink and Orange Dress

Posted by Devin
 
 
This is one of my very favorite dresses. I love how it makes me feel feminine and flirty, yet it's so comfortable and modest at the same time.
 
 
I got this dress when I attended a blogging event for DownEast Basics. If I want a great dress, DownEast is definitely my first stop on my shopping trip. Do you have any of their dresses? If not, you are missing out!
 
 
Since I do love this dress so much, I decided to wear it for Mother's Day, hence my Mother's Day flowers in these pics. I may be old fashioned, but I LOVE getting flowers. I'm a simple girl.
 
 
I paired my dress with some coral wedges that somehow seemed to work with the pink and orange. Maybe because the coral color is somewhere in between the two? I don't know, but I thought it turned out pretty well!
 
 
I also wore my favorite dangly gold earrings that I can't seem to get enough of lately. I always need a pair of go-to earrings in both gold and silver.
 
 
I hope you all had a fantastic Mother's Day!
 
What I Wore:
Dress - DownEast Basics
Shoes - JC Penney

Gorgeous dress! I love the way the cut is to where the stripes are in different directions. I also love the shoes, and your hair is lovely. Mins is that long but because we are getting hot here, I am gettin a bit frizzy. Please stop by

Love the dress! And your shoes go great with it – you're right, I think it's because coral is a mix of the two shades.

I looove this dress - the color and cut are perfect! The only thing I would change if I had to wear this is the length- I'd want it to be about an inch or two above the knee (but that's just cause I'm petite). Aside from that, this looks adorable on you :)

You look stunning. The style and colour of dress suits you so well. You don't often see pink and orange together in a dress. To me coral and orange are so similar I would totally say they go with the dress. I love the photos too with the vintage car.
