Summertime Floral

Hi Everyone!  Hope you had an incredible holiday weekend.  My family did for sure.  We did WAY too much as usual, but loved every minute of it :)  Though I am way ready for Fall/Autumn and more days like today in Cincinnati (75 degrees, light breeze and beautiful sunshine!) I am kind of sad to say goodbye to the summertime.
Today I wanted to do a quick OOTD post.
Dress: Lauren Ralph Lauren wrap dress (similar here (faux wrap style) and here)

I just picked up this fantastic Lauren by Ralph Lauren dress on clearance at Marshall's (LOVE Marshall's!).  It was originally $169 and is one of those pieces I would have actually considered paying that for had I been looking for a great dress for a summer wedding, garden party, etc.and had seen this at Macy's or Nordstrom's (and that is saying alot since I almost never ever buy anything at full price or spend that much on a dress for myself ). I LOVE a great wrap dress and think that they are just flattering on just about any body shape and are so easy to wear.
Lucky for me this one was just hanging around there at Marshall's on the rack and caught my eye (I was in there looking for pillows! ;).  I wandered over to where it was hanging and it had been slashed from Marshall's already discounted $69.99 to only $29.99 (now we are talking!). I grabbed it, tried it on and smiled all the way back to my closet! :)
I can already picture it with boots and a jacket (jean or leather)this fall and have been enjoying it in the last weeks of summer, too. It would also look super cute with some great heels to dress it up a little more. I just love a versatile piece like this and especially one that is so feminine and girlie - I do love "girlie" from time to time. 
Well, I am off to hang some window treatments in the new house. Check back soon as I plan on updating with our big "mudroom" reveal in the next week or so!
