Embroidered Shift Dress

Seattle has been unusually hot these past few days, and in the midst of this impromptu heat wave I find myself enthusiastically celebrating an excuse to finally wear summer dresses. This embroidered shift dress from Anthropologie is my favorite dress because it has a vintage flair while still remaining feminine and elegant. 

I never thought I could pull off shift dresses due to the fact that I normally find them tight and baggy in all of the wrong places. Yet mysteriously, this dress fits like a dream. Anthropologie works their magic once again!

The embroidery makes enough of a statement so that accessorizing proves simple and painless. I added a little embellishment with my favorite J.Crew bracelet, gladiator wedges, and my signature Marc Jacobs tote.

I wore this outfit to a lovely lunch with my dear friend Annalise of (anna) la mode, where I indulged on a frozen mojito and a delicious Santa Fe chicken salad from Earl's in Bellevue. Yum.

A big thanks to Annalise for being my photographer for the day! (If you haven't checked out her blog yet, you should. She is hands-down my most fashionable friend, so it goes without saying that her blog is amazing!)
