WIWW Gray Dress & Beach Day

Linking up for another week of What I Wore Wednesday at The Pleated Poppy!  The weather has been beautiful here in Maine so I whipped out my totes filled with summer clothes and threw on one of my favorite go-to dresses to meet my ladies for lunch:


The dress is from GAP outlet, silver metallic wedges are from Famous Footwear, necklace is from Kohls, and the beautiful teal bag is a gift from my mom!  The company is called Namaste but she purchased it at a trade show in California a few years back so I don't think you can purchase it anymore. Let's hope the weather is warm enough to keep wearing this number all summer long!


Over Memorial Day weekend I went to the ocean for the first time this season...yay! The cover up tunic is from Old Navy a few years back.  It has really pretty silver embroidery at the neckline and sleeves. Sunglasses are also from Old Navy.  It was a little chilly at first but then the sun came out and it was spectacular!

  1. I have a Namaste bag! I love it but the style I have is enormous so I use it for work. Love the silver wedges! All super cute.
