Fringe Dress

J.Crew Fringe Lace Dress

Happy Friday Eve, friends! One of my favorite things about summer is sundresses. And although I wear dresses year round, there is something about a summer dress that makes it unlike anything else. Add a bright color and fun details and I'm sold.

Our schedule has been packed this spring and summer with events to attend -- and more to come! From graduations, showers and weddings, I knew I was going to need to stock up on some sundresses. When I first spotted THIS dress a few months ago, I wasn't sure where I was going to wear it but I knew I needed it! I actually ordered this citron color and the coral to see what would look best, thinking the coral would be a much better fit with my fair skin and blonde hair. When the package arrived and I saw this citron color, my first reaction was "oh, that's bright!" and considered just leaving it in the box to return. I tried on the coral and it completely washed me out -- I was shocked! I loved the dress so I thought I would give the citron a try, not having very high expectations. Much to my surprise, I loved the super bright hue and it was perfect with my fair skin and light hair! Besides the color, the lace and fringe details and high neckline make this such a unique summer sundress, it was definitely something I couldn't pass up!

I wore this while we were out in Palm Springs and dressed it down with my favorite nude sandals. But, it could easily be dressed up for a fancy occasion, too. And, while we are on the subject of accessories, can you believe these statement earrings are the perfect match for this dress? I purchased them last spring from J.Crew and was so excited to see that they paired so well with this dress. Score for shopping your closet/jewelry box!

I hope you all have a great weekend! My mom and I are hosting a bridal shower for my cousin's fiancĂ©e on Saturday so we are heading to Ohio tomorrow for the celebration. I will be sure to take a few snaps to share with you next week or you can follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy} and Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7}. See you back here on Monday!
