Happy Memorial Day Week! I have always loved this holiday, partly because my birthday falls right around the weekend, so I typically enjoy a multi day party. I also love summer and hot weather — so it’s a wonderful opportunity to usher in summer and spend the weekend outside celebrating with friends and family. Today I’m sharing a casual, lightweight weave dress that’s perfect for a warm southern day or summer holiday!
I’m very lucky to be able to rely on the Cloister Collection, a fashion boutique on St. Simon’s Island, to find the perfect outfit for nearly any occasion. They’re always on the hunt for upcoming popular brands, like BCBGMaxaria, Mara Hoffman, Free People, Lilly Pulitzer, Show me your MuMu, AG Jeans and more. The last time I stopped by, I was immediately drawn to BCBG Maxaria’s Vivian dress. This white overlay bodice dress has a provincial burnout print in mesh, and while it appears to be a two piece set, it’s actually one dress with an understated open back. I paired it with flat gold metallic Lilly Pulitzer sandals. Oh, and did I mention that they have pineapples on the heel… how could you not fall in love?! I polished off the look with a beautiful gold oyster necklace from Z.Z. Designs, a mother daughter duo out of North Carolina. I love the fun vibe of this necklace and how it makes me feel like I’m by the sea no matter where I am.
If you’re not a St. Simons Island resident, you can shop the Cloister Collection online or visit their Athens, GA location. Have fun this weekend! I’m hosting friends from my home state of West Virginia, so you can bet I’m counting down the days until they arrive!
