60’s Princess Dress

The fashion lover in me is always interested in see what was fashionable to previous generations. As a millennial with baby boomer parents searching through old family photos isn’t just to take a trip down memory lane. I do it to also get some style inspiration. Recently I came across a few pictures that reminded me of an old dress I haven’t worn in years. It’s this yellow floral 60’s princess dress.

I purchased the dress years ago at H&M. At the time hippie chic was popular. Peasant tops, mod dresses, and embroidery were in every store. I came across this groovy dress and was immediately excited. The floral pattern is totally reminiscent of the 60’s. A dress Daphne from Scooby Doo might have worn on a date with Fred.

What sold me on the dress completely was the bottom half. The princess ruffles are exaggerated by the use of structured tulle and darting. I never have to worry about the dress losing it’s shape. The stretch spandex material is extremely comfortable. Not to mention that’s the only reason I can fit this dress after all these years. It’s one of few dresses I own that allow me to twirl like a ballerina. Perdect with flats during the day or sandals at night.

Floral Skater Dress

So I woke up yesterday and umm, apparently it’s August. Anybody know where the first half of the year went? No seriously – everything is a blur. In any case, we have about six or seven weeks of summer left so let’s make the most of it and have some fun! I plan on hitting up some local ice cream shops to beat the heat and I still have to visit at least one beach before the fall.


While the fall is my absolute favorite time of year I am intentionally trying to enjoy this summer. I’ve even stopped reciting how much I hate the sumer and it’s blistering heat. Rather than be perpetually annoyed at the humidity and the heatwaves, I’ve decided to focus on slaying summer fashion. Yes, I’ve made it my mission to dress happy and therefore, feel happy in this heat.

Today’s look is no exception. A few years back I purchased this skater dress from Daffy’s for about $20 bucks. I absolutely love the fit and the cross back, not to mention the pattern. The red and hot pink poppies stand out against the white base. This little number is perfect with flats and a bolero for day or the heels featured here and a clutch for night.
