Beachy elegance

There were just too many adorable dresses at JC Penney for me to only choose one. Floaty chiffon in another (very different!) ikat print was calling to me. If beachy elegance is a thing, this dress is it.

This is unfortunately another one I can't seem to find online, but here is a different cute handkerchief hem dress, and here are some other options by the same brand.

I never would have thought to pair Ikat with leopard print, but I love the combination. This dress would make me want to twirl!

Your JC Penny finds are amazing me! You look great here.

I would have never guessed to pair leopard with that dress. It looks amazing, of course, because you have this magical 6th sense where you just know or something. That dress is elegant indeed, and I love the tassel belt with it!

rlutz said...

Such beautiful colors and pattern. I love that you chose to pair it with the leopard wedges!!

SO far I am so impressed with all of your JCpenney finds! I haven't been there in years, now I am very tempted to go visit the store next time I'm at the mall. This dress is so summery, and I love how you've paired it with the leopard wedges.

I am very impressed with the purchases you made at JCPenney! I haven't been in that store in over 15 years, and I really love the pencil skirt in your last post. I can't believe you got so many things for $100.

hannah said...

You look gorgeous in this outfit! I love how you have picked up on the turquoise in the dress with the clutch and contrasted the leopard with the ikat print. Perfection! x
