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.

  14. 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!
