Painted On

                 Plus size blogger, painted dress, nude sandals

Hey y'all!  I can't believe how fast this year is progressing.  Autumn is fast approaching, however the temps in my neck of the woods are still unbearable...ugh!  Welcoming the "dog days of summer", I decided to continue my trend of wearing light breathable fabrics until we can see relief from these high temps here in the south.

I found this beautiful dress at one of my favorite department stores, Ross Dress for Less.  It was super affordable at just $8.99!  When I laid eyes on the beautiful watercolors painted on it, I couldn't help but smile.  This dress has been worn several times over the summer.  I had purchased a similar one, but failed to follow the label instructions on laundering...bummer.  ALL of the colors painted on that dress washed right off.  I was so  Lesson learned, pay attention to label instructions.

For accessories, I kept it simple with a strappy pair of nude thong sandals.  This pair is very inexpensive at $9.99 (y'all know I can't pass up a bargain), and they can be paired with almost EVERYTHING.  Adding a gold toned bracelet and some cute sunglasses completed my look.  I wore it on a weekend doing nothing but relaxing, soaking up some sun and breathing fresh air.

Feeling myself and loving this look.

I'm kinda sad to see summer coming to an end.  However, wearing simple dresses like this will carry me over into autumn without missing a beat.  What has been your go to style this summer?  Share it with me below in the comment section.  Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more inspiration.  Thank you for reading.  Until next time....Stay beautiful and be you!
