Little Blue Dress

I think I need more light blue in my life!! I’m loving how this blue dress looks with my dark hair. Usually, lighter colors just make me looked washed out because my fair skin looks like it could glow in the dark (😂), but the light blue seems to work.

This dress is from Draper James’ most recent collection. I am totally in love with it. I went to their fall press preview last week. While it’s very hard to look at fall clothes when we’re just now sort-of-kind-of-maybe getting summer weather, the upcoming fall line looks so good. Lots of navy pieces and even some pink and maroon hues perfect for autumn.

I rarely go to press previews anymore but I always try to make it to the Draper James ones because I end up seeing a ton of my friends (from the brand, the PR team, and other bloggers). Nearly everyone from the DJ team was wearing a cute dress from the summer collection, sneakers, and a denim jacket. Pretty much like a uniform. Although I wore espadrilles, I did have on a denim jacket at the event so I fit right in!!

I mostly wear stud earrings but I thought these pearl tassel earrings added a fun pop. They’re slightly on the heavier side so I wouldn’t plan on wearing them all day, but definitely a fun option to wear to an event.

Every time I see a blogger who doesn’t live in the south talk about how excited they are for warmer weather right now, I question why I live in the south. The high here in Tennessee today is 93! It’s not even technically summer, and it’s already too hot to try to dress cute in summer clothes.


They run slightly big- they should be tight when you first get them because the DO stretch out!


This is so pretty!! I love the summer Draper James collection! I have had my eye on the striped shirt dress. So pretty, and classic. You got me excited for the fall line!

Look at your arm in the third to last picture! Are you suggesting that hasn’t been digitally altered in any way? C’mon Carly.


As I said, it has not been altered and I do not practice that with ANY of my photos

Love this color and those earrings are such a fun addition. I have always loved Draper James and their classic and feminine pieces. I have the “Totes Y’all” bag that is now discontinued and I get more compliments on it than anything else in my wardrobe probably. Great post Carly!
