White Plum Dress, old | Lilly Pulitzer Beau Belt | Bracelets from Buckely London c/o, Lilly Pulitzer

As much as I love it, shopping online has it's downfalls.  One problem that I've encountered more as of late is inconsistent sizing.  This dress had been sitting in my closet for the longest time because it was way too big.  But I just love the embroidery and the beachy vibe, and it's not the kind of dress that I would take to get altered.  I recently brought it out again because I'm doing a bit of closet cleaning, and figured I'd have to find a way to make it work...

When in doubt, wear a belt!

With a belt, this dress fit much better.  I think this is better suited for a coverup so I'll have to take it along when I go to the beach.  I'm still on the lookout for other embroidered pieces (a plus if it's work appropriate!) for the summer if any of you have suggestions!

In other news, I figured I had to get out while the sun was still out.  The weather has been so strange here.  Hope you're having a great week!
