Eyelet Dress collection – cute spring and summer dresses 2013

Many of the eyelet dress outfits that caught my eye recently have been white eyelet dresses paired with jean jackets. Others were bright colors or navy. I’ve managed to round up quite a few for you &  included both inspiration as well as links to a lot of dresses available for the Spring & Summer 2013 season. 🙂

The evasive eyelet dress but too cute not to mention:

Shireen-Eyelet-Dress-from-Calypso-Celle

Shireen Eyelet Dress from Calypso Celle: This dress just kept popping up on Pinterest. Repeatedly. In different colors. And it’s really cute. Too bad the seller, http://calypso-celle.com,  doesn’t seem to exist anymore. Link included just in case they somehow come back online (though I don’t think I would trust an ecommerce site that’s been done as long as this one has….)

But maybe you could find it in a boutique … it looks like they sell to small stores based on this photo. Really this is my favorite of the dresses which makes it really frustrating.

Anyway – hopefully this gives you some outfit ideas and also helps you find some of the available options for eyelet dresses this Summer 2013!

Mud Pie –
Navy Geo Mod Tie Tank Dress

This is one of the other items I picked up at Blooming Boutique in Rehoboth Beach DE in early August. Mud Pie Navy Geo Mod Tie Tank Dress (#810232S)

It’s a really nice versatile dress. Easy to wear because it’s stretchy and it can be dressed up with the right shoes and a cardigan but it’s also very comfortable and casual enough to, if you wanted to, wear it as a beach coverup.

I actually tried this on early in the week, liked it but didn’t know if I really needed a dress but then ended up spending the week looking at other dresses and comparing it to this one. So I finally went back and bought it (though it took me a bit to figure out where I had tried it on at.)

I have worn this with the navy wedge sandals I got at Payless and a white cardigan to a meeting. The ends of the ties have little gold metal toggles.

The only thing I wish were a little different were the cut in the back on the shoulders, it could be a little wider to more easily cover regular bra straps. Would be better with a racerback bra (or again, cover with a cardigan if you’re worried.) 

 

Again with the preppy pattern, it reminds me a bit of the greek key pattern.
REALLY really happy with this purchase.

Odd N Ends

Neon and chevron nail polish

First attempt at chevron and neon nails.

"And go and get yourself some cheap sunglasses"

“and go and get yourself some cheap sunglasses…” I scratch my old sunglasses and needed some new. The kiosk mirrors were horrible so I was taking photos with my phone to get a better look.

Blue dress Kohl's

Yeah the dresses are not working … was trying to find a dress for a wedding. I ended up wearing a skirt instead (it was a bajillion degrees, people were in all manner of dress.) It didn’t help that when I was trying on dresses I had been bitten by something (I think spider) and had a reaction that included mild systemic inflammation. I felt a good 10lbs heavier and poofy. :/

Black dress Talbot's Outlet

If this hadn’t been black I would have bought it. Perfect for hot weather, cute (cuter than in the photo) but not a wedding guest dress. Not in KY, not in the daytime.I feel like a sausage - talbot's outlet

Talbot’s outlet. Felt like a sausage in this.

burgundy shirt talbot's

Cute but too “fall”… also not what I was shopping for.

Moved on to shoes.

Brown wedges

 Cute but not quite. (Marshall’s)

Tan wedges

Better but wanted a little darker… these are cute however and I might go back.

Nautical wedges TJ Maxx

LOVED these navy nautical wedges but they got veto’d for a wedding. A little over the top. I was already wearing neon nail polish. TJ Maxx so close.

Then JACKPOT – Payless Shoes (again somehow)

Saddle Brown Riviera Payless Shoes Saddle Brown sandals - Payless Shoes - Riveira

Payless Shoes white wedge - Twain wedge Navy Wedge Payless Shoes - Vander Band Wedge

 Top: Riveira in saddle
LOVE these sandals and the fact that they can be worn two ways.

Bottom Left: Twain wedge in white

Bottom Right: Vander Band Wedge in Navy

All three purchased, all three are Montego Bay Club brand.

And finally, what I wore to the wedding.
