Summertime Prints with Julie Brown Designs

Julie Brown Designs Livie Dress

As I said in my Instagram post from yesterday, this weekend can be summarized in two words: vitamin sea. I spent quite a bit of time in the sun, which I have no complaints about. I mentioned previously that I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed with life things, so it was nice to take a step back and enjoy the sunshine with friends who have always felt like family to me.

But, now we’re back to Monday and the usual work grind. Today I’m sharing the perfect outfit to take you from work to happy hour.

I always say that summer especially calls for easy work to play outfits. Happy hour and dinner al fresco are just too good to pass up, so you need to an outfit that you can feel confident walking into the office as well as the bar. And this dress, definitely fits the bill.

In regards to these shoes, they are pretty comfortable for walking around. I am much more of a wedges girl than a high heels girl. While I love a good high heel, I can’t get very far in them. My other trick to go from work to play, is to bring a pair of sandals along. I almost always do this if I know I’m going somewhere after work that I need to walk to. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

I had the pleasure of coming across Julie Brown Designs on Instagram and immediately fell in love with all of the colorful, eye-catching prints. I was also so excited to see some of my favorite bloggers, as well as a few celebrities, wear the brand’s clothing! When I received this dress, I knew this would be a brand that I would want to share with my readers.

A few other favorites from Julie Brown that I’d love to get my hands on are the Hillary Dress, this Sandra Romper (hello, it’s pink), and the Crystal Dress.

Thanks to Julie Brown Designs for gifting me with this dress! As always, all opinions are my own.
