Walking on Rainbows

Swish! I love swingy dresses, especially this time of year. They’re usually lightweight and breathable. Their voluminous A-line shapes are quite flattering and always exude that “I woke up like this” vibe. And, when they come in a cheery emerald color like today’s featured dress, they’re simply magical.

Dress—℅ Venus

Shoes—Tahari (old) | d’Orsay pump I want

Clutch—Aldo (old) | H&M option

Watch—Michael Kors

Lip—Mac “Heroine” lipstickMac “Heroine” lip pencil

Blush—NYX powder blush in mocha

I was so impressed by the printed dress I received from Venus, a perfect wear-everywhere number, that I couldn’t wait to explore the brand further. That’s when I found this slip on swing dress. It’s available in five colors and in sizes small through extra large—and the best part? The dress is on sale for just $32.

The halter style dress features a wide sash tie and a sexy back baring cut. You’d be happy to know that the dress has pockets too, hidden at the sides.

Picture it. Strolling the beach. Hitting the city pavement. Dancing at an outdoor festival. Shopping at the farmer’s market. This dress is an easy choice during the summer.

Pride Week in St. Louis is huge, especially in my neighborhood, the hippest part of town. The Grove Community Improvement District installed colorful crosswalks at three intersections in The Grove to celebrate Pride. These rainbow crosswalks make walking the area so much more fun. I hope they make them permanent.

    So pretty! And I've admired that beautiful clutch in earlier posts. Love the rainbow crosswalks! They did the same thing in Seattle for the Pride Parade and they are just so cheerful!
