Gordmans Summer Style and $25 Giveaway

Summer is in full swing, and I want to make sure that I spend every moment I can out and about in the sun. It’s my favorite time of year after all. Always being out can put demands on the wardrobe, but I don’t want to spend every dime I have on new summer clothing. My approach, then, is to purchase a few fresh wardrobe pieces, at affordable prices, that can be styled and restyled.

Off-price stores like Gordmans are must-stops for me. I found this easy, breezy pop dot dress by Kensie at a fraction of its current retail price there. You’ve got to see the slouchy, oversized pockets below. This dress is the perfect piece to just throw on and head out the door.

Since I always have the best luck finding affordable gems in Gordmans, I want you to. Enter below to win a $25 Gordmans gift card.

Hat—Banana Republic Factory Store | similar

Necklaces—J.Crew beaded rope collar (on sale)

This dress originally had short-sleeves, but I cut them off because I like to have my arms out. With or without sleeves, the dress is quite a versatile piece. It can be worn slouchy for a casual day out like I’m wearing it in today’s post. It also looks more polished and chic when belted.

The simple color palette on the dress, navy and white, makes it ideal for mixing and matching. Mix in brights with a necklace like my J.Crew beaded rope collar necklace. Slip on your favorite summer sandals like the J.Crew buckled mid-heel sandals. I have the sandals in black, but the yellow pair would look amazing with the navy and white, right?

Whenever I shop Gordmans, I check for available coupons first. There’s almost always a coupon for an extra 20% off an item, like this exclusive Gordmans July 2015 coupon (valid until July 31).

Striking dot print and perfect color combination aside, this dress has voluminous, drapey pockets. Big pockets! Gotta love pockets, right?
