The Perfect Beach Dress

Free People dress // Steve Madden sandals // similar sunglasses

Happy Saturday, friends! Sorry I have been a little MIA this week on the blog… Chris and I have been at the beach this past week with Kennedy and it has been such a treat, but also hard to get stuff done! I have been living in lounge sets and easy breezy dresses at the beach, and this Free People dress is one of my favorites! I love the bright gingham pattern with pretty oranges and purples – makes it easy to fit in with all the pretty, colorful houses down here. It’s a super light, soft material and I like how the back is longer than the front! I’m rounding up a bunch more Free People dresses in the “Shop the Post” widget below.

What are y’all’s plans for this Saturday? Chris is off work today so we are going to pick up bagels and then we’re headed straight to the beach!!

    How do you feel about the sandals? Are they kinda narrow? It’s hard for me to know if Steve Madden shoes will fit, specifically sandals. Some are too narrow and some fit perfect.

    Dear Caitlin,
    I don’t know what to say… You spread with this dress a breeze of freshness and a feeling of ecstasy that are felt from Paris. <3

  4. This is a beautiful dress! I love the print but mostly how flowy it is. Enjoy your time at the beach!

  5. I love Free People so much! So glad that Nordstrom carries this brand. Your shoes are really pretty, too! I could use an updated pair of sandals. Are they really comfortable to wear throughout the day?

    I hope you and your family had the best time at the beach! 🙂


  6. This dress is so cute!!

  7. In Poland you will hear that pretty girl looks pretty in everything, and I have to agree with that!

    Cheers from Poland❤

  8. Hi Caitlin

    I have always really admired your style aesthetic it so effortless yet stylish :)…so inspirational.

    I am loving your take on the classic gingham trend with the use of silver accents in shoes and bangles.

    Sending positive vibes from Europe 🙂
