Shopping trip to Cost Plus World Market....
So many favorite things!
So this dress.
Doesn't it just scream backyard Barbecue, bandannas,
America and lot's of red, white and blue?
Yes, I totally think so. I'm really not that big on dresses. Okay, I love pants and abhor dresses. But every once in a while I see a dress I'd actually like and would wear!
This is one of them.
Love the sleeves, so forgiving on many body types because it's so flattering and forgiving.
I also love the pattern and definitely see this being worn on a casual patio dinner night out, date night having chicken fried steak or burgers and fries... maybe going to see your grandma on a Sunday after church and having pound cake and whipped cream or ice cream... it evokes the possibility of great summer memories and don't forget 4th of July and watching fireworks with your hubby, family or girlfriends. This dress is a cutie.
So many hats to choose from... all great summer options to keep the sun off your face!
Another great dress pictured, this one with a v neck style and spaghetti straps, an interesting print and an awesomely different hemline. I like this because it's so unexpected and different from everything else out there... I'd throw a jean jacket on over it and wear sandals.
Love, love, love these breezy white blouses... don't you just picture walking the beach and being comfortable or maybe lounging in the evening on a chaise poolside... the blouses are versatile enough to use as swim cover up tops or even early stages of pregnancy.... just endless options that will be versatile for so many women.
The clutch pictured in the center is beautiful with all the beaded detailing. I truly believe you could throw on some black or white shorts, maybe some skinny white jeans and a basic tank top and use this clutch as your statement piece. I am obsessed with clutches and find pieces like these comparable to a piece of jewelry.... really makes any simple outfit pop and elevates it... what a great conversation piece at those awkward dinners you meet someone new... this piece will stand out.
I see this peachy pink long piece pictured as a comfortable outfit to wear during the day relaxing, maybe doing some cooking or baking and lounging around. It would pair pretty with the gold earring pictured above.... dainty and girlie it coordinates well together. I'd pair the decorative hair pin with the long dress that has the v neck and cool hemline. And I'd pair the white earrings with the bandanna dress! All so cute!
I love looking at all the kitchen things at Cost Plus World Market.... so many unique and cute things!
Take these aprons for example... they have that vintage vibe... don't they make you think of meals from the past and good memories or what you'd like to create in your own home? The gray one is my favorite....
I am a sucker for pretty prints and colors... and especially pretty table settings... I enjoy seeing how everything is brought together to create a really enjoyable meal or gathering... Check out the flatware and how different they are,,, not the usual boring expected ones,,,,
Pictured is a table setting that would be bright and colorful for summer even going into the early part of the fall season... add some votive candles or over sized lanterns in the center of the table with some simple greenery surrounding them, maybe some reggae music for atmosphere and what a fun night on a patio or inside an intimate kitchen area.
So that's the post today on the shopping trip to Cost Plus... I love going there and I always leave feeling inspired. Makes you want to don a new outfit and throw a party to entertain. I hope you'll check out these pretty things I found and hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what you find that you love there... and thank you for reading and sharing this post!
