Summer in a JCPenney dress / Perfect!

Hi Everybody!
I played hookey last week. It was a rainy, stormy week, so I did indoor stuff. 
I am wearing another JCPenney find. I actually ordered it during the Spring. The pattern and colors were a bit different so I went for it. I usually NEVER order dresses, as my boobs have a universe all their own, but since there is a real store nearby, I did it. Very satisfied I must say!

This dress was very well priced. What caught my eye was pretty much everything. Keyhole neckline, a back cut-out which still covers a real bra, (of course, I forgot to photograph it), color, waistline in a more natural cut, (not too high) and high-end stretch cotton. The brighter colors and 'mirror' effect pattern brought it into the world of  modern without making it too trendy. This dress will go far. I see flip-flops to layers and boots. a chunky cardi, perhaps? We'll see!
Dress: JCPenney // Hat: Target // Sunnies // retail shop // Necklace: Sears  // boots: Banana Republic
The dress was only 35.00 . 
I also planted my flowers for the season. Truthfully, I really dislike Summer. UNLESS, I am on my way to the beach. During the super high temps. I am an air conditioned kind of gal. I was sweating profusely here. Your welcome...
I will try to go with the flow. 
Little red leaves dancing around in my dreams...
 Here's to a great week!

Isn't it wonderful to find a dress that fits in all the right places? I do love the print of this wee gem too, the symmetry pattern is so lovely. I love to see your smiley face dear Reva. xoxo

You did the summer-thing perfectly, Reva...love these softer colors on you! We would throw on a pair of sandals down here, boots would be too sweaty!! You look so cute in this dress.

what I love about summer most is: it's still light out at 8:30pm. Not too crazy about the heat. Viva la A/C!

That is a really sweet dress, love the full skirt

You look ADORABLE in that dress! Who cares where it came from? My favorite skirt is from Target.

What a CUTE dress!! love it on you!!

I'm with you on the heat--here in Western Maryland we are expecting 95-100 heat with like 98% humidity.
Sweat like a pig is not a fashion statement!!

That is a very cute dress and I'm sure will work with layers too. I like the summer for the festivals and sunshine, but could do without the extreme heat and humidity which just wears me out. I am sooo glad I have central air!

Such a cute dress! And you look summery and like you're having a fabulous time - thanks for sharing all the joy with Vis Monday.

The dress is marvellous, Reva! I love the 60s style of it with its high waist. That makes it fit perfectly. What I also like is that you are wearing it with your boots.
A great look!

with a full skirt like that I wouldn't be able to resist the urge to wear a petticoat under it!
