Checks Please!!

You guys, I am so excited to share with you my love for summer dresses.  This is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I live in dresses as much as I possibly can!  Maxi and midi dresses are top faves but all things black & white are my jam!!  Who doesn’t love a good checkered/plaid dress, and when it has special features like ruffles, side cut outs and off the shoulder as well—-I have to have them!!  I have 2 dresses I recently purchased I want to show you today.  The first is this great OTS Bardot Dress that falls just above the knee on me (the site says its a mini dress, but not really as you can see it’s just the right length—so don’t let that scare you aware if you don’t like short dresses).  I also found it to be true to size and quite flattering. I decided to style my look with a pop of yellow by layering 2 necklaces together and then my caged/lace up sandals to finish the look.  What do  you think?


The second dress I am wearing is this great midi length cut out dress that buttons down the front.  It has a drawstring with tassels at the waist and the most perfectly placed side cut-outs that show just the right amount of skin while still remaining classy.  I decided to add a gold-tone chunky necklace and wore the same lace up heels to finish the look.  This dress would make a perfect party dress, date night dress, and even work appropriate by adding a classic cardigan and change of footwear.  I love that this piece is so versatile. How would you wear this dress?


Both of these dresses are comfortable, stylish, and effortlessly chic all at the same time.  Oh, and both of them are under $35!!  I’ve linked my exact looks so you too can get your hands on these great dresses now!!  Thanks for reading and as always I would love a follow on my Instagram page as well as please leave your email and sign up to follow my blog too.  I appreciate each and every comment you leave and try to respond to all of them!


Love, Nicole

  1. I just love the off the shoulder look. So I love that first dress. And gingham is one of my favorite prints! Love how you styled these dresses.

  2. First these dresses are both cute. Secondly, I love how they are both on the inexpensive. I live in dresses too during the spring and summer because it’s the perfect seasons to indulge because of the weather. You look great in both options.
