A Lovely Little à la Mode Link-Up

Happy Monday (I know I know, easy for me to say since I'm a teacher on summer vacation) and welcome to the first Lovely Little à la Mode Link-Up!  I hope that you will stop by and say "hi" to Carrie and Casey today as well as link-up a favorite recent post of yours below!

Now this is what you call an easy, breezy summer dress!  The lightweight, jersey material makes it oh so comfortable even when the temperatures are soaring.  I also love that the cute polka dots help it to stand on its own, while the neutral scheme of navy and white make it easy to accessorize.  In fact, I wore this dress twice during April's Create28: Spring Looks: once with a denim jacket and my Converse and the other time with mint accessories for a baby shower.

Today I'm keeping it simple with cognac accessories including a sparkly headband.  Which brings me to a few questions I have to ask you...what do you think of hair accessories?  If you wear them, how do you combine them with your other jewelry?  I heard a Coco Chanel quote once, "Before you leave the house, take a look in the mirror and take at least one thing off."  As a pretty simplistic accessorizer, I really take this advice to heart.  So when I put on a headband, sometimes I feel like it's just too much.  I know that others can pull-off dangly earrings and arm parties but that just doesn't feel like me.  What do you think?  Can I rock a headband?

While I'm still a bit unsure about my hair accessories, I do love to mix my patterns...even polka dots on polka dots (especially when they're subtle).

What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Old Navy (similar, similar)
Headband: Gift (similar, similar)
Belt: Anthropologie (similar, similar)
Sandals: Target (exact)

And now it's time to link-up!

Each week we choose a favorite...check out Carrie and Casey's blogs to see if it's you! Here was my favorite this week: I absolutely adored this gold silk dress on Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood!  She wore it to celebrate her 10th anniversary with her hubby.  She's not only a fashion inspiration but is a relationship inspiration as well!

Now let's get linking! We like to keep things simple around here. Just link up your favorite posts--fashion, beauty, food, DIY, anything goes! Follow your hosts on social media, have fun and be inspired! Thanks for linking up!
