Today I am sharing two summer dresses that were sent to me by Four Arrows Western Wear! When Four Arrows reached out to me, I took a jog down memory lane. See when I was 7 years old, I was obsessed with Shania Twain. So much so, I wanted to be a country western singer! As we all know, I have yet to break into the country music scene, probably for the better, since I cannot carry a tune as well as Shania. However, I have always adored country western style! From the cowboy boots to the fringe, it is definitely a timeless style. So when Four Arrows reached out to me I knew this was my time to channel my inner Shania Twain! Sans singing of course… “Any man of mine…..!!” Okay maybe just a little bit…
I was sent two dresses from the Four Arrows – Embrace Collection. The first dress F-0004 is a purple and blue patchwork like dress with cream tassels at the bottom. It is very lightweight and comfy. For someone on the shorter side (5’1 here!), this was the perfect summer maxi dress! I love the romantic feel of this dress. I could see myself wearing this on a date with the hubby or out exploring a new place on a weekend adventure. I added a brown braided belt from H&M to add some shape to the dress. I also paired this dress with brown block wedge sandals from Charming Charlie that I bought last summer, that made me feel 6 feet tall. Here are similar styles from Nordstrom and Charlotte Russe.
Any outfit is not complete until you adorn yourself with turquoise jewelry. When it comes to turquoise jewelry, I tend to choose unique styles like this tiered triangle turquoise necklace made by my hubby, Turquoise Hogan. Add a bold turquoise statement ring and a bold cuff and you are good to go!
How about you? When picking out turquoise jewelry, which styles do you gravitate toward?
Oh yeah! We cannot forget the baby pink fringe purse. I picked this up from Target last year. It was such steal at $10 on clearance. The quality of this purse definitely makes this a coveted piece in my wardrobe! I am frequent clearance/deal shopper. How about you? Although this one is no longer available these ones are similar from Asos and Bloomingdale’s.
The second dress W-80417 is a multicolored shift dress with gorgeous white lace detailing at the bottom. At $27.95 this dress is a steal! I paired the dress with some maroon cowboy boots I bought 5 years ago from Ross. Here are some similar style boots from JC Penney and DSW. The boots really tied the whole outfit together. I knew these maroon boots would come in hand sooner than later! You could also pair this dress with a simple nude heel or sandal. I picked my brightest turquoise necklace and a bold cuff which were all made by my hubby, Turquoise Hogan.
My favorite part of this dress is the lace detail on the bottom of the dress. I love how it gives this dress a feminine and girly touch to it!
This would be the perfect date night or concert dress. Perhaps a date to a Fenders or Aces Wild concert? I have actually never been to a country concert before! I may have to check out a concert this summer. The vibrant colors on this dress are sure to make you stand out in any crowd
So what did you think? Which is your favorite? How would you style them? I love both dresses. I will be wearing these throughout the summer. Follow along on my Instagram and Facebook to see how I style these differently throughout the year! Want to read about the behind scenes of this photoshoot? Check out my blog post here.
