As soon as I put on this dress and straw hat, I immediately felt like a southern belle. All I needed was a big front porch and a tall glass of lemon…

I know off-the-shoulder tops and dresses have been all the rage for the past two summers, but to me this outfit still feels timeless. And that’s one of the things I strive for in my personal style – to create looks that are beautiful and stand the test of time (without breaking the bank). This outfit does just that, and what’s even better is that every item was $50 or less.
