The Yellow Lace Dress I’m Lovin’ This Summer

Have you noticed that lace dresses seem to be everywhere?

Pretty yellow lace dresses like this one have become popular because they are so versatile.

Lace dresses used to be for special occasions, but now you can wear one anywhere, from a work meeting to dinner to a summer wedding. I think every woman should have a lace dress in her closet. It comes in very handy.

I couldn’t resist this sunny white and yellow dress. Don’t you love that gorgeous lace detail?  The decorative floral cutouts are so modern and sophisticated.

This is the second lace dress I’ve bought recently. The other was a coral-colored lace shift dress that had medallion cutouts. Did you see it?

That’s the beautiful thing about lace dresses. They’re all so different. Some have tiny lace cut-outs, and some have large cut-outs. Some have traditional patterns, and some are edgy. Even if you own two lace dresses, that’s o.k. You don’t feel like you are repeating yourself because each is so unique.

What attracted me most to this dress was the cheerful color. Yellow is trending this spring and works well with my fair hair and skin. Plus, it just happens to be my favorite color. You don’t see yellow a lot, which is why this dress seemed so fresh and inviting.

When I was deciding what shoes and bag to wear, I thought about the dress’s ladylike feel and decided on fine, strappy high-heeled sandals. This is such an elegant dress it needs elegant shoes. The nude color doesn’t interfere with the beautiful pop of yellow.

My chic handbag is Michael Kors. It’s very Chanel- like with the quilting and gold chain strap.  A more structured bag like this works well with this slender, tailored sheath. This bag has an excellent shape. It’s not boxy or heavy. In fact, it’s quite light, which surprised me. Beautiful color too!

You might think that lace would be stiff, but Maggy London makes a very comfortable dress.

  1. Absolutely beautiful dress! Yellow is such a happy color 😀 I was curious where you found your cute sunglasses. Thank you for your blog

  2. I’m fairly new to your blog. Although I enjoy reading it, I cannot afford any of the clothing you feature. This lovely Maggie London dress is $100.00 on sale, I’m sure I’m not the only woman reading who would find this dress too expensive. Many of us would like to have an age appropriate wardrobe but have strict clothing budgets. Perhaps I need to follow a different blog.

    1. Hi Judy, It’s really hard to please everyone. This is a personal blog so I select things I like and can afford. However, I think you have raised a good idea to throw in some budget features. Everyone loves a good deal.
      All the best, Deborah

  3. I love this yellow dress…possible for granddaughters wedding
    but I can’t find the other yellow dresses.

  4. This dress is beautiful! I have 4 lace dresses. That is what I gravitate to when I am shopping. You can dress it up or down.
    Thanks for sharing your style. I like it.
