Dress: Cherry Bobin – $120; Shoes: Croche Flats – El Naturalista, $184


Style Coach Vanessa says, “This is the perfect summer sundress!  Lightweight and stretchy for easy wearability and comfort.  Wear it with flats and a scarf for a day in the park or some cute sandals and a big floppy hat for a day at the beach!”


Style Coach Vanessa says, “You can’t go wrong with this simple, stretchy summer dress!  The band around the waist creates an hourglass silhouette that any woman can appreciate and the printed fabric adds a fun pop of colour for easy transitioning from daywear to night.  Wear it with layered long necklaces for a boho streetwear look, or add a cardi and some heels for a night out!”
