Trend Spin Linkup Week 47 - Summer Dresses

 
 Subtle Luxury Tunic (sized up 2 sizes and wore as a dress) c/o // Denim Jacket gifted (save, splurge) // Report Flats via Aeropostale c/o // GiGi New York iPhone Case c/o // Aeropostale Watch c/o // Accessory Concierge Neckalce c/o

Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today! Today's trend is summer dresses.  I have mentioned a few times how I've been trying to add more dresses to my wardrobe, especially since I'm 15 weeks pregnant now.  I've realized I can only wear my usual pencil skirt and blouse to work for so long before I start looking like some strange person with a pudge lol.  I'm in that awkward stage where sometimes I look like I have a bump and sometimes I don't.  Usually as the day goes on it gets bigger - especially as I eat, and Shane said yeah, me too lol.  = )  So...dresses are quickly replacing my skirts.  Plus, it's only 1 piece instead of 2.  Now that's a no brainer.  Today for summer dresses, I styled this beautiful white and neon tunic from Subtle Luxury.  I just ordered up 2 sizes so I could wear it as a dress.  I think it will also be the perfect bikini coverup!  Now it's your turn to show us how you wear it.  We want to see your denim dresses, maxis and other summer dressed.  Here are our top two  looks from last week!

Next Tuesday's theme is shorts!  It is getting hot around here, and I just realized I only have one pair that will not look like booty shorts while I'm pregnant, so I guess I better get to shopping.  I am going to check out Old Navy.  Any other good sales you've seen on shorts??

All bloggers will be able to submit their post links via the inlinkz widget below every Tuesday at 7:00am CST with their take on our trend of the week. This will allow bloggers to show off their personal style, find new followers and meet some great fashionistas! You will also have the chance to be featured on our blogs the following Tuesday! So grab the button (on my Trend Spin Linkup page) and link up. For all bloggers we simply ask that you please follow your 2 hosts and your cohost of the week - Walking in Memphis in High Heels, The Fashion Canvas and Sunflowers & Stilettos (the first 3 links in the linkup) and provide a link to the Trend Spin Linkup in your post or add the button below to your blog. Don't forget to stop by the The Fashion Canvas and Sunflowers & Stilettos to see how they wore their trend today. We hope to see you next week in shorts!

Laura I always love your clutches - a beautiful pop of colour every time! The weather in the UK isn't particularly warm yet, we often only get a few weeks of weather warm enough for dresses. Boo! But when it IS warm enough, I'm all over them like a rash ;))

Thanks for hosting, sweetie!

I'm not even preggo and dresses are my favorite. One piece! Heck yes! My husband says I like it because I can go from zero to pjs in about 2 minutes instead of 5.

I'm trying to get more dresses too! But not because I'm preggo. lol. Just because they're easy and breezy and perfect for summer :) My sister is pregnant and she found some super cute maternity shorts at Target.

Laura, I am a sucker for a good shirt-dress. They are so chic, cool and easy to wear. Love your white one. Looks great paired with the denim jacket. I adore the flats, necklace and clutch, too. The other 2 Hostesses look FAB in their Dresses, as well.

It is my absolute pleasure linking up with you each week. This week in particular because you are featuring Dresses and I love a Good Dress, especially if it's a New Birthday Dress (check mine out!!)

Have an Enjoyable Tuesday Love and please get some rest. <3 Ada.
