It already feels like summer with this seersucker dress from Duffield Lane!

I've filed this under the category of "One Item, Two Ways" because when I first got my hot little hands on this dress I instantly thought of Mother's Day and of Memorial Day dressing. It's all in the accessories, light colours for later spring...

...and pops of red for Memorial Day, Canada Day, Fourth of July, picnics, parties, you name it!

Dress: Duffield Lane (c/o)
Mother's Day: Purse | Sandals | Hat | Bracelet
Memorial Day: Purse | Flats | Sunnies (similar) | Bracelet

Aside from the fact that I have a little sunburn to deal with, I had a fantastic Mother's Day and I hope that you mamas out there did too! We did a little cruising, visited with family and spent a lot of time outside (hence the sunburned shoulders. Oops!)

AMH bought me a new purse, my Kate Spade one in the first set of photos. I am the last person in the world that needs a new purse but to quote him "I saw it and knew it was you". I guess I am blue and stripes which makes sense since when Duffield Lane reached out to show me their spring line, I instantly fell in love with this seersucker blue dress!

The Walloon Dress in navy with white is a fit and flare style, also known as my favourite style of dress! It's super comfortable and I felt great wearing it all day yesterday. There was a lot of getting in and out of a vehicle with no air conditioning (gotta love classic cars!), a good amount of walking and an equal amount of sitting outside enjoying the nice weather.

The scalloped edging is such a great detail on the dress. The white seems to add a little more colour to your face (it's like magic!) and because it's such a pretty detail I find you don't need to add too much in the way of jewellery. I just wore my everyday pearl studs and my KJP monogram necklace.

The dress fits true to size (TTS) and it's selling out fast! If you're looking for a versatile dress this summer, something you can wear to a few holiday parties or even just out for brunch, this is the dress for you.
