Gorgeous $40 Purple Midi Dress + Patricia Nash Trunk Show Event

April 12, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! Whew, this is one of those weeks where I am saying to myself, “we made it!” I don’t often feel that way, but after a super delayed flight home, a toddler who screamed the entire way, and a 2 am bedtime on Monday night/Tuesday morning, this has seemed like a week of constant catch up. I am so excited to be sharing this gorgeous $40 purple midi dress with you along with some fun details about this bag and a Patricia Nash trunk show.

Patricia Nash Trunk Show Event

Patricia Nash contacted me about helping share some details for their trunk show tomorrow, April 13th from 2-4 pm at Dillard’s in Woodland Hills Mall here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They kindly gifted me this fun circle bag which I just love! I hadn’t previously heard of the line, but the designs are fun. Though she has leather bags inspired by her travels, I particularly like the woven/straw and round bags for summer. You can shop them below. I’ll be at the event from 3-4, and I would love to see you if you are local!

Outfit Details

My gorgeous dress is by Old Navy, and the sizes in my particular color are selling out fast. I keep checking and they will be gone, then back, then gone. I recommend snagging it if interested! It is also available in white, black, and chambray. I just love the fit and style. Plus it is super affordable and a great summer dress. I don’t know about you all, but I live in midi and maxi dresses in the warmer months. I can chase Ivy Jean without fear of flashing anyone, and they are more comfortable for me than shorts in most cases. I’m wearing a size small. I can sometimes wear an XS and needed a small in this. If you are between sizes, I would size up. 

Affordable Summer Dresses – $40 and Under for Work and Play

Honestly, Old Navy is just killing it in the summer dress department in general! Seriously, I almost bought about 5 and had to hold myself back because I really do not need any. I’m going to link some below for you because they are all on sale and $40 or under. They work for work, weekend, summer events, and can be dressed up or down.
