Random, but does anyone out there feel a lot more comfortable when they’re wearing less makeup? I was rushing out the door for dinner (as usual) and I only had time to throw on mascara and lipstick. I don’t normally leave the house without eyeliner, but I was pleasantly surprised with the look I ended up with! Less is more, right?

Anyway, let’s talk about this dress, shall we? It’s from one of my favorite online shops, The Mint Julep Boutique. This little boutique is my go-to for affordable sundresses. This one in particular is less than $45! I’m obsessed with the fun, bright colors of this dress and it’s absolutely perfect for a summer night out. Also, the back of this dress is so fun and unexpected!

Lucky for you, I’m teaming up with The Mint Julep Boutique to give away a $50 gift card to one lucky reader! Enter via the widget below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only aged 18+.

  6. I totally agree about the make-up! Except only in the summer for me. For some reason in the winter I always have a full face on haha

    I am a firm believer that less is more when it comes to makeup. So many times when I have my makeup done by a professional I end up feeling a little uncomfortable all day long because it is so caked on and over the top (even though they’ve done a great job). You’re naturally gorgeous!

    • You’re too sweet, thank you! And I completely agree, less is more! I hate getting my makeup done by pros cause I feel like a clown afterwards!
