Circus Vibes with Rosegal & Link Up On the Edge #43

Since my last two posts were a bit on the deeper side, I am sticking with a straight outfit post today. This is mostly because my brain gets wiped out when I get too intense. So on with it…how freaking adorable is this dress from Rosegal?

*This is a sponsored post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are completely my own.

If you have been following my blog, then you already know that I have a bit of an obsession lately with vintage-inspired dresses. You also know that I like to keep things on the edge. When I saw this bright mint colored dress with the big, bold stripes and the fun circus print on the skirt, it really did need to become mine. And the belt! I can’t even get over how stinking cute the belt is.

Other than the stiff cotton fabric creating a challenge in the de-wrinkling department (it took a lot of steam to get it even close to looking pressed…and then it wrinkled as soon as I sat down), the quality of this dress is actually quite good. It has a side zipper and is unlined. The fabric is thick and not sheer at all so I didn’t an extra under layer.  The belt is not attached but it stayed firmly in place all day without shifting around at all.

I accessorized with white knee high socks and red patent ballet flats, my white laser cut bag and floral clustered pearl necklace. It is still quite chilly here in the north country, so I added my mint trench coat to prevent freezing to death!

And check out the other print that is available in this dress. I had a difficult time choosing. They are both so cute! They also have a wonderful selection of Maxi Dress Casual options for Spring and Summer.

Remember when ordering from Rosegal, choose your size based on the actual measurements given. For size reference, I am wearing a 4X in this dress.
