Bold Summer Prints + Bow Heels

Thank you to Saks & ShopStyle for partnering on this post.
With Memorial Day weekend around the corner, I’ve been feeling inspired to continue stepping out of my usual neutrals zone! Brighter and bolder prints are always a welcome way to bring on summer, especially after our long grey winters here. I’m partnering with Saks to share some unique, vibrant pieces that are extra eye catching for summer events. They’re also running a promo right now with up to 50% off designer items, including my romantic tulle dot Staud dress (see my review) and lots of Zimmerman pieces and designer shoes. You can shop the full sale here – I recommend filtering by your size and price point!

Farm Rio Dresses

One brand at Saks that’s been on my radar for a while for their striking, bold prints is Farm Rio. They’re a Brazilian company that was founded with designs to celebrate the country’s vibrant colors and feminine spirit. This lemon dress is made of a thicker linen blend, and is lined in a soft material with adjustable shoulder straps. Fit is TTS so the XS is a little roomy on me and could be taken in to be more fitted. When laying flat, the XS measures: 16″ across the bust, 13″ across the waist, 18″ across the hips, and 42″ length not including the adjustable shoulder straps. 

I’ve dressed it up here for a look suitable for a summer wedding or cocktail event, but it also looks very cute with simple flat strappy sandals and a straw bag. Here are a few others pieces from the brand that may suit a shorter frame:

These gorgeous knotted Camellia sandals from Loeffler Randall have also been on my wishlist for a while! They’re one of the brand’s core shoe styles, and come in different colors and fabrics year after year in varying heel heights, and with either an ankle strap or slip on mule style. They’re comfortable for the height due to sturdy block heels, and feel very well made. I wish I had spotted this pair in French floral before – love the subtle, feminine pattern that still works as a versatile neutral. This style would make a really lovely bridal or bridal party shoe, too!
