Plaid Dress for the Summer

One of my favorite brands, Cooper & Ella, has come to one of my favorite stores, Nordstrom!  Does anyone remember this Cooper & Ella top that I practically lived in last summer?  Thankfully, the top is back…this time in dress form and new prints.  I never would have thought I would be wearing a plaid dress for the summer, but the colors are perfect for the season.  Although the dress is a great length for work for me, I just need to be sure to wear a cardigan, blazer, or my denim jacket to cover up the edgy back cutout.

Cooper & Ella makes amazing clothes, but they also give back….for every piece that sells, they provide a nutritious meal for a child in need.

    What a fun dress, I think you could wear this dress to work alone, it doesn’t look like it’s too much skin by any means. Pretty!

    You already had me with this dress from the front, but then I saw the bag and died! I love the details! And the plaid print and colors are perfect for summer! XO
