Summer Date Night Dress

We have made it to Friday, ladies! Yipee! Just in time for the weekend, I’ve got a summer date night dress to share with you. This dress is a part of the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Summer of Color Collection. They have restocked the dress and added some new patterns.

I’m wearing the fire burgundy hot pink color, and it is gorgeous! I thought this pattern would transition into fall and be pretty for an early fall wedding. We are going to a wedding in September, and I might wear this dress with nude heels.

Beauty For the Heart~~“Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every hindrance and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith. For the joy that lay before him, he endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews‬ ‭12:1-2‬

This verse is a great reminder that heaven is cheering us on! So let’s run with endurance and keep our eyes focused on Jesus!

Have a blessed day

  1. Beautiful dress and a gorgeous color on you.. have fun picture taking. I’m sure there will be so many cute ones:) have an awesome vacation and enjoy some down time.
    Blessings and safe travels
    PS I’m loving the little handbags this year… I use my rattan one all the time and get compliments every time..

  2. Pretty! love the colors and yes, I like the black and white one too.
    Have a great time in Charleston! after you get done with Claire pic of course :).

  3. Oh my – enjoy Charleston. One of my favourite cities. Its just so pretty. One of my great memories from one trip there was an unexpected dolphin show out the front of the boat on a trip back from Fort Sumter. I mean, Fort Sumter was great but the dolphins swimming up in front of and beside the boat was magnificent.
    I just always imagine the streets filled with the southern ladies in their beautiful big hooped dresses when I”m there.

    1. Hi Cindy!
      Have fun with taking pictures and enjoy your vacation.
      What a simple and cute dress and beautiful color! I have skin color just like yours.
      I am going to a wedding mid September in Italy. The wedding is 4:00 pm. Do you think this is a good dress for this early evening wedding?

  4. You will enjoy Charleston. We have been a few times and always loved it. I love the dress and love the color. May I say….?…that color maybe a little bold for a wedding. Just a month ago I was reading updated etiquette for weddings. As in the past, it was stated we must be careful not to outshine the bride. Bright colors was specifically mentioned as not to wear. I don’t want to be negative but just wondering,,,

    1. At a semi formal wedding bright, bolder colours are fine during the day, but most guests change into darker coloured attire in the evening. For formal weddings, that dress would definitely be too bold, but simply not dressy enough anyways, so it would be great for a semi formal daytime wedding. It is a really pretty dress!

  5. I have this dress but the neckline really bothers me. I keep thinking I need to return it. Does it ever soften up or lay flatter? And love Charleston! Walking around the city is amazing.

  6. I love how you tell us everything you are doing daily. Feels like we are talking to a friend! Have a great weekend.

  7. I love this dress! It looks comfy and cute.
    I think it would be great for a fall wedding. I’ve heard not to wear white or off white to a wedding, you don’t want to look like the bride, but I think bright colors are fine.

  8. Very cute dress! I really liked how you added the accessories. I just bought a bright colored dress too. Have fun on your trip Charleston is so unique…

  9. Love this dress!
    Just ordered it in the navy/red print. The ruffles and tie back are so feminine and pretty. It will be perfect for church, date night, and even back to school. Here in Texas, I can probably wear it through the fall.
    Thank you for always starting my day in an uplifting way!

  10. Love the colors in that dress! Have a great time in Charleston! We vacationed there maybe 6 or 7 years ago, and I still remember how good the shrimp & grits were at a restaurant called Hyman’s Seafood!

  11. Enjoy you down time, you deserve it. Love to see pictures when you can. Never been to Charleston, but would love to go. The dress is so pretty on you and I love the little purse.

  12. wow whar a range of options. this is the exact dress i made about 30 yrs ago. it is such an easy style and i would not imagine any body shape that would not be flattered b it.

    How nice that you and Wayne are able to so easily co-ordinate your times for a getaway. Have a great time. I can imagine your having a great opportunity for worship in that city.

  13. Oh my….you get the cutest dresses. They look way better on you than the model. Now I want this one. I just bought the royal blue, sleeve one you styled as I have an early Sept. wedding. I love it. Enjoy your busy weekend and time with the grandkids and your fun trip to look forward to. Blessings. PS Is this dress bra friendly or do you have a strapless bra on? It looks like it cuts back on the shoulders.

  14. Sometime could you feature comfy, but fashionable shoes that are not flats? I’m sure there are others like me who need arch support.
    Btw, how do feel about your sister’s move? She has such a beautiful family, too.

  15. Love the dress! going to get it for an outdoor wedding in Mid September.
    You’ll Love Everything about Charleston! My 2 Oldest daughters just moved there after College for work. Sad for me they are so far away but best Move they could have ever made! Enjoy every moment there!!
