i’m wearing: chevron print dress c/o ross dress for less, charles david wedges found at nordstrom rack, LOFT necklace (old), louis vuitton wallet, michael kors watch and various bracelets.

you might remember my last trip to ross dress for less when i picked up these striped wedges (last seen here). this time i went on a mission to find the perfect dress for the 4th of july. um, i ended up coming home with THREE dresses and the fedora in yesterday’s post! i literally had my cart overflowing with dresses and eep (my son) was having a blast dumping the entire contents of my purse on the dressing room floor. i ended up wearing this one to moms night out. and then my friend (hi sam!) made fun of me for calling it “ross dress for less” instead of just “ross”. lol. that was just one of our many laughs of the evening…i don’t even know when i started calling it by it’s full name. ha ha!

oh, and i almost forgot…who’s in the mood for a giveaway? ross wants to give one lucky stylish housewife reader a $25 gift card to help you find your perfect summer dress. here’s how to win:

    Haha – you crack me up! Love the chevron print and can’t wait to see the other dresses you picked up. I have to strategically pack matchbox cars in my purse when I take my son shopping with me so he’ll have something to play with while I’m trying on clothes! 🙂

    I’d like to enter the giveaway…I’ll be with my family on July 4th as part of a long standing family tradition. We hang out at my parents house who live up the hill from the Rose Bowl, in Pasadena, CA. We bbq and then the “younger ones” walk to the hill and watch the Firework show. Simple, but it’s always a great time!

    Hope you enjoy yours!
