Palm Prints


Palm prints, like floral, have an almost synonymous effect with summer. Lucky for me, the weather where I live almost feels like summer all year round. Thus, I cannot turn down this gorgeous dress when I saw it on the Shein website. The palm prints and the vibrant orange color were a beautiful combo. I do not usually go for orange when shopping but this was one of those few exceptions. It has cut-out details on the side, too, which looks like a lot of fun.


Dress: Shein (sold out - similar, similar)
Watch: Michael Kors
Shoes: Mendrez (similar)
Clutch: old (similar, similar)


A few tips when shopping this dress though: the fabric has no stretch. I was lucky that I chose the right size because the dress fits me like a glove. I got it in medium (my heart sank a bit to say that). If I would have gotten a small, I don’t think I’d be able to wear it at all. If I would have gotten a large, it might be too baggy. The medium was the perfect fit for me. I suggest you should take your own measurements and compare it with the sizing chart at Shein in the actual product page. The sizing can differ with each product; this means you might measure small for one product and measure medium for another.

Overall, very pleased with this dress. I dressed it up with my Michael Kors watch, nude heels and black clutch. I’m so excited to wear it for a tropical vacation and dress it down for the beach!

How would you wear this dress? Are you a fan of palm prints?

  11. This is such a pretty dress! At first glance, I though it was a matching set, so cute! I love that the palm tree prints are orange, making it more bold and unique than the green. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great Monday so far!

  18. Hi! That dress definitely fits you like a glove. I think the sizing for these fast fashion asian sites is really tricky. It's almost always too tight or way too big. And don't feel bad...I definitely go a size up with them.

    I agree with you about checking the individual measurements for everything before you buy it too, I've had a few surprises shopping online when I haven't checked!
