Summer is all about celebrating family and friends after a long and cold winter. I found this week's STYLE ADVICE Fashionista celebrating her cousin's engagement at a quaint restaurant located right on the water. Despite the rain and chilled sparkling apple cider, this Fashionista donned a sleeveless mini sheath dress perfect for the engagement party.

For me, a college girl who is always on a clothing budget, it's important to look for dresses that can be worn over and over again that make people say “Wow, I have never seen you wear that dress before!” (when in fact I actually have!).

At the beachside engagement party, she paired her sheath dress with a gold and white thick-chained necklace and gold sandals. “It was a simple dress that I paired with simple jewelry and a pop of gold with the sandals. It was great for an engagement party at the beach,” said the Fashionista. “I do have a wedding coming up and I am planning on dressing my Monteau dress up to make it a little more fancy with a pair of heels.”

Lucky for this Fashionista she found the navy blue, Monteau sheath dress at TJ Maxx and it is perfect for a summer wedding. To achieve the fancier look for the upcoming event, this Fashionista can pair her navy blue dress with a wedge from Coach and a necklace from J.Crew. Wearing a heel immediately makes an outfit dressier and the cork wedge keeps the outfit summery. 

Fashionistas everywhere, take note, shopping at Marshall's and TJ Maxx is a great way to stay on budget and find great designer duds for less. I know it sounds like the commercials, but all Fashionistas know how tempting it is to buy five dresses for all of the different summer occasions. With stores like Marshall's and TJ Maxx, you can find one great dress and unique accessories that transforms a dress and create an entirely different look! The classy, navy blue Monteau dress was a great find and is perfect for any occassion.
