I can’t believe that it took me this long to finally post this outfit! If you follow me on Instagram you have seen this dress a couple of times. I absolutely adore these photos. This red backless ruffle dress is perfect for the beach, as a cover-up or just for every day.
Styling a Ruffle Dress
This ruffle dress is just so fun and playful and it is a wonderful colour, too! I paired this red ruffle dress with a boho bracelet and my brown cork wedges (that I cant seem to get enough of). The best part is that this dress is under $18…pretty much a steal for this killer dress!
A big thanks so my gorgeous friend Ali Bordt for doing my hair. 🙂 Also, let’s all just take a minute and appreciate how awesome Thomas Bullock is for taking these killer photos! ❤
These photos are taken at the Iona Beach Regional Park in Richmond. A lot of people don’t know this exists and it is really nice to visit. Plus it is close to Vancouver and the airport.

I feel like the dancing emoji girl in this dress.
I hope you all have a great Monday! This morning I am off to the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish and then to Vancouver. Lots more photos in the works.
