Get Fashionable for Summer with Bella Ella Boutique {Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!}

 Bella Ella Boutique logo
Even though I spend the majority of my days in either jeans or yoga pants (or, ahem, pajamas), that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate having the option to open my closet and find high quality, timeless articles of clothing as well. After all, sometimes it just feels good to pull on something relaxed and carefree that also adds a bit of a dressy, stylish touch to my life.

While I can easily walk into any department store or through the mall to find those articles of clothing to spruce up my wardrobe, they can often start to all look pretty much the same. Instead, I love finding a company that understands how to dress a woman's body in a way that is flattering, feminine, colorful and, of course, fashionable.

Which is why as soon as I was introduced to Bella Ella Boutique, it was easy to see that their dedication to creating affordable, one-of-a-kind pieces that women want to wear every day comes through with each and every piece of apparel and jewelry they offer!

Bella Ella Boutique

Carrying regular and plus size clothing, as well as jewelry, Bella Ella Boutique has been thrilling customers for the past three years online at BellaEllaBoutique.com and in their six stores (soon to be seven) in Utah.

From cute tops to trendy skinny jeans to flowing dresses to lace skirt extenders for those skirts and dresses that are a tiny bit too short, once you start browsing Bella Ella, it's hard to stop. After looking at page after page and realizing that I had made a mental list of at least a dozen things that I would love to own, I was ready to experience these stylish pieces in person.

When the Short Sleeve Chevron Dress with Red Belt arrived, I was immediately in love with the simplicity, elegance and complete versatility that it would provide.

Chevron print dress

Featuring a silky smooth polyester (that wasn't at all wrinkled!) and designed with small details and comfortable styling, I was ready to put this dress on right out of the package.

After all, I have been in love with the chevron print ever since it burst onto the fashion scene and this was just the right mix of casual and dressy to show it off!

women's chevron dress

As I had suspected, I loved the features of this dress in person just as much as I had when viewing it on Bella Ella's website.

The lightweight feel is perfect for warm weather, while pulling on a sweater, tights and boots will easily transition it to fall. As the fabric is not lined, I did feel that this Short Sleeve Chevron Dress was a little too thin to wear on its own, however, the addition of a spaghetti-strap black slip underneath was an extremely easy fix.

Overall, I'm thrilled with the way that this dress can be dressed up with heels and nice jewelry for an evening out or to attend a wedding, yet pulling on flats or sandals with it makes it just that easy to wear for an everyday occasion.

spring Chevron dress

From the clean lines to the quality construction to the way that the Short Sleeve Chevron Dress with Red Belt makes me feel confident and put together without any effort or work, I have no doubt that I will be wearing this all summer long and beyond! I could easily switch out the included red belt for another color and give the whole thing a completely different appeal!

As the icing on the cake, I have seen similar boutique dresses retail for $50 or $60+, but at Bella Ella, the price tag is only $29.99! In fact, with such affordable prices on all of their clothing and accessories, you are sure to find at least one that can make a splash in your wardrobe without putting a major dent in your wallet.

Be sure to visit Bella Ella Boutique on their website as well as connecting with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to never miss the latest and greatest information, sales, new releases, giveaways and more.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person is soon going to see just how difficult it is to choose a favorite item from Bella Ella, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift certificate to Bella Ella Boutique!
