Little Pink Dress

With so many events going on this summer, we’ve decided to stay close to home and take a big vacation this Fall. Thus, my husband and I are trying to make the most of every free weekend we have by exploring nearby cities and ducking our heads into those restaurants we’ve always wanted to try. We like to think of it as a little stay-cation ;) One thing that I love to do is visit the old Meadowlark Dairy after date night. The drive thru dairy offers great swirl ice cream cones. I couldn’t resist this past weekend with the high temps.

Leather Tote Bag

I didn’t realize how much use I would get out of my tote bag everyday. I had always admired the beautiful brown leather bags from Madewell and J.Crew (30% off w/code SHOPNOW), but never wanted to spend the money on a simple tote. Insert this vegan leather one from Nordies and my life changed. It’s not only a great Mary Poppins bag to throw all my stuff into, but acts as a small grocery bag for those times I forget my reusable bags at home (ugh-so annoying!). Plus, this one is reversible from brown to black for those days when I feel I need a change in color.

Stripe Fit & Flare

With Memorial day behind us and the official start to summer, I’ve been on the hunt for more dresses that can transition easily to all the different events I’ll be attending. All my boxes were checked when I found this little stripe number. I love the simple fit and flare silhouette and classic navy/white stripe print.  I can already see myself wearing it for bbq’s, picnics in Napa, or upcoming bridal shower parties. A swap of accessories and I’ll be ready to go!

I’m a firm believer that sexiness is derived from being classy. I always admire women that can put themselves together and be confident in their appearance without having to reveal their entire body.

I was immediately drawn to this lace dress because of the off-the-shoulder detailing. I think it does a great job walking that fine line of classy and sexy. Baring your shoulders is a subtle way of showing your skin without over doing it. Plus, I couldn’t beat the price for a summer dress ($50 holla).

Bohemian: Free People

I tend to think of my style as more ‘classic and feminine’. However, every now and then I crave a more relaxed bohemian style. And when I do, Free People is always my one stop shop for different, eclectic dresses and tops. This dress in particular caught my eye with the bell laced sleeves and floral print. Truth be told, I was admiring another women wearing it when I was out one afternoon and decided I had to try it on for myself! It ended up being perfect for my best friend’s bridal shower this past weekend. I’ve listed below a few other Free People favorites!
