I adore this dress so much. I loved the easy breezy feel to it when I initially saw the dress online, but had no idea how versatile it would be and just how much wear I’d get out of it. I probably lean on it a little too much, especially when I have those ‘I don’t have anything to wear’ moments. But really, it’s one of those dresses you can wear on any occasion! Enough about the dress, how about these fab Joie lace up sandals?! The laces do fall down when you tie them this high, but once you get them secured lower, they’re incredibly comfortable, lightweight, and oh-so-chic.

p.s. I’m filling in for new mama, Lexi over on Glitter Inc. today. Be sure to check out my favorite summer trend!

    I love those sandals. I scored them in black for $55 when Piperlime was having a sale. I almost feel like I stole them!

    Loving the dress! This is a great simple summer outfit, and I can just tell that’s a dress I’d want to live in all summer.

    This is the way I feel about certain pieces, like my jean jacket. It’s just so versatile, and I love it, even though it’s old.

    This look is so fresh, effortless & chic. The hat is what puts the stamp on the look (in my opinion). My favorite pic out of the collection is, the one of you in front of the three doors. There’s something poetic about it. Great job to you & your photographer.
