say yes to the dress

Drawcord dress in rust (also in green); Tom Ford sunglasses (old, similar); GAP white slide sandals (old, similar); Madewell pom pom necklace (old, similar).

I love the color combo of rust and white/ivory, it’s perfect for the summer season. I ordered a size Small and it’s true to size. It’s generous in the torso but the armholes are a very good fit. If I sized down to an XS, the armholes would be too tight. Love the deep pockets and the cool cotton blend material (it has a bit of stretch to it). This dress is versatile and works with sneakers or a strappy sandal. The dress also comes in petite sizes.

Striped tank midi dress; GAP white slide sandals (old, similar).

I’m glad I ordered two sizes of this tank midi dress since it runs small or snug in the torso. The small was too tight over my stomach area, so no bueno. The medium is perfect for me. I’m wearing a normal bra and it doesn’t show at the shoulders nor at the armholes. I’m quite impressed by the thicker and stretchy cotton knit fabric and the construction of this inexpensive (less than $25!) dress. The red and blue stripe combo is rather snappy and brings out my inner prepster. Mama’s got her Fourth of July outfit–sweet. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Both dresses are keepers. Enjoy your Wednesday! xo

beach please

‘Part Mermaid’ cap; Palm print swimsuit; Striped tank midi dress; Clean Ultimate Beach Night.

Summer is decidedly here. I’m so ready to get my beach on. Here are a few fun staples to get you in the mood.

How cute is the ‘Part Mermaid’ cap? I’m planning to wear this on the beach and the boardwalk. I live in baseball caps this time of year since they’re great for sun protection and to keep my hair and the sweat out of my eyes.

I’m really loving the palm print trend lately, it’s an easy way to bring the tropics to you. The swimsuit is BOGO 50% off so I ordered two sizes to see which fits me better. I’m hoping it fits, it’s a junior sized swimsuit so I’d order up a size or two. Fingers crossed.

I love red and blue stripes together and this tank midi dress epitomizes comfy chic. The dress is also BOGO 50% off, so I ordered two sizes and plan to keep the size that fits. I’m liking midi length dresses now that I’m chasing around my little toddler. There’s no possibility of unintended flashing, lol.

And I’m excited for this Clean fragrance! It’s supposed to smell like a night on the beach–sign me up! I love the Clean fragrance brand because they don’t test on animals. Clean’s philosophy of fragrances is that they smell like a pleasurable moment in life. His cool is that? I have a 5-piece roller ball set from Clean that is fantastic, of which my faves are Air and Rain. I believe Ultimate Beach Night is a limited edition fragrance, so if you love it, I’d order more.

Enjoy the summer! xoxo

a bit rusty for summer

Drawcord dress in rust (also in green).

Hello! Can you believe that summer officially starts next week? I am excited for my favorite season of the year! In anticipation for the summer weather, I just purchased this dress online and I can’t wait to try it on. The rust color and drawcord details caught my eye instantly. The dress looks far more expensive that its $89 price tag. It reminds me of Helmut Lang and his sculptural design. I love the rust color for summer, it will make a tan look more sunkissed and will really complement gold or white accessories. Plus it’s a cool cotton blend, machine washable and has pockets. All the good elements in one dress–yes.

I’m ready for ya, Summer 2018!
