Roses & Pearls

Every summer I pretty much end up wearing the same dress after awhile and this summer, this black embroidered dress is the one. I found it on Amazon (!!!) and am completely obsessed with the red rose design embroidered on the top and bottom. It's a simple dress with deceptively elaborate detailing, like the criss cross neckline, so you literally just throw it on and look put together. I wore my favorite mirrored sunglasses and also slipped on leather platform sandals to dress up the whole look without going overboard.

Summer Stripes (& Ruffles)

After 4 painful, exhausting years, my laptop finally gave up on life a week ago. Which to be completely honest, is a pretty impressively long time for any electronic device to survive with me (just ask all the phones I've destroyed over the years) but also meant I kept putting off writing any new posts. Until today!! My laptop is still being repaired but I realized I should post my summer outfit pictures before, you know, summer's over. 

So here's my latest summer outfit, brought to you via my sister's laptop (thanks Christine)! I've been feeling a lot more comfortable with my appearance since being more careful about what I eat & making sure to exercise, so I've started shopping more again. I'm obsessed with this new white ruffled off the shoulder top from H&M and loved how it looked with my comfy black and white striped pants, last worn on my trip to Cabo! Definitely a fun summertime look, perfect for a day with friends or a nice weekend brunch.
