Navy Eyelet

Navy eyelet dress

There’s something so easy and mindless about an eyelet dress…it’s both a blank canvas to be dressed up or down, and also works well on its on for the days when you just don’t want to to think. So I’m excited to share this pretty navy number with you guys today–I’ve worn it to work and snapped these photos before dinner with friends on Saturday night (we went to The Smith, which has become one of my favs! The burger and s’mores in a jar are great, as are all the cocktails!)

My First OTS Top

Happy Tuesday, friends! Did you guys have a nice long weekend? We spent most of Saturday and Sunday painting the living room (in this pretty white/gray) and I’m so happy the blue walls are GONE! The plan was to do the bedroom, too, but we totally underestimated what it would be like to paint a very small space with all the furniture still in it. Unfortunately we weren’t able to paint before moving in, so a lot of time this weekend was spent rearranging things and trying not to fall on top of the television while balancing on a stepladder. The job isn’t perfect, but it looks good and I do think we learned a lot. Next time (for the bedroom, perhaps) I’m hoping we can have a friend who’s done this a few times give us some tricks to a) speed things up and b) avoid some of those streaky spots. Thank goodness for gallery walls ;)

My Favorite Summer Dress

Persifor Riveria dress

We’re definitely in sandals and shift dress season (time to re-break in all our favorite sandals, ugh!) and I’m so excited to share this outfit with you guys because it features what is hands down my favorite summer dress, ever. Not only is it blue + white, but it’s also a shift, which is pretty much the most flattering and forgiving silhouette–the most comfortable when the temperatures and humidity rise. It’s safe to say that I’m pretty much obsessed, and I’d imagine may of you are, too!
