Dress (on sale)// Straw Tote



First of all, Happy July! Seriously, how is it July already? We are halfway through the summer and I can't believe it. Is it flying by for anyone else?! Anyway, this is the perfect dress to show off for the first day of July! 

Second of all, taking photos while it's majorly hot is a challenge with ice cream. Let's just say, ice cream in photos is a one time thing.... to save from making a mess and so I don't have to look at my ice cream for a while until I can actually start to eat it. But boy was it good. 

This dress is a favorite of mine this summer. I've worn it to brunch, to a bridal shower, running errands, and to work. It's kind of a 'one dress, any event' kind of thing... which I love. It's also now on sale. The fabric is a cotton sateen, so while it's casual, you can definitely dress it up.  I wear it with Jacks sometimes, but also think it looks nice with heeled sandals or wedges like in the photos above. 

This straw tote is massive and under $40! Definitely large enough to tote all of your pool and beach essentials. It's also great for carrying when you need a sweater and a change of shoes (aka what I needed when this was photographed). Have a fabulous day!

Very cute dress but unfortunately a bit too pricey for me, lol.

Love your outfits!
