easy breezy

Spring break is on the mind (more so, I should say, the fact that this is the first year I don’t get one…) and I’ve been daydreaming of sandy floors and sunsets over the ocean nonstop. I fell so in love with this little number from last week’s spring break inspiration board, that when I stumbled across it in stores the other day, I couldn’t help but pick it up. No… I’m not heading anywhere warm, but this cute $23 off-the-shoulder sundress is sure helping me forget that!


DRESS   off the shoulder patterned dress (wearing xs, under $25!)  |   SHOES   strappy platform heels (also love this color)  |   CLUTCH   straw clutch (perfect for summer!)   |   NECKLACE   akola project necklace   |   BRACELET   gold wrap bracelet

Coincidentally enough, I managed to photograph this on quite the dreary day in Dallas. (Apparently rain is on the forecast all week. Tisk, tisk weatherman!) So while this look more than brightens up a dark day, I can’t imagine how cute it would look in the sunshine!

You may also notice a new addition… these beautiful platform heels! I scored them on sale last week after having eyed them for a while, and am absolutely smitten. Believe it or not, they’re actually comfortable. Took them out for a spin on Friday night, and managed to walk all around a really fun part of town (the bishop arts district, for those of you familiar with Dallas) without breaking a sweat. So excited for this summer sandal!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and is looking forward to the week ahead. Like I said above, rain is on the forecast for it’s entirety, so I’m crossing my fingers for a few pockets of sunshine! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!
