black & white

Most situations in life aren’t black and white, but when it comes to deciding whether or not to add this dress to your closet? Seems pretty clear to me! Once I heard my sister say “It looks like Free People!” I knew I was onto something good. The same kinda look, but a whole different price tag, people… just $52!

DRESS   sun & shadow dress (just $52!)   |   SHOES   black espadrilles (old, similar linked)   |   CLUTCH   straw clutch (sold out, similar linked)   |   LIPSTICK   mod pink   |   SUNGLASSES   black ray ban aviators

This is one of those perfect-for-ever-occasion pieces you’ll be reaching for all summer. Be careful that you’re the only one doing the reaching, though… my sister has already tried one abduction!

Word to the wise – the style of this dress is boho and relaxed. As such, the back runs pretty low! I decided to tie up my straps at the back of my neck for more of a petite-friendy look. It would also look darling with a bralette!

P.S. If you missed yesterday’s post, don’t forget that the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is still going on! Through June 5th, exactly. Best wishes for snatching up some good stuff!

P.S. With all this talk of dresses, I wanted to let you know of an AMAZING sale going on! One of my favorite lines, Parker, is offering 25% off ALL DRESSES with the code 25OFFDRESSES. I love Parker for their beautiful, quality designs. They’re on the higher end, price-wise, so 25% off makes for some incredible savings! I’m debating between this blue beauty and this white frock. Which do you think?
