introducing maison du maillot

DRESS   tiered eyelet dress   |   BAG   tassel basket bag   |   SHOES   nantucket sole slides

This morning, I’m trying (rather unsuccessfully) to come to terms with waking up to the dry heat and traffic of Dallas as opposed to the serene, salty air of Seaside, Florida. Oh friends, this past week at the beach was so needed, and just like all good things, it flew by in a flash! (How is it that no one has figured out how to slow down time yet?)

For those of you who are new around here, Seaside is the little beach town my family and I have been visiting each summer for the past ten years. It’s charming, pastel, slow-paced… the perfect spot to unwind and relax! Needless to say, we look forward to it all year long.

In preparation for the trip, I spend the first part of each summer shopping around for the cutest swimsuits and beach attire I can find. There’s something so fun about saving up for a few pretty pieces to wear during my favorite week! And this year, I was lucky enough to pack up a couple especially beautiful items from a new online beachwear destination I am thrilled to introduce you to, Maison du Maillot.

Maison du Maillot is an exquisitely curated collection of swimwear, sarongs, beautiful beach bags and every other piece you’d need for time spent by the sea. I love how unique the collection is, hosting everything from beach-to-dinner pieces like this easy, sea-foam maxi to this beautifully intricate one piece swimsuit. Better yet, Maison du Maillot offers free worldwide delivery and returns, making shopping a breeze!

The tiered eyelet dress I’m wearing in today’s post is far and away one of the most beautiful pieces in my closet. Paired with this delightfully colorful woven basket, the ensemble was perfect for our au revoir dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Café Thirty-A! And now that I’ve been introduced to this fun collection, I’m scheming of where I can wear this red beauty to next…

Whether you’re out at the beach, or back to work today like me, I’m wishing you a week filled with lots of fun! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Love from Texas,
