a summer sunset

DRESS pink and orange ombre maxi dress (wearing XS, just $35!) | EARRINGS gold statement hoop earrings | CLUTCH rectangle straw clutch | SHOES espadrille platform heels

One of my favorite things about living in Florida? The incredible sunsets that take place nearly every night. We’re talking vibrant oranges, whispy pinks, deep reds… my favorite color scheme on one giant canvas. Such a dream!

Andrew and I love finishing dinner early to head out to our back porch and watch the colors deepen and change across the sky. That’s one tradition I’m excited to continue as temperatures begin to cool off in the coming months!

In the meantime, though, we’re still in full-on summer mode, and when I saw this stunning pink and orange ombre dress, it instantly reminded me of these southern sunsets I’ve come to love so much!

Y’all have heard me talk about my obsession with shopping online at Forever21 over and over. I love sifting through the huge, continually updated selection and coming across amazing, budget-friendly finds. This dress was one of those! And at just $35, it deserves a front-row seat to all of your sunset activities.

The belt is removable, and trust me when I say this maxi looks adorable without it as well! Plus, who doesn’t love a blousy, forgiving fit? I know I’m looking forward to styling it that way in Seaside this coming week! And while it isn’t lined, the fabric isn’t see-through whatsoever, making it a cool option for that crazy summer heat. So many things to love about it!

A couple other recent Forever21 finds I’m loving! This leopard dress I wore in California (and again last night!) and this red halter mini. Cute and oh-so-flattering for a date night, rehearsal dinner or function you have coming up!

Love from the Sunshine State,
