If you caught my Instagram Story try on session Monday, you’ll most likely remember this darling bow strap ruffle dress! Why? Because it was my very favorite of the whole haul.

Just look at it! So much feminine goodness in one fun frock. I adore the ruffles (they make such a statement in the profile view) and hello picture perfect bows.

Perhaps my favorite detail about this dress is the fabric. It’s no fuss, and stiff enough so that the bows are incredibly easy to tie. You don’t have to worry about flop or frump with them! I also thought I’d mention that you can tie these straps high or low… which means this dress is great for short and tall girls alike!

I already have earmarked this as a dress I’ll be bringing along on my family trip to Seaside, Florida later this summer. For all you brides out there, you know you need it as well! :)

Yesterday evening I packed up and made the three-hour road trip down to Austin, Texas! I’m so excited to be back in this city for a fun photo shoot that’s coming your way on Monday. Whenever I visit ATX, I always stay with one of my very best friends, Amanda! We have a sleepover and it feels like we’re in college again… miss those days!

Love from Texas,
