Little Blue Dress + Dealing with Grief

 Dress: c/o Shein // Hat: David & Young via Nordstroms  // Boots: BP ‘Trolley’ Ankle Booties // Bag: Sole Society – old (linked similar options below!) // 

 So I’m posting this little blue dress today, and I could tell you about how much I adore it and how well it fits, like I had planned, but I just erased all of that because I have to share what’s really on my mind.

This weekend, my family’s sweet dog, Bentley, was hit by a car and he did not make it. My family has been absolutely devastated by the loss of him. Isn’t it crazy how a little animal can make such an impact on your life? I know it may seem silly, but he truly was a family member. He had the best personality and I am going to miss him so much. I feel broken hearted over knowing I won’t see his sweet underbite or big brown eyes again and am repeatedly going over “what if” scenarios in my mind. I know that I am just grieving and that eventually I won’t feel this terrible sadness, but it’s so hard!! All dog’s go to Heaven, right?

Have any of you lost a pet? Any tips for dealing with the grief of losing your furry, 4-legged friend?

iboteak Embroidered Dress

 Dress: Embroidered Tassel Dress c/o iboteak // Boots: Sam Edelman ‘Paige’ Fringed Ankle Booties in Putty Suede (one of my #nsale picks!) // Hat: Mott 50 ‘Giselle’ c/o  //
 Bag: Tory Burch ‘Perry tote’ c/o // Ring: Kendra Scott //

My obsession with this iboteak dress is slightly out of control. I have turned it into a ‘wear for every occasion’ type piece and have repurposed it as a dress, top, swimsuit coverup…you name it! You know when you find a piece of clothing that’s almost too good to be true and you want to literally wear it ALL of the time?! That is this dress! It has the perfect flowy fit, gauzy lightweight fabric, embroidered detailing and to top it off…tassels! I can’t wait to wear this in the fall with black leggings and OTK boots! Eek! I am almost wishing it was cool enough to wear it like that now!

Embroidered Off the Shoulder Dress

 Dress: c/o Chicwish (comes in three colors!) // Sandals: Dolce Vita // Bag: Sole Society// Sunnies: Ray-ban ‘Erika’ // Hat: Target // Necklace: Bauble Bar 

This dress has quickly become one of my go to’s! With the ridiculously hot weather we’ve been having, I’ve been opting for light-weight, airy pieces. This dress is the perfect summer dress as it meets all of those requirements! I am in love with the off the shoulder trend and how easy to wear this dress is! The embroidery is adorable, but what really sold me was the light-weight cotton that makes this dress the ultimate 100 degree day dress! This dress currently comes in 3 colors, and I am definitely thinking purchasing one in each would be an investment!
