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?

Lace & Off the Shoulder

 Dress: c/o Chicwish  // Shoes: Dolce Vita ‘Nessah’ // Hat: Target // Sunnies: Ray-ban // 

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff  // 

 In all of the craziness the past month, I completely forgot to post these photos. Imagine my surprise, when scrolling through my computer files I stumble across these. Oops! Better late than never! 

You may have seen this dress make an appearance (or two…or three) on my instagram. It’s definitely been one of my favorites this summer because it is white (so bridal…remember this post?), lace and off the shoulder. 3 of my favorite things rolled in to one! Not to mention, it’s under $50!

This week’s blogger of the week from last week’s link-up is Sheree of Posh Classy Mom. Obviously I am obsessing over Sheree’s white crochet off the shoulder top. I love that she paired it with a navy hi-low skirt. Does she not look absolutely chic???

Okay! I probably know what you are thinking…another off the shoulder dress?! Guys, I am obsessed. I just can’t say no to a good off the shoulder dress, or top for that matter. And when it has ruffles?! It’s a must! This is my favorite trend this summer and I hope it’s one that stays around for a while!

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!
