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?

Floral Tassel Tie Maxi Dress

 Dress: ‘Like the Sea’ dress c/o Sweetest Stitch // Necklace: Bauble Bar (get 30% off with code ‘RSJULY’ // Bag: Sole Society// Shoes: Dolce Vita // Sunnies: Ray-Ban ‘Erika’ // 

 Confession. I have worn this Sweetest Stitch dress too many times since receiving it. When I don’t know what to wear, I automatically pick this dress out of my closet. I’m not sure if it’s the print, or the open back and tassel tie or the absolutely perfect flowy fit, but it seems to fit the bill for just about any and every occasion. This was how I styled it for date night with E…wedges, and simple jewelry. I styled it for running errands a few days later by pairing it with a lacey bralett and my favorite gladiator sandals. This will definitely be going with me and E and I’s mini-moon in August!
