tropical state of mind

is it just me, or has summer seemingly flown
by? i swear the beginning of june was just yesterday!
working, traveling, babysitting, blogging,
and spending time with family and friends keeps
a girl busy. i am ready to rewind and simply enjoy
a few extra weeks (or months) of sunshine.
have you kept busy, too?
disclosure: shop stevie with candace and katie graciously provided me with
the dress pictured in this post. as per usual, all opinions are my own!

my favorite part of summer fashion? the bold,
colorful prints! this 'aloha' leaf print dress, by shop stevie
is no exception. i love the mix of red and green, 
a combination not typical of summer;
however, the vibrant colors compliment one another. 
the black background of this print
made the dress easy to style with open-toed
mules and a chic, black and white clutch.
the bell sleeves on this dress are also a fun addition.

the modest length and style of this dress
make it the perfect summer piece for a variety of
occasions. wear it to work with mules or ballet
flats, or to the beach with flip flops. you can
easily dress this look up with heels and a
necklace or other accessories. wherever your summer
plans take you, this dress will keep you feeling
cool and looking stylish!
next up on the summer to do list?
moving, moving, moving.
i don't know if there is anything worse?
between the purging and the packing, 
my bedroom and closet are a nightmare.
i am grateful for effortless outfits like this
that require little brain power (or accessories 
since the majority of my jewelry, jackets, and purses
are currently in trash bags in my living  room). 

once i am settled in my new place, 
however, i plan to celebrate the end of summer
with another trip to my cabin, walks around the 
lake, and as much ice cream as i can handle!

clutch and rings: forever 21, mules: tj maxx,
bangles: urban outfitters

'i hope that every woman wearing my pieces,
young or old, will feel beautiful and confident
about themselves.'

these adorable booties and this dress for fall.
