Summer Stripes + Mini Life Update

Summer stripes and a mini life update. Does it get better than that? Maybe, maybe not but you're probably wondering where I have been. I'll get to that soon, promise.

Summer is one of my favorite seasons of the year, it actually comes a close second to winter but only slightly. I love summertime because of the abundance of fresh fruit and all day everyday beach days. In a world where it may be too easy to get caught up in tiny little squares on the internet, its nice to put the phone down, take a step back, and enjoy real life. If you've noticed, I haven't been as active here on the blog these past few weeks as I usually am, call it blogger burnout if you wish. With summertime here, I decided to take a little unplanned break, sharing a post or two occasionally over my break to enjoy spending time with family and be in the moment, summer vibes strong. Sometimes it's so important to take a small step back to just breath, reenergize and come back strong. After this little unplanned break I am happy to announce that I am back, feeling incredibly refreshed and ready to share some pretty exciting content I've been scheming and planning during my time off. I'm telling you, I'm so excited to share and you're going to LOVE it!

There's just something so magical about taking a little break to clear your mind and get those creative juices flowing again. Coming back I feel invigorated and so creative again! HUGE thanks to YOU for being so patient while I was away for just a little bit. What truly makes me happy is sharing my daily inspirations and of course, all things pretty with you. Going forward I want to keep making content that is original and beautiful, content that you want to see and enjoy.

Today, I wanted to share this pretty little navy and white striped off the shoulder dress with the cutest flutter sleeves. Isn't it so cute, classy, and perfect for a date night out at the beach? I love it! It's also super comfy and pairs so well with neutral accessories (which are always my favorite). Have you heard the stigma that horizontal stripes may make you look bigger? Well, that's so NOT true! You can definitely pull of horizontal stripes and this dress is a great example. This dress is actually flattering because it hugs all the right curves, giving off a very feminine silhouette. And those flutter sleeves only amp up the feminine factor, such a cute touch! 


Summertime stripes are such a great classic for summer. Well, they're actually a great staple for any season really but it really depends on the garment it's on that makes it season appropriate. For summer, I would encourage a cute striped dress that is figure flattering and hugs all the right places, just like this effortlessly chic one I'm wearing today.

Thank you so much for the continued support and for taking a few minutes of your day to stop by. It truly means the world!
