serena & lily apparel

it's pretty much my dream to be able to deck out my home in serena & lily everything. the bedding, furniture, and decor all have a fresh and relaxed vibe to them. earlier this year they launched their first women's capsule collection, and it's safe to say i want one of everything.

the silhouettes are simple, structured, and the perfect blank canvas for accessorizing with your favorite jewelry or shoes. as much as a i love little white dresses (like the edie trapeze dress or june party dress), it's the alice party dress that has my heart. i can't resist a good blue and white printed dress!

lightweight dresses have been my go-to over the past few weeks. i don't have many summery dresses right now, but i have a wish list that's a mile long, and this madewell number is right at the top!

{one: madewell embroidered stitchtake dress} white + blue = i'm in love {two: m.gemi novella sandal} i just got these in nude and they're beautiful! now i want them in every color... {three: nordstrom cat eye sunglasses} such a chic and feminine shape–and you can't beat that price! {four: loeffler randall tassel nappa leather tote} tassels are so popular this summer, and loeffler randall has some adorable tassel sandals too {five: butter london fiver nail polish} mint nail polish is one of my favorite summer colors {six: gorjana set of 3 rings} i'm really into stacked rings right now {seven: judith jack rings & things stack} this ring gives the appearance of several separate bands, but it's actually all one piece!

cuyana weekender bag
peasant top + denim shorts
cuyana weekender bag

if there's one thing i'm looking forward to this summer, it's a few weekend trips to the beach. just being by the coast immediately relaxes me and makes me so happy (i know i'm not the only one!). cuyana recently sent me their aptly-named weekender bag. it's the perfect size for a quick trip away from home.

what sets this bag apart from other travel bags i've used is the quality. the construction and materials are truly top-notch! although the bag is fairly large, it's extremely lightweight and reinforced with leather in all the right places. i also love that i have the option to hold it by the handles or clip on the leather strap and sling it over my shoulder.

it's safe to say that this bag is going to be getting plenty of use this summer and on many trips to come!

disclosure: although cuyana was kind enough to send me their weekender bag, all thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

sweet summer dresses

summertide swing dress
cutwork shift dress
tillie shirtdress
amara dress

i'm sorry that it's been a little quiet around here lately. i recently started doing some consultant work full-time and i'm still working on creating a schedule for this blog! next week, things will be up and running again :)

i did want to pop in, however, and share these dresses! i've made a few too many trips to anthropologie over the past few weeks and the dresses keep getting better and better. as much as i love my jeans, there's nothing better than wearing a fun and flowy dress during the summer (and pairing it with cute strappy sandals!).

i picked up the embroidered shirtdress above over mother's day weekend when it was marked down an additional 20% off. i can already tell it's going to be one of my go-to dresses over the next few months. i'll have to share some pictures of it on here soon!

you can shop these dresses and a few of my other favorites below!
