If you know me, you know this outfit sums up my summer style in one look- ruffles, blue and white stripes, and statement earrings. Although my closet is probably filled with enough ruffle dresses at this point, I could not resist adding one more to my summer wardrobe, especially considering the under $100 price of this one. I saw this dress on Shopbop months ago but it sold out super fast, so I was super excited when it came back in stock just a couple weeks before my beach trip (still available in all sizes here)!
This little ruffle dress was the perfect thing to slip on for dinner with my family in Seaside at one of our favorite beachside restaurants, Bud and Alleys. I paired the striped dress with these lace up espadrilles (I have basically lived in these the past two summers), this clutch, ombre statement earrings (similar), and my MICHELE watch.
I'm missing the beach this week but am really looking forward to next week's trip somewhere new- Boston! If you have any tips for restaurants, shops, or places I should visit in the area, let me know! We have a few things planned already, but I love hearing your suggestions. Y'all always give the best recommendations, and I couldn't be more grateful! :)
Also, one last thing! Don't forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on, and there are lots of great items left on major sale! You can see my full guide to the sale and my top sale picks in every category here!
