Ruffle Wrap Dress
There's nothing like warm, breezy nights by the ocean and getting dressed up for a delicious dinner (the more seafood, the better) after long, sunny days on the beach. I know I've said it in every blog post I've shared this week, but wow, I miss the beach.
For our last night in Seaside, I wore this striped ruffle wrap dress for dinner at my favorite spot on 30A: Bud and Alley's. I spotted this dress here a few days before my trip, and I loved the look of it online. However, when it came in I was a little unsure about the fit. It was one of those pieces that just didn't fit or look quite as I expected in person (lesson learned: size down in this brand). My first thought was to send it back but the longer I had it on, the more it grew on me. After asking for y'all's opinion on my Insta story and receiving a resounding "yes," I decided to ultimately keep it... and I'm so glad I did! It ended up being one of my favorite outfits from the whole week!
The designer of this dress is one that has caught my eye recently and makes a lot of other pretty budget friendly pieces under $100. This, this, and these are a few more of my favorites from The Fifth Label. See more below.
