The other day I shared a few of my favorite stores I love to shop at on 30a (see this post), and today I want to add one more "must stop shop" to that list: Ophelia! Ophelia has several locations on 30a but the one I shop at most often is the Seaside location. It's tucked away behind Heavenly's Shortcakes & Ice Cream and is the cutest beach/swim shop. Ophelia carries so many of my favorite swim and beachwear brands like Solid & Striped, Mikoh, Vitamin A, Splendid, and more. In addition to swimwear, they also carry pretty dresses and everyday wear as well.
Over the past few months, Faithfull the Brand has been repeatedly catching my eye. They design lots of pretty printed dresses and matching sets that can be dressed up or down, and most styles are under $200. When I stopped in Ophelia, I was really excited to see lots of Faithfull the Brand pieces in their store!
This green striped dress immediately popped out at me, and when I tried it on I was sold. One thing to note: I do think that this dress runs a bit small. I usually wear an XS but am wearing a M in this dress. It was the last size Ophelia had in stock so I didn't have another size to compare it to, but I would think that the XS and S sizes may be a bit shorter and tighter around the top. One other thing: on Revolve and Nordstrom's sites, the photos show the model wearing the dress off the shoulder but the straps can definitely be worn both ways! I preferred to wear them on my shoulders but think the off the shoulder look is super cute too!
