One Shoulder Ruffle Dress + A Travel Update

Dress: Bloomingdales | Shoes (under $50): Sam Edelman | Purse: Sam Edelman | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

Hi friends! I’ve been a little MIA around here since I dropped my big news. Did you see it?! If not, you can find out all about my 4 big life changes going on here. I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet because there is a lot to come in the next few weeks and I don’t want to burn you out. That being said, I wanted to give a little update on my travel plans. I guess I should say OUR travel plans because mama decided to crash the party and so it has now turned into a mother-daughter trip!

Our first stop of the trip is a short one to Boston for less than 24 hours and then we are headed to Nantucket for two days. From there we are flying to Copenhagen! After a crazy few days at New York Fashion Week, I can’t wait to relax and sight see in Massachusetts as it is my first time here. If you have any recommendations for us, please send them my way!

On to this dress because it’s a great one for Nantucket and the beach. If I wasn’t already sold on the stripes, it has pockets and the most flattering one shoulder. Sam Edelman got me on a yellow kick after sending me this bag. It might be the high school hero in me but I always seem to pair yellow and blue together, especially when it comes to nautical blue stripes.

I will be keeping to my usual Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule on the blog and if you want to see more of my travels, don’t forget to follow along on Instagram. Make sure to check back here on Friday for a sneak peak of all of my outfits that I took to New York Fashion Week!

Not Your Everyday Stripes

Top: Chicwish | Skirt: Nordstrom | Shoes: Sam Edelman

How this top has not made it’s way to the blog yet, I am honestly not sure. The amount of times that I have worn it since it arrived would definitely tell you that I got my money’s worth and then some! I have worn it to work with cropped pants, to the beach as seen here and even as a cover up. Y’all the possibilities are endless.

I was a little skeptical that it might look like I had hit up my grandma’s closet for my newest OOTD (outfit of the day) obsession, but to my surprise I have received more compliments on this shirt than any other piece of clothing that I have owned. Even several of the guys at work had something to say about this shirt and that is saying a lot! Don’t worry I did not tie it up and show my midriff to the entire office 😉

If I had a dollar for every striped piece of clothing that I owned, let’s just say I could buy a lot more striped clothing! It’s a bit ridiculous but stripes just have a sense of safety to them that will always exist. Since I am constantly buying stripes, finding something that I don’t already have something similar to is a challenge. Ways that I have ventured out are finding different cuts (peplum, button down, tank top, etc) or modifications such as embroidery, cut outs, bows or anything a little extra.

If you are anything like me and constantly gravitate towards stripes of any shape, size or form, this top is for you! Some other stripes that I have been loving lately are linked below for you. Simply click on any of the pictures to shop them!

I have also teamed up with some blogger buddies of mine to host a fun link up party so you can see other blogs and make other blogging friends! See below.
