Sailing Away

This is pretty much a perfect summer dress. It's white, linen, and has a loose shape so it's not sticking to me when it's fifty billion degrees. Plus it's a sailor dress and it doesn't get better than that! I wore it to my family reunion last summer and I'm still enjoying it.

dress: forever 21
hat: h&m
shoes: xhileration - target
bracelet: great grandma collection






I'll be going up to Illinois for some family visiting time this week. I'm mentally preparing myself for the 12-hour car ride. Luckily we usually get Mexican food from this delicious hole-in-the-wall place right when we get there so I'm looking forward to that. I just can't believe we're this far into the summer already. I'm not ready to start grad school yet! I need more quality time with the couch and Netflix. I know, I have a rough life.

Happy Monday!

This dress is perfect. I love how nautical it is. It looks so good on you and have fun on your trip! What a long time to be in the car! Though road trips do have their benefits and fun.

I have that dress, too! You have good taste ;) (It was wayyy too short on me, though, so I had to have my sister let out the hem!)

I hope you have an awesome trip! 12 hours is long...make sure to bring lots of good music :)

You look very lovely with your sailor dress and it's good to have something for really hot days ready to wear!

I am looking for a perfect sailor dress for ages, most that I find are pretty but have a very thick fabric. Yours seems to be a perfect choice and I do hope to find something like this too.

Lovely greetings! Sara, xx

This dress is amazing. I have been wanting a sailor dress for ages myself. There is one on modcloth at the moment but I thought I'd better save the money rather than spend it. This dress suits you so well; it is reflective of your fun and playful style.

Your sailor dress is really cute -- can't believe it's from Forever 21 (I never seem to have the best luck there). Have fun visiting family!

I love the dress! I didn't think it was from Forever 21 though ahha! I was thinking the same thing the other day - where has this year gone? It's just gone by too quick haha! Hope you have a lovely week, and enjoy your trip to Illinois!
