Striped & Scalloped

Holy cow, you guys. What a week! I just got back from Amsterdam on Tuesday afternoon and I’ve been crazily trying to catch back up on work ever since. Long story short, I found out on Monday of last week that I was going to Amsterdam and that I left approximately 48 hours after that on Wednesday afternoon. Such a whirlwind, but an opportunity of a lifetime to travel to a new country on my bucket list with a good friend of mine from college! I’ll chat more about Amsterdam soon, but for the meantime: Add it to your list if you haven’t been! It was so picturesque and we had the best time.

It’s no secret that navy blue and white is one of my all-time favorite color combinations! I couldn’t say no to this dress when I saw it… Especially because of the fun, scalloped cutaway on the back. I love any piece that seems simple, but has little added extras that give it a bit more personality!

It’s an easy dress to wear to just about everywhere in the summer… Weekend brunch, happy hour, an afternoon at the park, you name it. And just toss a jean jacket over the top if you’re in a workplace that allows! Perfect way to go from your desk to dinner. (Plus, it’s on sale now, too!)
