Meet my new favorite dress for summer! Last month when I visited my new blogger friends in West Palm Beach, I knew I just had to wear my button front dress from Old Navy! It’s the perfect dress for any warm-weather travel destination. I bought it as a present to myself to wear on my Birthday. It’s always been a tradition of mine to make the day feel even more special!
I need to do a recap of all the pretty photos I took in West Palm Beach! That’s where we shot these outfit photos! There’s colorful buildings and flowers everywhere! When I met up with Emily and Hailey, our goal was to shoot a few outfit photos in fun WPB locations. Thanks to Hailey for knowing her way around and being our guide!
I drove up on a Sunday afternoon, we shot photos for a few hours (4 to be exact), then ate a delish taco dinner because we were wiped! Photos are hard work! And I get so cranky when I’m that hungry! Then I drove back home right after since it’s only a 2 hours drive from Melbourne. I hope to go back for a girls weekend to explore
Every summer I feel like it’s truly my time to shine. I just love summer styles, including dresses! Really though, I just want to shop shop shop right now and buy all the cute coastal summer items! When I’m not wearing shorts or a swimsuit, you will always catch me wearing a super comfortable and lightweight dress! Last year button front dresses were super popular and I was hitting myself for not purchasing any! As soon as I saw that Old Navy had a really affordable option in April, I jumped on that! I’m wearing a size small and it fits perfectly!
One thing that is so hard about the retail world is that clothing items sell out way to fast. I bought this dress a little over a month ago and it’s only available in black now. The great thing is that these dresses are popular and I was able to find two super very similar options from brands I love here and here. Old Navy also has a cute chambray button front dress and this style that comes in yellow and rose. Both are under $25!
Hanging out with other fashion blogger friends is so much fun! There’s loads of creativity around every corner! When we found this perfect spot that had the perfect amount of shade, sun and pretty flowers, I threw all my stuff on the ground including my straw bag to start shooting Hailey. We had a few options for straw bags and while Hailey and I were busy, Emily had set up our purses on the ledge. It’s probably one of my favorite photos ever and just makes me happy! They all spark joy!
My Castaner espadrilles were a bit of a splurge and something I bought when I was teaching last year. They are truly the only type of “heel” I ever want to wear anymore. If you’re looking for the perfect summer espadrille to wear to summer BBQ’s, with all your pretty dresses and on every tropical vacation, this is the shoe you want! You can find them in a bunch of colors but of course, the yellow ones are my favorite! Wearing a size 40EU with the 60 height.
