Summer Florals

Summer Florals 1Happy weekend, loves! I think a nice sweet ice cream cone is in order. This has been probably the most stressful week since the start of my internship and I am just glad that it’s the weekend. Time to kick back and relax! Speaking of kicking back and relaxing–T-minus 1 week until the end of this internship…and I jetset off to Asia! (More details to come, follow my Instagram for my travel reveal!)

So anyway, I shot this look from a little bit ago, back when I was down in the gorgeous beach town of Cape May. I wasn’t entirely sure that I could pull off such a bright green floral dress, but when I saw how colorful the whole town was, I knew I’d fit right in!

Summer Florals 3This has definitely gotten to be one of my favorite summer dresses–the brightly patterned florals are perfect for a nice summer day. This is definitely a look perfect for almost any summer endeavor, from a quick stop at the ice cream truck, to picnics in the park and backyard barbecues!

Summer Florals 6With such a playful and busy print, keeping the accessories more neutral is a good idea. This little mini cross body is definitely my go-to now, especially since the woven straw design immediately reminds me of summer! It’s big enough for all my essentials–a card holder case, phone, keys, with a little extra room for a pair of sunglasses.
