Striped Maxi Love Affair

I think I’m in love… with a dress. It just happened spontaneously one day walking through my *first* love, T.J. Maxx: we were moving with purpose toward the register with a couple of household and Luna items, and the long white and navy striped dress caught my eye and we just had to be together.



Ok, so it’s not that serious, but I am definitely living in this dress for the rest of the summer. It’s the perfect length to wear with sandals on the weekend, and it’s definitely on my list for things to pack for Spain! Did I mention I’m going to Spain with my bestie at the end of August?! I’m so excited!!

This dress also fits into the “I can wear this without a bra” category of pieces that I’m slowly collecting. Especially with this July heat, it’s so nice to be able to throw on something comfortable and breezy, without feeling exposed.

I’ve been going for a “barely there” look on my face this summer too – my staples have been a mix of Murad and Rodan + Fields skin products (I’ve also been applying R + F Lash Boost at night, which I swear has already lengthened and thickened my lashes in just two months!), Glossier’s Boy Brow to define my brows, and various shades of Bare Minerals Gen Nude lip color.

My summer motto is “less is more,” and the moral of this story is I love the way this dress looks, but I love the way it makes me feel even more.
