Summer of Style | 05

Hey hey, happy hump day friends! (We’re still saying hump day, right?!) I’m currently caffeine-loading for the busy and exciting day ahead…I’ll be hitting my local Nordstrom store at 8am for a full day of flushing out all the cutest and best finds from the Anniversary Sale before it launches tomorrow!

I’ve got my game plan and a bag of snacks…start in shoes (#priorities), then it’s bags and jewelry before heading upstairs to scour all the Women’s clothes, from work and weekend wear, to pajamas and athletic gear. My goal is not to share every last piece, but only the ones I’d bring home for myself.

Of course I’ll be including sizing info and fit tips, so be sure to check here first thing tomorrow if you’re shopping the Pre-Sale. And if you’re not an Anniversary Sale shopper, don’t worry, I’ve got other content planned throughout the month, too! (See my full Q & A post about the NSale here.)

Starting with today’s fun new outfit in the Summer of Style series, featuring the cutest ric rac dress!


Ric Rac Maxi Dress | Straw Tote (look for less!) | Slide Sandals | Tassel Earrings | Sunglasses | Bracelet | Thumb Ring | Lip Color: Claudia | Nail Polish: Pink Agate

You know a dress is a keeper if it makes you dance every time you put it on! And this is definitely a dancing dress! It’s likely intended to be a midi dress, but it makes a perfect maxi for my 5’4″ frame, but with no hemming required!

It’s a thick linen-blend and fully lined, with a fun ruffled hem and sturdy ric rac trim. The tie belt is removable, but I love any chance to accentuate the waist.

Fit Tip: It’s true to size, but if you’re in-between I’d recommend going down one. I’m wearing a regular 0.

I love the playful vibe with punchy pinks for Summer, but the dress is also chic when paired with more classic and glam accessories. So cute with a jean jacket for chillier evenings, too.

My love for ric rac goes waaaay back, and this fun dress is no exception. The black and white makes it the perfect base for wearing with any favorite color, so it’s incredibly versatile. Are you ric rac obsessed, too? I hope you’re enjoying this Summer of Style series…see more inspiration here.

See you back here bright and early for all the NSale fun, lovebugs!
