DAY TO NIGHT: EASY SUMMER DRESS
SHOP THE POST
Happy Monday, dolls! I hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend was filled with Mini and Hubs time, and I absolutely loved it. I am traveling this week from Wednesday to Saturday (brutal), so I was soaking in every single minute. We started the weekend at Chez Fon Fon, one of our favorite French restaurants. Yes, we took Asher! I am sure people thought we were crazy, but he did great. We went really early, and honestly, the kid doesn’t know any different. We have made a conscious effort to take him to restaurants with us, so he learns how to act and enjoy the things we enjoy. I posted the whole experience on SNAPCHAT (follow us!), so if you follow me, you were able to see how hilarious (and cute) he was being. And if you don’t follow, then you are missing out on lot’s of annoying #foodpics and cute videos of Asher. On Saturday morning, Ryan and I had some Mini-free time together. We worked out at Iron Tribe (I beat him, by the way, which is my life goal), got smoothies at Sprout & Pour, and just hung out for awhile. Afterwards, the 3 of us ate lunch at Bottega (our fav) and just played the rest of the day. We were seriously fat kids all weekend! On Sunday, we ate at Alabama Biscuit company. Ryan cooked us an amazing lunch, and then we had dinner at his parents’ house to celebrate Ryan’s brother’s bday. Steak and the most amazing potatoes for the WIN. Maybe I should be a food blogger.
It really was an awesome weekend, and as we inch closer and closer to Wednesday, I can’t help to get a little sad. I LIVE for Friday’s after work and Saturday mornings with my boys, so I will be missing them oh so much this week. And next week…I am celebrating a birthday!!!!!!!! I will be 25 for the 10th year in a row. I mean, can you believe that??? Anyways,now onto the FASHION…I am taking you from DAY TO NIGHT with this adorable Milly SUMMER DRESS!
BUT FIRST, I’M GIVING AWAY MORE MONEY
I am hosting ANOTHER Nordstrom Giveaway. This time an $800 gift card is up for grabs, just in time for the Nordstrom #NSALE. Scroll to the bottom of this article to enter! Also, don’t forget to enter my other Nordstrom Giveaway here ($500 gift card) AND my secret giveaway on Insta. Lastly, I crafted a very detailed How To Shop the Nodstrom Anniversary Sale past last week. You can really utilize this sale to purchase Christmas gifts, birthday/anniversary gifts, baby stuff, etc, so make sure you check out my post prior to the 14th to get the most out of the best sale of the year.
DAY TO NIGHT
I am CONSTANTLY on the lookout for outfits that can be worn from DAY TO NIGHT. Now that it is beyond hot, dresses are super easy to pull this off. I want to wear jeans all the time, but let’s be honest. It is just TOO. DAMN. HOT. Milly makes the CUTEST dresses. Her stuff is made right here in the USA, and the fabrics feel wonderful. I love the capped sleeves on this little frock, as well as the length. Short enough to show some leg, but not too short to wear during the day. In effort to edge up all things girly, I added my fav ASOS choker ($8.50 y’all) and my pointy toe Rachel Zoe pumps (on sale!). For daytime, you could pair this dress with sneakers or even some flat espadrilles. I am showing you both looks via flatlay below. (Because let’s be honest, I was not organized to make this happen during my photoshoot, and it was literally 105 degrees outside.)
And guess what guys? This Milly dress is MAJORLY ON SALE. I am linking to both Off Saks (60% off) and Shopbop (50% off), so you have enough sizes to choose from. The dress is still not super inexpensive, but remember price per wear. I have LIVED in this dress, and I know you will too! FIT TIP: If you are larger busted, order UP on this dress. I normally wear a 0 in Milly, but I went up to a 4 in this dress. It is tight around the bust fo sho.
AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST…there are two major sales going on tomorrow. AMAZON PRIME DAY is tomorrow only, and SHOPBOP has announced a secret designer sale offering 25% off all designer sale merchandise using the code DESIGNER25 at checkout. This sale ends Wednesday, July 13th. I realize there is a LOT going on, but I want to make sure you are aware of allllllll sales.
