The Perfect Summer Dress

June 19, 2017

Happy Monday & (almost) Happy Summer!

We are officially to summer as it is supposed to be 95 degrees in Denver tomorrow. I know, Arizona peeps, my 95 degrees doesn't compare to your 120 degrees, but man alive, summer is here.

Yesterday, Adam and I were walking our pups and Lola got stung by a bee! It was the saddest thing ever. She wouldn't walk, so Adam had to carry her home and then by the time we got back, we were both sweating. Thanks summer! Oh and don't worry, Miss Lo is doing way better. After a little swelling and some benadryl, she's all back to normal.

Ps. Happy Father's Day to all you amazing fathers out there. Father's Day is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates two of my favorite humans in the world, my dad and my brother. They are the best examples of what a dad and husband should be. I'm so lucky to have them in my life. Shout-out also, to all my brothers-in-law and friends who are amazing dad too.

Keep raising those humans dads, you're doing a great job. 

Anyways, let's talk clothes.

This dress has made its Instagram debut and you guys have loved it! Thanks so much. It's seriously my favorite new dress. I would wear it everyday if I could, but I'm pretty sure my boss would object. If I didn't say it already, thanks for all the birthday love, you guys are the absolute best and sure know how to make a thirty year old girl feel damn good.

Thirty, so far, has been such a great year. Even if it's only been a week. I cannot wait for all the things thirty has to hold. Thanks for joining me on the ride.

This summer I'm pretty sure floral patterns and embroidery are going to be my favorites. I love the bright, bright colors. I don't keep up with trends very well, I just love what I love. But based on what I can buy out there, florals seem to be a hit.

And, hey, Arizona friends. This amazing gold leaf (red velvet) cake is from Ruze Cake House. They did our amazing wedding cake and have provided every cake and dessert for every party we've had since. They have gluten free options too AND they make the best macaroons in the world. Tell Jessi I sent you, she's the best.

Birthdays are the best, especially when they include gold cakes.

This dress is Shopbop and you can buy it here. It also comes in black, you can buy that option here. I know it's crazy, since black is my favorite color and all, but I am loving the white more than the black. Shocker, I know.

In case you want more options, I've rounded up some of my favorite summer dresses. And, in case you don't want to spend the money, I've linked some of my favorite Target ones too. These dresses are perfect for those warm summer nights, cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners and more. Summer shopping is my favorite. Thank goodness we've got at least 3 more months of warm.

Now, get to shopping! You know you wanna.

Isn't that blue one perfect for the fourth of july! Not that I'm already planning, or maybe I am.

Because he's the best.

Happy Monday friends! Here's hoping it's short.
