School’s Out for Summer

patterned sundressWayf dress / Nordstrom backpack (love this onethis one, and this Michael Kors version) / Halogen studded flats / gold triangle necklace (very similar)

Though I’m not in school anymore, this time of year always reminds me of the immense rush I felt — the excitement of the start of summer and being able to spend every day outside swimming, playing sports, going to the beach, hiking, or simply taking it all in. I attended college at the beach, and I would take two summer classes simply so that I would be able to enjoy my summer near the water. Because everyone had the same idea, almost all of my closest friends would do the same — those were absolutely the best summers of my life!

I discovered this Wayf dress at Nordstrom and am loving the contrasting colors and v-neck fit. It’s a perfect casual dress, but it’s also appropriate for the office under a blazer or cardigan. I love offsetting a feminine piece with some cool accessories, so I paired it with my Nordstrom backpack and favorite Halogen studded flats.

  2. So many people don’t understand how much a GREAT accessory/accessories can really do for an outfit. I love this and am definitely going to be looking to create a very similar look!

  3. I wish I went to college at the beach! I’ve been on Summer for a month and a half already and it’s exciting, but none of my friends are here. I’m jealous of what you had!
    That dress is so pretty though! Wayf is such a great quality brand at a really good price!
