the white one shoulder midi & boater hat

summery whites.

nothing says summer like a casual white dress. they easily go with sandals -- heel/wedge or flat. but more importantly, they go with STRAW HATS. which.. if you haven't noticed... are my thing lately! yes, i've raved about @gigipip and this is their adjustable boater hat #itsperfect. specifically, this dress has the prettiest pleated detail at the top and a very elegant cinched waist that is tied in the back or side, oh and it has pockets! but it does have to be ironed -- FYI. #aintnobodygottimeforthat!

fact: i'm actually on the shy side. i really don't like being in front of the camera. #shocker. i would much rather be behind the camera but unfortunately, this fashion blog wouldn't exist with my name if i didn't actually "model" the clothes (using the term model veryyyy loosely there). that said, this was a really fun shoot. my first time shooting with Steven, who suggested a ton of different "poses" completely out of my comfort zone. it reminded me of what i've done to make myself feel uncomfortable every step of the way to have this site. basically, i laughed the whole way through, making a fool of myself, per usual = #goodtimes.

side ramblings: the @nordstrom anniversary sale kicks off this week to cardholders and it is one of the BIGGEST sales of the year for men and women! i will be attending some preview events by Nordstrom this week to get the inside scoop. so stay tuned!
