Happy summer solstice, everyone! Summer will be my favorite season forever and always, but I'm more excited than usual as this is our first in Northern California. Beach days galore, the plundering of San Francisco's ~789 'world's best' dessert joints, impromptu weekday sunset drives.. the list of things to look forward to is practically endless! This post, though, packages all of my favorite everyday simpler summer pleasures- an abundance of blooms at every turn in the neighborhood, a breezy and light summer dress, trespassing of said neighbors' gardens.. y'know, the usual. ;)
This light-as-air ivory dress is made by a Buffalo-based brand I discovered just before I left the city, called Once And For All clothing. The collection is full of minimalistic, yet timelessly trendy and luxurious, pieces that I had a hard time choosing from. Eventually, the bell sleeves and the relaxed fit tipped the scales in favor of this pretty number! Plus, it doesn't hurt that a classic white dress makes the perfect canvas to add statement accessories to, such as oversized retro sunnies and a darling floral bag that I borrowed from the OG tastemaker- my mom. :)
*Just a note- the dress does run a bit large, especially if you're smaller framed like myself, so be sure to size down.
