RUFFLED & BUTTONED
LOCATION: DALLAS, TX • AUGUST 15, 2016
A few weeks back we spent the week at the beach in Florida with my family. It was such a nice getaway from the triple digit weather, spending our time outdoors fishing and walking the beach or sipping coffee on the porch. It’s not that often that we’re able to feel like we can fully disconnect, so it was a nice switch up from our usual work routines to relax together. Now I can’t wait to begin planning our next trip whether it be next summer or around the holidays. Our time at the beach couldn’t have been more perfect weather, 86 degrees with cooling light winds and the perfect warmth in the air in the evenings.

I had pulled out this striped blue and white off the shoulder top for a crisp summer feel. It’s currently on sale under $80 and is one of those easy tops you can just throw on with jeans or a pair of white shorts and call it a day. I wore it with white jeans and my chloe flats to explore around the square which is where we ended up having dinner. I’ve worn it since being back home with this. I love the simplicity of the top while not skimping on feminine details of the ruffles and wooden buttons. I’ve been drawn to blue and white stripes lately, seen in this post and loving this, this and this blue eyelet top. There’s something about a blue and white combination that embodies the feel of summer and takes me back to summer nights at the beach, picnics, and movies in the park.
