The Perfect Summer Dress (with Sleeves and Espadrilles)

perfect-spring-dressSpring-fresh, blue and white pinstripes are the perfect pick-me-up after a long, dreary winter.

This dress by Tularosa was the ideal dress to wear on my spring vacation in the desert; cool enough for those hot days and warm enough for the cool nights.

I just love how the bow tied laces on these espadrilles from Soludos compliment the dress’s tied sash. It’s charming without being too juvenile.

The dresses bell sleeves and beautiful embroidery are flattering and add subtle artsy flavor to the overall ensemble.

Tastefully sexy slits on both sides of the dress allows the fabric to catch the welcomed afternoon breezes.

Preppy meets boho. The horizontal stripes on this darling clutch from Idelle look great with the dress’s vertical stripes. I love the flirty tassels, too. (I also love how my earrings match the bag – a happy accident!)
