Before we bid the summer goodbye, I’ve teamed up with Seastar Beachwear on one really great giveaway to kick off August! I love Seastar’s stretchy espadrilles while traveling because they come in a number of colors and are perfect for biking, beaching, boating etc. I literally wore my pink ones all over Watercolor a few weeks ago for biking to the beach. They are the type of shoes you can wear down on the beach without fear of getting sand on/in. Super stretchy and comfy making them the ultimate travel shoe that comes in a rainbow of colors.
So far I have their espadrilles in white, pink, coral and blue. Obsessive. I know. I think they are literally the perfect beachy vacay shoe though, and they have been with me to Key West, Cape Cod and Watercolor so far this summer. They were also the best kind of deck shoes for our cruise to Bermuda, so chances are you’ve already seen these espadrilles on my Instagram too!

Have you guys seen the Banana Republic new arrivals yet?! Especially the dresses you guys. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many things I’ve wanted to add to my wishlist from BR. This weekend they are also running a 30% off promo code on ALL full-price items, so you don’t have to wait to get those items you’ve had your eye on. I’m sharing one of my favorites in today’s post!
I’ve been wearing this sleeveless tie-neck dress in blush this summer because:
A. It’s pink.
B. It’s super easy to style.
C. It’s really comfortable.

Like I mentioned the other day on Instagram, I’m not ready to say goodbye to all of my summer brights yet, BUT I’m still trying to find ways to tie in a little color into my pre-fall and transitional outfits. This red off-the-shoulder Chicwish dress is a great option for a upcoming weeks when it’s still warm outside, but you’re moving towards a more neutral color palette. I love the huge ruffles that are surprisingly lightweight! Scroll through the post to see a close-up view of the material which is actually a very small gingham check – you guys know I love the gingham!
Another big Chicwish favorite on Instagram has been THIS white cutout shoulder dress.
I wore this dress for a fun day at The Commerce Building downtown for a tour of their living spaces and rooftop pool deck which is soon to host a restaurant that overlooks the Mississippi River. You guys, it doesn’t even look like this building belongs in Baton Rouge – it’s so picturesque up there! OH and yes, this cute little bike is just one of the many that they offer for use to their residents. SO stinking cute!

Have I mentioned how much I love the pair of J.Crew white skinny jeans that I found this summer? (Probably like 100 times already.) BUT there’s a good reason, and it’s because they are legit the best white jeans that I’ve ever bought! They are the first white denim jeans that I’ve found that do not stretch out in the knees or the calves. You can actually wear them more than once – or more than two hours – without having to throw them in the dryer to shrink them back. And I don’t know if you’re a high-waisted jean fan like me, but they are high-waisted and super comfy because of it. I’m wearing the cropped version but they are also available in normal length. I also followed the dressing room attendant’s suggestion and went down a size, and he was absolutely correct. If you’re interested in these, size down!
I’m also loving this oversized, button-down tunic that’s currently on sale in both colors for under $40! I consider it a key piece for the office and even for sneaking those jeans on days that aren’t Friday. Looking ahead for fall, you could layer it with a long cardigan, black leggings and riding boots – all of these are currently on sale in the Nordstrom sale.
