summer date night

Are you sick of all of those round ups of the pre Nordstrom sale yet? Well you're in luck because I do not have access to it, which is probably a good thing for my wallet in the long run. I do not need a new coat, but I did see one that I liked, and I'd rather just not think about coats right now. A good sale is a good sale but it's July! 

Let me preface this by saying that I know how unrealistic this dress is, especially on my budget, but I just love the shape, print, everything. I actually featured the handbag version of it a while back {see here}. It reminds me of Greece, summer in Santorini, the place right at the top of my travel wish list. Hopefully one day I'll make it there, but in the meantime I'm happy to day dream about wearing this dress for a dinner date in a hidden back garden with twinkling lights strung overhead. I like rooftops, don't get me wrong, but there is something so sweet about ground level outdoor spaces in Manhattan. They're as good as gold in my book.


  1. Haha I don't have access to it either! And sadly (or maybe not so sadly) I haven't been that impressed with anything. LOVE this dress! It is so gorgeous! Definitely not something I'll ever own but it's so pretty to dream about!

  2. I know what you mean about the coat - I really need a new one, but I so don't want to think about buying one for the season WAHHH!! I love that dress - it's so parisian chic!!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. That dress is so effortlessly beautiful! And I hear ya... I don't have access to the Nordstrom sale yet either, and all those lists last week did nothing for me. Now this week is a different story, now we can see what may still be left for the "rest of us" ;-)

  4. Lovely outfit! I can totally see you wearing it!

  5. SO in love with this dress. I obviously clicked on your link before reading all the way through, thinking to myself, "this would be great for that wedding in August." Then I saw the price... so much dreaming.

    I also completely agree about the backyard garden. I can't wait for the day that I have a yard. Again, with the dreaming.

  6. Oh my gosh, this dress is absolutely fabulous. I want to buy it and immediately fly to Greece and wear it around Santorini!
