I have another post from my little photo shoot in Valley Forge National Park. Valley Forge is one of my favorite places, especially in the early summer when the weather is perfect for hanging outside all day long. Also, the park has a five mile trail wrapping through it that I love to run on when the weather is nice. I definitely need to start running after work again. Not only for the exercise, but also, I get some peaceful alone time outside and can meditate. That will be my goal for this month!
This dress is one of my favorites from Free People right now! A lot of the mini dresses there are way too short for me to wear as actual dresses, but this one is perfect! The embroidery along the neckline is so pretty and is small enough that it doesn’t take away from the simplicity of the dress, but adds the perfect little touch. This is definitely my favorite white dress so far this summer…is it technically summer yet? I think it is, right? I say yes! LOL
I’m also super obsessed with the accessories too. My necklace is a choker and a longer necklace all in one. I love it because it gives the layered look without any of the work or thought behind layering! My shoes are cute clog-like heels and I love the bright color of them. I ALWAYS go for neutral shoes, so this was me branching out with an orangish pair.
This outfit is cute and casual enough for everyday, and I think it would also be great for the beach or vacation. The heels are comfortable enough to stroll around on the boardwalk and the dress could also be worn as a beach cover-up. It comes with a slip that is removable and would look super cute covering up a bikini without the slip layer so that you can kind of see the bikini peeking through.
Can you tell I have the beach on my mind? I still need to pack for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette weekend which starts this evening!! We are going to a beach in Delaware and I am super excited for a getaway with the girls and all my sisters! At my age, it seems that everyone I know is getting married, so I am super busy in the summers. But, it is totally worth it to see my loved ones so happy and taking the next step in their lives with their significant others <3
Have a great weekend everyone!
