Happy Thursday everyone! We are so close to a long weekend I can taste it! I’m so excited about some down time to relax in the sun and get some DIY projects done and to finish a few other books on my reading list. We have been so busy traveling lately I feel like I need a vacation from my vacations. I did manage to find a few minutes to download a few pictures from my England trip! It’s the first time I have seen them since I snapped them and I’m so excited to share them!! We saw so many beautiful things while we were there and it is pretty exciting to relive it all. Today’s post is from two areas we visited. Leamington Spa and the Cotswolds. Both areas are so gorgeous and overflowing with charm and historical buildings. Several of the buildings in the Cotswolds had thatched roofs. It was really refreshing to see a different way of life. Both towns are nestled in the picturesque countryside and maintain a slower pace. All the shops (except for the pubs and restaurants) close no later than 6 and there are no “one stop shops”, at least not in the smaller towns. If you need groceries for dinner you go see your fish man, mean man, cheese man and wine man. Shop small took on a whole new meaning and I have to say I really liked it.

I’ll warn you in advance about the outfit posts: I packed for cooler rainy weather since every forecast and everyone in England said it would be cool and rainy every day. Lucky for us, we experienced unseasonably warm and sunny conditions which made our days that much better, but outfits sparse. You all know how much I love these cut off shorts and how white and denim is my go-to. Well, on this trip these shorts and white tops were my saving grace! They kept me cool and kept me from wearing gym clothes the whole week.  I swapped out some of the accessories but managed to live in some type of espadrille and either my Longchamp bag or this awesome cross-body the entire time we were on the go.

Good Morning Loves! I am so excited to share today’s post! This amazing white shift dress has been on major repeat this summer. It is so easy to throw on and the accessory possibilities are endless! It is super loose and flowy but doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing a circus tent. It comes with a lace up neckline and flowing sleeves that add cool detail. (for me, it’s always in the details!) I’ve worn it tied and untied for a variety of feels depending on what I’m going for. My all time favorite part of this dress is the subtle raw texture of the flowers. It is a little hard to tell in the pictures but it has a burn out, sheer feel without looking totally casual. Basically, I LOVE it and knew I had to have it the minute I saw it. With white being a major trend this season, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. To make my favorite dress even more awesome, I popped in these mega white flower studs. They are larger than life but super light weight and so perfect! I was a little nervous when I first got them and wasn’t sure if they were really me. It took them being on my lobes for 2 seconds before I fell in love and now I’m reaching for them every other day. Most days I have to restrain myself and space out the wear. I finished off this flirty outfit with a super playful & colorful tassel clutch and nude heels. I, along with many others, missed the boat on the Rebecca Minkoff Tassel bag but luckily found this gem on ETSY. It’s almost identical and completely affordable! If you haven’t noticed yet, I love getting the designer look for less or finding anything on super sale. The almighty budget is a beautiful thing and rules my life and the lives of many others, so naturally I also like sharing my good finds. I hope you guys have a rockin’ Tuesday. Only 3 more days to go!
