Bring on summer!

I am in such a summery mood today. We had a big cookout at work with hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixins'. I made and brought cupcakes of course! It was fun to hang out with coworkers and play around outside a little bit. It is super hot though! The best part of all was that we were allowed to wear shorts and flip flops. Fun fun! 
     Summer got me thinking about the beach and other fun things to do. I have had my eye on this BCBG dress below and will hopefully make it mine. Crossing my fingers that it will go on sale! It would be perfect to wear to a bridal shower or out for cocktails after a nice relaxing day spent by the ocean. Cheers to summer and the fun it brings! 


I love the ruffle detailing and I would tie the bow in the front. Too cute!

I bought that dress last summer in white for my rehearsal dinner, and I love it! It looks fantastic on, and I got so many compliments on it. I would highly recommend (in fact, I'd love it in this color too!)

This dress is ADORABLE! There were probably 20+ girls wearing it in white at my graduation and it looked fab on each and every one of them!

I bought the dress but in black. I bought it on Ebay for 88 bucks including shipping. It actually came w/the bloomingdales tag still on it. I would check there if you really want it but don't want to fork over 300 bucks for it. I looooooove it!
