Black and White embroidery

Happy Monday! This week marks the beginning of a busy month and a half. I’ll be heading to New Orleans twice, once for wedding related things, Indianapolis for a quick trip with Matt, Chicago for the Blog Societies Conference, and be a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding. It’s going to be hectic but a lot of fun. I plan on documenting most of it here and on Instagram. If there is anything specific you want to see or any suggestions you have please let me know!

As for today’s look it’s a bit of a different one for me with the black and white embroidery. Black and white are staple colors for me but this dress is something I usually wouldn’t go for. This dress caught my eye during the Zara sale and it looked so cute on the model that I decided to go for it. I ended up loving the shape which wasn’t much of a surprise because I usually find shift dresses flattering. I also recently picked up these slides on sale at Belk and they are honestly one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. Block heel sandals have ended up being my go to shoe this summer because they go with everything and are so comfortable to wear.

    I love this dress! It incorporates all of my favorite summer trends in one – embroidery and off the shoulder! Love it!

    That dress is perfection! What a great find. I love how it almost looks like it’s two piece with the scallop detailing. Have a fantastic/busy month.

    This is such a pretty dress on you and I love the eyelet detail. I swear Zara sales never disappoint.

    These porcelain inspired dresses are a great trend this season. I love yours. I haven’t seen an embroidered so far. So chic. Thanks for linking up to Top of the the World Style.
