Parisian Afternoon: a French Dress, Strappy Sandals & Macarons!


There’s nothing I love more than French style t shirt dresses in the summer!  But the best part is, this dress is only $20…

Similar Dress (almost identical!) // Cutout Lace-Up Sandals // Kate Spade Handbag


Hello everyone, happy Friday!!  Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?  I’m hoping Doug and I can make it to the beach and do a lot of relaxing!

I think it’s safe to say that my signature summer style will always involve a dress, and this dress is one of my favorites!  I absolutely love the color, and it is so incredibly soft and comfortable!  I originally bought this dress from Forever 21, but I found one on Boo Hoo that is almost identical!  It’s only $20 as well, so definitely check it out!  I paired my dress with this super cute pair of strappy sandals, and my Kate Spade tote!  

My best friend Alyssa and I spent the day snacking on macarons and catching up, and it was a truly lovely day (despite the 90+ degrees F weather)!  Alyssa spent over a month in France (check out her adventures on her blog, Somewhere Between Vogue & Van Gogh), and this was our first time being reunited!  I missed her so much, and it was so refreshing and wonderful being around her!  She also brought me home the most lovely presents, including the beautiful Parisian scarf tied on my handbag!  We had the best day, and I’m so excited for our adventures once the school year begins!

I hope your day is filled with love and good vibes!

xo, Tessa
