a pop of sunshine.

Sam and Max dress (similar), J. Crew sweater (similar), Steve Madden sandals (similar), Curly in the City clutch, American Eagle belt (similar), vintage earrings and ring, Free People bracelet, Essie nail polish in Clambake

Apparently Minnesota has decided to overcompensate for the weeks of nasty weather by giving us heat and sunshine -- excessive heat and sunshine, in fact. Regardless, I've decided not to complain. Instead, I'm taking full advantage of the 90-degree-plus days by wearing crisp belted sundresses and simple sandals, eating ice cream and dipping my toes into lakes and pools. This easy little frock, with its fun color, cool fabric, and pretty details, has become my go-to, especially when paired with bright jewelry and my current favorite clutch.





Wishing you all a very happy and safe Fourth of July weekend -- see you on Wednesday!
