LDD: little denim dress

{One Teaspoon Lotus Denim Dress (also here); hat: Talula; bracelet: J.Crew; 
sneakers: Vans; sunglasses: Prada}

I came across this One Teaspoon dress and searched everywhere for my size, but sadly could not find it.  So I ordered this one instead, which is very similar.  It's the perfect little denim dress because you can wear it everywhere.  Just throw it on and head to the beach, run errands, etc.  I wore this dress to dinner the other night - with a bandeau so there were no 'wardrobe malfunctions' - and gladiator sandals, see here).  My favourite part of this dress is the back, but you can see the front and how I styled it with a necklace here.

palm tree life / white tee and cutoffs

{tee: Anthropologie; shorts: Levi's (bought in-store at Aritzia); hat: Talula; shoes: Miss Sixty;
initial necklace: Guess (old, love this Kate Spade one); bracelet: Coach; sunglasses: Prada}

Hi from Myrtle Beach!!  We've been here for almost two weeks now and it already feels like home.  It also still feels like we're on vacation so that's a bonus!  We drove to Pittsburgh for the night after closing our house and had awesome 'saucy balls' at a place called Sienna Mercato for lunch the next day.  I'm not big on meatballs but they are amazing.  Next up was Charlotte, North Carolina for the night.  The next day we had brunch at Mimosa Grill, which was all-you-can-eat (it was a Sunday).  I would've loved to spend more time in NC, but it was off to Myrtle Beach since we had an early closing the next day.  It's been non-stop unpacking ever since.  (I am STILL not done organizing my closet.  I finally have a walk-in again!)  I decided it was time to take a break and finally do some shopping!  I started with some online shopping of course (first stop,!).  Then we headed to Market Common for some crepes at Crepe Creation Cafe and did a little shopping at Anthropologie, which is where I picked up this perfect white tee (and a few other things).  It's very, very hot here (apparently hotter than usual) so besides wearing a bathing suit, it's been shorts and tees every day.  And I love it.

{top: Wilfred via Aritzia; jeans: ZARA; hat: Urban Outfitters;
sneakers: Vans; sunglasses: Prada}

I've been rotating the same pieces lately, including these ZARA boyfriend jeans, because 1) I have barely had a second to think about what to wear; and 2) I have packed up most of my clothes, jewellery, etc. for our big move in a couple of days.  It's crazy to think we will be living in Myrtle Beach by Monday!  Our first stop will be Pittsburgh and I can't wait because I've never been.  I'm looking forward to the shopping, of course.  That's one of the things I'm looking forward to is online shopping (besides the staying home with my kids, living near a beach, not working - you know).  No more duties, no more shipping fees.  Free returns!  So next time you see me, I'll be blogging from the States with my newly free-shipped clothes.
