Summer Uniform.

happy Monday! I fly back from London today. I have had the most wonderful stay and it felt so much longer than 4 nights!! To me, (especially if I am traveling alone), 4 nights (well, 5 if you count the redeye flight) is the perfect length for a trip. Long enough to do a lot and feel like you’ve gotten away… but not toooo long. As much as I love traveling alone I start to get a little lonely after that!

This is pretty much my ideal summer outfit. An easy white dress, great sunglasses, beachy accessories, and… my Cuyana Summer Hat. I am out of my mind happy/excited that Cuyana started sizing their hats. I’ve always admired them but I have a very large head so they never work for me. Not the case anymore. Now that I know their hats will fit me I’m also thinking about adding this Panama Hat (love the navy bow!) to my collection.

I have been snapping up little white dresses left and right. I know it’s bad as I already have so many, but there are so many cute ones right now! Currently crushing on this $45 off the shoulder midi-dress, this lacy midi (I’d wear it over a swimsuit), this super flattering blouson midi dress, this lacy off the shoulder dress which just went on sale, this handkerchief hem midi-dress, and this cute popover dress!!! The best part is that they are all under $100!

    This dress is just a perfect length — not QUITE a maxi, but longer than a midi, too. So pretty! I love it. I agree re: traveling alone. I’ve only ever done a weekend and while there are definite perks, you do start to get a little lonely. London is my favorite place on earth, glad you had a great time!!

      Yeah, it does get lonely! It’s nice getting to do whatever you want… but by the end I miss having company! Luckily I had a lot of friend time this trip but I’m happy to be back in New York now! xx

    So pretty!

  8. Love this dress on you! It looks so cool and comfortable for the heat, and the shape is so flattering. Perfect with the bag as well.

    Absolutely adore this look, Grace! I’m way too into hats right now (as in most of my outfits I’ve shot lately have been with hats)! I need to check out Cuyana’s selection ASAP!
