Crisp Cotton, Soft Denim

Sunday was the first of many summer days spent at the beach picnicking, biking and soaking up the sun. My sunburn is pretty bad but it was worth it to spend the day with Rich down by the water. Although it was a bit windy for such a light cotton dress I couldn't help wanting to wear it. The crisp cotton of the fabric and the floaty skirt with a perfectly worn in denim jacket was too good to try anything else and I wore this same outfit all weekend. It will likely be a go-to all summer long.
The dress is Levis for Opening Ceremony from last summer. It was an incredibly lucky find from TJMaxx that I got for $24! The day I found it I couldn't believe my good luck because last year I clicked on the website a million times to stare at it. Because it's white I know that I have to be a bit careful in it, but when its color starts to look dingy I plan to dye it a beautiful color and not let such a perfect cotton dress go to waste.

  7. The dress is gorgeous! And I really like the idea of dyeing something white a different color when it gets dingy; I actually hadn't thought of that before.
