Summer Shift Dress

nordstrom-floral-dressmiami-fashion-bloggerfloral-dressfringe-crossbodytory-burch-fedorasoprano-dressfloral-swing-dresssavannah-georgiacasual-summer-floral-dressswing-dressHappy Wednesday! I hope you all have been having a great week so far. It’s been really fun in Charleston and really hot. I actually didn’t think it was going to be this humid! If you follow me on snapchat (@laurenpatao) you’ll see how frizzy my hair was from shooting outside while walking around Downtown Charleston. It’s actually ridiculous. Like, I would like to go up and ask why humidity exists. Seriously.

Anyways, I wore this floral shift dress in Savannah and can’t wait to go home and wear it again. While I was shopping for last-minute pieces to bring on my trip, I saw this little number and had to take it home because 1) it’s a shift dress 2) it’s floral and 3) it’s under $50! It’s also a piece you can easily dress up or down, which is something I love. I’ll definitely be living in this… especially next week being Miami Swim Week, I’ll need these fresh and cool pieces unless I want to melt.

Also, I’m super excited because my fedora is on major sale! It’s $30 off! I wear this hat all of the time and swear by it. I actually usually bring it in my purse (if my purse is big enough) or leave it in the car because I always end up wearing it during the day. It’s comfortable and lightweight. My wedges are also on sale! Talk about a win-win, over here.

I’m going to link some of my favorite shift dresses below and don’t forget that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts tomorrow for debit/credit card holders! This is your chance to stock up on all of the new fall goodies without paying full price. 🙂

Have a great day and thanks so much for reading!

PS. BaubleBar has been killing it lately with all of their jewelry… I already have a few things in my cart! I’m especially loving thesethis and this.

    I love your dress. Charleston looks absolutely gorgeous. It is on the top of my list of places to go. Do you have any recommendations for places to visit?

      This is actually in Savannah! But yes for Charleston… for brunch, The Broken Egg. Definitely go to King Street for shopping and stop by Pink Dot Beauty Bar on…I forgot the name of that street but if you google it you can find it. Also, go to Magnolia Gardens… it’s absolutely beautiful! I recommend going during the spring or fall because it’s extremely brutal here now. Feels like 100 degrees!

      Thanks, Savannah! This is actually in Savannah (haha!). I took it Sunday before I left because I absolutely LOVED this location there! It’s a strip of beautiful homes!

    That dress rocks! I’ve been loving the shift dresses I have picked up recently!
    Your hats are always so cute- I have such a huge head and I can never wear cute hats 🙁

    Ohh la la, lovely dress there lady! I knew you had to be in SAV the second I saw your first photo! Charleston and Savannah look similar, but there are subtle differences and when you grow up between the two of them they’re a little easier to spot. Yay for all the things on sale and good price points, I keep telling myself I need to expand my summer wardrobe even though summer is half over… The Nordstorm sale certainly won’t help.

    I’m pretty obsessed with this dress! I totally just realized that I don’t have a lot of knee length sundresses for some reason (whaaat?) and I DEFINITELY just added this to my cart! Also, I’m loving the shot with the horse! I miss Charleston so much!
