Happy Tuesday, folks! As much as I loved the 95+ degree weather in D.C. last week, I'm thankful that it's going to be a little cooler this week so I can actually wear sleeves without wanting to keel over. More specifically, I'm happy I can bust out this bright Dress Up romper in comfort. How fun is this print? I'll be planning my next getaway in this fun tropical piece. 

If you were wondering: the title of this post is one of my favorite jams of the summer, "Tropical Chancer" by La Roux. You can check out some of my other favorite summer jams on Spotify.

Monday Must-Have: Destroyed Denim Shorts

One // Two // Three // Four

This seems so basic, but I'm on the hunt for the perfect distressed denim short. I'm incredibly picky with denim, but I'm headed to the mall today and on a mission to find my perfect pair. Hopefully one of these options will work for you, but knowing me and my body, I have to buy all my bottoms in-person!

Pair these with a breezy oversized tee and flat sandals for a cool, casual look or some strappy heels and a flowy blouse for a look that's perfect for a night out on the town.

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I spent last weekend at the Southern Blog Society conference at the W Atlanta -- Buckhead. This was my first blogger conference ever, and I'm not going to lie, I was pretty intimidated to head outside of my little D.C. bubble to a new city with esteemed bloggers.

Long story short: I had the time of my life. Jessica and Cathy did such an amazing job planning the entire event and I got the chance to mix, mingle and network with both the crème de la crème of Southern bloggers and some amazing brands (ASOS, Kendra Scott, Dermalogica, ShopSense and Ahalogy, just to name a few!)

I'm still unpacking our massive swag bag of goodies I received at the conference, but I'll slowly but surely share my favorite products on Instagram, Twitter and in outfit posts. In the meantime, check out a few photos shot by the incredibly talented Rebekah Carson.

My favorite part about summer fashion is that there is no shortage of bold colors and crazy prints in stores. Don't get me wrong, I love a good neutral, but bright colors just work for me a lot better. I love complimenting bold hues with crisp, white accessories in an attempt to blind everyone walking past me as well. Hello. This outfit is in your face and I'm not sorry about it.

This J.Crew dress is great because it's one of those dresses that works for various occasions. Brunch? Check. Work? Check. Drinks with the girls? Check check check. As a girl who loves J.Crew but has a modest entry-level budget to work with, this purchase made sense.
