Ladies and Gents! Los Angeles is in a serious heat wave today. We’re suppose to hit 100+ degrees and that rarely ever happens. I was having the hardest time trying to find something to wear to work this morning. Today is actually going to be the last day at my current job. I’ve been there for almost seven years and they are like family to me, but I got the opportunity to move on to something even more amazing. More details on that soon, but for now, lets talk about this perfect white summer vacation dress!

So I actually found this dress by accident. I was looking for an orange dress and there was one in the same style that I tried on first. It was in regular sizes though (vs. petite). When I finally got to try it on, the straps were so long that it kept falling off my shoulders. I was heartbroken and ending up returning it. The next day I was browsing around ASOS again and saw they had a petite version, but it was white. I didn’t really think about getting a white dress (since I seem to ALWAYS get it dirty on the first wear), but I thought I would try it on anyways. I ended up liking it more than the orange one!

OUTFIT DETAILS

River Island Petite Ruffle Dress (0): You know how every girl needs a little black dress? Well, every girl should have a little white dress for the summer months and this one definitely fits the bill. I love that the material is cotton so it’s breathable for those hot summer days. It is also fully lined so it gives that dress an extra layer of coverage. My favorite part is the asymmetrical detail on the top part of the dress though. It’s little details like those that really make the outfit.

ASOS Clear Clutch: Okay, so I really want the Chanel PVC Clear Handbag (heck…. I really want any Chanel bag in general), but alas, it’s going to be awhile for me. In the meantime though, since the PVC trend is going pretty strong right now, I wanted to find a fun clear purse to take on vacation with me. I have to say that I absolutely fell in love with this purse. The type of love where you’re dancing around your room and hugging the purse because you love it so much. It comes with a white handle so you can hold it like a handbag and a gold chain if you want to wear it over your shoulder. Unfortunately, the purse has sold out since I bought it, but hopefully ASOS will make more. Otherwise, I’ve linked some other alternatives up above.

SUGARFIX by Baublebar Tassle Earrings: Again, I bought another pair from SUGARFIX. Everyone is wearing these fun tassel earrings that I wanted a pair for myself. I didn’t want to spend the money on the original Baublebar version, so I decided to check it’s sister brand SUGARFIX and they almost have the same style for a quarter of the price.
