What I Wore: Stripes and Showers

Wow... My schedule is SO off. I am trying to balance everything out and it is not easy! I always think I have a ton on my plate until I think about my friends that are married AND have kids that get more done than I do. Perspective! This week is already flying by. 

I wanted to share my look from my sister's baby shower on Sunday. I saw this dress online and it sold out immediately. No joke. So I called and went to 5+ stores looking for it. No one had my size. I had given up. Then I had to return a couple things that I had bought online and decided to check one more time. I found the dress in my size although it had the wrong ticket and hanger! Luckily I know to always check tags first. I am having a huge love affair with red and navy right now. I am drawn to anything that looks patriotic or nautical. I think it is because the Olympics start on Friday! I am SO excited. The Summer Olympics are my favorite!! Back to the outfit... Gold accessories and my go to cognac sandals completed the look! I had to drive home after the shower and I made sure to stop at a couple coastal view points along the way. The beach is my happy place and I needed to clear my head :)
