Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Living in Abu Dhabi it’s easy to forget even the major American Holidays such as 4th of July. Even though my husband and I attended a bbq with a few of our expat friends we definitely missed being back in Chicago. Over the weekend I wore this nautical inspired striped A-line dress and received tons of compliments. This dress has  become a Topshop staple and has been recreated in different colored stripes and materials. The best thing about this dress? It’s under $100! This dress is perfect for any summer outing, it can be dress down like I did with these summer must-have Vince platform sandals or dress up with wedges or nude heels. I honestly cannot say how much I love these espadrilles inspired sandals…Vince is definitely one of my favorite shoe brands due to their durable leather and how comfortable they are! These sandals come in different colors ( the white ones are amazing) and I’m also thinking about getting the wedge version. The leather adds a touch of sophistication to the rustic platform. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to reading your comments.


Feliz Lunes a todos! Les cuanto que mientras estamos en Abu Dhabi es muy fácil olvidarse de los días feriados en Estados Unidos. Aunque mi esposo y yo pasamos el 4 de Julio con unos amigos la verdad es que nos hizo falta estar en Chicago. Durante el fin de semana use este vestido de rayas super económico de Topshop. El vestido es perfecto para el verano, es comodo y fácil de combinar. Yo quería un look casual así que use estas sandalias de la marca Vince, pero el vestido tambien se puede usar con plataformas o tacones para la noche. Estas sandalias de Vince la verdad es que han sido unos de los mejores zapatos que he comprado este ano, son super comodos, modernos y tambien vienen en diferentes colores. Que les parece este look? Muchas gracias por leer y espero ver sus comentarios.
