Summer Shirt Dress

I am a huge fan of the classic shirtdress (I wore this one countless times in the fall/winter), and this black linen maxi version is such a fun update for the summer. My favorite thing about a shirt dress is that while it is perfectly wearable for work, you can easily sass it up by unbuttoning a few buttons. Such an easy, breezy look that I have on repeat, lately. This one is great for my workplace (buttoned all of the way down, of course), and it has a great price, too! It's currently on sale at Madewell, and you can take an extra 20% off all sale items with code META20 (but hurry - the extra 20% off ends today).

This was such a fun, relaxing, summer weekend - I am putting off going to sleep right now because I don't want it to end! We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday on Friday, and then spent all day on the Fourth lounging around, before meeting up with friends to watch the fireworks show in our neighborhood. I always struggle on the weekends because I have a long to-do list that I want to get done - laundry, errands, blog pictures, writing, studying, etc. - but at the same time, all I really want to do is rest and decompress from working all week. Having the extra day this weekend was so lovely & much needed. Now I just need to find a job where I can work 4 days a week instead of 5, and then I can actually do it all.

I bought these sandals on sale at J.Crew at the end of last summer, and wore them constantly in early fall (seen here, here, and here). There are some similar versions these season that I've been eyeing too, from J.Crew (love these too), Nordstrom, and Shopbop
