With just over a week left of my summer break left I am trying to make the most of my time! Between birthday celebrations for my husband and myself, vacation, spending quality time with Claire, and dinner with friends, it promises to be a busy, but very fun time! Enter this gorgeous dress from SheIn. It arrived just in time for a night out with friends. We enjoyed a lovely meal outside and then stopped by an ice cream shop. It was close to the area where my husband and I lived while I was in graduate school and right by Lake Michigan. It's such a fun, artsy area that we don't typically get to often. We used to go to the ice cream place every so often and it was better than we remembered! You can't go wrong with horchata flavored ice cream! 

Blue and white prints are my all time favorite and when I saw this dress on SheIn, I knew it had to be mine. And at only $21! I love the length and modest cut of it, too. It could even be work appropriate. I sized up (as I do with everything on their site) and am wearing a medium. The only odd thing about it is that the lining stops at the bottom fabric and so it feels like it is way too short until you get used to it! That is something I can definitely live with. I might even be wearing this again to the even we are going to at the zoo this Friday!
