Embroidery & Pinstripes

Happy Friday funky party people!

So lately I’ve been totally obsessed with dresses, especially for the summer. They’re easy to throw on, and I can wear spanx under them to keep my legs from chaffing which has SAVED my life since we’ve been in NYC. It’s so hot this week, and we’ve been walking a lot, so thank God for spanx. LOL.

This dress in particular I’m obsessed with because it’s really.. different. From what I usually wear, that is. I tend to gravitate toward neutrals and things that are less girly but when I saw this, I knew I was going to LOVE it!

I am over-the-shoulder obsessed lately as well, so this dress fit the bill. It comes down to mid-thigh/right above the knee which is perfect for me at 5’7″.

AND I HAVE HOPPED ON THE EMBROIDERY TRAIN, GUYS. I keep seeing this trend with tees, jeans, shoes, etc. And I haven’t been the biggest supporter, but this dress changed my mind. I think it’s so damn cute.

I got it at TJMaxx for maybe $16?? I LOVE TJMaxx and Ross and Marshalls and I am always on the hunt for a bargain. This was definitely a WIN!

Here are some similar options if you’re into this look:

ONE

TWO

THREE

It’s a super comfy material and did so well in the sweltering NYC heat. IT WAS SO HOT.

Like the underboob sweat was RAGING.

I hope we all had a great week! I’ll have some fun NYC stories for you guys soon, it’s been a FUN couple of days!!

xo, K

* Every bit as much a person as anyone else.

And I hate that this is something I have to constantly remind myself of.

  • I am feeling SO good today! 👏🏼 I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I feel the way I do at this point in my life and I’m learning. I’ve said it a million times & I’ll say it again for good measure: the relationship you have with yourself is so. important. Nourish it, feed it, watch it blossom. And youll surprise yourself when the time comes that the universe tests your strength. #reallifeis #yearofyou #selflovesoldier
  • Last night I fought consciousness HARDDDD- but still managed to fall asleep before 3am. 🎉 and I got up early, grabbed coffee with a friend, and came home to have a productive afternoon of catching up on work. I might pop on my stories for a little bit to word vomit some more but we’ll see. 🙄 #happythursday #reallifeis
  • Over it. 
Where’s my sunshine.
I want to sunbathe like a lizard.
  • It’s healthy resolution season and I’m keeping my pearly whites clean with the @waterpik toothbrush from my @babbleboxxofficial wishlist from last month! It’s a water flosser and triple sonic toothbrush all in one neat little counter topper. #wishlistbbxx #ad #waterpik

  • so many holiday things happening and literally aaaalll I can think about is the ocean.
  • I’m really struggling with the holiday spirit this year. Maybe because I’m growing up, maybe because life is weird right now. Who really even knows. I’m just super stoked I’m home with my favorite peoples. ✨🌲
