Hat: A Lack of Color | Dress: c/o Banana Republic | Necklace: Kate Spade | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Shoes: Zara {old, similar} | Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington | Tote: Mar Y Sol | Jacket: Gap 

First off, can we discuss how excited I was to discover this random palm tree while shooting? Palm trees are super rare (if not unheard of??) in Canadian climate so it was most certainly worth a snap! And it couldn't have tied in more perfect with today's dress! This white linen number is absolutely darling for summer. I love the length and the fact that you can cinch or let out the waist with the adjustable belt. The linen fabric is a cinch for packing as well if you have any summer destinations planned!

Sizing: While I don't typically refer to sizing on the blog, I thought it was worth noting that I did find the dress fit larger (at least a size or two) than usual so it's worth sizing down. The neckline was a tad low for what I'm normally comfortable with so I had it altered before this shoot (we stitched up the front and shortened the straps). I think my seamstress overdid it a tad and we've since removed the stitching in the front but kept the strap length the same. Just a tip for any busty girls who were concerned from the dress styled on the model :)

  2. ooo this look is really lovely! I am not much of a jeans fabric fan (I know I am like the only one in the world xD) but I am really liking the jeans jacket to this simple look *_*

  3. I lovvve this! The length of the dress is so perfect with these sandals (which I already own, so now I'm thinking I need a white midi dress!) And that's nuts that you found a palm tree! I didn't know they existed at all in Canada!
