Full disclosure: I actually purchased this dress on a whim because I needed a new dress for our trip down to the shore. I always like to buy something new when packing for a trip -- it makes me so much more excited.

Ted Baker dresses are modern classics. They take fail-proof styles and add flirty touches that are simply irresistible.

Needless to say, the baby pink shade was what caught my attention. The fringe was a fun boho detail that I otherwise would not go near, but on this dress, it's so subtle that I forget it's there.

I have been on the hunt for nude leather mules for quite some time and I finally came across the perfect pair last week! They come in the softest leather and even add on some extra height. I only wish I'd found them earlier so I could've worn them longer.

I purchased this straw bag back in July right after our trip to Italy and Germany, and I've just gotten around to using it. In fact, when I first received it, I disliked the material so much that I gave it away on Instagram (if you don't follow along, you're missing out! I'm always giving stuff away!) I regretted it so much right after I shipped it out that I ordered another one for myself. Funny thing is, I wish I could say that this was the first time that something like this has happened -- forever thinking twice about stuff that I "no longer want."

Warm days are dwindling, so I've been trying to squeeze in as many cute summery dresses while I still can. I'll be packing this dress on our little Labor Day weekend road trip before I pack it away for next spring. What do you have going on for the long weekend?
