I can’t get enough of blue and white prints lately – it’s just a timeless yet fresh color combo that has me anticipating summer! I wore both of these looks during our recent trip to Nantucket, where it fit right in with the preppy style of the island. These dresses may appear similar in color scheme, but have two completely different personalities. The cotton midi dress above is more demure and appropriate for daytime, while the off-shoulder one below is a sassy little bodycon dress that hugs every curve. I’ve also worn the one above with a cropped cardigan (in either mustard or white) for a business casual setting.
I pulled this dress out for gala night at the Wine & Food festival with the Stella Artois team. As a Top Chef fangirl, I was thrilled to meet a few of my favorite contestants from over the years and try some of their food (felt like Tom and Padma walking up to the chef’s stations)! One thing that was poorly planned on my part was wearing a bodycon dress to a culinary extravaganza. This piece isn’t the most forgiving, so prepare to either suck in after a big meal, or just embrace the second trimester “food baby”!
I wore this second look for a festival jazz brunch, where there were three stations of small plates paired with Stella Artois Cidre cocktails. Having spent a few years living in the south, I made a beeline for the shrimp and grits station, which was paired with a refreshing Cidre and cilantro drink (sounds odd but was actually quite tasty).
For dessert, the Nantucket juice shop was a must for homemade ice cream – the strawberry with dark chocolate chips is so good!
I haven’t tried on much apparel by Vince Camuto (mostly shoes!), but this dress was reminiscent of a gorgeous Kate Spade one that I was about to order. I ended up loving it – from the mixed blue prints down to the pockets, and thought quality was pretty nice for the price point. My favorite little details are the tile print waistband and shoulder straps, along with the hidden snap buttons to keep your bra straps secured!
This dress in petites does run a little small for the label size, so a 0P fits closer to a 00P in other American brands like Ann Taylor or LOFT. It still haS some room on me across the top bust, but not so much that warranted alterations. I know small sizes in both of these dresses are running low, but I hope some of you were able to order after my initial Instagram posts last month!
