{blue + pink smocked dress}

I found this cute lil dress in stores and was instantly smitten with the style.

I love a good smocked detail on dresses and tops but was worried that having it around my mid-section would highlight an area that I didn't want to have attention brought to. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when the fit was really slimming! You can move the skirt up or down and really maneuver this style to fit your body type. Plus, it's so lightweight and breezy without making you look baggy. The combo of loose up top and fitted at the waist is very slimming. I've been stalking the website to see if this has popped up online yet but no luck (it's still in stores)! I've linked a bunch of similar dresses in the same style that are just as adorable!

These wedges have also become a staple for me this summer. They're perfect for work and fun! I wore them to a welcome party for a wedding in MA last weekend. I can commute to work in them AND dance all night in them - total win in my book!

{striped maxi dress + leopard heels}

Exploring Dumbarton Oaks was still a highlight of my Spring - taking these photos felt like I had stepped in to a fairytale.

Things I love: maxi dresses, pink, bow details, turquoise, leopard, twirling, straw purses, and high heels. Combine them all together and you have one of my favorite looks I've put together. I love a romper and sandals in the summer but being super girly/feminine while mixing prints is a favorite as well. Put me in a dream like venue and I'm going to act like a princess dancing and twirling around haha. I love how this dress fit - super long so that it covered my heels (I'm 5'-6") and the tie straps were adjustable. The smocking around the bodice was so flattering and helped give me some shape which can be hard with maxis sometimes! This dress was made out of a light linen material so it breathed well in the hot sun. Y'all have seen me share these shoes before but they're so. dang. comfortable. I have them in nude as well and I swear I can practically run laps!!

Fun fact - you can buy or rent this dress! It's available on Rent the Runway! I had had it in my Nordstrom cart for a couple of weeks and when I saw it was available on RTR I quickly added it to my Unlimited order! Such an awesome way to sample things before purchasing. Use code JROGERS50 to get 50% off your first month of Unlimited!

Fun fact #2 - these are the first Kendra Scott earrings I owned... Throw back to 2013!!! They're some of my tried and true favorites. If you've been around since 2013 then you know my love for turquoise runs deeeeeep. I think it could easily pass as my favorite color (at least in the jewelry department for sure)!

Love Always,

{little white amazon dress}

There's nothing I love more than bright & vibrant color... but white is easily my go-to color that never fails. I just love a crisp white!

I found this cute little dress on Amazon and instantly knew it was a must have in my closet. I love the flutter sleeves and the tiered ruffle skirt. It's also lined!! So you don't have to worry about it ever being see through. This just proves that reading the reviews on Amazon are worth it - I never would've known if I hadn't scrolled through them. In all honesty I probably would've written this off. White dresses are normally a miss for me (except I have a ton, maybe because I always assume they won't work haha). I've got lots of other summer dresses on my Amazon Shop Page!!

{lilly pulitzer + georgetown cupcake + hope for henry}

I'm so unbelievably excited to share today's post with y'all I can hardly stand it!!! Sandy (my talented photographer) and I dreamed up this whole shoot and had the most fun shooting it in collaboration with brands I love! Scroll down to the bottom to see what this whole shoot was for...
hint: it involves shopping and sweets!

Photography by Sandy Ma

I am so thrilled to share that I will be hosting an event at Lilly Pulitzer
in Georgetown on Sunday, June 2 from 12-3pm!

The event is in partnership with Georgetown Cupcake and they've created a "Lilly's Resort Dozen" that will only be sold for the month of June! 15% of every Lilly dozen sold at Georgetown Cupcake gets donated back to Hope for Henry, an organization that is reinventing how hospitals care for seriously ill children and their families through innovative programs that entertain, reduce stress, and empower children to be active participants in their own care. To help raise even more, Lilly is hosting an in-store Shop and Share where all sales give 10% back to Hope for Henry too! 

Come shop with me, taste all of the amazing cupcakes (like key lime pie and salted caramel), and hang out!! I'd love to meet you guys and celebrate the start of summer the best way possible - with cupcakes, Lilly, and raising money for a great cause! The store is gorgeous and the cupcakes are delicious so just stop by to say hi if you're in the area :)

Okay so outfit details...
I can't get enough of this blue dress. The pattern is what first drew me to it with the lemons and whimsical blues and whites. I love how it's appropriate for work but still would be fun for the weekends with the flirty ruffles! It zips up the back and even though it looks like a wrap dress it's actually faux - which means it won't flap open with the wind! I paired it with my favorite Lilly pearl hoop earrings that are really lightweight and lend a sweet little touch of pink pearl plus my tassel bracelets I scored on sale last summer. Then I topped it all off with a Lilly cork studded clutch (I can't say no to any cork details) and J.Crew Factory platform espadrilles to dress down the whole look.

If you have any questions let me know! I hope to see y'all at the event - drop a note below if you're going to try to stop by and see me :)

Love Always,
