Shoulder Ties Sun Dress

One of my favorite things to wear in the summer time is the cotton sun dress with shoulder ties! It really reminds me of being a little girl sometimes. Remember wearing those cute little smocked sun dresses growing up? I also love this one because it's fun twirlin' in that super full tiered skirt! Super comfortable cotton too. Paired it with a leather belt that honestly gets paired with nearly all of my sun dresses, I like it that much.

The rose necklace is pretty special to me. It reminds me of my Grandma because she used to wear something very similar. My sis is now the lucky owner of Gram's original rose necklace, but I found one that is just as pretty, and the sentiment is still there.♥

Check out our garden's progress! I've been using that basil fresh off the stem for homemade pizza, and the kale I planted myself! :) The blackberries are what I'm most thrilled about, though. There are seriously a TON growing in our far backyard. It's great because even if I go out and pick a bowlful one day, another bowlful is ready the very next day. Mmmmm berry pie & vanilla ice cream is heaven on a hot summer evening, my friends!
