Sometimes it's fun to step away from all the cutesy sundresses of summer and wear something a little more edgy, a little more polished! And this dress from Ivy + Blu is exactly that! It's still definitely light & airy enough for a summer day/night, but felt a little more sleek than what I've been sporting lately. This will definitely be a go-to and I love that it can easily transition into fall/winter as well (NOT that I am even thinking about fall in the slightest. Yay, summer!) 

The last few days have been pretty chaotic around here. Hurricane Arthur hit here on Saturday and while we were very lucky with no damage and no real state of emergency, a lot of people had trees fall on their houses or on their properties or blocking roads, there was some flooding and most people, myself included, were without power for 3-4 days.

Though on the upside, the fella and I took advantage of our offices being closed yesterday and took off to the beach for the day! It was a perfect day and when we got back home last night our power had been restored! I had never been so excited to take a shower and watch a little tv! ;) I hope anyone else dealing with Arthur is safe!

  4. This definitely does have an edgy look to it, but it is still true to your style Kate! I really do like that dress. It is such a fun piece. I am glad you got your power restored and things are starting to get a bit better after Hurricane Arthur!
