Florals & Stripes


We’re back from our Memorial Day road trip to Cincinnati! Neither one of us had been to Ohio before, which made the six and a half hour trip to the city a no brainer for the long weekend. We spent most of our time exploring neighborhoods, stopping in boutiques, and trying bars and restaurants. I’ll share a recap of our most notable stops next week. Until then, I wanted to highlight this dress. It was undoubtedly my favorite piece on the trip thanks to its easy silhouette. I came around to the slight high-low hem after realizing that it gave me just the right amount of extra coverage when I sat down! For a peek at the other items I packed, visit Julie Leah’s blog here.
