Lace-Up Sandals: Nordstrom Rack (old), similar here and here
Ark Bag: Cult Gaia
Sunglasses: c/o Zenni Optical
How was everyone's weekend? I'm finally recovering from my cough last week. However, I still have the lingering cough. Fortunately, my doctors don't think it is anything serious. Some of you asked about why I was nervous about my cough well that was one of the things my oncologist says to look out for. If the cough continues to linger it could be a sign of metastatic cancer. So the anxiety was a little high. I'm prescribed some meds and hopefully the cough will clear up in a few days!

When it comes to summer, without a doubt my wardrobe converts into blue and white (aside from the trending color. This year it's yellow and I am loving it!). The color combination blue and white has that cooling and refreshing look to it. It kind of reminds me of the ocean and for some reason I associate the ocean with the summertime. So any time I pick out a new outfit, I naturally gravitate towards blue and white colors.

Now that the heat is on, I've been wearing dresses nonstop and you bet I am wearing blue and white! How cute is this striped off the shoulder dress I scored from Alice & Wonder. Unfortunately, it is not available online but if you're in Chicago, Alice & Wonder opened up a store in the Lincoln Park neighborhood and this dress is definitely there plus many more cute things. It is kinda dangerous that the store is so close by!

Top 8 Blue and White Summer Dresses 

Anyways, I thought I'd share with you guys my favorite blue and white dresses for the summer. I will warn you that some may not actually be dresses but jumpsuits. However, I couldn't resist sharing them! They have the perfect summer look and they're just so cute! Most of the dresses I'm into are under $100 with a few that are around $120.

1. Chambray Wide-Leg Jumpsuit ($126)

I know this isn't a dress, but like I mentioned above it is so cute for the summer! I love the cut-out detail and the wide-leg style gives it an appearance that it could be a dress.

2. Lace-Up Shift Dress ($47.50)

Shift dresses are a summer classic style and the lace up details just gives the dress a slight edge.

3. Button-Up Mini dress ($58)

This dress is just darling! I love the vertical stripes and sweetheart neckline. It seems like a perfect outfit for a day at the park or for grabbing a soft serve ice cream cone with sprinkles.

4. Tie-Front Midi Dress ($55)

Tie-Front dresses are trending right now and I definitely want to try this trend out for the summer!

5. Ruffle Embroidery Maxi Dress ($24.95)

My mom got me this maxi dress and I can't wait to wear it. This dress is so light and airy and so comfortable!

6. Striped Embroidered Off the Shoulder ($43.73)

This dress kind of resembles the dress I am wearing in this post. It has the stripes and embroidery, and off the shoulder style. Gosh, I can't get enough of off the shoulders!

7. Embroidered Midi Dress ($46.80)

Another embroidery dress. I guess I am just really into embroidery too!

8. Poplin Wrap Jumpsuit ($134.40)

Here's another jumpsuit. Again it has the wide-leg style that emulates a dress and the wrap style is so chic!



Nordstrom Giveaway

So switching gears over here. In about a month or so, Nordstrom will be having another HUGE sale. This sale is known as the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I look forward to this sale because Nordstrom releases their Fall pieces and has a huge markdown on them during the Anniversary Sale. I know, I went from Summer to Fall in this post but it is so worth it once you see the markdowns. Anyways, since it will be coming up soon, I teamed up with other bloggers to give you an opportunity to win a Nordstrom gift card so you can use it during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!  Good luck to the participants!

  8. Oh my gosh, don't even remind me that the Nordy Sale is coming up—I'm trying to not shop as much! And You look like a summer dream! The embroidery makes this dress extra special. Oh, and I've seen that purse everywhere, and everytime I see it I get THAT much closer to buying it. Don't tempt me, Rach!

  9. You are killing it in the dress department lately! This blue and white with the embroidery has me all heart eyes! I am so glad it sounds like your cough isn't anything serious. I can see how that would be very anxiety producing.

    And Im obsessed with the cult gaia handbags! I want to get one, but I really wish they would have a little shoulder strap... as I would not be able to just carry it around... mostly now with a baby!
