One if By Sea

Today was pretty much vacation perfection. Gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery, a tasty lunch, good company, and a willing outfit photographer in Darling Boyfriend. I have to give the man credit, he might be exhausted from an insane week at work but he’s usually pretty willing and happy to take outfit photos for me. However, he turned to me today in the car and jokingly (possibly?) brought up the idea of starting a support group called “Fashion Blogger Boyfriends Anonymous.” While geared towards the fashion blogger boyfriends of the world, all friends, relatives, and other innocent bystanders who get pressed into taking daily outfit photos are encouraged to attend.

It was a lot of fun to shoot this Jay Godfrey dress that has been hanging in my closet for well over a year. With only a simple stack of bracelets, the dress has that wonderful all-American aesthetic that designers like Ralph Lauren and Tory Burch have popularized and perfected.

Dress: Jay Godfrey

Bracelets: H&M, Vendoro, Street vendor, Saks

      Thanks so much Ette, I have to give major props to the photographer and the wedges that I had on under the dress that helped with the projected image of major height!

    Jessica you look truly truly stunning in this post. The dress is perfect for the scene by the sea. Cannot wait to feature you on my blog. I apologise I have been so slack in getting my Style Inspiration series back up and running, but I will be in touch very soon (and I hope you still want to take part!)

    Hope you had a great weekend, Sarah x
