During the dog days of summer there is nothing better than a light-weight, white dress to keep you cool! Nearing September’s rule of “No White After Labor Day”, I paired a Tory Burch sundress, and handbag with a pair of bargain sandals. The look mixes two spend piece with a steal. The Tory Burch Bridget Sundress is worth every penny, it is light weight cotton with a high neckline and cinches at the waist, perfect for pear shaped, athletic shaped or hour glass shaped women!

It is very flattering and also runs a little big, so it is comfy for a morning coffee run (especially to the Art Cafe) or afternoon lunch date. The only flaw is that the material wrinkles very easily, even when it is ironed it creases from a car ride, or sitting for a short period.

I paired it with the Tory Burch Parker Tote, this tote is huge. Honestly it could probably fit a laptop, a dictionary, and a puppy. It’s huge! The inside is lined with a nylon like material, making it very sturdy as well.

One of the most fun parts of pulling this outfit together: the jewelry. Bracelets were from a Local Business: Ravel Brand. I love Ravel Brand, their stuff is so unique and quality is always at the top of the list. They have shirts with funny and cute phrases, and their bracelets are one size fits all and always stackable with other pieces.

Now to the most funky part of my outfit, the earrings!! Love, love, love them. They are Kenneth Jay Lane, Thread Ball Drop Earrings, they are a bit of a splurge, but you can find a similar piece on Saks Off Fifth here, same brand!

The sandals that I paired it with were a bargain, an old pair of Charlotte Russe sandals. The tip of the sandal is wearing a bit; I did wear them around Disney for a day.  I have to say the quality is what you pay, but Charlotte Russe always has funky and fresh finds. These sandals are light weight and don’t give me blisters either.

Moral of the Outfit: Mix a splurge with a steal, it can often lead to the most unique outfit choices for all occasions!
