Happy Thursday, friends! How crazy that we are almost at the end of another week! Memorial Day weekend {in case you missed it and if you're looking for outfit inspiration, check out yesterday's post HERE} and summer are just around the corner!

Speaking of summer...there are few things that I love more than a summer sundress. Find me a summer sundress that's floral, flowy and airy and I will love it even more! This new arrival print {also comes in a navy and white print} from cabi is my new favorite summer dress and can be worn with SO many different colors. Take a look at that print: there is citron {always one of my favorites!}, lilac, dark purple, light blue and even a spot of orange. And since it's not quite summer here yet, I paired this colorful dress with my go-to denim jacket {unfortunately, this jacket is from J.Crew last year and is no longer available -- I linked two similar ones above!} FYI: you will more than likely find me in this dress all summer long! It's everything that I look for in a sundress: cool, comfortable and cute :)

As for accessories, I went with my new perforated lace-up wedge sandals, my favorite citron crossbody {similar style HERE} and THIS fun turquoise statement ring from Since the bag and ring are very much in your face, I went with more neutral shoes. And it was the perfect excuse to break in my newest sandals for spring/summer :) I have had my eye on these wedges since last summer and I never ordered them. When I finally decided that I had to have them, they were backordered!! I waited for about two months for these to arrive and I was beyond excited when they did. They were everything I hoped they would be, even the correct size! I took a chance when I ordered these. I am almost ALWAYS a size 9.5, but I read a few reviews that said size up a 1/2 size and some that said true to size. I crossed my fingers and went with the 10 and I am so glad that I did -- they fit me perfectly! I will say they are pretty comfortable too -- I wore them for the first time all day Saturday and Sunday and my feet felt pretty good, just tired from being on them vs. tired/hurting from shoe pain ;) If you are looking for a neutral {they are available in other colors, too!} sandal for summer, I would definitely recommend these!

Thanks so much for dropping by and have a great rest of the week and weekend! As I mentioned in Monday's post, we are heading to a warm and sunny destination Saturday {which is much needed after all this rain!}, so be sure to follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy} and Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7} to see where we are headed! See you back here Monday for an all new post!
