Stripes Above Night Sky

Dress: Beyond Vintage
Shoes: Gianni Bini
Necklace: gift from my momma
One week from tomorrow I will be leaving for a road trip with my hubs to the beautiful colorful Colorado. I am ecstatic to say the very least. My sister and her family got there yesterday (green monsters unite!) and she said it was 80 degrees and gorgeous. I have been living in 100+ weather for the last 25 days and there is no end in sight. You can't even imagine what it feels like to open the door to walk to my car in the afternoons when I get off work. Misery!
When I was a kid my family and I lived in Crested Butte, CO for a few years and we have gone back for a visit at least once a year ever since we moved back to this sauna state. The tiny little mountain town is possibly my favorite place on earth. CAN! NOT! WAIT! TO! BE! THERE!

I guess I should talk about my outfit too. Ha! 
It would have been awesome to have this dress on the 4th of July to have a holiday inspired ensemble but oh well. I absolutely love simple dresses for summer. When it is hot it is hard to layer and create intricate outfits because you will die of heat exhaustion ... literally. This one has such a fun understated stars and stripes pattern and I really like that they inverted the use of navy and white from the top to the bottom. Cute right?! 
My snakeskin pumps add a subtle pattern combo while still staying in the same color scheme. All in all I love it!
