Anyone else feeling refreshed after the long holiday weekend? Hope everyone had some time off and was able to enjoy their holiday. I’m back and ready to hit the ground running because these next two months are going to be busy – in a good way! I’m so excited for upcoming travel and some new and exciting things in the works for Pretty Petals.

In the meantime, I’ve been living in this tie-waist dress from Forever 21. Although sold out online, you may still be able to find it in stores (I just saw a few yesterday in-store). But I’m also craving a similar style in this chambray version – and it’s on sale! I love that it can be dressed down in sandals or knee-high gladiators, or dressed up in a pair of single-sole heels for a sleek look. I also adore this style with booties – currently loving this budget friendly style.

Don’t forget to check out The Shop for my updated selection of findings online. Tons of great affordable options to keep your wallet and closet happy.
