One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” -Henry Miller
This is the first quote in the travel journal I picked up at T.J. Maxx a while back. Well, technically it may be the second or third, Leo thought the travel journal was a chew toy and shredded the first two pages (luckily he got bored with it and moved on to his actual chew toy), but I digress…
This quote really resonated with me when I first read it because it is just so true. I am always amazed how visiting new places can open my eyes to so much and truly change my way of thinking. This is a big reason why I feel traveling is so healthy and important for everyone to do because it helps you get out of your bubble, open your mind, and realize there is a much bigger picture. Right? With every trip I take, big or small, whether it be a road trip here in Texas or a flight across the world, I see the world a little different. What do you think?
The reason I bring up all of this travel talk is #1, traveling is always on my mind… and #2, this little black dress from Nordstrom is the perfect piece for an upcoming summer vacation! The cut is so flattering and the embroidered appliques give it such a feminine touch. It comes in black, white, and a pretty pale pink color but the best part is that it’s currently 40% off making it UNDER $40! Which basically means if you love it you should probably get it in another color because this is the kind of vacation dress that never goes out of style. I’m thinking about getting the white one to take to Mexico!
I paired this little black summer dress with my favorite lace-up heels, panama hat (the ultimate vacation accessory for under $15!), and this gorgeous Henri Bendel bag covered in tiny pompoms. So cute, right? The clutch also comes in white and there’s a beach tote version that comes in black, pink, and white! It’s a little on the pricier side but is currently 30% off + a free gift!
I can definitely see myself rocking this dress in Mexico with a pair of flat sandals or barefoot on the beach. Such a versatile dress that can be casual enough for the beach and dressy enough for a fancy moonlit dinner. Unfortunately a good sale never lasts so I’d hurry up and order this little black summer dress before they start selling out!
