This striped chambray dress is perfect for summer. From the Loft!

Nothing says easy and casual like a chambray dress, and this striped chambray dress from the Loft is no exception (it also comes in a top version that would be perfect with white shorts or pants!). The material is really light and a little bit loose so it is perfect for the summer heat. Plus, I love the fact that all you have to do is throw on the dress and your outfit is 80% complete. I've linked up some more chambray dresses below (I love this floral one and it's on sale)… after this first one, I think I'm hooked!

On another note, today is my birthday… I am officially 24! It's a little scary how time flies after college, isn't it? I don't have too many big plans for today other than dinner with my family tonight. I don't know what it is about my birthday, but I usually end up crying on this day and always have. I hate it! Here's to hoping I make it through today without tears!

  23. Happy Birthday..I definitely am now getting more and more ambivalent about birthdays..this year was 25 and I was more sad at the fact I wasn't where I'd thought I'd be than happy at another year. I hope you don't cry, and if you do, just eat a lot of cake!

  29. Happy Birthday Cait!

    I'm obsessed with the entire Lou & Grey line for LOFT. If you have a chance, try on their shorts. They are seriously the most comfortable thing I have ever owned. Not to mention they are super cute.
