Hope everyone had a great weekend! Lots of outdoor activities for me, biking specifically and a happy hour down at the beach. As fun as the latter was though, I woke up yesterday morning covered in no-see-um bites, which if you know anything about those nasty sand flies you know they are a million times worse than mosquito bites. Let me know if you have any remedies for the crazy itchiness they cause and most importantly how to keep them from biting without having to wear a product with Deet in it.

On a brighter note :) wearing an incredibly versatile slip dress in a fun animal print. This was one of those fabulous Zara finds that unfortunately is no longer available, but I’ve linked to several similar styles below. Dress this staple up or down with a simple change of shoes and bag and you have an effortlessly chic look that can take you from day to night.
