Happy Monday! I hope y’all enjoyed celebrating Independence Day, Canada Day, or just the weekend in general. I spent my weekend soaking up the sun and walking around the city to see some of the celebrations. It was lovely seeing people enjoy themselves and the house mounted flagpoles flying the flag made the streets look beautiful. I did also find some time to catch up on some work (including blogging, thank goodness).
I was eager to do my homework this weekend, since I just started a challenging and fun part of my web design program, similar to a co-op. I’ve been assigned a client, and I get to work with them to design a new website for their small business. The catch is that there isn’t a lot of time, especially considering the fact that I’m still learning, and I’m no professional like the ones in web designing agencies such as https://thewebdesignercardiff.co.uk/. However, I’m confident the site I’m building is going to be awesome. My client and I had our first phone call over the weekend and it sounds like we have a similar vision in mind. I can’t wait to start sharing some ideas. (Yes, I’m a nerd sometimes).
On another note, it’s a beautiful day, and my outfit today is simple and perfect for summer.
Earlier in the season, I was on the hunt for a versatile little white dress, but I wasn’t having a lot of luck. I don’t do my best shopping when I’m looking for a specific item, so it doesn’t surprise me that I couldn’t find anything to buy. Any time I went shopping, I’d find dresses that didn’t fit me correctly, weren’t the right style, or worst of all, fell outside of my price point.
Eventually, I was able to find the perfect little white dress and I used Dressometry to help with the search. Dressometry is a unique website that helps focus the search for the right dress (and shoes), by filtering through a number of online stores at once. You can filter by colour, price point, or even level of “scandal.” Once you find the dress you want, they direct you to the retailer’s site, and you finish the ordering process there. Easy!

How awesome that you’re enjoying school! Learning about something that you really enjoy makes all the difference. And what a cool concept this Dressometry! Your dress is so pretty and fits great!
I really didn’t like what I was studying the last time I was in school, so it really does make all the difference.
Love to hear that your enjoying everything your learning! Sounds like things are going great for you!! Thanks so much for sharing about dressometry! Sounds like that site takes out the stress in shopping! This white dress is such a great find! It is super cute and love that it is versatile!
I’m really happy to be loving school, but talk to me in a few months. I’m still figuring out what comes next 😉
If you haven’t heard of Dressometry before, I’m glad I was able to introduce you!
You look amazing! This is just the perfect white dress.

Instructive piece. I myself have no experience but I can imagine that it really affects your life.
What a perfect LWD look, Jackie! It looks great with the denim vest and fedora. And I’m loving that bright pink lip! So cute!

It’s so much fun to play with bold lipsticks in summer….or anytime, isn’t it? 🙂
This is such a cute outfit! I love the white dress with this jean vest, and that necklace is a stunner!

Such a gorgeous dress! I love the detailing on the bottom!
Thank you! I loved the detailing too because it makes it just that extra bit more special.
Aww sounds like school is going well!! Your going to kill that project just like you are killing this outfit!
Aww thanks Tori! Your comment brought a smile to my face 🙂
Thst dress is so cute! I feel like I’m always trying to find the perfect dress, so that website sounds great! I’m definitely going to check it out!

I’m a graphic design student and I think I have a class coming up where we work with clients, too-I’m excited, I do a ton of freelance work so I’m looking forward to getting more client experience!
So versatile. Love the way you styled this dress.
How exciting! That sounds like a fun project. What is really hard is when you have a completely different idea of what your client needs, (and their idea is TERRIBLE). Love that white dress. It looks so cute with the denim vest!
Linda Quinones says
Love this dress. I’m a sucker for any clothing in white and I love how you styled it with the denim vest and all the accessories. So beautiful and your homework project sounds like so much fun!! Challenging, but definitely fun. Looking forward to hearing about the outcome!

I think you did the white dress better than cupcakes and cashmere today! love it!
You look radiant! I love the classic white dress with a lace twist and the fact you belted it! I have been wanting a great denim vest all summer and I think you just officially sold me on the idea. Hope you’re having a great week so far! XO
Loving a jean vest over the white dress… totally something I can recreate!!
I agree, this is the perfect white summer dress! Adorable styling and accessorizing!
