Shopping in the juniors department is always a risk. As a 25 year old, I find that a lot of juniors items are pretty tight and very short. A teenager, I am not. And the prices are great, but the quality is sometimes not there. That being said, I do give the juniors department a try every now and then.
I bought this scalloped dress hoping that it would be a fun summer dress, and it is. 100%. The length is exactly “mid-thigh,” long enough where I feel comfortable and short enough to have some fun. It’s lightweight and comfortable to wear. It runs true to size, but if you’re in between sizes I’d definitely consider going up– especially if you’re larger chested.
The first night we were in Mexico, we ate outside for a Mexican fiesta the hotel put together. A little cheesy and every bit amazing. (I love a good mariachi band.) I picked this dress because it was colorful and felt very festive for the occasion! Plus a touch of monogrammed tortoiseshell.
I ended up borrowing my sister’s crossbody bag! Can you believe that it’s under $20? Love this similar option as well.
There’s nothing better than eating outside near the beach. Something about that salty air just makes great food taste even better and amazing company even more enjoyable. It also does wonders for the hair… Beach hair just can’t be replicated!

Sadly the dress has been tucked to the back of my closet while I wait for warmer weather here in NYC. It’s definitely a great summer dress and I know it will get lots of love in a few months!
