I spent the weekend up in Carmel with my roommate (@TravelExcuse) and Mia (@thehuskymia) for a quick weekend getaway. It was definitely a quick one and we would have benefited from an extra day there. We drove up Friday night afternoon and made it just before midnight. We spent the day enjoying all that Carmel had to offer on Saturday, including the lavender festival which was the main reason why we chose to head to Carmel this weekend. I’ll share more of my trip to Carmel later this week with details on hotels, restaurants to try and things to do.

I recently posted a photo of this floral skortĀ dress on my social media and it got so much attention for engagement shoots and wedding guests that I wanted to share it with all. It’s the perfect dress to wear to one of these occasions or simply out on the weekend and it comes at the perfect price tag. Luckily, I haven’t had to spend too much money on friends getting engaged and further married (quite yet) but I’ve heard the common complaint of having to buy dresses for different occasions, overall spending a lot of money on dresses. I’ve linked some of my favorite floral skort dresses as well as floral dresses that won’t break the bank.
