SLIDER

Ruffle Neckline Dress

June 21, 2017









I've been sitting on these photos for what has seemed like weeks, but haven't had the time to write a post to accompany them until now! I was honestly planning on just not posting anything today on the blog again, but got a second wind last night at around 11pm, when I probably should've been heading to bed, and decided to get this post done! 

My internship is incredible and I truly love it so much, but it's definitely taken a toll on the amount of effort I am able to put into the blog. Though, while I haven't been posting too consistently lately, there's been a lot going on behind the scenes! Some things are happening that I am really excited for! I can't wait to share what I've been working on with you soon!

Now on to talking a little about this dress! If you head over to the link for it, you'll notice that there's actually extra "sleeves" (not really sure if they count as sleeves) to give this dress an added dimension and cold shoulder look.  To be honest, I was not a fan of how that aspect of the dress looked on me, so I actually just tucked them in! I could totally get them removed by a tailor, but for now this is working just fine! Otherwise, this dress in one of my favorites because it's not only blue and white (my favorite color combo to wear), but the neckline is just gorgeous! I love the look of the crossover ruffle because it's so elegant and girly.

All In The Accessories

June 15, 2017







Skirt / Top / Scarf (old) / Bag / Shoes 

My hair is up today! That's something you don't see everyday over here on Dash of Serendipity.  Honestly, I hate having my hair up, especially for photos.  But, this outfit felt like it needed something a little different so I decided to mix it up!

This outfit is great because the top and skirt are so simple that they can easily be accessorized with different bright pieces, like this cute Lilly Pulitzer scarf.  I can imagine myself wearing this with bright earrings, or even bright shoes! 

If you're looking for a similar scarf, I'd try searching on eBay or poshmark for a Lilly Pulitzer Square silk scarf! This one was purchased at the warehouse sale a few years ago, but I'm confident you would be able to track it down somewhere online.

An Inexpensive Off the Shoulder Top

June 12, 2017









How adorable is this off the shoulder top? I can't believe it's just $16!! Now it's from SheIn, which is a website I normally run far away from, but sometimes I do find myself looking through the website.  Most times though I convince myself not to purchase anything because I have not liked anything I've ever purchased from the website. Either the item did not fit at all (usually weirdly proportioned) or the quality was terrible.  

I don't know what made me want to take the chance and order this top, but I'm so glad I did! It runs a little big so I'd recommend going a size down.  I wish I had because I feel like this top is a little too roomy towards the bottom on me.  

If you like the pom pom bracelets I'm wearing here, make sure you following me on Instagram for more info coming later this week on how you could win your own pom pom bracelets!!

Blue Embroidery

June 8, 2017









If I haven't already convinced you that Zara might just be the greatest store ever from my last few outfits (remember this all white ensemble from earlier this week and this adorable embroidered off the shoulder top?).  My friends and I all have the problem of not being able to leave Zara empty handed.

I brought these two pieces into the dressing room not thinking I would ever wear them together.  But because this skirt was the only bottom that I brought in with me, I decided to try it on with the top to move a little faster in the dressing room.  To my surprise, this outfit worked perfectly!

June Playlist

June 6, 2017

Yesterday I started my summer internship in New York! I'm so excited but definitely a little nervous too.  Starting something new is always daunting, but I keep reminding myself that it's completely normal to be nervous.  I'm so excited for the opportunity I have this summer, to be working for an amazing company that I truly admire, that it honestly hasn't felt real yet.

Last summer I spent far too many hours on the train commuting from New Jersey and back each day.  I pretty much listened to the same playlist everyday the entire summer, which ended up being so comforting to listen to the same songs as I started and ended my days.

I'm truly loving the playlist I put together this month and can totally see it becoming my go-to commuting playlist this year. I've discovered Khalid recently and I can't stop listening to 8TEEN. It's such a good song!

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic 2017

June 5, 2017









Top / Shorts / Sunglasses / Earrings / Bag / Scarf / Shoes (old: Steve Madden)

I had so much fun this past Saturday at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park, just across the river from NYC. I have been wanting to go to the polo classic for the past few years, but didn't get around to getting tickets until this year. It was so much fun, even more fun that I would've expected. It was such a great opportunity to see some amazing outfits.  Everyone was extremely well dressed, which made it a lot of fun to people watch.

Before this weekend I had never seen polo being played and I was surprised by how fun it was! I didn't entirely know what was going on, but it was so cool to see that the teams were made up of both men and women! The entire day was so much fun and I'm looking forward to going again.

Ever since I bought my ticket a few months ago, I had my outfit on the back of my mind because I knew that I had to wear something that I loved. I actually found the perfect outfit at Zara (which seems to be the only place I want to shop at recently!).  I bought these shorts (or skort I guess) a few months ago online.  I didn't really know what I would wear them with until I was back in Zara last week and saw the shorts in-store next to a seemingly matching top! The top is the exact same material and color so I decided to try it on together and absolutely loved the way it looked.

Two piece tops are so fun because it leaves people guessing whether it's a dress or two pieces.  I received so many comments from y'all saying you loved the outfit so I wanted to make sure I linked the exact styles on here since they are a little hard to find on the Zara website!
