Happy Monday friends! I am hoping you had a spectacular weekend. Mine was very relaxing, which was exactly what  I needed. On Saturday, Paolo and I went on a date to the most adorable {and delicious} French cafe and bistro, which is in an old home. The restaurant is located in a quaint neighborhood, where families walking by are within an arms reach from the patio lush with greenery and garden knick-knacks. Not only is the atmosphere wonderful, the food was mouth watering!

When we decided to check this eatery off of our bucket list, I knew this Nasty Gal maxi dress was perfect. I wanted a casual-yet-dressy feel, as I knew we’d be eating outside {and it was close to 90 degrees}. I love how this maxi has a slit in the front, and the back is essentially open, to help cool down in the summer. I felt as if the back was too low for dinner, so I added a bralett with great summer colors {to make this dress great for fall, just throw on a jean jacket}! The fit of the dress is a little looser, which is great for a casual look, but I wanted to add shape and structure, so I polished the look off with a skinny belt. Lastly, I added this great quilted bag my neighbor Susie made me! How cute is the stitching on the front? I am so grateful for this gift! Thank you Susie!

What is your go to summer-patio-dinner look?

Thank you for reading!
