Vacation Pleats

I'm currently enjoying a lovely vacation with my family (hence the lack of CP's photo skills and outfit documentation). We're currently staying at my grandmother's house, but while we were in my town, we did some wine and beer tasting, a few pretty hikes at a nature preserve, a visit to a botanical garden, and we ate out... a lot. The above are some photos from our wine tasting adventure. I wore this Lush pleated dress from TJ Maxx that always looks soft and appropriate for classy vacation adventures. I paired it with a brand new blue Ruche belt that I just adore, a brown cardigan, as the weather was a bit chilly in the morning, and a strand of rose quartz my Mom brought for me from home. Top it off with some loafers and it felt summer-casual and not too overdone for a day wandering around Woodinville, Washington. 

Dress: Lush from TJ Maxx (similar); Cardigan: Loft; Shoes: Target; Necklace: Rose Quartz (similar); Belt: Ruche; Purse: Coach (similar)
