Black, White and Backless

Good Morning Beauties! It's Friday and I am definitely looking forward to the weekend, I'm feeling a bit under the weather though so that's lame. I have a head cold, but it's starting to get better, I had a good work out yesterday, and ate a ton of spicy soup so that should do the trick. Is there anything worse than summer colds?!
Um, I need a haircut, as you can see by these photos. My hair is incredibly thick and with the humidity here lately it's unmanageable and heavy, thankfully I'm getting it thinned out this weekend, so hopefully it'll be looking a lot *tamer* in the future. I couldn't not share these photos with you guys though because this dress is pretty fantastic. Anyone who knows me knows I can't resist a dress with a cut out in the back. Better yet, this little number is lightweight cotton and has stripes. Perfect for those sticky summer days

  1. Summer colds are the worst! Ugh. And I feel you on the hair cut - I somehow have not visited my stylist in like 8 months and my hair is so heavy and weirdly shaped now. It's driving me nuts! Also, super cute dress - I love a basic black and white number.

  5. I can't believe there are people out there who need their hair 'thinned'. Give me some of that please! haha. But I know how horrible it is to have a lot of hair on your neck when it is hot and gross out, so I don't blame you.
    This dress is wonderful! I love that the stripes change direction from bodice to skirt, a fun touch.

  6. I love anything stripes, but this is just gorgeous. Plus, I like how the stripes seem even bolder and more statement-making with that pink purse too!

  9. I totally wish I had thick hair! My hair is super straight and fine so I have to style it to look somewhat nice. The back detail of your dress is gorgeous! I hope you feel better and enjoy the weekend :)

    1. It's nice to have thick hair until it's hot out, then it's a sweaty, headache inducing mess!
      Thank you!!

  10. This striped dress is awesome! It definitely screams your style with the cutout back. I love the vibrant bag you paired with it too.

  11. Love this dress! The cutout in the back is so cute. I'm sorry that you're feeling a bit sick- you should try putting a bit of garlic on a small cracker and putting honey in your tea. Garlic and honey always help clear out my sinuses!

  15. i know you said you need a haircut, but i love that it looks really thick!! maybe i just love big hair because mine is always flat? lol. but your hair is awesome.

    i just love black and white striped everything, but this dress is extra cool/modern because of the different sized stripes! so cute!

  16. I can completely sympathise with hot weather and thick hair problems, it doesn't matter what I do with mine lately, it just puffs up into a big, curly triangle. The worst. But who cares about hair problems when you had cute dresses - I love the backless detailling on this one, and that neon purse makes it really pop.

  17. So cute! I adore that dress on you, it's perfect. I have both fine and thick hair, so even though it doesn't have that gorgeous thick look like yours, it's still heavy and has me sweatin' to death in this heat!

    Hope you feel better! Summer colds really are the worst.

  18. What are you talking about!? I think your hair looks great. I'm jealous of the volume you have. Also, this dress has to go on my wishlist. It's adorable. I love the simple black and white and the cut-out in the back. Also, that neon bag is divine!
