Tank Girl


Happy Memorial Day! How are you muses spending the long weekend? As you can see by these photos (and on Snapchat), I spent a couple of my vacay days beach side in Florida. But now I'm actually in London taking in the city! Be sure to follow along with me on Snap (ohtobeamuse)! That's where all the fun happens! Did you see me and the hubs attempt Ninja Warrior obstacles? How about my common courtesy and Uber drivers rant? Seriously, Snapchat is where it's at for all the behind-the-scenes awesomeness.

Summer is so close, you can almost taste it! So if you're still looking for the perfect summer dress that's not an off shoulder piece, then this Watermelon Jessica Ruffle dress by Cooper & Ella is just the ticket! I knew I had to take it with me while I was spending a few days at Ft. Lauderdale beach. The lightweight material and effortless design are both beach and poolside ready, and you're sure to find more amazing styles like this at Cooper & Ella. FYI: remember when I shared this tank dress here? Well, it also comes in button down and ruffle cami form so you can share this fun watermelon print every which way!

Cool story, bro: Growing up I hated watermelon. I had it once and it was so bland that I was like, never again. I still ate cantaloupe and other melons, but swore off watermelon. The hubs has always loved the fruit and started eating it more and more in the last few months. I got a really delicious piece one day and now I totally love it. So damn refreshing!

Check out a couple of my other favorite Cooper & Ella pieces like this deep v mesh top and this shell top, too!
