This weekend I headed back to Sausalito, only this time for an afternoon boat ride with friends. I got to the docks early so I could get this shoot in before we disembarked. The town of Sausalito is such a fun place to go in the Bay Area. There is just so much to do from taking a bike ride, to sailing or just enjoying lunch. One of my favorite spots is Bar Bocce because I consider it one the best casual dining experiences in the bay. It’s great place to hang out and unwind with friends on a warm, summer day.

Beyond Basic Blog Seersucker in Sausalito Armani Exchange Shirt Dress Beyond Basic Blog Seersucker in Sausalito Armani Exchange Shirt DressUsually if I’m going to wear something casual and want to look put together, I wear a simple and sweet shirt dress. I spottedΒ this one on sale at Macy’s for under $100 and had to have it in my closet. I love the skirt of dress because it flares out. It is definitely an interesting take on a classic. To finish off the look, I added my bright red Chloe bag, tied a white cardigan around my waist and added a pair of silver sneakers.

The seersucker material instantly gives off nautical vibes. I also tagged a few of my favorite classic shirt dresses at the bottom of this post. All of the dresses are under $100 and you cannot pass them up. I truly believe that shirt dresses are essential pieces to any growing wardrobe.

Sausalito is one of my favorite places in the Bay! Next time you’re there you should try Fish. They have the most delicious oysters and fish & chips!

Love this “preppy” nautical look. The shirt dress is really pretty!

Such a score on that fabulous dress, girlie; gotta love Macy’s, they really do have some great deals! I love the way you’ve styled it here with the pop of red in the bag and the white sneakers. I’ve heard so many great things about Cali, which I’ve never been, but want to so desperately after seeing so many amazing photos and all there’s to do outdoors! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great day so far!
