stripes on fleek

{ What I Wore to the library: J.Crew Factory striped dress (love the back details!) // Madewell tote (gift with purchase) - not available in stores, but I have linked my favorite totes below! // Jack Rogers sandals (if you are in the market for a pair of these, but can't decide which color, I suggest "platinum" - it goes with everything!) // Ray Ban sunglasses // Kendra Scott necklace ℅ (now available in rose gold!) }

Shop The Post + my favorite striped dresses from J.Crew Factory:

High on my Summer bucket list is to read as many books as possible (book reviews coming soon!). I know there are many people that like having books around their house, but I am just not one of those people. I like my books either on my Kindle, or checked out from the library. So in my pursuit of crossing items of my reading list, I made my way down to the Nashville Public Library. After 6 years of living in Nashville I am ashamed to say that I am just now the proud holder of a library card, & can't believe that I hadn't made it into the GORGEOUS downtown library in all these years!

Even if you aren't into checking out borrowed books, if you are in Nashville, you must take an afternoon to enjoy the downtown library. It has a Provence Cafe inside, & they let you take books out to the courtyard to read (without having a card/having to check them out officially).

The inside is all grand staircases & marble, and there are some pretty impressive exhibitions, with one of the current displays including art & stories from the author/illustrator of "Where the Wild Things Are", Maurice Sendak.
My summer bag style definitely falls into the "tote" territory. This Madewell canvas bag has been serving as my library bag, while I cannot live without my J.Crew straw tote for the pool, or my Nisolo leather tote for travel. I am also super impressed by the adorable new "cooler" bags that are available, like this watermelon one from Ban.do, or the gold foil Kate Spade one! Decisions, decisions!

What is your Summer bag situation like??
