If there’s one piece of clothing that’s always in my suitcase for spring and summer travel, it’s an easy, casual dress that can be worn from daytime to dinner. And this season, I’m loving this Lauren Gabrielson T-Shirt Dress in blush. I packed it and wore it here on my recent trip to South Carolina, and again in NYC with a jacket since it was still a little chilly here. T-shirt dresses can sometimes be hit or miss depending on how they’re made, but the quality of this dress is so great. The material is a high-quality, soft stretch cotton-jersey. The close fit and ruching detail on the sides make it super flattering, and it’s double-lined giving it extra thickness so you don’t have to worry about it being too thin or see-through.
The designer, Lauren, lives in Williamsburg where all her designs are made locally by seamstresses in their Brooklyn factory. This gives them the ability to customize any piece from the collection in a custom color and fabric of your choosing. How fun is this custom bomber jacket with hand-stitched embroidery? Another perfect piece for travel!

And how cute is this restaurant, Sel Rrose? It’s an adorable little oyster and cocktail bar with Parisian vibes and a great atmosphere, located in the Lower East Side. A highly recommended spot for happy hour!
