The seashell print on this Steven Alan dress won me over before I even saw the sassy open back. Perfect for casual summer events.
I also bought this top at Steven Alan, although it's not their own line. I love the keyhole in the back, and this cute print is perfect back to white denim.
I have this Madewell dress in a different print, but this orange one is great too. The criss-cross back sits perfectly where your bra strap does... so easy to wear!
I have worn this Alice + Olivia dress to a bridal shower and a wedding - so beautiful and easy to wear casual or dressed up.
Here is a close-up of the back - sheer fabric, with a tie at the neck and then open to the waist.
I found this Funktional cobalt top at the fabulous boutique Acre/SF and loved the buttons all the way down the back.
Also by Funktional, this fun printed dress from Mira Mira (another go-to shop here in SF) has a great mid-back cutout... a fun surprise when you take off your cardi!
