Wear your summer dresses now ladies. Soon the weather will change, and your favorite summer outfit will be too chilly to wear. I'm heeding my own advice and pulling out all my old favorites and wearing them even if there isn't a big occasion.
Let's talk shoes (since they are the only new thing I am wearing). This little fringe number form Steve Madden is perfection. I tried a BUNCH of lace-up sandals but nothing worked for me, until I found these. Fringe is just a bonus. The color is slightly metallic and works well with neutrals or brights.
The dress is a couple years old. I bought it at a boutique in Brooklyn called Tango and I love the lines of it. Sadly, there's nothing currently like this from DVF. You can check here on Nordstrom to see for yourself. The dress just needs pockets and it would be perfection. Even without them, it's still a favorite summer outfit!
Don't kill the messenger, but the clutch is long gone. I got at at Anthropologie two years ago, but this one is pretty swank too.
I'm going to stop and take a moment to tell you about this hair. This was day 3 of a blow out. The new Living Proof dry shampoo is awesome. I went running in the morning before this shoot and the dry shampoo was ideal to revive the style and freshen up my hair. I review Living Proof here.
Though you don't NEED an event to wear a dress, in fact, there WAS an event for this dress. Melissa and Denise, aka TheMoms.com, were hosting a Back to School party and celebrating the cover of New York Family. Toasting the success of a friend is always a reason to dress up! What better reason do you need to wear your favorite summer outfit?
