This summer was amazing. We traveled. We stayed home. We sat by the pool. We read books. We made so, so many memories. Part of me is excited for school to start on Wednesday, and part of me is having trouble letting go. While I do love fall and sweater weather, there are certain summer dresses you can't give up.

Summer Dresses You Can't Give Up

This summer I found Oliphant boutique. It's a Litchfield County gem, and I'm still smitten with this Connecticut designer. The dresses I found are perfect. They are versatile, pretty and ready for travel. This particular sundress can be worn on the shoulder or off-the-shoulder. I love clever design touches like this.

Designer Cara Hotchkiss finds the most beautiful fabrics. This one has tiny gold sequins embellishing the soft coral cotton.

As I said, there's been a lot of pool time this summer. Throwing my hair up in a top knot has a been a good solution for the hottest days of summer. The earrings were picked up at the Manchester, VT outlets. The LOFT hoops were $5!

Now as for the dress, I'm not sure if it's still in stock. Since I found it in the boutique, I suggest you email or  contact for more shopping details.

Since the dress has a nice bit of sparkle, I didn't want to add too much else to my outfit. I've been wearing these Earth Shoes sandals all summer.
