It is already August and I can't quite believe it... Summer is coming to an end and I have put together one of my favorite outfits I've worn this season. This Summer I have been wearing mostly light colors and pastels. Dresses have been a huge part of my wardrobe this season because of how feminine and easy breezy they are, especially if the fabric is cotton. You can find beautiful dresses at places like Free People or Urban Outfitters. Although these are great stores, they can be on the more pricy side.
The dress I'm wearing in the photos below is from a brand called Taylor & Sage that I found at Belk. I love this dress because of how nicely the color compliments the season. It is a beautiful peachy pastel shade that simply screams, "Hello summer!" The dress is very lightweight as well so you won't be feeling too hot in the heat. I find that cotton is the best fabric to wear during this time of year because it is breathable and soft. The off the shoulder trend is one I've been loving and is incorporated in the dress. The bottom of the dress has a really interesting pattern and texture that adds a delicate vibe to the look. The awesome thing about this dress is that you can dress it up or dress it down. I chose to compliment it with a pair of wedges from a brand called Report. The wedges have floral detailing that creates an even more summery flare. I am a pretty short person so with longer dresses, I tend to wear wedges or heels. I decided to pair simple accessories with this ensemble because of how detailed the dress is. My earrings I paired with the look are vintage, and my watch is Kim Rodgers. The purse I chose to wear with this outfit is from Pratesi Firenze, a leather handbag brand made in Italy.
As far as makeup goes, I kept my eyeshadow natural and wore a pop of pink on my lips. Summer was filled with fun, colorful looks and Fall will be filled with... well you'll just have to check back and see!
