At last, we are finally seeing full weeks of beautiful sunshine without the surprise of snow in the forecast (knock on wood). Bikers accessorized with leather, convertibles with their tops down, grills are dusted off, and a slew of grad parties, picnics, outdoor concerts, and road trips are already scheduled in for the coming months. Yep, summer is a’comin’! And ladies, what’s a summer without a good ol’ summer dress?
I love, love, love dresses with a basic silhouette like this because it’s so easy to get up and go with especially when its fabric is convenient and you don’t have to iron it. And while this dress clearly looks like it’s from the ’90s, bright colors with floral NEVER ceases to get me all giddy inside. Whether you’re a heels or sandals kinda girl or hair down or twisted in a quick bun, it’s so simple to look like you actually put in the effort, and let’s be honest, with this kind of weather, all we want is to be outside, right?!
Remember, summer does not have to equal immodesty! It’s humid and we get sweaty. I get it. But it is possible to still look hot when it’s HOT (hah). Take a look at Liz’s post from her blog Downtown Demure. She and 12 other modest fashion bloggers give their tips on how to look cool while staying cool when it’s the temperatures are anything but.
Have a great weekend!
