Easy, Breezy

DSCN1973DSCN1975DSCN1985DSCN1987IMG_2643In the heat of summer there’s only one way to keep it cool when you can’t get to the beach… sundresses!

I’ve always had the hardest time finding cute summer frocks on a budget of a full-time student, part-time ice cream scooper, but the sale rack has always been my best friend. This dress is breezy take on the ever-popular swing dress which I really feel can compliment every body type. I was wary to try one on at first because I was convinced I would look like a was wearing a sac, but now, as much as I shouldn’t admit this, I have at least three hanging in my closet (or lying across my bed, take your pick).

The small, receptive pattern of this American Eagle dress instantly drew my attention. I felt that because of the high, halter neck I felt accessories should be kept to a minimal so I attempted to enhance the boho-vibe with an old pair of gold leaf earrings and my favorite Alex and Ani bangles.

Summer is a season to go bolder and play with colors so I thought, why not take a risk and live colorfully?

(Fun fact: Live colorfully is also the slogan of one of my favorite brands – and the designer of my purse seen in my last postKate Spade.)

Hopefully you’re not all boiling in this July scorcher, and yes, my makeup and hair both melted shortly after these photos were taken!


Until next time!
