Summer is finally here!! What better way to spend a warm day this weekend then at South Street Seaport.
Summer to me means dresses! A fun, colorful dress is my top choice on warm or hot days and is a staple of my summer wardrobe. There are many variations and styles of dresses out there that you cannot go wrong.
I decided to take my maxi strapless dress from winter retirement back out in the sun for the first time today! Maxi dresses are usually my top pick because it is so easy to just slip on that combine comfort and trendy. Plus, their thin fabric and loose fitting style are perfect for those hot, humid, sticky days of summer.
I bought my maxi dress on sale a couple of summers ago at an independent NYC store called Purdy Girl. The bohemian pattern of the dress is what really caught my eye. I love the blend of deep green and maroon that just screams summer–plus it’s strapless–perfect for sunbathing. Haha. 🙂
Till next weekend’s adventure!
Yay! Finally a sunny weekend day, where I am not wearing tights and sweaters. 🙂 Sunday was the perfect day to be outside and the day I finally got to try out this pairing. It’s unusual, but I love it!
I love floral and flannel patterns. This pairing idea has been circling in my head for weeks. After I found this floral print dress at Old Navy, it really sealed the look together for me. As for the cardigan, it from Kohls and it’s usually my go-to cardigan for dresses or tank tops.
Both patterns are bold, but I believe that’s why they work well together. The white streaks of the flannel compliment the floral print causing the dress to just pop out immediately. Yet, the flannel pattern gives the look an overall casual feel. Rather than the flannel and floral pattern “battling” for the attention, the flannel just blends in with the dress. My choice of shoes needed to be simple to really pull this off. So I went with my gold flats from DSW, which look more nude than gold.
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Let’s hope for more sunny and warm weekends to come. Till next time. 😀
