I’m finally back, everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts last week; both summer and an increasing amount of work finally caught up to me, so I decided to take the week off. But onto things that truly matter: The past couple of days have been heaven, as far as summertime weather goes. It’s barely been above 80, with (mostly) blue skies all the way. And while I’m definitely not complaining, it’s hard to get used to summer days that don’t have me dying from humidity and heat the way they used to in North Carolina.
In any case, I’ve been trying to take advantage of the cooler weather, and that certainly applies to my wardrobe. I don’t often get to wear dresses with sleeves in July, but yesterday was the perfect opportunity to throw on one of my favorite LBDs with a pair of caged heels and a bright red lip. Paired with a jeweled clutch—which I made myself; stay tuned for the simple tutorial!—it was a classic-meets-glam ensemble that’s practically made for date night.
Though this will probably be the last time I can wear something like this until September, I’m just happy I got one last chance to pull this basic beauty out before fall.
Have you been working any fall pieces into your summer wardrobe?
