Electric Blue

14 August 2011













For those scorching hot summer days, simply a dress is really all you need. I am just in love
with the pleated bottom on this dress, and the sheer detailing on the collar is a nice touch.
Plus, you can't go wrong with this fun electric blue color. I threw on this Brixton hat and was
basically out the door. Minimum accessories needed. Sometimes that is what I love about
summer! Although I will admit- I am getting quite antsy for fall to arrive. Hurry up
weather gods!

Anyways, I am so happy it is Sunday and I am just going to let the day roll and
take it easy. Lazy Sundays are the best, and I sure haven't had one in quite some time.
Hope yours is lovely as well!

Such a lovely simple outfit. I love navy...so much softer than black. And the little details on this dress are so pretty. Hope you enjoy your lazy Sunday :)

Amazing outfit + i love that hat!

Meganne said...

You're so right! It's been in the 100's for the past month and all I can seem to put on is a dress. It's far too hot for jeans or pants and clingy shirts.
Beautiful as always!

That colour really suits you :)

I'm feeling the opposite of you right now. I can't wait for the warmer weather and Spring is just around the corner and I couldn't be happier! I do love winter but I've had enough of the cold now and I'm ready for some lighter layers.

Jen said...

Love this look. Totally loving the hat. <3

simply gorgeous, this is how I love hats to be worn: understated, as a way to compliment an outfit but not overpower it. Fierce!
