Romantic Vibes & Perfect Summer Dress
It’s officially summer in Austin, or at least it feels like it. It seemed like we were having a lovely Spring with cool mornings, a warm day here and there, and nice cool evenings. That was until I woke up and felt like I got smacked in the face with a hot frying pan of incredibly hot Texas heat. And by that, I mean it’s getting up in the 90s… (*insert rolling eyes emoji*) I know we have much warmer weather in store for us as June/July/August roll along, but this heat AND humidity has got me. Idk about you, but I feel personally victimized by Regina George — I mean, this hot, hot weather. Just kidding! But in all seriousness, it’s making me mentally adjust from dressing for a slightly cool-temperature day with nice weather, to an extremely hot, muggy day.
So now that the summer heat is in full effect, I’m pulling out my lighter clothes and moving all my lighter dresses towards the front of my closet. Now my fall and winter sweaters are just a fond, fond memory.
A dress that I’ve been obsessed with this Spring and Summer, has been this gorgeous lil number:
I absolutely love this dress! It has all the soft romantic feels, and when I wear it on a hot Summer day, I don’t ever have regret living in Texas.
Some of the details I love most about this dress is the soft nudie-pink color, the gorgeous, romantic embroidery, and the flattering cut and shape of the dress. TBF (i.e. to be fair) I was a little hesitant about the color. I was worried that 1) it would wash me out and 2) I was worried the color would be too similar to my skin tone and make me look naked lol! Ha! What a thought! Obviously, I worry about nonsense because neither of those things are an issue. The soft pink looked beautiful with my skin tone, and really gave off all the romantic feels. The shape of the dress is universally flattering, and features a tie-cinched high-waist, and button details all the way down. Not to mention the gorgeous embroidery detail! The embroidery was a soft ivory color that didn’t take away from the dress, but gave the dress a dreamy, modern-day Disney princess feel. I felt like I could twirl around all day and sing to all my animal friends who would come out and help me clean my entire house and bake all the goodies in the world and end world hunger. In other words: dress goals!
With the deep plunging neckline of the dress, I decided to go with delicate chandelier earrings that feature gorgeous beaded flowers that also framed my face. Keeping with the romantic-whimsical feel of the dress, I paired my pink shell sunglasses, pearl wrap bracelet, bamboo clutch (that you are seeing all over the ‘gram), and my super comfy ivory wedges.
