Maybe it’s the fact that this dress is slightly flight “attendantesque”, but something about it makes me want to travel. Whatever the reason, it’s a great dress to pack for your next trip. The fabric is structured enough to hold it’s shape, but does not wrinkle easily. As you can see, all you need is a pair of snazzy boots and a colorful scarf, and you are good to go.
Dress from Macys.com. Boots are Fly London, but no longer available.
I am not ready for summer to end. Retailers are really pushing their fall lines, but it’s still 90 degrees here! Why are we rushing the end of summer? There are still weeks left of barbecues, swimming, and ice cream. I don’t want to think about wool, sweaters, or jackets right now. On the other hand, I am willing to break out a pair of Frye boots and pair them with a summery dress. I think this outfit screams summer, but I have to admit it will transition nicely into the fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall, just not when it interferes with my summer.
I found this dress on the clearance rack at Target, but there are tons of printed casual dresses available online. Check out Madewell.com , OldNavy.com, and Loft.com. I think all of these dresses would be great with boots and a scarf. Similar Frye boots available at 6pm.com.
