Remember when you had significantly more “going out” clothes as a 19-year old? Well, as a 23-year old myself, those days and those clothes are long-gone. So then what does a respectable lady such as yourself wear for adult cocktail hour or ladies night? Especially in the summer when it’s hot and kind of not?
I’ve got one option 🙂
The most obvious answer to any, “What do I wear?” question for summer style is a dress. And aside from the fact that I only own something like 5 dresses, I’m not mad about that 😛
Summer dresses are usually breezy, with light, breathable fabrics so when you pair that with heat and sweat, it’s a pretty swell route to go. This dress was a surprising find at GUESS.
I love how flattering the material and cut of the neckline is for my small chest. (Shoutout to the small-chested ladies.) It’s also in an a-line style so it’s quite flattering for the bigger-thighed gals.
Because I like a level of sophistication to my outfits, regardless of occasion, I paired this dress with this easy, white blazer – a staple colour for summer. I like how it contrasts nicely with the black and white dress. It’s also useful for when the breeze hits you at random times on these summer nights.
Finishing off the look, I’m wearing my favourite day-to-night watch from Daniel Wellington. I love the classic black leather band and the gold hardware against the white face. I also added this cognac bag – a colour I love for accessories – and these nude pumps to keep the summer vibes going.
We shot in Detroit’s Greektown because this outfit makes me think of large, lively crowds in small streets. I love the hanging lights and there’s a cute bakery I like to stop by whenever I’m in the area 🙂
