The summer days are slipping away! Even though I am very excited to wear all my new and favorite fall pieces, my wardrobe is still screaming summer. Maybe it’s more like my heart is still in summer mood. So what do you do when you still want to wear your summer wardrobe, but it’s almost the end of the season? Just change it up a bit! I always look for new ways to refresh my wardrobe, specially when we are almost at the end of the season. Today I’m mixing things up and wearing this gorgeous maxi dress as a kimono with jeans. Why haven’t I created this look sooner?
There is a story behind this dress. Two years ago I spotted this dress on a woman and immediately LOVED it. She looked completely fabulous. I am one of those people that genuine compliments you on your outfit. I mentioned how gorgeous she looked and asked her where she got this dress from. Unfortunately, she didn’t want me to know where she got it from. Or maybe she didn’t want no one to copy. I’m the opposite, but I get it. Regardless, I ended up finding it found it on Amazon this past spring! How it is that I can remember a dress I spotted for a quick second from two years ago, but can’t remember what I ate for lunch yesterday?!
This dress has such a fun and beautiful floral and bird print with hints of red. I just can’t get enough of it. Never thought I’ll be the girl rocking bird print, but here I am. It’s the perfect maxi dress to wear in the summer. It’s lightweight and has such a good flow to it. And you know how fancy I get when the wind hits my dresses in the right angle 😉 So how can I refresh this dress for the end of the season? Instead of wearing it as a dress with heels and call it a day, I decided refresh this look and used this dress as a kimono over a bodysuit and jeans. You can definitely switch the heels and opt for mules or flats instead for a day wear.
How do you refresh your end of the summer wardrobe?
Happy Friday! Any weekend plans? This week seemed to go by fast. It feels like yesterday we were on the beach eating snacks and enjoying the sun. I took some days off of work this week to unpack, get things organized and get the kids ready for school. Which leaves my weekend a little free to enjoy a bit. Smart thinking!! Enjoy the weekend,
