Summer makes me so happy, I really don’t want it to ever end. I know, I know… I live in LA and there is nothing too severe about the other three seasons here. I am just one of those people that loves going to the beach, loves warm and light evenings, eats watermelon and peaches till her tummy feels like exploding, and is willing to deal with the insane mid-day heat in order to reap the rest of the benefits of summer. And “YES!” dresses are one of those benefits.
Today’s look is inspired by comfort–a level of easy wear that is pretty at the same time–a win-win in my books. The main act is the Blue Off Neckline Long Sleeve 3/4 Length A Line Women’s Dress by us.vip.com. It is so chic, girly and pleasant to wear! I also adore all the details this dress wows us with:
- Off the shoulder with a twist–not in your most traditional and expected way, the OTS detail here looks like a shirt collar and adds so much visual interest to this piece. There also are straps which help hold the dress up and camouflage your bra straps, however if you don’t like the strap look you can hide those just as successfully.
- Top button front–a major trend this summer, which also draws your eye to the dress without screaming loudly at all.
- Pockets–ahhh, any dress with pockets makes me smile. I also love the pocket flap and button detail present here–somehow it adds an unexpected semi-formal twist to this chic dress.
- Draw string waist line–makes it easy to define the thinnest part of your body and looks good even after a Sunday brunch! 😉
- A-line silhouette and soft material–the combination of those two produces a swing dress that makes me want to twirl and twirl like a little girl in the middle of a candy store. The fabric is so soft–real pleasure to wear.

Happy August, lovelies!
Hello lovelies and happy new week!
Have you though about replacing your beach cover up with an actual dress? I tend to do that almost 90% of the time as I like having an outfit that can carry me trough the day, from a morning/afternoon playing in the sand and the waves to an early dinner or drinks at my favorite food and cocktail spot.
Meet my latest partner in beach-going to restaurant-hopping crime – the SHEIN Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress. She is cute, fun and easy-going, breads in sunshine and exhales vacation vibes! She is made with 100% cotton material and her light and breezy fit and flare silhouette is sure to keep you cool while looking hot! 😉 The body of this beautiful A-line dress is made by an eyelet fabric, trimmed by gorgeous lace around the hem, sleeves and the V-neckline. This combo creates a floral-like, soft, monochrome effect which is eye-catching and ropes you in with gentleness and femininity. This dress comes in two colors–the blush I am wearing and a white–which is equally as pleasing and visually appealing.

Would you wear the Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress to the beach? Would love to hear what you think.
How has your summer been? Enjoying the sun, warm temperatures, vacation time and travel? I certainly hope so!
I don’t always wear red during summer, however I fell in love with the romantic nature of this Ruffle Strap & Hem Button Up Dress
and decided to give red a chance this season. Doesn’t it combine beautifully with my straw bag
to create a fun, beach- or farmer’s-market-inspired look? This dress
is very detail-rich and yet feels simple and elegant. The ruffle straps and hem bring femininity and charm, the button front brings it right on trend, the delicate print allows for numerous combinations with white, black or red accessories, the draw string at the waist hugs your figure at the narrowest portion of your body, the midi-length gives it a sophisticated flair–all those come together to create a pretty and classy piece
one can wear to brunch, the beach and even to work. I also like the overall vintage charm this dress
posses–it makes me feel like a lady! 🙂
What are some of the colors you have opened up to wearing this summer? Leave me a comment to let me know.
How is your summer going thus far? I have been away from the blog a bit as I took a trip to Austria last week. Vienna is such a great city and it sure reminded me of all the gorgeousness, history and beautiful architecture a European city possesses. The weather was warm and pleasant, which made me think of all the pretty and trendy dresses this summer’s fashion is gifting us with.
If you were a kid or a teen in the 90’s, you’ll remember that button front skirts and dresses were big then. Guess what!? They are back for some more action and admiration, and I am digging the trend for the second time in my life. Shein totally nailed it with this button front cami dress. It comes in three different colors, is made out of linen (perfect fabric for summer), the shift cami cut feels breezy and light, and the tea length allows you to pair this gorgeous dress with either flats, sneakers (for a casual day look), kitten heels or pumps (for afternoon/evening sophistication). The details are very charming as well–who doesn’t love pockets on their dress, I also like the high waist and heavily pleated skirt attached to it (allows for a delicious brunch on a Sunday ;)).
Have you checked Shein’s summer dress collection yet? So many cute pieces.
Happy rest of the week friends!
I have missed you all. Please, excuse my absence, life has been pretty fast-pace lately. Exciting new changes that I would perhaps share next time as this post is all about WHITE!
As summer is surely approaching we are all pulling out our favorite white articles of clothing, be it jeans, tops, skirts, shots, dresses–it is the season to be in white! If you love what you have, but are looking to expand your while repertoire then I have the dress for you. Just could not pass up this beautiful, cotton, fit and flare beauty from SHEIN. It is feminine and flirty, soft and airy, with an eye-catching cut out fabric, accentuating the waist and pretty stand collar. I am wearing a size small and am happy with the fit.
This dress pairs beautifully with any color accessories–blue (for a Santorini feel), blush, cream, red, even black (for a Parisian look), but there is something about white on white that spells “vacation, beach, warm nights, fresh breeze” and embodies all things SUMMER. Given that I crave that feeling, I paired the Ruffle Cuff Guipure Lace Overlay Dress, with white pumps and a white clutch.

Till next time lovelies. Love always,
