I first wore this dress back in Spring when Nate and I went on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs. I wore it once more after that, but as soon as Summer arrived, I didn't think I'd have much use for it until the weather cooled down. Luckily, there's a big drop in temperature here once the sun sets, so I decided to give it a go again for a night out last week. I love little dresses with long sleeves - there's just something so sophisticated about them! I also love that these sleeves are sheer, so you get the look without too much added warmth. Although I love the bright orange color now, I have a feeling I'll be wearing this dress even more come Fall.

But that won't be for awhile!

I may be in the minority here, but I'm not ready to say goodbye to Summer. I've been inundated with cardigans, tunics, jeans, and booties on my social media feeds for what seems like weeks now and I am not here for it. I totally understand the excitement surrounding a new season, but it's physically impossible for most of us to wear anything other than sundresses, shorts, and swimsuits. Honestly, the mere thought of a sweater makes me itch! I love Summer, and I don't want it to end. For the first time in years I actually managed to get a tan, and I plan on showing it off until I turn back into my pasty, ghostly, self come October. Summer makes me genuinely happy, it always has. It gives me a sense of freedom that I don't normally feel throughout the year, and it makes me want to try new things and experience a little adventure. So while you won't see Fall content on this blog anytime soon, I hope you'll be in the moment with me as I continue savoring one of the best Summers I've ever had.

Are you still enjoying Summer, or are you ready for Fall? 

Linking up with I Do DeClaire. 


  1. First, I'm glad to hear you say this is one of the best summers you've had! I think our weather has been extra nice this summer (so far) too, which added to my enjoyment. Your wrap dress is fabulous and I love long sleeves with shorts or short skirts so this is perfect. Great color, too! I don't recall seeing you in orange before but it's really flattering on you.

  2. So happy you are having a great Summer, you look gorgeous in that color. I am so ready for Summer to be over but that's because I'm in South Florida and Summer here is pretty much hell lol. So soon I'll actually enjoy being outside.


  3. Team summer forever here! I love your dress, the color, the cut, sleeves are always great too! I'm happy to see much more summer content, I think anyone going out in 80 degrees to shoot sweaters is nuts.
