Sweet Summer Day

Summer is officially here!  Today is the first day of summer, and to celebrate I wanted to feature my favorite summer dress.  I just got this sundress from Last Call, which is my newest online shopping obsession.  They sale high end designer brands like Neiman Marcus, Diane Von Furstenburg, and Michael Kors at discounted prices.  I’ve been snagging all sorts of items for summer, including the dress seen here.

To say I’m excited for summer to begin is an under statement.  All year I look forward to the barbecues, July fourth events, pool parties and vacations that come with the warmer weather.  This summer is going to be a good one!  We already have a few barbecues on the calendar.  Plus we’re spending the Fourth of July in Durango, Colorado, will be vacationing in New York City, doing a quick beach trip, and spending a weekend with friends at a cottage on a river in Pennsylvania.  It’s going to be so much fun!  I can hardly wait.

I love how easily this high-end summer dress pairs with low end items like these sandals from Target and panama hat from Express.  The combo creates a casual, laid-back high end, low end outfit.


You’ll hear me say it a million times, that the midi trend is perfect for moms.  I have to force myself to choose dresses and skirts with other lengths or else my closet would only have midis in it.  It’s so practical to have a dress that I know completely covers my bum when I bend over to pick up the little one, and doesn’t drag through the dirt when we are at the park.  Whoever brought the midi summer dress trend back, thank you!
