Frugal Fashion: Flowy & Floral

July 16, 2012

My outfit from August Wrinkle

Necklace- Forever 21  /  Dress & Purse-  August Wrinkle /  Shoes- Taupe Wedges from Target

It has been hot & humid here in Chicago!  Temperatures around 90+ and humidity around 45%.  On days that are sticky & icky it’s time to keep it light, flowy & floral!  I absolutely loved this dress from August Wrinkle–  when you walk, it trails behind you and feels so regal, without the weight of a traditional day dress.  This dress would be perfect for cooler days with a cardigan or shawl.

I also seem to have developed an obsession for taupe and tan.  I love these taupe suede wedges I picked up from Target last fall- they are super comfy and add just a bit of height.  Every girl should have a pair of suede wedges- they’re casual and comfy and won’t kill your feet if you have a day of walking.  They’re one of my most versatile wedges!

Taupe Purse & Suede Wedges

I still am learning how to use my Canon Rebel T2i and have a lot to learn about lighting & positioning, but it’s a fun challenge.  I’m relocating in about a month, so expect a change in venue.  I’ll be trading in the brick & concrete for some new backdrops- maybe some adobe, stone & orange trees?  Hmmm, we’ll see!

I turn 26 on July 22nd, thank you all for the kind birthday wishes and everyone who has donated to charity:water!

    I love the draping effect in the back of the dress, I haven’t seen too much of that on summer dresses, must be a new thing. Cute!

    Neutrals are usually underused for summer but they can be great! I love this look, put together but still casual.

  4. I love the whole outfit! I am jealous that you can go strapless though. 🙂 My…ummm…boobage would not tolerate that at all, lol. I would look grandmotherly (hanging low). You look awesome!
