Dress For Spring But Prepare For Summer

May 17, 2017

I just now adopted this saying. Why? Well, I could get into global warming and my conspiracy theorist mind, but we will just talk about clothes today. Warm weather style is actually not my favorite, and that is probably just because I hate the sweltering summer months and I love layering. Fall is my favorite and almost comes easier to shop and dress for. Today I’m going to go over a few points I think about when gearing up my wardrobe for the warmer months. I make sure I have the basics, which most will carry over from the previous season, ie: denim cut-offs, white jeans, white tank, striped tees. The rest I make a checklist of what I want to invest in that will also carry me until basically it gets cold again, which last year in Georgia was November, soooo that’s a long time. This year I knew I wanted some high waist skirts, on-trend dresses, a classic dress or two (like the one below) that I will truly wear again, the wedge of the moment, and possibly a summer bag. I made sure that I had lightweight jeans for chilly nights, my beloved white pair, and a go-to summer sweater. Other than that, I know it’s going to be miserable outside eventually so I will want the cute stuff for events, and everything just comfortable to live in. This is usually the tissue tees that I love from Madewell or J.Crew and a white denim jean. During the Spring, all of this can be worn with denim jackets, summer sweaters, even cute closed toe shoes. But it’s not going to last long, so everything cute, I make sure it will be practical (AND comfortable) to wear until the end of summer.

This patterned dress¬†from South Moon Under (seriously my new favorite store) is the perfect classic dress for anything from date nights to baby showers. It has some awesome detail surprises though which makes it stand out from just any old dress. That back cut-out is unexpected but so cool. The pattern is perfect because it’s one that isn’t too loud or ‘trendy’ so although the dress might not be forgotten, it can be one that you wear in a few different pictures ;).
