The Epitome Of Summer

{Dress - Zara; Belt - Target; Bracelets - F21; Sandals - Bakers}
** Get the look, each piece under $48: Dress, Sandals, Bangle, Flower

I have been frantically trying to wear every single piece of summer clothing that I own before the summer is actually over.  I have not been taking advantage of all the mini skirts and sundresses I have, so I dug deep and found this dress that screams summer.  I think a yellow eyelet dress with ruffles is the epitome of summer wear and calls for simple accessories - gold sandals and bangles - and low-maintenance, romantic hair. 
On a completely different note, is it just me or did this week fly by?  I cannot believe it is already the weekend; I am not complaining, that's for sure!  But it's just amazing that it is Friday again!  This weekend should be a little more relaxing than last weekend for us, but I am hoping we can fill it with lots of spontaneous summer fun!
I hope you all have a wonderful, summery weekend!

  1. I've been trying to do the same thing as well...utilize my summer wardrobe as much as possible... Has been working out as it has been 90+ in Chicago! Love the sunny yellow dress and the bangles are pretty! I feel like we should meet up and have lunch somewhere alfresco and people watch! :D

  26. Summer here in Germany started and ended in May, I´m already wearing cashmere and booties and scarfs, imagine that ;)! But it´s a great idea to wear every single piece of summer clothing before summer is over, I should try this too.
