From the Owldrobe and FOTD: Ode To Summer

That was a pretty short summer. The heat was definitely no fun, but not much sunlight meant not enough time for those fun summer activities. Plus, summer also spelled near-lazy dressing inasmuch as it spelled near-zero makeup. I made an effort in the makeup department on this particular day, though, because I was meeting a friend.

White lace dress: thrifted
Silver quilted flats: Anthology Shoes

I took to dresses a lot this summer, because it was just too hot for jeans. (It was too hot to do anything.) This dress... is hard to belt. Not sure what kind of belt will go with it, too. It's very pretty but it's a tent dress by nature, and the lace at the bottom belies its true length. I still really like it, though! My mom & I had a favorite seller who would sell her items on a buy-one-take-one basis and for a time we regularly visited her stall on payday weekends. This was one of the many beautiful things I was able to get from her. I haven't paid a visit this year, but that's probably a good thing because I need to downsize my closet.

As for the shoes... barring those times when I had nailpolish and therefore license to wear open-toed shoes, I lived in these all summer. They had enough room for movement but they didn't fly off my feet like most flats do, and they're sensible-looking but not too mommy-like. Aaand I just noticed the quilted pattern of the shoes mirrors the pattern on the dress. Awesome.

And my FOTD then:

I like my cool weather and I look forward to layering again, but yeah, I miss the sun sometimes.

  3. Summer is sooo fast and its back to reality again. I love how this dress can also be layered up with a nice coverup or a vest or can be worn under leggings! The dress suits you very well and it works well with your skin tone! :) I love the FOTD! :)
