Summer Please Don’t Leave Us

Summer Please Don't Leave Us

Dress by All Saints

So Labor Day has come and gone which means if you’re a traditional fashionista you won’t wear white until the first day of Spring, and our days of summer dresses are numbered. My favorite part of summer is not only longer nights and flowy chiffon dresses, but the summer breeze through a pretty dress. Nothing is more elegant than a piece of fabric flowing in the wind. I don’t care if it’s high end couture or a Forever 21 frock, the result is the same.

And what better way to prepare for Fall then by dusting off some ankle booties! My Sergio Rossi cut out ankle bootie with a stiletto heel are the perfect transition from Summer to Fall. The cut outs are still a reminder that we still have a little bit more warm weather to enjoy before the cold comes and the boots with the fur become a must.

One of the many many things I love about fall is the fact that obvi its a new season, and with a new season comes NEW TRENDS! And one of my new favorite trends this season is peplum dresses! If you’re a self proclaimed girly girl, such as myself I highly recommend this dress that is perfect for the fall and upcoming winter season. 

The peplum dress is a dress that looks like a modern twist to a princess ball gown. In a nutshell the peplum is your basic sheath dress with a splash of ruffle to accentuate your hips aka your glamourous hour glass figure. Fellow fashionistas have described these statement makers as “pure magic.” A pretty, magic, dress? Yes please!

One of the best things about the peplum dress is that they come in all colors, styles and cost ranges. I’ve seen them carried everywhere from Forever 21 and Papaya to higher end department stores and celebrity adored labels such as Alice and Olivia. Fashion bloggers and fashionistas rave that this dress is perfect for the girl on the go. Just change up your accessories and into some flats and ta da! A perfect day in to night dress!

After hearing so many great things and seeing for myself how the dress compliments so many silhouettes I can’t wait till my budget permits me to get one to add to my fall wardrobe!
