Little Red Dress

Another outfit post so soon?! I know, I'm surprised too. The weather has just been so nice lately that we can't help but spend time outside (so I try to look cute while doing so.)

For the past couple months I've been doing that whole closet clean-out trick where you turn all of your hangers backwards and every time you wear/wash something, you re-hang it forwards. After 6 months anything that hasn't been worn should be sold or donated. I'm almost at the point where I'm ready to part with everything that's still hanging backwards and I'm excited to replenish those items with a few new dresses for summer.

I recently made space for this little red dress sent to me by ZNU, an online clothing shop with adorable dresses out the wazoo (I love this denim shirt dress!) This red dress is going to be perfect for hot summer nights - it's super lightweight and comfortable. It's the kind of dress you can just throw on and be out the door.

I love the look of the dual straps and the chiffon adds a bit of fanciness that would be perfect for a summer date night or party! I paired my dress with this beautiful teal and gold embroidered purse (last seen here), my new heeled sandals, and this cute gold bar necklace that came in my ChicSeams package from Rosewood Boutique! I threw my hair into a quick fishtail braid, which is becoming my go-to hair style until I make an appointment to chop off this mane (it's happening soon, you guys.)

I hope you're all enjoying this lovely weather and taking advantage of it as much as I am! (Read: lots of happy hours - cheers!)

    1. Thanks, Julie! I feel pretty clueless with my hair too - that's why I can't wait to cut it off!
