One More Summer Dress: From Day to Date


August is here, and it seems like fall trends are popping up everywhere, but summer is still coming in HOT, and I cant even think about putting on a sweater without breaking a sweat.

I mean let’s be honest, those cooler temperatures rarely make an appearance until late September if we’re lucky, so hold out on buying those new pieces for your fall wardrobe a little longer (besides, when you can actually wear them, there will be even more pieces to choose from in the stores. . .patience is a virtue). Today I’m sharing one more summer dress you need to add to your closet. . .and how to style it 2 ways.

This black dress from H&M (also in white) has the prettiest eyelet lace + ruffle straps with an open back that I’m in love with. With a few adjustments to the details, you can easily wear this dress for a date night or casual day out.

DATE NIGHT: I went with a pair of slip on sandals with a little fringe detail + a bright yellow headband to add some color to the look. I’ve been kind of obsessed with headbands lately, and I’m linking a few other options below.

CASUAL DAY LOOK: Even with the lace details and open back, I think this dress transforms perfectly into a casual daytime look. Pair it with white sneakers (probably my favorite trend of 2018) and a baseball hat and you’re done!

Outfit details are linked below. Comment with which look is your favorite!
