How About an Outfit Post?

It is June - how it is June already, I can barely comprehend.  But with the Memorial Day weekend came a ridiculously hot heat wave and Virginia summer has officially started.  Hot, humid, face melting, fry-an-egg on my head, it. is. so. H.O.T.

So with the unbearability of the heat comes a simple dress with simple accessories.  Honestly, if it was socially acceptable to wear a bathing suit and cover-up to the office, I might have gone with that.  But this outfit is the result of flinging open the closet and seeing a purple dress and peachy-pinky color belt and saying to yourself, "hey, those two things might work together".  A couple of fuschia sandals and flower pin later, and thankfully an outfit worthy to walk out of the house in was born.

How is the weather where you are? Is it sweltering? Stormy? Or are you still experiencing spring?

**For the record, I guess I would rather it be hellaciously hot than bitterly cold.  But what would I do without being able to complain about the weather?? :)**

Dress, Belt - J.Crew
Flower Pin - Old Navy
Necklace - Charlotte Russe

The world will be oh so dull if we all didn't have the weather to complain about! haha It's supposed to be stormy again tonight then super hot this Friday. Hmm.

I like the color of your dress and you're totally right! Simplicity is the only way to combat extreme heat!

I would just like to say that you can rock a flower!  I love how you implement into so many of your outfits!

I always prefer being cold to hot because I love layering (and scarves!), but in general summer and winter really just need to not be such drama queens. I don't like drastic temps! But anyway, I love your outfit! Everything looks so cute together and I love the color of that dress!

Lauren said...

lololol, thanks Katie! I think it's safe to say that I'm a little bit
obsessed with them :)

Lauren said...

Casee - you're right, colder temps are waay better for layering, and
seriously why do winter and summer have to be such drama queens??

I will take the heat over the cold any day!  These colors really work well together and that belt is crazy cute.

Lauren said...

You are too sweet! And yes, please steal the belt/flower pin idea - it's
one of my favs!!

Thank you yes, I'll take an outfit post, and in all pinky colors, too!  You look Divine, even in the sweltering heat!  Ya know I had a dream last night it was June 20.  Or a nightmare, I should say.  It was not fun.
