It’s the end of another week and the year is just whizzing by! I’m trying my best to play catch up with the purchases I made for fashion posts in the Summer. Of course you are aware that it is Summer all the time where I am but the seasons everywhere else (except Aus/NZ) dictate the style of outfits.
My go-to places for online shopping needs some variety so I decided to shop online at Rue 107 this time round. It’s a pretty rad clothing store based in New York and I love the vibrance of their outfits..it exudes fun!
The outfit I am wearing in this post is my second purchase from the store and the first outfit will be worn in the coming week. They’re both adorable!
beaded yellow necklace – thrifted
light blue ballet flats – thrifted
Let me start off by saying,
This dress does Not disappoint when you see it in person. It is the exact shade you see on the website and it is so perfect for summer. It evokes sunny blue skies, a glistening swimming pool and oranges for a Mai Tai!
The fabric is Polyester and Spandex, which makes it comfortably stretchy and sweat-stain proof. You could get the top version of this print and wear it to the pool, I am not kidding! Swimming in it is an entirely different matter of course..there are proper swimming suits and then there are “gorgeous look at me by the pool and let’s get a tan swimsuits”.
There is a pink version of this and it is just as cute but my eyes were set on this. The colour combo is perfection. It just makes you…Happy 🙂
The flutter sleeves are a big hit with me ever since I wore my first flutter sleeve dress from boohoo.com at the end of 2014, that beauty was in maroon. The arms are not constricted in any way. It is a very fitted dress however so size up if you’d prefer..it is going to cling to your every curve.
What I see in these pictures is a happy, sassy lass who loves her outfit and enjoys being photographed in it. And that is the same mindset I will bring forth when I take this dress for a spin around town!
I kept the makeup for this look with a coral, yellow hue in mind to complement the dress. I’ve been trying to figure out if my skin is a warm or cool tone and the jury is still out there! Darker lipsticks, blue eyeshadow look just as nice on me as coral, pink shades. Maybe I’m both? Is that possible? *shrugs*
I am not quite ready to let go of Summer fashion season yet so you will be seeing more outfits like this one in August!
I hope you have a good start to your week and for those of you who perhaps need a chin up, here is something I say to myself oh so often:
Those Who Matter Don’t Mind and,
Those Who Mind Don’t Matter
Sending you all my love
