Plum Crazy

My natural instinct with a solid color dress is to layer it up, but seeing as the average day around these parts is hovering in the vicinity of 110ยบ, layers were not in my cards. Instead I reached for my straw hat, a loud floral belt, and partially clear shoes that found their way to my closet not too long ago. I recently thrifted these fun shoes that remind me of a lounge singer or a character on Dallas- and I mean that in the best way :)

dress: borrowed from Ashley // shoes, belt, hat: thrifted

This cotton dress really is the best kind of sundress- lightweight and breathable, and the criss-cross back straps and fabric texture add subtle details. I really love how Ashley jazzed it up with fun patterns and green shoes- you can see from her styling that this dress really is perfect for summer and layering in cooler temps!

How do you keep your outfits interesting when it's too hot for layers?


  1. You both look amazing! I love the fun belt and wearing your hair up off your shoulders is beautiful! Purple has never been more cool!

  2. I love your addition of the colorful belt, and this shade of purple is wonderful on you! Just lovely.

  4. That cotton dress is perfect for summer and I think you accessorized it perfectly for hot weather. That belt adds a cool punch of pattern and those thrifted shoes are the coolest ever.
