In years past, especially during my college years, summer was always spent counting down the days until I returned to my college campus and be reunited with all my friends. Now, I am wishing for the summer to slow down, so I can savor the warmer weather and longer days of daylight a little bit more. This summer was my first summer in the “working world” and I soon discovered how quickly the summer days just pass by. I would spend my weekdays eagerly awaiting for the weekends and when the weekend did arrive it went in a flash. Just like I am not ready to say goodbye to the warm season just yet, my wardrobe is not ready either, which is why in today’s style post I am holding onto summer a little bit longer, one summery dress at a time.
Although, fall fashion is my favorite, I will miss the simplicity of summer fashion by just throwing on a dress and walking out the door. This dress I am wearing today is one of those dresses and has been on repeat due to its effortless look. I found this beautiful, off the shoulder dress at Marshalls. I love the subtle ruffles and the deep colors like burgundy, orange, and gold, which to me makes this dress a good transition piece for the upcoming fall season.
With the extremely hot and humid summer New York City has been having, there is no need for a jacket, so all I have to worry about is accessorizing. We all know I love a good choker and especially with the low neck of this dress, I could not wait to wear my new leather wrapped choker necklace from the Etsy shop, Wraps by Renzel. All of Gayle’s (the shop owner and designer) are super unique and trendy, making her collection of bracelets and necklaces the perfect addition to any outfit. I love how this black leather choker wrap with the gold details can be worn in so many ways. Today, I decided to wrap it around my neck three times for that layered look.
As mentioned in my last post, I hardly wear bracelets, and I have vowed to change that by wearing the matching bracelet to my choker also from the Etsy shop Wraps by Renzel. Similar to the choker, the bracelet can be wrapped around your wrist in different ways.
Since, my dress features dark colors and my jewelry is black, I decided to lighten the color palette up slightly, with these strappy heeled sandals also from Marshalls. Funny story about these shoes… on the day of my sister’s bridal shower, my original sandals broke so I had to quickly run to Marshalls to find another pair of shoes that matched with my outfit and I found these and ever since that I can’t stop wearing them.
I still can’t believe summer came and went this quickly. I hope everyone is enjoying the final days of summer. Let me know in the comments below what has been the highlight of your summer. Talk soon!
