Summer Dressing

Sometimes in the summer it just just so hot, you just can't be bothered to do anything too fussy. After getting way too much sun my first day of "vacation", everyone just needed to be thankful that I got dressed at all!



My family has lived on the lake for over 15 years, but we've always spent summers there (since my mom was a little girl)! I love getting away from everything for a few days- no internet, unpredictable cell service- and just relaxing in the lake, on the boat, or from the screened-in front porch. It reminds me of a simpler time in my life, you know?

Striped Hi-Lo Dress- Cato's, not available online (similar, similar,similar)
Bronze Wedge Sandals-???? (similar, similar)

This dress is trendy in so many ways. Cool hi-lo hem? Check. Colorful stripes? Check. Light and airy and not rubbing against any of my painfully sunburned parts? Check! If you are lucky enough to have a Cato's nearby, they've got lots of awesome dresses in right now!


I'm home right now because I had to go to a training meeting last night, but as soon as I publish this post, I'm headed back up to that little piece of laid-back, summertime heaven, and scenes similar to these below will be waiting for me when I get there! Hope you are having a great Wednesday :)

LOVE this dress on you! The stripes, colors, hi-low.. all fabulous. You look so pretty! And I totally agree about being on the lake.. or any body of water. It's just so relaxing and so peaceful. It's nice to be able to get away from reality, even for a few days. We have a house on Cape Cod... and since the weather warmed, we've been going there almost every weekend, just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the work week. :)

Katie, who says you can't look fabulous while on vacation? You're proof that it's totally possible! I love everything about this dress--the color, stripes and trendy hemline. Wishing you a fun time on your summer break! :)

What a great hi-low dress -the stripes and colors are so summery, and the bronze sandals are the perfect match. :) The lake sounds amazing - enjoy your time there!

The dress is adorable. But I am sorry for your sunburn. This stuff is very soothing. And this sunscreen is the best. kind. ever. (I am so white I practically glow in the dark, and it held up through a 4-day music festival.)

This dress definitely hits all the summer trend essentials. I love the colors. They look great with your skin tone!

Ouchies. I got a bad sunburn a few weeks ago, and loose dresses and cotton tops were my favorite. Love those colors.

Sounds like wonderful place to visit! While your dress is casual its still cool and fantastic!
