Growing up in Seattle, summer was a welcomed change from our dreary winters. I couldn’t wait to play outside and get some sunshine! However, for the last 5 years I have lived somewhere where I dread summer. Las Vegas was miserably hot from about June – September and unless you drive up to Mt. Charleston, take a boat out on Lake Mead or have a pool in your backyard there is no escaping it. I think the hottest we ever experienced was 117 and I never want to feel that again. Destin is a little more bearable, but humidity is no joke! Even though we won’t get Vegas temps, you immediately feel sticky and sweaty when you go outside most days. Thankfully we get a nice breeze from the water and we can jump into the gulf to cool down (for now, until the water warms up). Plus I’m not looking forward to tourist season. I made the mistake of going to the grocery store on a weekend, which I will NEVER do again. There were families stopping in the middle of the aisles deciding what to cook for dinner that week and it almost looked like people were preparing for a hurricane by the looks of the empty shelves. Even though there are some annoyances, I can’t complain overall. I mean we live by these GORGEOUS beaches in a town where all the locals are super friendly. I guess it’s an okay tradeoff ;)
Now that it’s getting hot, hot, hot I’ve been living in sundresses. Normally I’m all about neutrals, but for some reason this floral dress caught my eye. The colors are beautiful and the pattern is so fun for summer. Plus how cute is the flounce hem?! You know I’m all about feminine details. It was perfect for our trip to Savannah! I wore it to a wedding rehearsal dinner, another dinner out and an afternoon exploring the city. It’s flowy and lightweight, which was perfect for the hot, humid weather we had. Best of all? It’s under $50 and also comes in pink, blue and black. To accessorize, I paired it with some of my favorite Kendra Scott pieces (these rose gold earrings and this tassel bracelet) and a circle rattan bag. Basically I’ll be living in dresses like this one for the next few months!
