A denim dress for summer is an easy answer for a laid back kind of day. Casual dresses and skirts play an even bigger role in my wardrobe as the temperatures and humidity increase. Pairing them with sandals, cute sneakers, or espadrille sneakers is my favorite way to wear them.
The azaleas in our backyard are in bloom, but I don’t think they are going to be around much longer. I thought that they were the perfect backdrop for this light wash denim dress. Not only is it a light wash but it is a lightweight denim so it won’t be too hot as the temps keeps rising. It is from Boden USA and is on major sale right now.
I just want to point out that the back of my dress has an elastic waist. When I got the dress, it was like a sack on me with my small waist. My amazing seamstress, Svetlana, always has the answer to my issue. This time her solution was to put the elastic back there and I am loving it. It is just cinched in enough to give definition, but not too tight for when we have those 90 degree days with high humidity.
To finish off the denim dress for summer, I paired it with a simple silver necklace and some very comfy striped espadrille sneakers.
This weekend is the Kentucky Derby. Do you have any big plans? No parties on our agenda this year, but in years past we have gone to some great ones. I always love wearing a beautiful hat. We are supposed to have rain in Atlanta. Hope that is not the case for Louisville. Happy weekend!
