Swishin’ into Summer

I don’t know what’s going on with our weather in North Carolina, but it was 93 today where we live!!! The heat is oppressive and it’s not even Memorial Day yet! I feel like I should be taking Kennedy to the pool to cool off – but the pools aren’t even open yet. I will say, we have been eating lots of smoothies and popsicles! This Free People smocked dress was the perfect thing to wear on a sweltering day. The material is nice and light and it’s super fun to swish (you know, swish the skirt around!). I wore it with some espadrille platform wedges but I think it would also be cute with tennis shoes or flat sandals.

How is the weather where you guys are? Hopefully you’re getting a break from the intense heat!

    Lovely outfit to beat the summer heat. 93 is hot. I am looking forward to some summer weather especially after the cold winter and spring of the north east. Good News I am moving to Virginia Beach with my boyfriend. My job promoted me and now I can relocate there. Happy to be leaving Long Island NY. At least I can stay at my parents house there when I have job assignments in NYC. How is summer in Virginia Beach. I hear its hot and muggy for the most part.

  5. This dress is really cute! I love that you paired it with beige accessories! I like more sandals with heels instead of wedges



  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE these dresses! Totally into these and the babydoll dresses, they’re so fresh and comfortable for the unbearable summer heat.
