I’ve Got the Blues

levis denim jacket and blue sundress for summerIf there’s one thing I can never have enough of – it’s cute, summer dresses. Summer dresses are probably one of my favorite pieces to wear, because it’s so easy to either dress them up or down, and they can be styled in many different ways! While I love dressing up, I’ve been all about casual looks lately. In fact, while everyone has hopped on the Stan Smith’s train (I’m not there yet, and probably won’t be), I would LOVE to style this outfit with a pair of classic, white chucks! I think it would be perfect to wear to Cubs games (as I’ll be moving to Chicago in a few weeks!)

I stumbled upon this pretty, dress from Target last weekend (so cute, right? It comes in a gorgeous olive color, too) and I knew it would be the perfect piece for my future Chicago summer nights! Blue is my absolute favorite color, but I also love the embroidery detail and the gauzy fabric. It’s been so hot here lately, so having a lightweight summer dress that doesn’t make me overheat is a must!

When the nights get chilly, just throw on a jean jacket! Believe it or not, I’ve had this jean jacket since junior year of high school – and I just graduated from college! That speaks to the power of good-quality brands, like Levi’s!

Have you guys purchased any cute, summer dresses lately? Please send them my way!

P.S. – I just joined snapchat, and my username is ‘oliverstwistt’… send me yours!
