Foolproof Summer Outfit Formula

July 1, 2015

You might notice a theme in my next several posts. I have a foolproof summer outfit formula: summer dress + fun sandals + good jewelry = chic and easy summer outfit. Today’s specifics are this fun Chicwish dress (similar, similar, love this), lace-up sandals (similar), and this cool art deco necklace from Happiness Boutique. This is my first time to own anything from Chicwish, and I am impressed with the brand. The dress arrived pretty quickly for international shipping, fits well, and is good quality. My necklace from Happiness Boutique made the perfect pairing for the dress. I loved adding a silver one to my collection. It has a bit of a boho vibe, which is really fun for summer. So tell me, what’s your foolproof summer outfit formula? Are you a fan of dresses?chicwish detailschicwish dress, hapiness boutique necklace chicwish dress, sandals, art deco necklace chicwish dressDress c/o Chicwish (similar, similar, love this) // Sandals: Forever21 (similar) // Necklace c/o Happiness Boutique // Sunglasses: Forever21 (similar) // Ring & Bracelet: Given to me by my family

    Beyond cute! I love the boho vibe from the lace up sandals and vintage style necklace.

    This is totally my formula as well. In the summertime I just don’t want to spend time in my closet, I want to be outside! So a dress and sandals are the perfect solution!
