With the unofficial kickoff to summer behind us Iâ€™m ready to embrace long days, cold cocktails, and patio season! I donâ€™t know about you but post Memorial Day, I flip the switch and am in summer mode in all aspects until Labor Day (and then some). I finally started pulling out my summer dresses this last week and was so excited for the first hotter day in a while to wear this little black dress.
Summer in the city can be tough when it really heats up, so having something flowy and breathable is necessary. I consider this the â€œgoes with everythingâ€Â dressÂ â€“ the kind that you can slip on and accessorize 100 different ways and wear over and over again. In the summer Iâ€™m all over the place â€“ whether itâ€™s going straight from work to happy hours, meeting friends for drinks, or strolling through the Seaport and then grabbing a bite with MG, my plans are always coming together at the spur of the moment. Itâ€™s so much fun, but also means that I need to sometimes dress for the day knowing it can take me into the night.
I fell in love with this simple black dress for summer and the crochet detail and tiny pom pom hem. After years and years of summer clothes, I know the value of a cute black dress that is easy to style. You can make this dress extra summery by pairing it with aÂ floppy hatÂ and sandals, or dress it up with a pair ofÂ heelsÂ and aÂ clutch.
One of my favorite post-work activities is to head down to the Seaport once weâ€™re both home and walk around until weâ€™re hungry and then sit down for dinner at one of our favorite spots. Walking along the water and seeing the Brooklyn Bridge at night is a luxury that we donâ€™t take for granted, and with gorgeous weather we try to take advantage as often as possible. I threw on myÂ denim jacketÂ when I got chilly and this became the perfect day to date night ensemble.
What summer plans do you have on your radar?
