How to Style a Winter Dress for Summer | Outfits

Dear Lydia,

You might remember this lace dress from December and earlier during the cold, cold spring. I decided that it’s too nice to keep in the closet until fall, so I did a summer restyle with sandals and minimal accessories. Almost did a gold belt, but switched to silver at the last second. Not my most casual summer weekend look ever, but I like it.

Also, it’s going to be August soon? It’s so weird, but I’ve kind of been missing my fall clothes. I think the intense heatwave made me tired of a lot of my summer things… or maybe just tired in general.

    Pretty! I have a lacy pink top that I’d like to wear but the sleeves are a bit too itchy for hot weather. I’m glad you made this work, the color suits you amazingly.
