July is one of my favorite summer months. We kick off the month with the 4th of July (one of my fave holidays) and get to enjoy a surplus of sunshine throughout the entire month. However, what’s crazy is that July marks the midpoint of summer, which means we start soaking up every last precious moment of the season before transitioning into fall.
Around this time of year, stores start marking down all of their summer styles and slowing start sprucing up their displays with touches of fall. While most of us don’t want to dive right into fall, I’ve found that one of the best pieces to ease the seasonal transition is the perfect midi dress.
Midi dresses are often times overlooked as they’re that awkward middle man between a maxi and a mini. But quite honestly, I love midi dresses! Maxi dresses often times give off that “formal” vibe and seem too dressy for the everyday and sometimes, a mini isn’t quite appropriate for everyday wear or a workwear look, making midi’s the happy medium.
I have received so many compliments on this midi dress from Desert Tide Boutique and have loved styling it in a variety of ways throughout the summer. The fact that this dress is in a mustard hue, means that it can easily be carried into fall as mustard is one of those colors that is very versatile.
In today’s look, I’ve styled this dress with my favorite go-to wedges from Shoetopia and mixed in a woven straw bag. Playing with accessories and textures (such as straw + rattan) that are seasonal to summer gives this dress all the summer feels!
However, as I mentioned, fall is going to sneak up on us in just a few short months and luckily, this is the perfect dress to have me styled for both seasons. With an easy swap of shoes and accessories, I can bring this dress right on in to fall.
For a fall inspired look, I am excited to style this dress with a denim jacket, slip on cognac mules, a statement earring and a floppy hat to have a look that is on-trend for the season.
I’m often asked how I have appear to have an endless amount of clothes and the truth is, I don’t! I simply focus on buying pieces, such as this dress, that are very veratile and can be styled in a variety of ways. Choosing pieces with multiple options for styling not only makes your wardrobe seem that much bigger, but also saves you money too!
