Yesterday was the first official day of Autumn and it hit me that from now on it will be too cold to run around in summer dresses in London. With summer ending I thought it would be appropriate to post my final summer dress outfit. I miss summer already. Every day that passes by the air gets crisper and the days get cooler. Don’t get me wrong I love autumn. It’s my favorite time of the year. I can’t wait to wear boots and scarves, but at the minute I’m quite nostalgic about the warm summer days.
Lucky for us, London had quite a nice summer towards the end of August into September. It was my first summer here in London and if I were to use one word to describe it I would say it was humid! I loved that London was so lively and busy in the summer months but the tube was outrageously hot! After my first summer in London I finally understand why everyone says London is amazing in the summer. I loved how busy my schedule was during the summer and I love that there was some sort of event every weekend.
Having so many events during the summer meant I had to have new summer dresses for every event. I also did my fair share of traveling over the summer and I had to make sure I had new dresses for dinners and events. This dress from Banana Republic was the perfect balance of a summery light dress and fancy enough for a dinner outing. I also love that this dress has polka dots all over it. Unlike stripes, polka dots are quite flattering on any body type. Also this dress cinches at the waist giving my body the illusion of a smaller waist. I also highly suggest the petite section at Banana Republic for all my shorties out there. The dress is perfectly tailored towards my body type, so if you have a short frame and curves I would recommend adding this dress to your wardrobe.
Dress – Banana Republic
Purse – Rebecca Minkoff
I hope this post inspired you to go out and try to shop for one last summer dress to add to your wardrobe before we wear scarves and boots for the next 6 months.
