Flowing Summer Dress with a Flower Print


Trying to find titles for outfit posts is pretty hard, so today I am going for a description of my dress. It was actually my mom's dress, but she does not fit it anymore and I do, so now it is my dress. A couple of weeks ago there was this wonderful heatwave after returning from the maddening heat in New York City, and it gave me the opportunity to pull this dress out of my closet again. 

No complaints either way. I like a great deal of sunshine and heat as long as I am not expected to be productive during that time. Luckily for me I still had some free time left (after the exams) so it was pretty amazing. Some friends and I decided to meet up for lunch and try out this place in the city center called Pho 61! We tried a bunch of different things and it was pretty delicious! Definitely a restaurant I would like to go back to. 

Dress: Mango - Bag: Michael Kors - Shoes: Converse - Sunglasses: Ray Ban - Choker: Claire's - Lipstick: MDMflow.
For those of you who haven't read my last couple of posts.... I have green hair now! By the time these pictures were taken the colors were pretty faded and it had gone from dark green with a hint of teal to yellow-green. I personally also enjoy the faded yellow. It looks kind of messy and casual. Definitely something that fits my style. I actually combined it with my brand new Michael Kors bag which I bought at Macy's in Boston with a major discount (almost 50%). Yay! I love the salmon-pink color, the Selma bag is definitely my favorite model, and this one's smaller than the other one I have.. so it is much easier for on-the-go. It's also a matte version, which I prefer! Now it is less likely to get scratches... I hope!


There are so many other dresses and skirts I actually want to take photos of, but time has flown by and summer is officially over. I am kind of sad about that, but I am also looking forward to sweaters and fall makeup! Oh, and hot chocolate. Yummm. Seeing as it was a wonderful day spent with friends, here is a cute group photo of us together. We were all -accidentally- rocking the 90s vibe with our chokers, and metallic/brown makeup. From left to right: Naomi, Sabina, Annebeth, and me (doh). Are you looking forward to fall too? I kind of am, because the weather is in this transition phase right now, and it's either too cold or too hot. Kind of annoying. Then again, I can always complain about the weather.

  3. You look lovely in that dress! I had one similar in the 90's when I was in my teens (saying that did not make me any younger, mmmh). I loved it to pieces, I'm happy that trend is back, but my legs are not as pretty as they use to be, so I'm glad I can pair this dresses with leggings, lol!!

  4. I am looking forward to fall ever since I returned from our France holiday. I love the change of seasons more than specific seasons, so bring on tea, sweaters and falling leaves.
