Last outfits of summer always make you feel a loss

Summer clothes don’t get much wear in Interior Alaska

Here in Interior Alaska, summers are short. Moreover, August is the rainiest month of the year, i.e. our rain season so to speak. Rainy days cut the time for wearing summer dresses even shorter. Nevertheless, I had bought several new summer dresses at the beginning of summer. Since this year had a particularly rainy summer, you have only seen them a few of them because there were so few opportunities sunshine and temperature wise to wear them. You saw already the paisley print dress and floral leave print dress. In this post, I will show the other two summer dresses I bought for summer.

Polka dots are a classic

I always loved polka dots and as long as I can remember I always owned at least one item with polka dots. When I saw this burgundy polka dot dress I couldn’t resist. I had to have it because of its unique color combination and size of the dots. Most polka dot pieces I had owned in the past as well as those I already owned are the classic navy and white or black and white combination and have the classic pin top size.

Another summer dress, I had not yet the chance to show has the same cut, but a classic white dots on navy background. Do you see a pattern here? I tend to buy items of which I know they work for me. In this case, the cut and the pattern as well as the color combination. That’s how fashion turns into personal style. LOL. 😉

A thing I like about this cut is how nice the skirt twirls. Thus, I can get more wear out of the dress as it I can wear it for dancing year round.

Tiina at Elegance Revisited became Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav, as you clicked her white-black and red outfit post the most. A striped dress is a wardrobe must-have every woman should own. Wearing a blanket scarf is a great way to extend the wear of summer dresses into fall. Great inspiration.

ChicChi  at The style Tune became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. I have a knack for tulle skirts. I love how she gave her feminine skirt an edge by styling it with a menswear inspired shirt and leopard print pumps. Styling the shirt as a wrap top really caught my attention. Well done, young lady.
