Why are summer clothes so exciting?
It doesn’t matter whether it is the new dress you bought for summer or whether it is your favorite dress from last summer. In spring, we gals are all eager to wear our summer items to up our mood thru the last chilly days. In fall, we are all in denial and want to keep wearing our summer favorites. The summer clothes somehow let us feel the freedom. Maybe it’s because the long school free time in summer when we were kids or just because we just like the long days and the less restrictive dress code.
Wear it now
I love the high-low hem of this dress’ design and the nice cleavage. However, in Alaska in rarely gets warm enough to wear this dress.
Here some inspiration how to wear the dress in summer.

Wear it later
An easy way to head start wearing summer clothes in spring is to pair them with items from our winter wardrobe. To extend their wear into fall, pair them with items from the cold season again.
Here I wore my summer sheath with a sweater that picks up a color of the print. I added matching shoes. The result looks like a pencil skirt with a sweater. To downplay the contrast between the summer and winter pieces I repeated the white of the dress by adding a white belt and scarf. The result: a fresh colorful spring or fall outfit for work. To not freeze to hypothermia I wore a half-slip underneath the sheath. Nobody will know that little secret. I added my transition season coat – a thrift-store find – for the commute. You can find an ultimate guide how to transition summer pieces into fall in the post at the link.
