(Where are the) Dog Days of Summer

Never in late July/early August did I think a cardigan would be suitable for midday in the Northeast. Normally it's hot, muggy, and the last thing I want to be wearing is a sweater. But this summer has been very cool and rainy. I hate hot weather, so I can't complain. It's just weird.








Outfit: Dress, Room 334; shoes, Marshalls; circle scarf, flea market; cardigan, H&M.

Add a pair of tights to this outfit and this is my go-to fall outfit template: Dress, cardi, booties, scarf, tights. Also, have to thank Elana from Room 334 for selling me this lovely dress for nothing! (She wore it here.) I couldn't resist getting it. I don't really have anything like it in my closet, so it was easily justified. The details seen in the photos really don't do it justice. The fabric has a subtle shimmer to it, too.

In case you're wondering, Kim and I found this wonderful scene just a few blocks from our office, on our lunch break no less. I love lame graffiti... Especially that big, rabid dog head. Hehe.

Depending on where you live, of course, have you altered what you normally wear for summer?


  1. Our summer has been super hot this yeah so I'm glad it's starting to cool so I can get back to my cardi's in comfort. I tend not to alter my wardrobe for the seasons, I just add more layers in the winter :)

  2. Holy crap, this looks perfect on you! I'm so happy it's yours now because I am in love with how you styled it. Those shoes are amazing.

    And I am so with you. The worst part of summer is always the lack of cardigans. It always needs to be about 10 or 20 degrees cooler in my opinion. Love this location too!


  3. Oh goodness this summer has been so mild, again not that Im complaining (but global warming anyone). I find myself able to wear tights with my dresses even and get away with it. Also I love that lace dress!!!!

  4. Ooh that's Elana's dress?! It's perfect on you! This location is soooo pretty as well. And this summer has been cooler for us too - so a cardigan it is!

  5. That dress is lovely on you! You wear it so well that I certainly hope to see it again come fall. And you are right.... the weather has been a little off this season.


  6. That dress is beautiful <3 Amazing details! The plum cardigan pairs beautifully with it, too!
