Pastel it On

It's still really, really hot here, and I'm getting a little bit tired of all my summer clothes, so I did my best to autumnal-fy (of course it's a word) some of my summer staples, like this lilac dress. I don't usually like blacks with pastels together, but I found it an effective way to make this dress a little less sweet.

P.S. This is how I wore this dress last time. And no, summer is still not over.

That dress is SO cute! I am a bit anxious for slightly cooler weather too, but I know I'll be complaining about it being TOO cold soon.

I really like that dress - the cut, color and the little pattern in it are all really nice. I think it looks great with the black belt, as well.

It's feeling cool and a bit drizzly here in Portland, and I'm feeling a bit more at home (I don't deal well with hot temperatures), so I hope things cool off for you as well, and let you delve further into the fall portion of your wardrobe (my favorite part of my own wardrobe) :)

Cheers!

I also forgot to mention, I got a chuckle out of the post title :) Can't resist a good cheesy pun :)

I'm jealous that you still have warm weather.

That dress is cute, and I like the color on you.

I like the contrast. I want winter to come sooner.

Tis still a bit muggy here in London...but the rain has started (not a good combination).

Ooh, your dress is stunning! I like it a lot. At first I wasn't sure about the belt, but now I see your point. I think it works!

Ya know I didn't realize it until you mentioned it, but I rarely wear pastels with black either, and I really love the way this looks. Thanks for the unconscious tip!

So cute! I passed Delia's yesterday wondering if they had anything worth wearing! Answer: yes!

Beth Ellen said...

I really love that you paired this dress with a black belt! I think you look adorable.

LOVE the eyelet dress. And I feel your pain about the heat...in Ft.Lauderdale we won't even have a breeze until end of November

You look great in lilac, even if your expression on the first photo looks like you are so over the summer weather :)

Sal said...

Love you in lavender. And don't worry - it'll cool off soon and you'll be longing for the heat!

Future Lint said...

OOh, I like it with the thick black belt! I'd trade your weather for ours, it has been raining non-stop for two weeks here (hello flooding!)

Lauren said...

So simple, but so cute! And seriously, it is blazing hot here in VA as well...come on, will boot weather please arrive? Just be cool enough to wear some fun boots, that's all I ask :)

ha! it's 15 ºC (59 ºF?) in my bedroom right now and I believe just a bit colder outside. Just let me say that I am wearing three sets of pajamas right now and I just don't believe warm exists.
You do look lovely, but I just can't wait till you start wearing autumn clothes. :D

This dress is so beautiful Tania! I also want fall to get there, so I can see your amazing fall outfits <3 Forgive me for being away these days. I'm updating myself today, hehe. Xoxo!

"Autumnify" sounds WAY cooler than "fallify". I love it. And I think lavender looks great with black!
