Easy summer dressing | Teal + yellow

Easy summer dressing for me is really simple:  dresses. Dresses are SO easy. You put one on, add some sandals, and you are good to go. If the dress is in a print, then bonus points — because it’s like you’re already wearing an accessory!

For this easy fit-and-flare dress — in one of my favorite colors, teal — I added a lightweight scarf to add some pattern and more color. (Tip:  A lightweight scarf helps indoors in the summer, if the a/c is chilly.)

I wore this outfit on a lunch out with librarian colleagues. I wanted to be fuss-free but also put together and casually professional. Check, check, and check! 🙂

My yellow + gold sparkles pedicure (see details here in this post) also tied in with my yellow colorblock tote. My color-coordinating skills know no bounds. 😉 And I love these wedge sandals so much. The platform isn’t too high, the cork wedge is super-lightweight, and the style has a slight ’70s retro vibe I love.

I’ve had this teal dress for ages, and it still works for me year-round and with so many different colors! This combo is quite similar to a teal + orange outfit I wore a couple of summers ago. I keep going back to that no-fail summer formula of a dress + sandals + lightweight scarf. Remixing = real life, y’all! 🙂

    That dress fits you like a dream, and the color is beautiful! I really should wear more dresses in the summer, but to me jeans and T-shirts are always easier 😛

    Love the color on you. And the dress does fit you like a dream! Good choices. I’ve only recently gotten on the “summer scarf” train and a little less now that I wear scrubs to work every day, but I appreciate the touch they add nonetheless.
