It’s true that it has always been hard to dress during the summer. Ironically, it is also the season with the weirdest and/ or most unpractical trends. While I’m fine walking around in the tank top + shorts combo the entire summer, I feel I had to step up my game ever since I started my blog. You know me, I like to try new things when it comes to clothing and, as you can see, I tried a mini denim dress today!

Since denim can be thick, that type of dress may not be the right piece for you. It depends how you can handle the summer heat. I’ll have to admit that this year, I haven’t suffer that much from the heat, despite my generalized anxiety disorder. I’m actually surprised how well I’ve been doing this year, since hot weather can make me feel similar symptoms of a panic attack (Yes, not cool…).

To style this denim dress, I obviously wanted the least amount of accessories possible. The summer heat can be really tiring for someone like me, hence why I want to keep my outfits as practical as possible. I paired this dark denim dress with my basket bag. The natural colour of this bag goes with everything so I don’t think it clashes with the dress. Since I picked my basket bag as an accessory, I thought that brown espadrilles would well with the rest of the outfit.

What do you think about that type of dresses?

Ps: Sorry for the resting b*tch face, that’s the kind of face I do when I’m hungry.

    The denim dress may not be the best summer attire. It looks great
    But any denim in summer is heavy. Still waiting for your smile!

      For the smile, you might have to wait for when I’ll get my braces off, so probably another year haha! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi Aria

    There is one word that sums up your look in the denim dress ‘WOW!

    I am not of an age that could rock the style of your denim dress but it has inspired me to try to find a lightweight denim dress for summer 2017.

    I will also follow your lead and team the dress (when l find itโ˜บ) with tan espradilles which l love to wear in the summer.

    l have a confession to make and an apology to give๐Ÿ˜š.
    In a previous blog feedback l said l really did not like the black flat pointy sling back shoes you wore.
    Well l take it all back. My Goddaughter was looking for special shoes in which she could dance the night away at a party.

    As she works and has little free time l said l would source the shoes for her. What did last buy – the pointy black sling backs and they looked amazing with her party look so big ‘sorry l was wrong’ ๐Ÿ˜ขx

    Best wishes

    Haha I can completely relate to wanting to wear a tank and shorts all summer up but have to dress up for *the blog*. It’s so interesting though, because as much as we love fashion, we can be pretty lazy about it from day to day and some people would never know our true passion IS actually clothes. It’s like me, I could wear jeans and a white short everyday for the rest of my life and be happy, but of course it gets a little boring for my readers haha. Beautiful style Ari, as always!

    It may be hot but in this you look very cool. The dress manages to look both a classic and yet also modern. Lovely look!
