Is it just me or do the days run together in the summer? Maybe it’s because I’m on retail schedule so pretty much every day is the same but I woke up today certain it was Saturday. (Just for clarification, it is Monday right?) But I’m still going to dress like it’s Saturday. It is summer after all and no one is going to stop me. Plus I added the earrings to make it weekday fancy. 

I do love summer time though; everything is more relaxed. The days feels so long, not endless but instead in a way that you don’t want them to end. We have yet to hang curtains in our bedroom so I wake up with the sun peeking through our bare windows every morning instead of the loud beep of an alarm. There is something so peaceful about summer to me. Everything slows down its pace just a bit, the days stretch late into the evening, and even my fast-moving brain with it’s lists and to-do’s becomes quiet. I like the summertime quiet, even if it means my long list of to-do’s will just have to wait.

  1. Let those to-dos wait Kendi! It’s so fun to just be in the moment during Summer. There are colder days ahead that are perfect for checking off nagging tasks! I’m loving that Madewell tote and your pretty Summer dress by the way.

  2. I feel like your hair got long overnight. But then again, it’s summer, so like you said, all the days run together I guess! Glad you’re enjoying the season πŸ™‚

    1. Really? I wish it would grow overnight! I feel every single day of the last two years of growing it out. It can’t get longer fast enough πŸ™‚

  3. That dress is adorable. I love the detailing at the top. And your shoes and bag are perfectly coordinated.

  4. Kendi, I’m in love with that dress. Thanks for sharing the link for buying it. I read the reviews, and people seem to agree that is runs small. Any advice on sizing? Thanks!

  5. The dress is adorable! I need it. I so agree with summertime being peaceful. It is a great time to slow down and let the day stretch into night without worrying about the long lists of to-dos. I’m with ya sister!

  6. LOVE the dress! Clicked through and saw it’s actually a cover-up … so my question is: does it need a slip? Or is it heavy enough fabric to wear alone?

      1. So I bought this dress (and you are correct – it is a dress even without a slip under it … although I do wear a slip) and have worn it almost every day since! So comfortable! So perfect for hot summer days! And I’ve gotten a ton of compliments! Thanks for sharing (wearing) this one!!

  7. Looks super comfy and cute! Hey whatever happened to the shoemint giveaway? I actually ended up buying 3 of their shoes this past week when they had 50% off of sale items. I mean… how can you not?!

  8. Do you love that bag? I am considering getting one and I notice it in a lot of your posts.

  9. Love the dress – and I love your words on summer. That’s definitely how it felt this weekend (UGH is it 5 yet?! I think it is where you are, but I’ve still got a couple hours to go).

    p.s. – there’s a Lilac Bijoux Giveaway on the blog today! See Mo Go.

  10. Hi, I was also wondering about the sheerness of this dress…. What kind of slip do you have under it?
